GAP is boxing clever with new product

GAP Hire Solutions has announced it has added trench boxes to its non-mechanical plant offering.

Used for the rapid shoring of trench runs, the boxes are said to provide a “quick and easy” solution to ensure ground stability. GAP said the products also help mimimise the excavation area, which has the advantage of helping to avoid damaging neighbouring structures and utilities.

Vicky Hesson, GAP’s non-mechanical southern operations manager said, “This is a positive move into trenching and shoring and further demonstrates to our customers that GAP can be a single point of contact for equipment hire in the construction industry.

“In preparation for the new products arriving at our depots, staff have been trained in the handling, selling, assembly and installation of trench boxes. They are now ready for hire from any one of GAP’s non-mechanical plant depots which are strategically placed across the UK.”
