Slide Rail Shoring Systems
ICON is known as the original pioneer of this type of shoring system in the U.S.A. ICON’s slide rail shoring systems are made of high yield, Grade 50 steel and are comprised of lineal panels, rails or posts and bracing that enable the contractor to install 2, 3 and 4 sided pits and trenches for a variety of excavations and different soil conditions. ICON manufactures and rents slide rails in either a single, double or triple rail design with a choice of Roller Rail Frames (Struts) or Fixed Position Braces for the contractor.
“Dig and Push” method of installation eliminates the need for vibratory hammers, increases production by 50% and decreases labor by 30% to 40% on average versus conventional sheeting.
Pilot Tube Guided Auger Boring
Pilot Tube Guided Auger Boring was developed in Germany by Dr. Peter Uffman of Bohrtec for the installation of trenchless house connection sewer pipes. The technology was later developed further to install mainline sanitary sewer pipes on line and grade over 300’ + from manhole to manhole as an alternative to expensive tunnel boring machines. ICON Tunnel Systems is the exclusive distributor for Bohrtec pilot tube guided auger boring equipment in the United States and Canada.
“By using the pilot tube trenchless method of installing underground utilities, water lines and sanitary sewers, you can reduce costs by 50% when compared to complicated laser controlled microtunneling systems”.

The Right Equipment for The Right Job with the Right Experience
ICON offers lightweight aluminum hydraulic shoring as one of the safest, most versatile means and methods of shoring even the most difficult excavation. Typically one worker can safely and effectively shore a trench as quickly as it is excavated, allowing the excavator to operate at full digging capacity. Active preloading of trench walls maintains the vertical trench sides, preventing soil from moving or collapsing inward.
Steel Road Plates
Steel Road Plates are used by almost every utility and construction company around the world for covering trenches, protecting roadways or used in a vertical shoring application such as H-Beam and Plate. ICON rents, sells and services 32,000 square feet of steel road plate and our inventory is growing every year. Our engineering department can provide P.E. stamped drawings and calculations for H-20 traffic loading as well as bridge decking designs for custom projects.
