Rugged pads for outriggers
20 March 2008
The Dunnage Pad is the latest offering from DICA USA. Available in three sizes, the heaviest weighs 60 pounds and has multiple rope handles for easy lifting and quick set-up.
The pads are designed as a lightweight alternative to heavy and awkward wood pads and blocks that weigh more than 100 pounds and need several people to set in place.
The pads come in three sizes of 12 or 18 inches by 48 inches by 2 inches, and 24 inches by 48 inches by 1 inch. All pads are manufactured from UHMW based polymer material and are designed to be lightweight, nonconductive, moisture resistant and durable.
All of the company's pads feature its “Safety Texturing,” a feature designed to enhance outrigger foot-to-pad and pad-toground traction. This traction is a safety bene. t for the operating crew. The safety texturing, coupled with DICA's engineered pads, have load capacities up to 70 tons per pad.
