DICA will introduce Cavity Pad Plus outrigger pads and reveal design updates to ProStack interlocking cribbing at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE), to be held Oct. 3-5 in Louisville, Ky. DICA will be at Booth 3551. 

The Cavity Pad Plus model joins DICA’s SafetyTech Outrigger Pad product line. SafetyTech Outrigger Pads provide a strong, rigid, and easy-to-use foundation for a wide variety of outrigger-enabled equipment, including mobile cranes, digger derricks, hi-lift aerials, and concrete pumps.

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 of the outrigger pad.

Constructed of a proprietary engineered thermoplastic material, SafetyTech pads have crush ratings up to 750 psi and rated capacities up to 325,000 pounds. At the show, DICA will also 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 Kris Koberg, CEO.

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.

DICA plans to make additional product announcements at the show, and the company's outrigger pads, cribbing, and training products can be seen in action at many OEM equipment displays. SafetyTech outrigger pads will be displayed with Altec, Dur-A-Lift, Elliott, Hiab, Manitowoc, Skylift, Spiradrill, Terex, and TIME/Versalift equipment. Altec will also show ProStack cribbing and the TrainSmart Pole Barrier System.
