Speed Shore’s Manguard® safety shields are one of the most versatile excavation safety systems in the industry. Manguards® are specifically designed for personnel protection during manhole installations, line taps, vault placements and point repairs. Their cylindrical construction incorporates high-strength corrugated steel walls welded securely to rigid steel collars, with lifting eyes, stacking sockets and adjustable legs. Replaceable or permanent cut-outs are available to accommodate clearance of incoming services. Manguards® are light enough for installation with a rubber-tired backhoe and may be easily stacked in multiples for deeper applications. Standard models are available in 6’, 8.5’ and 10’ diameters in both 4’ and 8’ heights. Custom units are also available for unique applications and site-specific needs.
