Knee pads for decorating – Redbacks
Anyone resting knees against ladder rungs, kneeling on cold tiled floors or wooden floors, you need to take precautions.
You will get old one day, and I know plenty of people who haven’t protected their knees, and wish they had.
Knee pads are for wimps!
I reckon if I ask for “bad knee” stories, a few fingers will start typing!
Take steps to make sure that it isn’t your knees creaking and hurting in later life. You might think it doesn’t matter, scurrying around on your knees on site, but think about what it’s like, kneeling awkwardly on the odd nail or random piece of excruciating grit. Wimp or no wimp, it hurts for a bit, doesn’t it!
I, like many, have started out with the best of intentions, and tried, and then thrown away kneepads that compress, fall out, don’t work. I know I’m not the only tradesman who has had a twinge, and gone round a worksite looking for foam, polystyrene, bits of carpet, anything to reduce the stress on your knees.
Well, finally there looks like an enduring knee pad solution – Redbacks are built!
The Redbacks are not light, so may pull loose-fitting overalls down and miss your knees! A belt for your trousers?
If your overalls don’t fit right, ie your trouser knees and your own knees don’t line up very well, insert pads of any variety won’t work as well as they could.
Tilers’ opinions seem to be favourable on the Redback. More than anyone, they should know.
