FIBER TECH
OUTRIGGER PADS

Designed to be moved by hand, and provide greater rigidity at a lower overall outrigger pad weight. 13+ layers of quad axial continuous glass fibers and vinyl ester resin are combined to give FiberTech Outrigger Pads exceptional structural strength and stiffness to distribute loads over larger areas.

Comparatively speaking, a one inch thick FiberTech Outrigger Pad weighs 25% less than a three inch thick SafetyTech Pad (same area) and provides the same load distribution performance.

  • Made in the USA.
  • Up to 750 psi crush ratings and 240,000 lbs. rated capacities.
  • FRP material, TuffGrip Handles, industrial grade safety texturing and non-conductive.
  • FiberTech Outrigger Mats are easy to clean and do not absorb bacteria or other pollutants which eliminates site to site contamination.

PRODUCT BENEFITS

01
Engineered Strength

Crush ratings start at 600 psi and rated capacities go up to 240,000 lbs. FiberTech Pads deliver support for outrigger-enabled equipment in a hand moveable outrigger pad.

02
Extreme Rigidity

Get maximum rigidity, strength and stability in a lighter weight pad. FiberTech Pads effectively spread loads over large areas on all types of ground, including poor soil.

03
Longlasting Durability

FiberTech FRP Mats have a 20+ year service life. Unaffected by fluids, chemicals or UV, they won’t rust or degrade in the most extreme heat, cold or maritime environments.

04
Easy Handling

Recessed TuffGrip Handles make carrying and rolling FiberTech Outrigger Mats easier, safer and less fatiguing than heavier wood outrigger pads or thermoplastic mats.

SUPER DUTY

Equipment:
Off Rubber, Concrete Pump Trucks, Aerial Lifts, Digger Derricks, Boom Trucks, Self Erecting Tower Cranes, Mobile Substations, Rock Crushers, Scaffolding, Service Trucks, Tow Trucks, Forestry Trucks, Well Drilling Trucks, Knuckle Boom Cranes, Carrier Mounted Tower Cranes.

Typical Use:
Medium sized equipment with reaction forces up to 100,000 lbs. Stability and load distribution needs are high.

We absolutely love our FiberTech Pads. They reduce manual handling on every job and have the equivalent surface area of 40 hard wood timbers. One person can roll these composite pads around with ease, which reduces the risk of short cuts compared with using timber pads.

These FiberTech Outrigger Pads are bulletproof!

I really tested these mats, constant crane relocation, heavy lift set up, trying to stabilize the ground to support all of the gross load weights. FiberTech pads made my job a lot easier and safer.

DICA’s FiberTech Pads seem to be the perfect blend of manageable weight and good stiffness. Thanks again for a fantastic product, super happy with the pads!

Our new FiberTech Outrigger Pads are working out really well. I was able to reduce my set up and tear down time by at least an hour per set up working by myself, and even faster when I had the convenience of a crew working with me.

FiberTech Outrigger Pads are made of Fiber-Reinforce Polymers (FRP). This is a composite material made of a vinylester polymer that is reinforced with specially designed fiberglass.

No. This is one of the significant advantages of fiberglass materials. These same materials are used in the most corrosive environments in the world and will outperform wood crane pads in the most common situations. Nothing encountered on a typical job site will have any effect on the fiberglass materials used in FiberTech Outrigger Pads.

Wet or dry environments have no effect on our fiberglass materials and will not limit their service life. The same material is utilized for applications in submerged salt water and extremely dry desert environments. The typical failure of these pads would be from damage during handling. You can expect 20+ years of service life from FiberTech Outrigger Pads.

UV will not affect the structural integrity of the crane mats for at least 40 years. The resins in the crane mats have UV inhibitors that greatly slow UV degradation. We also apply a secondary coating that also has extremely good UV stabilization.

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, FiberTech Outrigger Pads constructed of FiberReinforced Polymers are virtually impervious to absorption and have reliable molecular, strength and stiffness properties.

-40°F to 131°F / -40C to +55C. FiberTech Outrigger Pads will work outside this range, but there will begin to be a reduction in performance. Please contact us if this is a concern for you.

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.

Neoprene is a fantastic solution for all of our load distribution products. It allows our products to flex a little on hard surfaces which allows for significantly improved load distribution.
