Reinforced Outrigger Pads Enhance Jobsite Safety

Composite Advantage, Dayton, Ohio, has introduced FiberRigg, a high-performance Fiber-Reinforced-Polymer (FRP) crane outrigger pad that outlasts wood pads and is more cost effective than UHMW plastic pads. Able to hold up to 125,000 pounds, FiberRigg is suited to any type of construction or building activity requiring the use of crane equipment.

Continuous glass fibers provide maximum strength and stiffness for enhanced safety while its polymer makeup resists chemicals and water degradation. Stronger, yet lighter for easy transportation and use, FiberRigg has a non-slip wear surface. The FRP composite pad can span soft areas while supporting high concentrated loads. Operators can achieve precise placement and enjoy optimum equipment performance without fear of shifting or tipping.

FiberRigg retains performance over its life cycle and is available in bio-resins such as corn and soy. The product features embedded nylon strap handles and can be ordered in safety yellow or custom colors, as well as circular shapes or rectangular with rounded corners. FiberRigg is offered in standard sizes and can be easily tailored to sizes specified by the customer. Minimum orders are not required and volume pricing is available.

Composite Advantage manufactures large fiber reinforced composite parts, up to 52 feet, for structurally demanding applications and corrosive environments. Products range from vehicle and pedestrian bridges and bridge decks, large structural walls, roofs and panels, to high performance pads and mats.
