What are Forklift Sleeves?
Have you ever stopped to think about all of the small inventions we use daily that make such a big impact on the way the world functions, such as a nail or a wheel? There are tons of products that are superbly simple in design, yet beneficial in so many ways — and forklift sleeves are one of them!
Forklift sleeves (sometimes called ‘covers’ or ‘socks’) are a form of protection for the forks of a lift truck, mainly used to eliminate steel to product contact. The sleeves are typically made out of a heavy-duty nylon webbing or a temperature-resistant rubber that easily slip on over the forks and have some sort of lock-in mechanism or Velcro piece at the heel.
The Benefits of using Forklift Sleeves:
- Protects loads, finished products, and forks from scratches and marks (eliminating product damage)
- Can be custom made to fit exact dimensions of your forklift
- Economical and long lasting
- Easy to slip on and off
- Usually produced in orange or yellow increasing visual safety
