GRIPS-LITE Solve Problems Using Ice Cleats Around Oil and Gas

There are hazards associated with using conventional Ice Cleats with metal spikes or coils when used while drilling, refining, storing, and transporting oil and gas.
  • Metal spikes and coils are conductive and can cause sparks. BEWARE of manufacturers who advertise spark-resistant footwear. Spark-resistant shoe traction devices can still generate a spark under the right circumstances. GRIPS-LITE are non-sparking which means they will never generate a spark under any circumstances.
  • Ice cleats with metal spikes, especially wound metal coils, can be extremely slippery on smooth, non-ice and non-snow covered metal surfaces and ladders commonly found around oil and gas drilling rigs. GRIPS-LITE provide traction on exposed metal surfaces and do not affect the user's ability to climb ladders safely.
  • Many of the surfaces around drilling and fracking operations are covered with grease, oil, chemicals or water where conventional Ice Cleats are no help. GRIPS-LITE are extremely versatile and provide traction on all and any combination of these conditions.
Read the information on this page to find more about the unique, patented features that make GRIPS-LITE are your best choice for use around oil and gas operations.

Overview

GRIPS-LITE are
  • the longest-lasting and most dependable gritted footwear because they use exclusive, proven, and self-renewing aluminum-oxide bands;
  • Non-Sparking and not just Spark-Resistant like many competing gritted shoe traction devices.
    • Non-Sparking means they will not create a spark, period.
    • Spark-Resistant means that they could, under certain circumstances, create a spark.
    Ask anyone who works around natural gas, explosives, or grain elevators if that's a critical reason to choose GRIPS-LITE.
  • versatile giving you traction on most slippery surfaces; and
  • lastly, your best choice for any environment where Non-Sparking and Non-Conductivity is crucial.

Industry-Leading Benefits

Reduce Your Slips and Falls by 40 - 50%
You get superior traction to any rubber sole shoes and boots because aluminum-oxide bands work like sandpaper giving you thousands of traction points to grip slick surfaces.
Versatile Traction
You can
  • use one traction device for traction on a variety of slippery conditions found in the same work area;
  • use GRIPS-LITE indoors and outdoors; and
  • lastly, wear them when you drive or operate equipment.
You Won't Find More Durable Gritted Traction Devices
GRIPS-LITE are longer-lasting than competing gritted traction devices because they use thicker aluminum-oxide bands instead of just one single layer of grit. The bands renew themselves as they wear down and give you optimum traction over the life of the product.GRIPS-LITE Layered Grit Cross Section
GRIPS-LITE Are Ideal for the Oil & Gas Industry, Electric Utilities, and Around Explosives and Grain Elevators
Aluminum oxide is both Non-Sparking and Non-Conductive. GRIPS-LITE are far safer than competing Shoe Traction Devices that are only Spark-Resistant.
You Can Wear GRIPS-LITE Indoors and Outdoors
Therefore, you can put GRIPS-LITE on and keep them on. Employees constantly transitioning in and out of doors are more efficient. Your risk of injuries is reduced still further because people are more likely to use practical and convenient tractions devices.
  • Note: If the primary consideration is finding Ice Cleats you can safely wear on most indoor floors; spark suppression and non-connectivity are not issues; and the indoor floors are not made slippery by oil and grease, Winter Walking LOW-PRO or Winter Walking AltraGrips-Lite Low Profile Ice Cleats are a better choice. That's because LOW-PRO and AltraGrips-Lite provide far superior performance on ice, packed snow, deep snow, slush and black ice than Gritted Ice Cleats.
  • Employees are more productive if they don't have to constantly be putting on and taking off their shoe traction devices.
  • They're perfect for people who
They're Easier to Put on Than Competing Gritted Shoe Attachments
Here's why.
  • Straps are made from a rubber compound that stays flexible a low temperatures.
  • Patented Dual Pull Tab™ system allows you to get a better grip. It's great for anyone and especially for people with weakness in the hands or certain other medical disabilities.
  • Patented Dual Density™ Design makes them easier to stretch over your footwear.
  • They're uni-foot eliminates identifying right or left. Just grab one and put it on either shoe.
Straps Last Longer Than on Competing Products

That's because the straps

  • are made from a tough proprietary rubber compound that resists exposure to harsh chemicals; and
  • have no memory so they continue to fit snugly over your footwear.
Stay Securely on and Aligned on Your Footwear
That's because
  • Straps are strong and don't stretch out of shape.
  • The patented front bell-shaped design provides a wide surface area that snugly fits over the entire front of your shoes or boots.
  • The inside of the patented heel strap has a ridge that catches between the bottom of the heel and the upper heel. The ridge keeps the back from slipping off the back.
No stretch-over shoe traction device can guarantee they won't come off especially in deep wet snow. The optional Ankle Strap prevents this from happening.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between Non-Sparking and Spark-Resistant?
Non-Sparking means your Shoe Traction Device will never, under any conditions, cause a spark. Spark-Resistant means that, while your Shoe Traction Device will probably not generate a spark, a spark could happen under some circumstances.

If you're working around explosives, natural gas, in a munitions or fireworks factory, or grain elevator you want Non-Sparking. These people would define the difference between Non-Sparking and Spark-Resistant as no possibility of an explosion to a possible explosion.

The rough grit wore down and became smooth very quickly. Aren't GRIPS-LITE supposed to be durable?
GRIPS-LITE are supposed to lose that rough grit. You're specifically instructed to wear them and slide them on a sidewalk to remove that rough grit for safety purposes. The aluminum oxide strips create traction at a micro-particle level.
Do you recommend GRIPS-LITE for consumers for everyday traction on ice and snow?
No. I only recommend Gritted Ice Cleats in situations where you can't use Ice Cleats with aggressive Tungsten Carbide Studs because of sparking or conductivity requirements. Ice Cleats with tungsten carbide Studs are far more effective at reducing slips and falls. Furthermore, Gritted Ice Cleats become ineffective
  • in frigid temperatures when ice is more dense, and
  • on black ice.

If your primary concern is having Ice Cleats you can wear indoors, find out about Winter Walking LOW-PRO or Winter Walking AltraGrips-Lite Low Profile.

 

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.
    (OR)
  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 that fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your Ice Grips 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.
FAQs

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 Grips 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 Grips 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
