Our components are produced from a proprietary, 100% recycled plastic blend for added durability.
Our construction process creates a far safer, stronger and longer lasting method than the wood that is normally used to assist with forklift maintenance. (See chart below for the attributes of plastic versus wood).
Resistant to gas, oil, chemicals, even blood.
50 year warranty against splitting, rotting, absorption, termites and mold
Lightweight and splinter free
Lumber can have hidden knots, splits and insects which can make it unreliable under stress
Standard color is black; also available in Hi-Vis yellow
Standard sizes for repeatable support
PLASTIC –VS– WOOD
Cribbing – Technical Specs
Active versus Static Cribbing Active cribbing is used when a person is working near the cribbing. Static (or passive) cribbing is used to keep material off the ground to allow a forklift to operate.
Design Strength Crossgrain bearing design strength for traditional wood cribbing varies by wood species and quality (evenness of grain, presence of knots, etc.) from 200 PSI to 1000PSI. Plastic cribbing can sustain up to 700-1200 PSI creating a safer, longer-lasting and more durable cribbing base.
