Cribbing and Matting Co Pty Ltd introduces a new high performance range of recycled plastic cribbing systems engineered to provide optimum safety and durability when stabilising heavy loads.
Released throughout Australasia and South-East Asia, the lightweight, splinter-free, non-absorbent and environmentally sustainable Dura Crib and Dura Stat ranges were developed to replace older, weaker, less predictable wood cribbing systems that need constant ongoing replacement involving consumption of a finite resource.
The Dura Crib and Dura Stat systems find application in diverse industries such as construction and building, rescue and recovery, mining and resources, food processing and materials handling, industrial maintenance and safety, road and rail transport, and ports and shipping.
The precisely engineered and easily handled systems are used to quickly stabilise loads, including machinery and vehicles ranging from cars to heavy trucks. By ensuring stability quickly and easily in all industrial situations, it saves time and protects workers.
Supplied with a 50-year warranty against splitting, rotting, absorption, termites and mould, the Dura Crib and Dura Stat systems have been extensively proven under some of the world’s toughest safety regimes in the USA.
Cribbing and Matting Co Pty Ltd Managing Director Mr Tony Brooks explains that the new range is a complete proven system of integrated products that can be combined to provide comprehensive solutions across a wide range of industries.
Cribbing and Matting specialises in superior industrial strength stabilising products and matting solutions, offering complete solutions for particular applications rather than piecemeal product ranges.
Key benefits of the re-engineered plastic cribbing and blocking systems include 100 per cent recycled plastic construction for optimum durability; unmatched strength, stronger than oak, with a typical strength of 700-1200 psi; high stability and repeatability; resistant to gas, oil, chemicals and organic substances such as blood; laboratory tested; available in black and HI-VIS yellow; and suitable for both active cribbing, where a person is working nearby, and for passive cribbing, where cribbing is used to keep material off the ground to allow a forklift to operate.
According to Mr Brooks, fire and emergency departments, industrial plants, resources and mining workers have used wood to stabilise equipment, products and vehicles for years, despite the fact that it comes with knots, is absorbent, cracks, splits and splinters, and needs frequent replacement.
The 50-year warranty safeguards Dura Crib and Dura Stat for 50 years against such shortcomings while creating a safer, longer-lasting and more durable cribbing base that saves time and money in the long run.
