Why Poly Clad Fork Extensions

By Ken Welch on 2020-02-10 10:50:45 -

The main thought of Poly Clad Fork Extensions' development was to come up with a way to cover forks in sizes not covered by Poly Load Protectors. Combining fork extensions of the same length as the forks and poly coat the extensions. Advantages are optional use (vs permanently coating the fork), reducing downtime of the forklift (coating of fork takes about 3 weeks), and we can fit virtually any size fork.

Save Fork Wear

By Ken Welch on 2020-01-14 14:59:56 -

Recent discussion suggested Fork Sox™ brand fork covers might prevent forklift fork wear since they cover the bottom as well as the top & sides of forks. Not a serious proposal for the product, but an amusing thought on a slow day.

Fork Sox™ Application

By Ken Welch on 2019-12-31 11:15:35 -

Fork Sox™ brand forklift fork covers are excellent in handling painted products due to the non-metallic construction and they cover the top, bottom, and sides of the forks. 

Shaft Mounted Block Forks

By Ken Welch on 2019-12-23 09:48:42 -

Block forks are also available in a shaft mounting style. In an uneven environment, a custom elongated eye may allow the first forks being relieved of the load can "float" preventing damage to the product when the forks withdraw from the load.
