The understanding of the importance of forklift safety in the workplace and to help minimise the risk of forklift loads slipping off tynes or becoming unstable during transport, the team developed GenieGrips® Mats, Caps, Cushions, Pads and Loading Mirrors. Knowing firsthand that using GenieGrips® provides a more efficient way to move forklift loads, minimising the risk of damage to product and injury to people. GenieGrips® products are designed for all industry sectors, forklifts wholesalers, aftermarket sales, and any other business involving materials handling. They offer unbeatable performance and exceptional longevity.

The GenieGrips range of rubber products for the forktynes are a simple solution to moving products with bare metal tynes. Their anti-slip properties provide sufficient grip to the surface thereby reducing accidents from loads slipping or falling off the tynes. This can result in costly rework, damage to product and people. The rubber protects finished product and packaging from being damaged, did you know that nearly $22 Billion is the estimated value of damaged product around the world.

GenieGrips® Mats have been specifically designed for exceptional grip and load stability. They are constructed from a carefully selected rubber compound that is incredibly strong, non-marking and oil resistant. GenieGrips® Mats can withstand temperatures of up to 110°C (230°F), with a patterned anti-slip surface that prevents sliding in the event of fast movement or a sudden stop.  Available in various lengths and widths, our forklift mats are suitable for all kinds of forklift tynes, big or small. They use a secure lock-in hook mechanism that makes for quick and easy installation and removal.

GenieGrips® Cushions function as a bumper that magnetize to the forklift tyne carriage.  They eliminate friction and absorb impact of goods that may occur during lifting, loading, and placing of loads. They are extremely easy to fit, with powerful magnets securing them on the forklift tyne upright. They offer excellent wear properties and vibration deadening without compromising the load capacity. GenieGrips® Cushions are specifically designed to be paired with our GenieGrips® Mats, GenieGrips® Caps or GenieGrips® Stik-It Pads to provide full forklift tyne protection.

GenieGrips® Loading Mirrors for forklifts eliminates critical blind spots in the driver’s vision and gives a clear view of the tynes, reducing accidents, injury, and damage to goods. Easily fitted to the mast, they are more reliable, easier to use and more robust than camera systems and gives a bigger, more intuitive field of view – like a car mirror system, only looking forwards. The GenieGrips® Loading Mirrors take the guess work out of truck loading enabling drivers to load trucks in one safe, efficient movement.  Drivers can see to align the load with the bed of the truck. GenieGrips® Loading Mirrors are a clever and cost-effective cost solution that saves time and money by improving productivity and safety. Unfortunately, in Australia 11% of workers killed were because of being hit by forklifts.

GenieGrips® Stik-It Pads are a slim, patterned anti-slip pad that protects your products and minimises the risk of slipping loads. They are a self-adhesive solution to protecting product reducing risk of injury or damage. Sitting within the footprint of the forklift tyne, their low profile allows them into the smallest of openings. GenieGrips® Stik-It Pads are extremely easy to fit, with high performance acrylic adhesive tape to secure them to the forks. GenieGrips® Stik-It Pads are available in one size and can be trimmed or joined together to accommodate different lengths and widths to fit most forktynes.

GenieGrips® are ideal for the safe, stable, and secure movement of metal and plastic products, oils, lubricants, IBCs, chemicals, and food goods; operating in cold or frozen environments, protecting finished products and manoeuvring loads on steep, ramped, narrow, undulating, or uneven surfaces.

GenieGrips® are ideal for frozen and refrigerated environments. The products maintain their integrity to temperatures of -40°C (-40°F). Clients in the food industry use GenieGrips® to move plastic palletised loads in cold storage because the patented rubber mats ensure that the frozen pallets do not shift or slip off the tynes during transport. Customers use GenieGrips® to stabilise loads and stop pallets shifting or slipping off tynes during the loading or unloading of loads in the extreme winter conditions.

GenieGrips® are ideal for preventing punctures, tearing or damage to merchandise during lifting and moving.  GenieGrips® Mats and Caps cover the tip of each tyne, providing a soft surface that will not puncture or tear products as they are lifted. GenieGrips® Stik-It Pads self-adhere within the footprint of the tynes to minimise the risk of slipping loads. GenieGrips® Cushions are a durable solution mounted to the upright of the fork providing cushioning protection from marring, denting and other forms of damage.  GenieGrips® Loading Mirrors eliminate driver critical blind spots and reduced vision while carrying loads improving productivity and safety.
