The unique benefits of micro-trenching technology


Our narrow and shallow trench technology solutions have the lowest impact on the environment when compared to alternative installation techniques. A reduction in transport and disposal costs also has a huge beneficial impact on the environment.

Our machinery is all hooded and soundproofed to ensure reduced dust and noise pollution. 

Other benefits of using Marais Micro Trenchers :

  • Rapid installation rate of up to 600 metres per day, minimising traffic disruption

  • Reduced disturbance to motorists and pedestrians

  • Containment of rubble and dust

  • Backfilling with thermally tested and/or excavated material to ensure strong integration of the trench in the road structure and a long lifespan
