DICA Outrigger Pads gets in on the act at The Demo Expo

Posted on September 16, 2015


In the spirit of The Demo Expo, where attendees can test run utility and construction equipment, DICA Outrigger Pads (Booth #2141) announces that SafetyTech® Outrigger Pads will provide proper setup foundation for many outrigger-enabled machines on display at the ICUEE Show.

Made of engineered thermoplastic material, with crush ratings up to 750 psi and maximum allowable load ratings up to 300,000 pounds, SafetyTech outrigger pads have a long standing track record of proven safety benefits. Guaranteed to be unbreakable, SafetyTech also provides user-friendly features including indestructible and comfortable TuffGrip® handles and ergonomic corners and edges.

Round SafetyTech Outrigger Pads with TuffGrip® handles are patented in the US and Canada with patents pending on square and rectangular models of SafetyTech Outrigger Pads.

Special duty models such as Cavity, Cleated and High-Viz Safety Yellow models provide proven solutions for utility applications.

“DICA has a long history of partnering with OEMs and utilities to develop outrigger pads in specific sizes, shapes, and thicknesses to meet specific application requirements. As early as the 1990s, our founder Dick Koberg regularly sought input from OEMs, such as Altec, Terex Utility, Asplundh, and Schwing,” said Kris Koberg, CEO. “Those OEM relationships and others continue to develop and we are honored that SafetyTech outrigger pads are widely trusted and prominently featured in a large number of OEM booths at ICUEE.”

Attendees to the International Construction and Utility Equipment Expo, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2015, Louisville, K.Y., will see SafetyTech® outrigger pads used in more than 10 OEM displays of bucket trucks, cranes, and drilling devices.

In addition, DICA is the official Outrigger Pad Sponsor for the Crane Operator & Rigger Championship, which takes place on Tuesday, Sept. 29, hosted by Crane Institute Certification, Crane & Rigging Hot Line magazine, and Altec in Area K-129. The only crane operator recognition program of this scale in North America, the Crane Operator & Rigger Skills Competition underscores the role training, certification, and experience plays in safe crane operation. Operators will be competing on an Altec AC45-127S, set up on SafetyTech DR42-2 outrigger pads.
