Exel Composites and Eze Shoring Develop Lightweight Construction Equipment

Exel Composites and UK company Eze Shoring have partnered to develop a lightweight, easy to use trench shoring concept for the construction industry.

Trench cave-ins present a significant danger to workers on a construction site. Shoring is the process of bracing the trench walls to prevent collapse. Based on 30 years of experience working in the construction industry, Glenn Wood, Managing Director of Eze Shoring and inventor of the new composites concept, recognised that the heavy, complex steel shoring equipment currently in use was in need of improvement. Feedback on his lightweight, simplified composite prototype was positive but in order to offer a competitively priced product to the market a cost effective, high volume manufacturing technology was essential. Wood selected pultruder Exel Composites as his manufacturing partner.

Following two years of collaboration with Exel, Eze Shoring is set to introduce its concept worldwide. The versatile system consists of four individual glass fibre reinforced pultruded composite profiles, offering a number of benefits:

  • lightweight for ease of transport and handling
  • easy to assemble – no interlocking parts, pins, clips or hydraulics; and
  • 100% non-conductive, a major benefit when working near electricity cables.

Eze Shoring recently signed a substantial deal with a large global distributor of construction equipment.

“With Eze Shoring’s global product, Exel Composites’ global support and presence, and a global distribution partner, we now have the perfect partnership for success,” notes Glenn Wood.
