Why Choose Turtle Plastics’ Cribbing Blocks for Material Handling Equipment Maintenance

 As maintenance managers in the material handling industry, your priority is not just keeping operations running smoothly but ensuring the safety of your workers and the durability of your equipment. When it comes to stabilizing and elevating machinery during service or emergencies, the choice between wood and plastic cribbing blocks can significantly impact both safety and efficiency. 

At Turtle Plastics, we understand the challenges you face and offer a superior alternative to traditional wood cribbing blocks when stabilizing equipment for repairs, maintenance and even transportation of that equipment. We have worked closely with industrial, manufacturing and transportation safety professionals to design Dura Crib® and Dura Stat® brand of stabilization products. Our engineered plastic cribbing blocks, chocks, ramps and pads are revolutionizing the industry by providing a safer, more sustainable, and cost-efficient solution for equipment maintenance cribbing over the traditional use of wood. Leading forklift kit manufacturers already have revised their protocols to include the Turtle Plastics forklift block kits for their technicians.


Safety First 

Wood cribbing blocks, while commonly used in the maintenance environment, pose several safety risks. Over time, wood can splinter, crack, or degrade, compromising the stability of the equipment it supports. This degradation increases the likelihood of accidents, potentially causing serious injuries to your workers and damage to your machinery. 


In contrast, Turtle Plastics cribbing blocks for material handling are engineered to withstand a wide range of loads without compromising safety. Made from durable recycled plastic, our products are resistant to splintering, cracking, and decay from chemicals such as most common industrial fluids or biohazard fluids.  We have created safety industrial blocking kits, that take the guess work out of cribbing blocks in this industry. Each forklift blocking kit comes with solid plastic mast support blocks that have been tested to the vertical load of 3,880 lbs. In addition, each kit has smaller cribbing blocks, wheel chocks, stockpicker rizer ramp, cribbing clamps and a carry bag.  Most service technicians can carry the kit in their service trucks and these kits comply with you onsite customers “no wood” policies.

Long-Term Cost Efficiency 

While wood cribbing blocks may seem like a cost-effective option initially, they often come with hidden expenses in the form of maintenance, replacement, and potential liabilities from accidents. Over time, these costs can add up, impacting your bottom line and overall profitability.
