FAQs about Arch Spreaders

What is an arch spreader?

  • Mostly used to get maximum clearance for bore-pits and large-diameter pipes, arch spreaders raise the clearance from the underside of the trench shield spreader to the bottom of the excavation.  

How much clearance can be added with an arch spreader?

  • Typically, using an arch spreader will help raise clearance 5 ft. to 8 ft. However, one note of education is that loads increase rapidly on the arch spreader as the clearance is increased.
