Clamp pads are an integral part of warehouse, distribution and material handling processes. These forklift attachments are made of steel or aluminum and coated with a rib-designed rubber that allows for easier handling of rolls, barrels, boxes and much more.

The HawkPad, by Sioux Rubber & Urethane, is changing the way companies in the paper-based honeycomb manufacturing industry do business. These companies manufacture honeycomb cardboard. This material is used for protective packaging of appliances, glass and furniture and even for structural applications like household doors and temporary building structures.
Clamp pads and forklift fork covers are the absolute best tool for tough applications. These pads provide the extra grip and decrease damage when moving material. If you use them in your warehouse, you won’t move anything without them. But when these pads get worn out, caring for them can be a headache. First, they’re expensive to replace and your forklift is left sitting while the part ships. Worse-case scenario is when the new pads don’t fit and you have to send them back and start the process all over again. That’s lost productivity, in time and money, you can’t get back.
A good clamp pad is something you depend on every time you move a barrel, roll, flat box, pallet – basically anything and everything you store in your warehouse. If your clamp pads are worn out, you risk damaging those materials and can put production behind schedule waiting for a new pair. Save yourself the hassle, and money, by replacing those worn pads with Sioux Rubber’s Clamp Pads. Our replacement pads reduce material damage, lost productivity and cost less than a brand new set.
Steel may be one of the strongest metals used in heavy duty equipment, but it can only take so much impact, abrasion, and corrosion before it fails. And that’s why we created our bolted liner product line, arguably one of the most heavy-duty lining systems on the market today.
What you may already know is that Abrasiplate™ is a rubber-faced plate that protects metal surfaces from the abuse of abrasion, corrosion, friction, and impact. You may also know that studies have shown protected metals can last up to 10 times longer than unprotected metals.
Some things are just meant to go together. Rubber and urethane, for one. Two things that never go together, though? Bare metal forklift clamps and inventory.
Sioux Rubber & Urethane recently partnered with one of the largest paper-based honeycomb manufacturers in the U.S. to pit the HawkPad against one of the toughest die-cutting environments in the industry.
