Dual 3-Inch End Shores
The Pacific Shoring Products Dual 3-Inch End Shores are composed of two 3-inch hydraulic cylinders mounted on 18- or 24-inch heavy-duty rails. Each of the 3-inch cylinders provides a 40,000 lb. safe working load and can extend from 18 in. to 120 in., cylinder extensions can be used to obtain larger spans. Dual 3-Inch End Shores are designed to work in trenches from 4 ft. to 20 ft. in depth and 2 ft. to 16 ft. wide spans. Sheeting is set behind the Dual 3-Inch End Shore against the trench wall to prevent trench wall collapse and raveling. This end shore application must be used in conjunction with independent linear shoring systems that protect the trench walls. The Pacific Shoring Dual 3-Inch End Shores are used when more pressure is needed in a concentrated area of an excavation wall. One application of this is for shoring the ends of a trench.
