Matrax Welded Outrigger Pads
At Matrax, we offer outrigger pads of all shapes & sizes. Our composite outrigger pads offer the superior layer of support you need to complete your job on time and within a budget, instead of worrying about stabilization issues. Matrax’s welded composite outrigger pads are designed to be not only lighter than solid plastic or timber outrigger pads, but they are also about 50% less expensive. This longer lasting alternative is produced in an ISO 9001 certified facility, guaranteeing the highest degree of quality available.
Matrax engineered composite pads have a much greater strength to weight ratio than other plastic pads on the market. This is achieved by utilizing a series of vertical ribs and an exterior skin that are injection molded from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) as one part. Two of these mirror image parts are then joined together by means of a proprietary welding process to create a pad. The use of these internal shapes and the part geometry lowers the overall density of the pad without compromising its strength. Every Matrax composite outrigger mat is fabricated in an ISO 9001 certified facility, guaranteeing the highest degree of quality consistently.
Matrax relied on real world job site experience when it developed the composite outrigger pad and kept the end user in mind throughout the process. The result is a pad with a hermetically sealed core and rot-proof material that will not gain weight over the life of the pad. Each pad is finished with two 5/8” diameter solid braided polypropylene handles for easy lifting.
- Pressure-tight, leak-proof welded design
- Reliable load distribution
- 50% lighter than a comparable plastic outrigger pad
- Handles for lifting
- Molded textured slip-resistant surface
- Lifetime manufacturer’s warranty
Matrax engineered composite outrigger pads offer a lightweight design for ease of handling, making them great outrigger pads for a bucket truck, but rigid enough to efficiently spread loads over their entire surface, making them perfect for crane stabilizer pads. They are very effective when used properly but not indestructible.
Ground conditions can vary considerably from location to location and exhibit variable soil bearing pressures. These conditions will have an impact on the performance of the outrigger pads. As a rule of measure, the maximum allowable deflection of the outrigger pads should not exceed three (3) inches.
Please refer to the Outrigger Pad User Guide for general guidance on the proper use of our composite outrigger mats. Outrigger pads do not guarantee the safety of any operation and they should be used in conjunction with the equipment manufacturer recommendations, general safety guidelines, and common sense.
