The BTRENCHSAFE® Access/Egress Shoring Platform and Telescopic Walkway provides multiple users with a safe means of access and egress to and from the ground excavation and allowing users a safe 3-points of contact at all times.

The use of this equipment in some Australian Territories, States or work places may require documented training from a Registered Training Organization (RTO) therefore BTS recommends that you discuss with your local regulatory authority what qualifications are required before using the system.

The system is designed to be mounted on the top edge of a shoring system (aluminium or steel) which is capable of safely supporting the weight of the system plus all static and dynamic loads that may be applied to the system during use.
There must be enough of the top edge of the shoring structure exposed to allow the platform to be secured using the clamp screws. The Shoring Platform also requires that there is enough width between the shoring box struts to allow the access ladder to sit at a suitable angle (as per industry guidelines, an angle of 4:1 is preferred unless the system has been set up to use the ladder vertically)
