More About Knee Pads
Why Knee Pads/Knee Protection are Necessary for Roofing Professionals
Leaning on a varyingly steep roof grade all day laying shingles places a lot of your body weight and stress of motion on your knees as you move from side-to-side and even remain stationary. This overexertion can result in injuries such as sprains/strains, and may even lead to long-term health issues such as arthritis.
Knee Pads, and even kneeling pads, provide a layer of cushion between the knees and the roof, with the former being comprised of durable materials such as leather, rubber, and plastic. Use of PPE such as knee pads help prevent on-site job injuries and ensure that the job gets done safely and efficiently.
Different Types of Knee Pads AvailableWhen it comes time to pick which knee protection to choose, it is important to know the benefits of each model and type before making a selection.
- Leather: Smooth, rugged leather exterior with a felt-lined interior and sculpted kneecap cup.
- Rubber: Durable, hard rubber design with sculpted kneecap; many models also come with a grooved bottom design for extra grip.
- Plastic: Kneepads are constructed of durable poly typically encased in high-density rubber padding; caps may perform additional functions such as swivel or be gel-filled for added maneuverability and protection, respectively.
