UK based outrigger mat supplier PLC Sales has launched a new mat option, offering two standard sizes within the ECO Lift Multi Mat System.
The first provides a 2.25 square metre support area, comprising of a set of mats of 1500 x 500 x 50mm thick, while the second comprises a set of 1800 x 600 x 50mm thick, and offering a 3.24 square metre support area.
The mats are arranged with three alongside each other, followed by two at 90 degrees to the bottom three as shown in the pictures below. Finally they are topped with a standard circular mat.
20 mats are provided in each standard set. Single sized outrigger pads of 1500 x 1500 x 100mm or 1800 x 1800 x 100mm are extremely heavy and often require secondary transport to handle.
Bill Green of PLC Sales said: “This new system is very simple, easy to handle, the heaviest item weighs 36 kgs, extremely cost effective and are not likely to be stolen as is often the case with steel or aluminium systems, which are then sold as scrap for cash.”
We will investigate these new mats in the October issue of Cranes & Access which will include a feature on outrigger mats and ground conditions.
