Panora, IA – November 9, 2011 – DICA introduces the TuffGrip® Handle System, a new safety feature available on the company’s line of Safety Tech Outrigger Pads. Constructed of an extremely tough thermoplastic, the TuffGrip Handle System is the toughest and safest handle DICA has ever offered and is guaranteed against breakage.
In addition to toughness, the new handle system is designed to improve ergonomic safety. It does so by providing a lifting point that does not exceed 50 lbs. per person and has a handle length that encourages operators to use proper lifting technique.
For improved jobsite safety, the TuffGrip Handle System’s reduced length design and high visibility safety orange color helps eliminate trip hazards. TuffGrip Handles are also resistant to UV, chemicals, hydraulic fluid and water, ensuring their lifetime durability.Handle diameters are 0.5” thick for all 1” and 1.5” thick pads, while 2” thick outrigger pads have a 5/8” thick handle.
The TuffGrip Handle System is currently available on DICA’s Safety Tech® Outrigger Pads and can also be purchased separately for retrofit applications.
