Global tool and equipment manufacturer AME International recently added ‘The Slab’ to its product line.
A new cribbing item used to stabilise machinery during repair or maintenance, The Slab is a 55-pound piece of recycled plastic and high density polyethylene measuring six inches thick, 12 inches wide and 24 inches long, designed as a sturdy alternative in jobs that would splinter, crack, split and/or break wood cribbing.
AME’s President, Keith Jarman explains that the triangle patterned surface of The Slab provides interlock traction at various angles and connects with smaller cribs, making it easy to stack multiple pieces to create large platforms four to six feet high.
The Slab also comes with a lanyard at either end, allowing users to easily manoeuvre the piece of cribbing with little effort.
Since its launch, The Slab has made an impact worldwide with over 300 units in use at Caterpillar dealers worldwide.
