DICA has expanded its ProStack cribbing products to include smaller medium-duty interlocking blocks and pad sizes. The reduced size is specifically designed for truck-mounted aerial lifts and digger derricks where additional cribbing height is needed to support and stabilize the equipment in unlevel environments.
Like the original heavy-duty ProStack cribbing, the smaller medium-duty size has an engineered interlocking design that safely provides additional height under outrigger floats for increased cribbing height.
Both medium and heavy-duty ProStack cribbing setups are made up of three basic parts; a base SafetyTech outrigger pad, ProStack interlocking cribbing blocks, and a ProStack high-friction top grip pad. The base SafetyTech Outrigger Pad is manufactured with an interlocking pyramid surface. Operators then stack layers of ProStack Cribbing Blocks to the desired height. Lastly, a ProStack Grip Pad is placed on top of the stack to provide a high-friction surface for the outrigger foot and protect the pyramid surface on the cribbing blocks.
The new medium-duty ProStack cribbing is 6 inches thick, and 12 inches x 12 inches, which is half the size and weight of the heavy-duty six-inch-thick, 12-inch x 24-inch cribbing blocks. The medium-duty blocks weigh just 27 pounds each, and are intended to be used with 24-inch SafetyTech outrigger pads.
“The engineered material is strong, impervious to environmental conditions, and all components are ergonomically designed to be user-friendly,” said Kris Koberg, CEO. “By interlocking together, ProStack cribbing creates a more secure setup under the stabilizer or outrigger foot. This increases safety in situations where the ground is not level.”
