DICA Debuts Addition to ProStack Product Line
Oct. 1, 2019 (Guthrie Center, Iowa) DICA debuts a new addition to the ProStack® Cribbing product line at the
International Construction and Utility Equipment Expo (ICUEE), Oct. 1-3, 2019, in Louisville, Ky. ProStack Slot
Lock Cribbing Blocks are engineered to stack and lock together, giving users the ability to safely gain needed
cribbing height in unlevel conditions. Developed with customer input, the new lighter weight and lower cost
ProStack product is designed for use with the types of equipment used in utility, tree care, concrete
construction, and crane and rigging markets.
“DICA’s ProStack Slot Lock Cribbing is a perfect fit for aerial devices, digger derricks, concrete pumpers, and
boom trucks,” said Kris Koberg, CEO. “The combination of variable height, interlocking stackability and
compatibility with SafetyTech Outrigger Pads gives operators the safety, stability, and versatility needed when
working in unlevel environments.”
The setup of a SafetyTech Base Pad and two ProStack Blocks has a 100,000 lb. working load limit and a max
allowable pressure of 500 psi. Slot Lock flanges interlock with a DICA SafetyTech® base pad and with each
subsequent block layer when positioned in alternating directions. Each layer increases cribbing height by five
inches, and the surface allows room for outrigger feet measuring up to 18”x18.”
Each ProStack Slot Lock block weighs less than 30 pounds, which minimizes operator fatigue and provides quick
setup and breakdown times. Molded grips make it easy for one person to carry and position blocks, even when
wearing gloves. TuffGrip® handles can be added as an option to facilitate carrying two blocks at once. DICA’s Hi-
Viz orange TuffGrip handles are waterproof and resistant to UV light, hydraulic fluids, and road chemicals.
Unlike most cribbing solutions commonly deployed in the field, ProStack’s engineered material is extremely
strong and impervious to weather and jobsite conditions. ProStack Cribbing is made from a combination of post-
consumer recycled material and additives to produce a strong, reliable, and environmentally friendly solution.
All ProStack cribbing products are warrantied for 25 years against rot, insect infestation, splitting, cracking or
DICA introduced ProStack Cribbing, the industry’s first engineered cribbing product, in 2017. ProStack Slot Lock
