Plastic cribbing blocks


Our plastic cribbing blocks create robust and resilient support surfaces and can compensate for differences in level thanks to their different dimensions. In addition, they have several practical advantages over their wooden counterparts. With plastic trestles, pests do not stand a chance and even rot caused by moisture does not affect them.

Classic areas of application

Due to their enormous load-bearing capacity, plastic cribbing blocks can be used to secure vehicles and machines in the workshop, for example, so that service work and repairs can be carried out easily. After being lifted with a jack, the support blocks are placed under the equipment to create a secure footing. This reduces the risk posed by the scarce support points when securing with a jack alone. The enormous stability of the cribbing blocks makes them an indispensable tool for setting up vehicles and machines.

In addition, the following types of use come into question:

  • resilient support for the erection of scaffolding
  • supports for repair work on forklifts and cars
  • alignment of office and construction containers without strip foundation
  • base for storage of building materials and goods on pallets
  • spacers and anti-skid devices for securing loads
  • substructure for stabilizing booms of trucks with loading crane
  • vibration dampers for machine tools
  • anti-tipper for single-axle sales trailers

This enumeration of the use of the support trestles made of plastic is not exhaustive. The basic properties and load-bearing capacity make them very universal. The possibilities of use do not stop at the above variants, because also a misuse comes into question. Due to the size plate, they can be used as a temporary stair tread to a carcass. Even in the private house and garden they perform well. If you do not want their wooden plunge pool of the garden sauna to weather from the bottom, put plastic trestles under it. They prevent moisture from the ground or surface water from entering the feet of the stand.




High load capacity

We have commissioned an independent institute with the application-related testing of the maximum load capacity. After all, as a manufacturer, we want you to be able to rely on the load capacity specifications when you purchase our products. The result of these tests was confirmation that our models can withstand a point load of up to 25 tons. At the same time, a trestle itself is quite light. Our smaller cribbing blocks weigh less than six kilograms and have an integrated loop with a carrying handle for convenient handling.


Sizes of the cribbing blocks

LuxTek cribbing blocks can be ordered in various standard sizes. If these dimensions are not sufficient for the types of use you plan, we offer custom manufacturing. Individual dimensions are possible in height as well as in length and width. If you want to know the price of the custom-made products, you can ask for a concrete estimate by phone, fax or mail.


Individual customization

If you want your plastic blocks to be quickly recognizable at any time, talk to us about customization. This is possible in a very simple way. Our employees can either mill in simple logos or a name. This is possible for the support blocks as well as for our support pads and container plates. It doesn’t matter whether you want to buy standard dimensions or order custom-made products.


Cribbing blocks: Features

In addition to the enormous load capacity, resistance to heat and frost plays an important role. Unlike wooden cribbing blocks, water cannot enter the plastic blocks. This means that the trestles can be used in winter without further ado. Resistance to oils and other chemicals also pays off during use. The surfaces of the plastic trestles are also roughened. This is a plus point in terms of safety.


Advantages of our cribbing blocks

When used in industry, it is important that the cribbing blocks can be easily cleaned. That is why numerous materials are not shortlisted there. Our trestles made of deep black or black-colored plastic, on the other hand, are a very good solution because they are easy to clean. Please keep in mind that dirt accumulation is a safety risk in all applications. By simply cleaning the support blocks, you can efficiently prevent machinery, scaffolding and vehicles from slipping, for example. The support trestles also perform well in terms of occupational health and safety. They help to enable safe working on vehicles and machines.


Easy transport and simple assembly

Assembly work is not required when using the plastic cribbing blocks. To create load-bearing surfaces with them, they simply need to be placed on a flat surface. Incidentally, the trestles also serve to protect the floor, as they distribute point loads over a larger area. For transportation, you can stack the trestles on a pallet and lash them down. Larger mesh boxes or wooden boxes are also suitable as transport aids.
