Some building trades require one to work on their hands and knees to get the job done. Tile setters, electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers, and other construction trades often require one to spend countless hours kneeling on hard surfaces.
Over time—and if ignored too long—excessive kneeling can result in extreme pain, discomfort, and even injury. Knee guards provide a layer of cushion when kneeling and help prevent the long-term effects of working on one's knees.
These include prepatellar bursitis (aka, 'carpenter's knee'), patellar tendonitis (aka, 'jumper's knee'), osteoarthritis, sprained ligaments, cartilage tears, and other injuries resulting from excessive kneeling.
By choosing a quality pair of knee pads, you'll be able to work more comfortably and recover from existing injuries quicker while adding a long-term layer of injury prevention. It is imperative for those who work on their knees to wear a quality pair of knee guards. Your knees will thank you.
In the following, we introduce a few of the knee protection models offered by LIFT Safety and highlight some of the key benefits of each.
LIFT Safety's knee pad line uses innovative materials to maximize comfort, stability, and protection. Whether it's the Apex Gel with internal gel inserts that conform to the patella or the Pivotal Hard Shell with EVA padding and polypropylene kneecap, LIFT has seven (7) purpose-built knee protection models to choose from for the many varied work environments.
The Apex Gel is LIFT's flagship knee guard that uses an internal gel insert that molds to the patella and kneecap for a more custom fit. The adjustable two-strap design resists slippage and features a removable hinged upper support strap to help prevent binding. Available in Standard, Hardshell, and Non-Marring versions.
The Pivotal features formed EVA padding and either a flat polypropylene (PP) or thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) kneecap to keep your knees protected and stable. Ballistic nylon construction resists abrasions and increases durability. Available in Hardshell and Non-Marring versions.
The Pivotal 2 uses formed EVA padding and a textured TPR kneecap to keep your knees comfortably protected while maximizing traction and stability on most surfaces. Reduce knee fatigue and joint discomfort when kneeling with the Pivotal 2 Knee Pad from LIFT Safety.
The Factor is a hard-shell knee pad featuring polyurethane (PU) foam padding for added protection and comfort across the knee. The ballistic nylon construction resists abrasion for increased durability, and quick-release buckle fasteners mean easy application or removal.
