New outrigger website
By Euan Youdale26 August 2014
Outriggerpads has launched a new website containing the entire product range including innovations such as the Hi-Viz high visibility spreader plates - made of the same UHMW polyethylene material but are coloured a fluorescent yellow.
Another product now included on the website is Hi-Pro pads which have an integrated non-marking rubber base. These are for use on high value floors in hotels, shopping centres, stately homes and similar venues preventing scuffs and scratches. The top surface is made of extremely durable ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), guaranteeing a long working life.
UHMW polyethylene does not splinter and has a very high resistance to vertical pressure. Coupled with the fact that it is waterproof, this significantly extends the products’ working lives compared to pads made of wood or metal. The material also adapts to the contours of uneven terrain.
Outriggerpads offers a range with vertical load bearing capacities from 5 to 350 tonnes. All products including descriptions, images and full specifications are now available on the new website, with additional features such as online ordering coming soon.
In 2013 the company – formerly known as PLC Sales – became part of IAPS Group, the UK’s largest full-service distributor of powered access platforms.
