The thickness of the walls that make are 35, 40, 45, 50, 60, 80 and 100 centimetres, with a variable trench width depending on the type of scoop used. The scoops are suspended, operated by cable or hydraulic equipment. The terrain and desired depth will determine the type of scoop to be used.

Circular joints are the type of joint used between trenches (except for walls of 35cm width, where a flat joint is used) This joint is tight, due to the long flow of the water along the length of the tread, and has a good structural performance, producing a perfect union between consecutive panels. It also facilitates the advance execution of trenches with the tread providing a guide for the scoop.
