Sept. 3, 2019 - DICA will debut a new addition to the ProStack cribbing product line, the ProStack interlocking cribbing blocks, along with showcasing a variety of outrigger pads and crane pads, at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE) on Oct. 1-3 in Louisville, Kentucky.
The new ProStack Cribbing product is a lighter weight and lower cost solution that was developed with customer input to meet the specific needs of this market.
“DICA’s new ProStack Cribbing product is a perfect fit for aerial devices, digger derricks, and boom trucks,” said Kris Koberg, CEO. “The combination of variable height, interlocking stackability, and compability with SafetyTech Outrigger Pads gives utility line workers the safety, stability, and versatility they need when working in unlevel environments.”
Utility crews often need additional height under stabilizers and outriggers to level equipment during operations. ProStack cribbing blocks are an engineered, integrated solution that resolves this problem. The interlocking blocks can be stacked for additional height to create a safer set-up than traditional methods. ProStack cribbing is made from a combination of post-consumer recycled and new materials to produce a strong and reliable finished product that interlocks into a SafetyTech outrigger pad.
SafetyTech-engineered thermoplastic outrigger pads deliver performance , durability, and ease of use for setting up, aerial lifts, digger derricks, mobile cranes, etc. Popular with utilities are DICA’s Hi-Viz 18” x 18” and 24” x 24” SafetyTech outrigger pads due to their strength, light weight, and ease of use.
For situations that require greater rigidity and stability in a lighter weight solution, the company’s FiberMax fiber-reinforced polymer outrigger pads provide an engineered alternative to heavy steel plate or excessive matting materials.
