Shoring is the act of applying pressure back upon the earth, as a way to prevent the sides of an excavation from collapsing. This can be done by using shoring systems (hydraulic vertical shores, hydraulic walls, hydraulic manhole braces, slide rail, etc.). Shielding is a passive system. Whereas shoring is designed to prevent the collapse of an excavation, shielding is designed to protect workers in the event of an excavation collapse. Shielding can be done in a variety of ways, from static steel and aluminum to trench shields, to modular aluminum trench shields.
