Shoring Equipment Upkeep

Inspecting and Maintaining Our Safety Equipment


At North East Shoring Corp., Inc., we don’t just sell or rent shoring equipment to construction companies and plumbers in New England. We run the entire operation including equipment delivery and the inspection and maintenance of all of our equipment. Not only does clean trenching equipment look much nicer and present a professional image to the general public, but it allows us to inspect for corrosion and deficits that require repair. Don’t worry, we make those repairs too! When you rent or buy shoring equipment from North East Shoring, you can count on equipment that’s in tip-top shape.

What Upkeep We Do

At North East Shoring Corp., Inc., we rent and sell new and used shoring equipment that includes trench shields, rock boxes, road plates, and cranes. All of this equipment exists for the sole purpose of protecting the workers on construction or excavation sites. This means that the equipment we supply literally means the difference between safety and compromise. To keep the equipment doing what it is supposed to do, we take our time to maintain it. As soon as our equipment makes it back to our lot, we immediately mark it and inspect it before it is stored with equipment that is ready to ship.

To keep our equipment looking its best and worthy of representing your company at your worksite, we clean it and touch up any paint. This isn’t all vein cosmetics but allows us to identify any corrosion and see any integrity violations that are easily hidden by caked-on mud. Our bold orange paint is freshened up to ensure it can be seen (and meets OSHA standards).

If there are any issues with the joints or materials, we can either scrap them for recycling, or we can make the necessary repairs in our on-site welding shop.

What We Are Looking For in the Inspection

OSHA makes it incredibly easy for us to create our own inspection and maintenance checklists for our shoring equipment by creating their own list of trench shield inspection repairs.


  • Box walls: the walls of the trench box are what keeps the earth from collapsing. Sometimes, these walls can begin to bow under the pressure. Careful inspection must be completed to prevent reusing trench shields whose walls are compromised. Walls are inspected for punctures, dents, warping, and waffling. If repairs cannot be made, the shield will be retired and recycled.
  • End beams: are inspected for bending. Bending is caused by overstress and can cause collapse if used again.
  • Spreader receivers: are inspected for corrosion and stress cracks. These elements take a great attention to detail and if not inspected carefully, can lead to the shield rotating inward.
  • Spreaders: are inspected for stress cracking and roundness. A compromised spreader can cause buckling and collapse of the entire structure.
  • Pins and headers: are inspected for correct diameter, steel rating, and shape integrity. If they are not the correct size, steel rating, or they are bent or misshapen, they will be replaced.
  • Top beams: are inspected for crushing and stress cracks as a result of pounding.
Our welders are certified to perform the necessary repairs, and all of our equipment has our name boldly printed on it. We would never rent or sell any equipment we would not use ourselves. When you rent or buy shoring equipment from North East Shoring, you can rest assured it is in optimal working condition and will keep the trenches (and OSHA) off your back.
