Knurling on Globo Gym Pull up bars: What to do

First post here on CF, so hi all.

At our local school gym, the only pull up bars are the ones attached to the olympic lifting platforms, and they tear the hands up something fierce. I was wondering if anyone is in a similar situation and has any ideas about how to deal with terribly knurled pull up bars (besides man up and deal with it, which is my usual strategy). The funny thing is, there are other regular taped pull up bars in a different section of the building, away from the weight room, but its too far to go back and forth. Almost makes me look forward to Jason (almost).

Ask if you can throw some tape on them. It never hurts to ask, and I can't imagine they wouldn't let you tape them up.
