Everything You Need to Know About Tire Cover Socks

Do you own or operate aerial lifts on a regular basis? If so, you’re most likely well aware of the damage they can cause to surfaces and floors. From scuff marks to dripping fluids, aerial lifts can cause some significant damage to your floors over time. Fortunately, floor protection materials, such as tire cover socks and drip diapers help eliminate this problem and keep your space looking fresh.

What are tire cover socks?

Tire cover socks, along with the traditional tire covers, provide additional protection against damage caused by aerial lifts. As most aerial lift operators know, these devices can cause significant damage to the underlying surfaces when and where they are parked. As a result, items such as tire covers and tire cover socks help protect floors from potential damage.

How do tire cover socks work?

Tire cover socks protect finished floors from damage like scuff marks caused by rubber tires. Simply install the tire cover socks over the rubber tires. Additionally, the leading tire cover socks are made from heavy-duty materials and are customizable to fit any tire size. 

How do tire cover socks differ from tire covers?

Tire covers work very similarly to tire cover socks. For example, tire covers are installed on rubber tires and protect floors against damage like scuffs. Tire covers work well because they are easy to put in place. Additionally, with tire covers, operators can also use the lift at the same time! Yes, tire covers continue to protect your floor while you use the lift.  

“To do, simply stretch on half of the cover over the top of each tire, then drive your machine so the tires turn halfway and stretch the remaining half of the cover over the rest of the tire.”

For industries and companies that require clean rooms, then by installing tire covers on the tires of your aerial lifts, you’ll save yourself time and money by preventing any damage from your tires marking surfaces, such as warehouse floors. It is also important to note that even no-scuff tires don’t eliminate all marks, so it’s important to use these covers for full protection.

What are other ways to protect your floors?

In addition to potential damage like scuffs, aerial devices also drip fluids, such as hydraulic fluid and oil. Each job and use may not cause much damage, but over time, if the lift is used in the same place, the fluids and tire marks build up. Additionally, the fluids present potential hazards from slipping as well. Fortunately, yes, things like drip diapers also help protect your floors.

For example, drip diapers are heavy-duty sheets that absorb any and all drips from underneath your aerial lift. Fortunately, you and your team can follow the same installation process for any type of drip diapers. Whether you’ve got a newly installed surface, operate your machine in a food processing plant or want to ensure you avoid slip hazards, drip diapers are the perfect, no-fuss solution.
