DICA will debut a new addition to the ProStack Cribbing product line designed for the types of equipment used in the electrical utility industry. ProStack interlocking cribbing blocks will be on display along with a variety of the company’s Outrigger Pads and Crane Pads at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE), Oct. 1-3, 2019, in Louisville, Ky.
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 compatibility with SafetyTech Outrigger Pads gives utility line workers 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 critical 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 proven performance , durability and ease of use for setting up mobile cranes, concrete pumpers, aerial lifts and digger derricks. Popular with utilities are DICA’s Hi-Viz 18”x18” and 24”x24” SafetyTech Outrigger Pads due to their unbreakable strength, lightweight, and ease of use. In addition, specific setup needs can be met with DICA’s Cavity Pad Plus, Cleated, Sliding Shoe, and Pole Puller Pads.
For situations that require greater outrigger pad 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.
For higher capacity cranes, FiberMax Crane Pads weigh 60% less than typical solutions and are designed for exceptional load distribution, stability, and cost effective operation. Unmatched ROI results from lower transportation costs, labor and handling costs, and their long life.
These, and other DICA products will be in use at many OEM equipment displays, including Terex, Altec, Dur-A-Lift, Elliott, Hiab, Manitowoc, Skylift, Spiradrill, and TIME/Versalift equipment.
