DICA’s SafetyTech products are designed to be strong and unbreakable, delivering the consistent engineered performance that our customers and their crews rely on every day.
The TuffGrip handle system was introduced to help improve the long term durability of DICA outrigger pad products and provide an increased level of ergonomic safety for operators handling SafetyTech outrigger pads. Handle length is a small but important example of the innovative thinking in DICA’s TuffGrip handle design. Handle length is specifically designed to encourage proper lifting that requires bending and lifting with the legs. The handle length also helps minimize trip hazards on the job site and, when being carried, reduces the “flopping around” of the pad common with excessively long handles.
In addition, recessed handles are a key innovation on all round SafetyTech outrigger pads. The design allows for easy rolling of larger pads which reduces lifting stress and the potential for back injuries. Lastly, the TuffGrip handle material itself is an incredibly strong, yet comfortable, engineered thermoplastic. It’s backed by DICA’s unbreakable guarantee and resistant to UV degradation and chemical or water corrosion.
