DICA introduced a new addition to its ProStack Cribbing product line at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE). ProStack Slot Lock Cribbing Blocks are engineered to stack and lock together, giving users the ability gain needed cribbing height in unlevel conditions. The new addition was developed with customer input and designed for use with the types of equipment used in utility, tree care, concrete construction, and crane and rigging markets.
The setup of a SafetyTech Base Pad and two ProStack Blocks has a 100,000-pound working load limit and a max allowable pressure of 500 psi. Slot Lock flanges interlock with a DICA SafetyTech base pad and with each subsequent block layer when positioned in alternating directions. Each layer increases cribbing height by five inches, and the surface allows room for outrigger feet measuring up to 18 inches by 18 inches.
Each ProStack Slot Lock block weighs less than 30 pounds, which minimizes operator fatigue and provides quick setup and breakdown times. Molded grips make it easy for one person to carry and position blocks, even when wearing gloves. TuffGrip handles can be added as an option to facilitate carrying two blocks at once. DICA’s Hi-Viz orange TuffGrip handles are waterproof and resistant to UV light, hydraulic fluids, and road chemicals.
Unlike most cribbing solutions commonly deployed in the field, ProStack’s engineered material is extremely strong and impervious to weather and jobsite conditions. ProStack Cribbing is made from a combination of post-consumer recycled material and additives to produce a strong, reliable, and environmentally friendly solution. All ProStack cribbing products are warrantied for 25 years against rot, insect infestation, splitting, cracking or splintering.
