A Better Outrigger Pad

The World Wide Leader

DICA Outrigger Pads are trusted by operators in 40+ countries and on 6 continents around the world. Our crane stabilizer pads are put to the test daily in demanding environments such as all five branches of the U.S. armed forces, NASA, nuclear facilities, and electric utility, crane, mining, and drilling operations around the world. 

Stiffer & Stronger Proprietary Material

Every SafetyTech Outrigger Pad is Guaranteed Unbreakable and built using DICA’s exclusive proprietary engineered material which is stiffer and stronger than look-a-like stabilizer pads. The superior performance of DICA Stabilizer Pads is demonstrated in our crush ratings, working load limits, and maximum rated capacities.

Ergonomic TuffGrip Handles

Our stabilizer pads’ TuffGrip Handles are Guaranteed Unbreakable, comfortable, waterproof, UV, hydraulic fluids, and road chemical resistant. Their HI-VIZ safety orange color also makes them easy to see and communicates your commitment to safety.  The rigidity and length of every TuffGrip Handle significantly reduces the risk of trip hazards.

Patented Technology

DICA Outrigger Pads have been awarded six patents that cover the innovative handle and stabilizer pad designs that make our pads super strong, ergonomic and easy to use. DICA Outrigger Pads are also the only engineered crane stabilizer pad that is available in 3D Lift Plan.

Sizing Your Outrigger Pads

Everyday Fitting Process

The purpose of our Everyday Pad Sizing Process is to assist customers with selecting Outrigger and Crane Pads for their specific equipment and situation that meet or exceed defined everyday operational needs.

Our 3 step process identifies the equipment loads and specifies a target ground bearing pressure to identify the outrigger pad area required to meet the specific inputs. Choose “Request a Quote” below to start this process.

FIT Assessment

A FIT Assessment is a DICA report that includes product recommendations and verifications based on customer inputs specific to their equipment and situation. 

The report captures the Everyday Pad Sizing information and validates the product recommendation to ensure the area requirements and product ratings are in compliance. Choose “FIT Assessment” below to start this process.

FAQs

Q. What size outrigger pad do I need?
Great question. Please see our start your fitting page.  

Q. Are other plastic outrigger pads just like DICA’s?
No, they are definitely not the same.  DICA has developed a proprietary formula and specifications that maximize our product consistency, strength, performance, and rigidity.  

Q. Your competitor says their material comes from the same factory?
There are only a handful of factories in the world that can produce the quality of material that we have developed.  However, it is not the same material formula and does not have our specifications or performance.

Q. But, your competitor tells me their pads are the same as DICA’s, how can you prove your pads are better?
See our product ratings for the quantifiable performance of DICA SafetyTech Outrigger Pads. Then ask our competitors how they came up with their product ratings, how they developed them and if they can project how their pads will perform in different loading and ground conditions?

The truth is, the product ratings many of our competitors are using today are former DICA product ratings.  DICA did the work to develop the ratings many of our competitors are using today. DICA has developed its product ratings based on our material formulation, physical testing and FEA modeling in various soil conditions. Based on this data, we provide users with clear usage direction.  We know what we are selling, how it will perform and provide that information to customer daily.

Q. How do your outrigger pads compare to wood outrigger pads?
Wood is a natural material with a very high absorption rate. Due to absorption, wood fibers will splinter crack and break and have large variations of strength, stiffness, and reliability under pressure. All of which leads to unsafe conditions.  In comparison, Safety Tech Outrigger Pads constructed of DICA’s proprietary engineered thermoplastic are virtually impervious to absorption and are guaranteed against splintering, cracking and breaking because of their reliable molecular, strength and stiffness properties. For more information, please see our Safety Tech vs. Wood page.

Q. Do Safety Tech Outrigger Pads have a warranty?
Yes, put simply, “if you break it, we’ll replace it. Guaranteed.”  For more information see our warranty page.

Q. Can our company name be added to your outrigger pads?
Yes, we can engrave a company name or logo on the surface of all Safety Tech Outrigger Pads. ID stamping is also available on all square or rectangular pads.

Q. Do your outrigger pads conduct electricity or create static electricity?
No. please see our usage and inspection guidelines page.

Q. What are the minimum and maximum temperature operating ranges?
-40 to 180 Fahrenheit / -40 to 82.22 Celsius

Q. Do you offer custom outrigger pad sizes, shapes, and thicknesses?
Yes, in addition to our 30+ standard models we regularly work with customers to design outrigger pad products specific to their needs.

Q. Are your outrigger pads resistant to water and chemicals?
Yes, they are impervious to water and resistant to chemicals commonly found on construction sites, parking areas and roads. Please contact us if you are concerned about a particular chemical.
