ALTRAD RMD Kwikform (ARMDK), a major temporary works’ systems provider, has launched a free guide, offering advice on how trench boxes can save lives and help reduce on-site costs.

The guide identifies the main trench hazards and introduces trench boxes as a safety solution, detailing why they should be considered an essential piece of equipment for excavations.

There are also tips on how to spot the signs of an imminent cave in, and information to help readers understand the benefits of assured safety, increased cost savings, ease and simplicity, and greater flexibility. Insight is offered into how ARMDK’s trench boxes compare with other systems too.
