Composite Advantage's New Fiber Composite Crane Outrigger Pad Stronger, Lighter and More Cost Effective
DAYTON, Ohio - (June 1, 2009) - Composite Advantage LLC (CA) has introduced FiberRigg, a high-performance Fiber-Reinforced-Polymer (FRP) crane outrigger pad that outlasts wood pads and is more cost effective than UHMW plastic pads. Able to hold up to 125,000 pounds, FiberRigg is especially suited to any type of construction or building activity requiring the use of crane equipment.
