About Tunnel Access PitsP1010020

ICON Tunnel Systems offers all Trenchless Contractors the unique opportunity to own the world’s strongest and most versatile slide rail system for use in sheeting and shoring Tunnel Access Pits for Microtunneling, Auger Boring, Pipe Jacking, Pipe Ramming, Slip Lining and More. For decades contractors have constructed these pits out of traditional shoring materials such as Wood or Steel Driven Sheet Piling which can be extremely labor intensive and much slower than other shoring methods available today.


ICON Slide Rail Shoring Systems have been field proven by having supplied more than 8,500 projects in the USA and around the world for customers that have saved an average of 30% to 50% when directly compared to traditional shoring methods such as wood or steel driven sheet piling. ICON’s Slide Rail System uses a “Dig and Push” method of installation where the contractor can effectively dig and sheet the excavation at the same exact time. All components of our slide rail system are made in the USA at our manufacturing facility in East Brunswick, NJ. ICON stocks all small parts and components for the system at all times for fast delivery to your yard or jobsite to eliminate as much downtime as possible. If your system is damaged and in need of repair our trained technical repair department will assess the damage for you, fix the equipment and then our in house shipping department will quickly return it to you.
