About Vertical Shores
The Vertishore system comprises opposing vertical rails separated by hydraulic cylinders, designed to provide ground support in selfsupporting soils. The important principle behind the system is reliance on the soil ‘arching’ between the vertical support.
The units are designed to be installed from ground level by one man in a matter of seconds thus providing safe effective shoring without operatives having to enter an un-shored excavation. Each unit comprises two aluminium rails, expanded against the cut trench walls by a pair of interconnected hydraulic rams. The rams are expanded and pressured between the walls of the trench by a manually operated hand pump.
