Cribbing Plates / Outrigger Pads

To permit maximum lifting capacity and improve safety, cribbing plates or outrigger pads are used to provide support to terrain and mobile crane outriggers. When cribbing plates are used, the high pressures generated by cranes are distributed over a larger area, reducing the risk of a failure that could lead to a crane accident.

Our engineered plastic cribbing plates and outrigger pads offer lightweight, strong, and solid support for your crane. Unlike other materials, Timcolite™ plates can be easily handled and positioned by one person. Our plates don’t warp like wood or corrode like steel. They have no pilferage value, and with Timco’s lifetime replacement guarantee, we’re confident they won’t break.

In addition to our standard Timcolite™ cribbing plates, Timco now offers "Gripping Plates" - outrigger pads made of Timcogrip™. Timcogrip is a molecularly bonded two-layered material made of thermoplastic elastomer (rubber) on one side and UHMW-PE on the other. This Timco exclusive product offers wear and strength, while providing noise, vibration and super grip for steady crane operation. The rubber side grips and protects the street or any other surface on which your crane must rest. It is ideal for impact or scratch sensitive materials like a gymnasium floor.

For decades, Timco has been supplying crane, concrete and paving equipment users with high quality outrigger pads to keep their trucks steady. We stock a broad range of round and square pads. Custom sizes are also available up to 6 in. thick x 6 foot x 6 foot. Timco is ISO 9001:2008 certified, and has 40 years of plastics manufacturing and fabricating experience. You can expect top quality products and service when you order from Timco. To ensure the crane has proper support and can maintain a level condition, you must know how much weight is exerted on the outriggers. Timco’s sales staff is primarily composed of engineers ready to help you decide the size outrigger pads needed for your crane.
