Quick Access Box

About Quick Access Box

The Quick Access Box is a small, light aluminium box developed to assist in minor works, emergency situations and general repairs to utility apparatus or similar. Each component is light enough to be handled manually and small enough to be transported in a van. Box weights start as low as 70kg. 

QAB units are designed to be used in short-term applications in stable, non-water bearing ground conditions. Pre-assembled with adjustable struts, it can be rapidly installed into a pre-dug trench by lowering from ground level thus providing a safe and effective shoring shield without operatives having to enter an un-supported excavation.
