The Cribbing and Matting Company, one of industry’s leading suppliers of cribbing and matting products in the South East Asia region, including Australia and New Zealand, has added the proven Dura Crib Prime Cribbing Blocks to its comprehensive range of jacking blocks and stabilising tools.
The lightweight, splinter-free, non-absorbent and environmentally sustainable Dura Crib Prime Cribbing Blocks are designed to be used whenever a person is working on or near a structure or work piece being stabilised in a wide range of industries, including mining, materials handling, building, construction and manufacturing.
Engineered for maximum durability and tested under the guidance of Australian Standards to ensure optimum safety and risk management, the Dura Crib Prime Jacking and Cribbing Block is an excellent alternative to timber dunnage and blocks used in jacking and stabilising of heavy loads.
Made from recycled plastic, the Dura Crib Prime Cribbing is not only far safer than timber, as it won’t splinter or rot, it is also great for the environment.
The pyramid profiles on the two surfaces of the Dura Crib Prime Crib provide a secure base and top that can interlock at any angle, with the three side notches interlocking for ultra-secure stacking performance.
The positive interlocking of the cribbing, by gravity and friction forces, produces excellent stability and load bearing capacity.
The Dura Crib Prime Cribbing Block is certified load rated with a working load limit (WLL) of 60.8kg/cm2, with a maximum working load capacity 58,800kg.
Exceptional for four point and nine point cribbing stacks, the cribbing offers stack load capacities of between 58,800kg and 132,000kg.
The high performance Dura Crib range was developed to replace older, weaker wood cribbing systems with constant cracking and varying and unpredictable load-bearing capabilities.
Not only is wood impossible to authenticate for Working Load Limit, wooden blocks require ongoing replacement involving extensive handling, consumption and disposal of a finite resource.
In addition to wastage of scarce hardwoods, there are disposal problems with tons of wooden cribbing that soaks up oil, chemicals and hazardous waste products that abound on maintenance, fabrication and worksites.
Such hazardous substances contained in waste wood cannot be dumped into landfill, where they can find their way into the water tables of rural and urban communities.”
The use of timber blocks being used for jacking is a thing of the past, and is declining in many industries throughout Australasia and South-East Asia.
Available in hi-visibility yellow or standard black, the cribbing is manufactured from 100% recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE) construction for durability and tested under the guidance of AS1170.0.2002 and AS2498.3.1998.
Light weight and resistant to fuels, oils and most common industrial solvents and chemicals, the cribbing is backed by a 50-year warranty against splitting, rot, fluid absorption, termites and mould.
Dura Crib systems have been extensively proven under some of the world’s toughest safety regimes in the United States of America.
A major advantage of Dura Crib is that it is a complete system of integrated products that can be combined to provide comprehensive solutions across a wide range of industries.
Dura Crib offers complete solutions and continuity of supply for particular applications, rather than piecemeal product ranges and erratic availability.
Offering outstanding strength and stability, Dura Crib is suitable for both active cribbing, where a person is working on, underneath or near the supported load, and for passive cribbing, where cribbing is used to keep the load off the ground, allowing forklift access for example.
Dura Crib provides an engineered and easily handled system and is the safest and fastest way to stabilise loads, including machinery and vehicles ranging from cars to heavy trucks.
