DICA’s patented TuffGrip® Handles provide excellent ergonomic benefits for operators. They are comfortable and strong, yet flexible and incredibly durable. Made from engineered thermoplastic material they reduce cutting, pinching and fatigue caused by typical rope, cable and chain handles.
TuffGrip Handles on round SafetyTech® and FiberTech Outrigger Pads are recessed within the pad and do not extend beyond the perimeter of the pad edge. This patented design allows for safe, unincumbered rolling, easy sliding, and lifting of the pads.
The exclusive design gives the operator the option of rolling the pads to avoid carrying them altogether. TuffGrip Handle lengths also help encourage proper lifting posture and technique.
For ProStack® Pyramid Lock Cribbing Blocks, a single TuffGrip Handles is installed on the block edge and angled 45 degrees for the most ergonomic and efficient carrying position.
“The handle is an important part of making DICA Outrigger Pads and ProStack Cribbing Blocks safe and easy to use, regardless of the size or shape of the product,” said Kris Koberg. “Since 2011, TuffGrip Handles have been as strong, dependable and beneficial to operators and organizations as our engineered outrigger pads and cribbing blocks on which their installed.”
TuffGrip Handles provide five key benefits:
- Comfortable to grasp, lift, carry, slide or pull
- Compact and rigid to reduce tripping hazards
- High visibility safety orange color
- Guaranteed unbreakable strength
- Resistant to UV, hydraulic fluid, and road chemicals
