Snickers Knee Protection

Snickers Knee Protection

Protect your knees with Snickers knee protection

When it comes to knee protection, a number of factors are important. We explain how you can improve the fit of a knee pad, which knee pads are suitable for your work and how different features of the knee pad influence the level of protection. We also give a number of tips on the maintenance of the knee pads for optimal life.

The perfect fit for your own knees

A knee protector can be the best on the market, but without a good fit it will not protect your knees well enough. What makes your kneepads fit perfectly?

One of the most important aspects of a good fit, which is often overlooked, is the size of your work trousers. If the legs are too long or too short, the kneepad bags are not in the right place. When you then put a knee protector in the knee pocket, it will then sit too high or too low to protect the knees properly. So make sure you wear trousers in the right size.

Not only the size of the work trousers makes a difference, the cut of the trousers also plays a role. If you kneel in pants with straight legs, the fabric shifts from the knee to the side. If you add a knee pad here, it will also shift to the side. Therefore, look for work pants with Twisted Leg design. This type of trouser legs keeps the kneepad pocket in the right place when kneeling and thus provides better protection.

A good knee protector stays in place, whether you are kneeling or standing up again. Knee pieces that shift in the knee pocket can cause immediate and long term injuries if your knee "misses" the point with the most knee protection. The easiest way to increase the level of protection is to place the knee protector in the correct position. The KneeGuard system helps you with that, because you can fix the kneepad in different positions.

The design of the knee pad has a big influence on the fit. He should not only protect the kneecap, but also the area around it. A well-designed knee protector closes around the knee and prevents your knee from slipping off the protector.

Checklist when looking for a perfect fit:

If you notice that you always have to pull on a trouser leg or knee pocket to get the knee protector in the right place, this is an indication that the size of your pants is not quite right or the knee protector is in the wrong position.
  
When you fit a new pair of pants try not only standing, but kneeling as you would at work to see if the kneepad pockets are in the right place.
  
Are the kneepads of your choice suitable for the work pants you wear? Not all kneepads can be used in all work trousers and the mixing and matching of different brands can influence the level of protection.
Which knee protectors do you need for the work you do?

If you are a floor layer, everyone understands that you need a lot of knee protection. But what level of protection do you need if you are not a tier? How do you choose the best knee pads? When choosing a good knee protector there are two aspects of your work that are important; the number of times you kneel / stand up each day and the amount of time you spend consecutively on your knees.

Do you mainly work indoors and do you kneel incidentally? Then a light and flexible knee protector is suitable for you. This type of knee protection is not in the way while working, but gives some protection for the few times you kneel. A type 2, level 0 protector is then sufficient. In all the work where you kneel more, a knee protector with a higher level of protection is recommended.

When you sometimes kneel, but spend little time on your knees, a set of all-round kneepads is probably good enough. These give the protection you need (choose a type 2, level 1), but are not made for intensive use. Generally, these kneepads are also reasonably flexible, so you can work in comfort if you do not kneel.

If you often kneel and get up again during the day and also have long periods on your knees, you will need a set of heavy-duty knee pads. Protecting your knees against the impact is most important in this situation, because your knees get a lot of trouble if you come down on your knees time after time. Look for a knee protector with strong shock-absorbing qualities.

If you work on your knees for a long time, but do not get up often (such as floor layers), it is important that the knee protector stays in place for a long time and that it is very dampening. This type of knee protection has not been developed to withstand a regular impact, but to keep your knees protected if you are working on the floor.
