A 'box crib' or 'cribbing' are blocks used to build temporary wooden structures used to support heavy objects for construction, item relocation, pipe skids, vehicle rehab and equipment stabilization. It is commonly used to secure debris within collapsed buildings or even temporarily support for the buildings themselves. Our typical cribbing is cut out of oak and ash with sizes up to 12"x12".
Often equipment trailer decks take a beating from the cleats and tracks of heavy equipment. When the deck is worn out but the trailer frame is not it is a worthwhile investment to get the deck replaced. We cut a range of trailer plank sizes for small utility trailers, deck over trailers to low-boy out riggers. Our typical trailer material is cut out of oak and ash. We typically stock 2" or 8/4 planks up to 20' in length.
