Non-marking forklift tyres are made by combining synthetic rubber with some white silica gel or resin. The end result is forklift tyres that are white/grey in appearance and leave no black marks on floors during operations.
You are probably wondering what are the benefits of these tyres, let’s look at this.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
One of the main benefits that come with non-marking forklift tyres is their ability to offer much lower rolling resistance. Normally this would mean less energy loss as the tyre rolls ensuring less effort is used for that same amount of work.

The improved fuel efficiency then results in lower fuel consumption which has both environmental and cost reduction benefits.
They also have the advantage of offering good traction which is quite advantageous when you are operating in an environment that is a threat to stability.
Better traction in tyres is important for safety as it makes it easy to control and stabilize the forklift.
Cleaner Working Environment
Non-marking tyres lack the soot that is generally added during the manufacture of tyres that leave them with some desirable attributes.
One of these attributes is the inability to leave marks on the warehouse floor during operation. It gives them an edge in warehouses where food or medicine is handled and hygiene is a major requirement.
Therefore, there is no reason for not considering non-marking tyres. They are perfect if you want a cleaner working environment and better fuel efficiency.
