The durability of ice cleats is a commonly asked question among safety professionals. Before purchasing ice cleats, it is essential to understand how long they are expected to last.
When someone asks about the lifespan of ice cleats, what they are really asking is how many pairs they will need to get through the winter season.
Ice cleats come in various types, some designed for recreational purposes such as walking the dog or shoveling the driveway, while others are specifically built for utility workers, letter carriers, and construction workers. Choosing the wrong type of ice cleat for a specific job task can result in significant differences in their longevity.
For example, if you are a utility worker who frequently deals with power outages caused by snow and ice storms, using ice cleats designed for recreational use from a retail store may require you to go through five to ten pairs in one winter season. On the other hand, if you are simply looking for ice cleats for walking the dog, investing in industrial-strength winter cleats may be the only pair you ever need to purchase.
Understanding the specific type of ice cleat you need is crucial in determining how long they will last. If your goal is to provide ice cleats for outdoor workers to prevent winter slip and fall incidents, it is advisable to avoid traditional consumer-driven retail stores.
