safety equipment DICA

Line construction: DICA, manufacturer of SafetyTech® Outrigger Pads, has introduced a new product line designed for the high visibility needs of the electric utility and tree care industries.

“Yellow and orange SafetyTech outrigger pads have been available from DICA as a custom option for a number of years. With demand for these models continuing to grow, it’s the right time to add them to our standard SafetyTech line of outrigger pads,” said Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA.

Features and Benefits
The high visibility color of yellow and orange provides a clear visual reminder to think and act safely when setting up equipment on outrigger pads. Further, both yellow and orange contrast with the ground and paved surfaces, reducing the potential for lost pads.

“For years, many tree care and utility companies have made DICA’s original D1818 and D2424 outrigger pads a standard fleet product because of their unbreakable and reliable performance. We’re excited customers are taking advantage of the additional benefits our high visibility options offer,” said Dick Koberg, Founder and President of DICA.

Made from DICA’s premium engineered thermoplastic material, yellow and orange D1818 and D2424 outrigger pads are designed for stabilizer enabled equipment, which are common in electric utility and tree care application. The high visibility outrigger pads are available in 18x18x1 inch and 24x24x1 inch sizes. They are medium-duty models with strength capacity of 100,000 lbs. Like all SafetyTech outrigger pads, yellow and orange SafetyTech outrigger pads are backed by DICA’s unbreakable guarantee.

The full line of SafetyTech outrigger pads, including heavy duty models, can also be special ordered with high visibility yellow or orange options. Additional lead times apply.
