DICA is now issuing model specific owner’s manuals with all FiberMax Crane Pad orders. Each manual includes inspection and usage guidelines, technical specifications, and warranty information.
Development of the owner’s manual came at the suggestion of crane rental firms who needed documentation to show site owners the performance characteristics of FiberMax Crane Pads.
Actual load distribution of any pad or mat is highly dependent on the characteristics of the ground below the pad. Because FiberMax Crane Pads are made from lightweight composite materials that are not subject to the environment, the actual performance of the pads can be quantified and projected. Deflection and maximum ground pressure projection charts are included in each model specific owner’s manual. More detailed information for specific lifts is available directly from DICA.
DICA recommends the FiberMax owner’s manual be kept in the cab of each crane for which FiberMax Crane Pads were purchased.
