Plastic Cribbing for Heavy-Duty Stabilization Tasks
Enerpac has introduced a new system of
plastic cribbing blocks and wedges to optimize
safety when stabilizing heavy loads
after they have been lifted. The blocks—
intended as a more stable, longer-lasting
and easily cleaned alternative to wooden
blocks—feature an aggressively patterned,
slip-resistant pyramid locking surface for
stability in cribbing, chocking and shoring.
According to the company, plastic material
offers a stable, predictable load capacity
which deforms slowly under load because
of the homogeneous material used. The
cribbing won’t splinter or absorb most fluids
(subject to chemical compatibility
tests) and can be used for interlocking box
cribs, parallel cribs and triangle cribs.
Available in three sizes of cribbing blocks
and two sizes of wedges, the system, made
from recycled plastic, is available in different
combinations of wedges and blocks in
nylon carrying totes.
