DICA has announced it will introduce the Cavity Pad Plus outrigger pads and show design updates to ProStack interlocking cribbing at the ICUEE show, which will be held Oct. 3-5 in Louisville, Ky.
The Cavity Pad Plus model joins the company’s SafetyTech outrigger pad product line. Constructed of thermoplastic material, SafetyTech pads have crush ratings up to 750 psi and rated capacities up to 325,000 pounds. The Cavity Pad Plus features a 1-inch-high footbrake with an interior beveled edge. The inverted bevel design traps the outrigger foot, which prevents it from sliding off the pad.
“This is a significant improvement in the design of our original Cavity Pad,” said Kris Koberg, CEO. “The inverted beveled design creates a higher level of safety. In addition, the new design contributed to reductions in manufacturing costs enabling us to pass savings onto our customers.”
At the show, DICA also will feature SafetyTech Hi-Viz outrigger pads available in yellow or orange. “Hi-Viz SafetyTech outrigger pads are a common safety department request from many utility companies,” said Koberg. Made from DICA’s proprietary engineered thermoplastic material, yellow and orange D1818 (18”x18”x1”) and D2424 (24”x24”x1”) pads are designed for stabilizer-enabled equipment frequently used in electric utility applications.
