Since it was established in 2009, our Non-Mechanical Plant division has grown considerably, now spanning 14 strategically placed depots throughout the UK.In addition to all types of fencing and barriers, GAP’s Non-Mechanical division also offers customers trench boxes, bogmats, magnetic rail barriers, road plates and more.
In April 2018, GAP purchased MV Trench Support, a Scottish based trenching and shoring company. The acquisition brought a wealth of trenching and shoring experience to GAP, allowing GAP to take a major stride towards the addition of a specialised Trenching & Shoring division.
Trench Boxes are used for the rapid shoring of trench runs, providing a quick and easy solution to ensure ground stability. The innovative products also help to minimise the excavation area, avoiding damage to neighbouring structures and utilities in the ground.
Available nationwide, GAP offers the following for hire:
- Mini and Maxi Drag Boxes
- Backhoe Boxes
- Aluminium Trench Boxes / Light Boxes
- Standard Boxes
- Manhole Boxes
- Manhole Shutters
- Manhole Braces
- Trench Sheets
The Aluminium Trench Boxes are designed to be used horizontally and can be stacked three deep to 3,600m. Alternatively, a single unit can be inverted for small shafts with the option of repositioning the spreader bars.
The brand-new equipment is available for immediate hire nationwide from only £40 per week. Please call 0333 202 0713 or email email@example.com for more details.
Our new Double Acting Manhole Brace range is proving popular with the utilities, construction and infrastructure sectors. Easy to assemble with pinned connections, they are available in lengths from 2-6 squared metres.

GAP is constantly reinvesting in our product fleet, people and processes to ensure our customers get the hire experience and quality they deserve onsite. With generous stock levels and our own transport, we can offer a quick response time for urgent requirements. If you can’t come to us, our bespoke vehicles can come to you with Hiab delivery and collection, ultimately giving you more time to get the job done.
Additionally, did you know that GAP also offers a temporary works design service which is available on all trenching and shoring products? We work closely with our customers to supply the relevant product required by site - this often requires a site visit by our knowledgeable staff to discuss various options with site and obtain the best solution for our customers.
