DICA Safety Tech and FiberMax Products

DICA Outrigger Pads exhibited its Safety Tech outrigger pads and FiberMax outrigger pads, crane pads and crane mats at the recent Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference.

The Safety Tech line offers medium- and heavy-duty outrigger pads. Measuring 1-inch thick, the medium-duty pads are constructed of engineered thermoplastic material and feature industrial-grade safety texturing. The heavy-duty pads measure 2 inches thick and are designed to support rough terrain and truck-mounted cranes, as well as larger digger derricks and aerial lifts.

Launched in early 2014, DICA’s FiberMax Heavy Duty Outrigger Pads, Super Duty Crane Pads, and Mega Duty Crane Mats are made of fiber-reinforced polymers and feature higher rigidity properties than the Safety Tech product line. FiberMax Heavy Duty and Super Duty products have a high concentration of fiberglass reinforcements, which creates a crush strength in excess of 400,000 psi and an average flexural yield strength of 60,000 psi.
