December 29 - Since its introduction in early 2014, several new features have been developed for the FiberMax

The new features include a static dissipation strip, corner cribbing, and additional rigging hardware options. Each upgrade is designed to improve safety, ease of use, and productivity.

DICA Outrigger Pads adds that FiberMax® crane mats provide outstanding stability for both outrigger-enabled mobile cranes and crawler cranes in a wide variety of ground conditions. Weighing less than half the weight of steel crane mats, FiberMax crane mats have the ability to significantly reduce transportation costs and provide exceptional long-term ROI claims the company.

When stacking crane mats for storage, the new corner cribbing feature eliminates the need for operators to place temporary cribbing between each mat. This makes stacking the mats using a forklift more efficient and eliminates pinch hazards between stacked mats.

In addition to standard J-hooks, DICA now offers three new rigging hardware options including standard D-Rings, optional Crosby® Pivot Links, and a new stack & pin option, which secures four mats together for lifting as a single unit. This feature simplifies load securement for transportation and storage purposes.

"DICA FiberMax® cranes mats are proving themselves to be a dependable lightweight solution that are able to meet some of the most demanding environments around the world," claims Kris Koberg, ceo of DICA Outrigger Pads.
