DENVER, Co. – AutoSock AS announced today that a variety of its patented textile tire covers is now available on forklifts.
“Most forklifts have smooth tires and easily lose traction when operating outside and on loading docks covered with ice and light snow,” said Chuck McGee, president of McGee Company, the US-based AutoSock distributor. “AutoSock for forklifts uses high-performance fibers and a specially designed surface pattern to maximize friction on snow and ice covered surfaces. By making the total contact area exposed to dry friction as large as possible, the ATD enhances traction and improves safety in loading dock and warehouse operations.”
The new tire covers are available in eight sizes and are easy to put and safe. The company claims the tire covers won’t damage loading dock or yard surfaces because of the soft material.
