Ice Cleats for Seniors and Elderly
Ice Cleats for Security Guards and Protective Services Banner

Security Guard Companies are looking for ice cleats that

  • are effective in all slippery winter conditions;
  • can be worn indoors without damaging floors or being a slip and fall hazard;
  • are safe on metal or cement steps; and
  • can be safely worn while driving.
Read this page to discover why Winter Walking Ice Cleats with Transitional Traction fill all these requirements and more.

Why Traditional Ice Cleats are Impractical for Security Guards

Ordinary ice cleats require that Security Guards remove their ice cleats every time they transition in and out of doors. That's because of
  • studded ice cleats will damage interior floors; and
  • studded ice cleats, and especially spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils, are extremely slippery on smooth interior floors.

Depending on the job site, removing and putting ice cleats back on every time a Security Guard goes in and out of a building is inconvenient and inefficient. Security Guards often won't wear their ice cleats regardless of company safety policies because they're

  • under pressure to make their rounds in a prescribed period of time; and
  • most often not being observed.
Traditional ice cleats can be extremely slippery on metal steps and ladders. Some job sites, and especially Mall Security Guards, require frequently transitioning in and out of vehicles. Again, ordinary ice cleats must be removed before driving because
  • aggressive spikes can penetrate the rubber cover on foot controls and could impede rapid transition between the pedals in an emergency;
  • spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils can be slippery depending upon the pedal design and material;
  • Ice cleat straps can impede movement between pedals.

Recommended Ice Cleats for Security Guards and Protective Services

All the recommended ice cleats with studs have Transitional Traction. Aggressive 1mm tungsten carbide studs minimally protrude just beyond the aggressive self-cleaning tread. Therefore, both the tread and the studs make contact with the surface.

You get excellent traction on ice, snow, deep snow, slush, and black ice. You can also safely walk on most indoor floors without damaging them of risking a slip and fall.

Gritted ice cleats are for special situations where Non-Sparking and non-conductivity are crucial. Gritted ice cleats are far less effective than studded ice cleats. Gritted ice cleats become far less effective as temperatures drop and ice becomes denser than at warmer temperatures.

Full-Sole Ice Cleats

Always opt for full-sole ice cleats whenever possible. Having well-distributed aggressive tungsten carbide studs across the entire bottom of your shoe or boot

  • provides far better traction especially on uneven ice; and
  • allow you to walk naturally because of spikes at the base of the heel and at the front.

Heel-Only Ice Cleats

I always recommend full-sole ice cleats whenever Company Policy doesn't prohibit their use while driving. It's critical that every stud is effective on both full-sole and heel-only ice cleats.

GRIPS-LITE and Non-Sparking and Non-Conductive because they use aluminum oxide bands to generated traction. While GRIPS-LITE are safe to wear on indoor surfaces and while driving, they should only we used where Non-Sparking and non-conductivity are critical issues. That's because gritted ice cleats only reduce slips and falls on ice by 50%.

Caveats About Ice Cleats and Driving

It's the manufacturer's opinion that the ice cleats appearing on this page are safe to wear while driving. I have experience with the recommended ice cleats and agree that, in my opinion, these ice cleats are safe to wear while driving. But your Safety Manager must make that call.

Some Security Services Companies feel that the risk of wearing any Full-Sole shoe attachment outweighs the risk of personal injury to the driver. Companies that restrict full-sole ice cleats use heel-only ice cleats. You'll find both full-sole and heel-only ice cleats below. But common sense tells you that heel-only ice cleats provide far less protection from injuries on the ice than full-sole ice cleats. However, heel-only ice cleats afford far better protection from falls than any rubber or leather sole footwear regardless of the tread material or design.

Crucial Ice Cleats Sizing Tips

  1. You can go by the shoe sizes. However, the actual size of the shoe or boot can vary significantly for the same foot size. So option two below is a better way to select the correct size.
  2. Measure the length of your shoe or boot. Measure the bottom from the tip of the sole to the base of the heel. Measure on "the flat", don't wrap around. We want the length. Then find the size on the sizing chart with the Footwear Length Range that spans the length of your footwear. Measure carefully. Measure twice. Our goal is to get you the right size on the first try to make you as safe as possible as soon as possible.
Ice cleats sizes are unisex and fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your ice cleats on as soon as you receive them for two reasons.
  1. You want to be ready for the bad weather. Don't wait until the ice is on the ground to find out you need a size exchange.
  2. I can't do free size exchanges for ice cleats that have been used because I can't resell them.

What should I do if the length of my shoe or boot is extremely close to the breakpoint of a size range? Should I choose the next larger size? For example, assume the length of your boot or shoe is just under 12½". You look at the specific size chart for ice cleats you're buying. Assume for this example the Medium has size range of 11½" to < 12½" and a Large is 12½" to < 13". For regular shoes and work shoes, stick with the smaller of the two sizes your considering. If you're planning to use your ice cleats on heavier winter boots, choose the bigger size.

I'm planning to use the ice cleats on both my shoes and boots. But they're different lengths. What should I do?

If the difference in length is small, order the size for the larger boots. Purchase the optional Ankle Strap to use when you use the ice cleats on your shoes. The ankle strap will make sure they stay on. If the difference in length is significant, you may need two sizes of ice cleats. That's because you want the ice cleats to be snug, so they not only stay on your footwear but also stay aligned.

I have a large company. There's no way I can measure everyone's footwear.

I understand. Go by shoe sizes. I'll be happy to exchange sizes later on. However, please make sure you haven't used the ice cleats outdoors.

Is the measuring technique 100% accurate?

Nope. It's accurate most of the time. Measuring is far superior to go by shoe size. 
Ice Cleat Ankle Straps
Winter Walking Ice Cleats fit securely on most shoes and boots. Most people do not need or use the Ankle Strap. However, Ankle Straps add an additional level of comfort, knowing your ice cleats will stay on your footwear. It's more critical to consider Ankle Straps if you
