Shoring beams, also known as decking beams, are a versatile addition to your cargo securement setup.
Their primary purpose is to safely secure your cargo inside your trailer to prevent shifting. This protects the surrounding cargo and your trailer from movement-related damage.
The other popular usage is to create decking. Simply add two or more shoring beams at the same height on your E-track, then secure a piece of plywood to the tops. This shelving allows you to make the most of your valuable trailer space - you can store smaller cargo, create a secondary level of shoring beam barriers, and more.

Note: Make sure the cargo you are storing on your decking does not exceed the working load limit of your decking beams.
Shoring beams attach to your trailer walls, ceiling, or floor using a cargo securement system called E-track.
Each end has an E-track fitting, and their length is adjustable, so customizing your setup is simple. When you are ready to take the beams down, the easy-to-use release mechanism can be operated even while wearing safety gloves.
Aluminum load bars are high-strength yet lightweight with a working load limit of 2,200 lbs.
The steel version is durable and strong, with a working load limit of 1,500 lbs.
Create your own decking beam with wood end sockets. This socket clips into your E-track and can hold a piece of 2x4 lumber.
Keep your shoring beams secure when not in use with a shoring beam holder. It can contain up to six bars, or it can be used to hold ratchet straps, shovels, or other trailer equipment.
