SAFETY CLASSIFICATION GUARANTEES THE BEST LEVEL OF PROTECTION
HAIX’s professional footwear fulfils all basic safety requirements (category SB) as well as meeting additional norms (S1, S1P to S3) in some cases. Boots and shoes are manufactured in accordance with various safety norms depending on the area of intended use by bodies such as the fire brigade, police and rescue services.
Category S1P safety boots, for example, are slip resistant as well as featuring a toe cap. They are also antistatic, resistant to oil and petrol, have a puncture-resistant sole and guarantee an energy rebound effect in the heel area. In the case of fire brigade boots, heat insulation also plays an important role in terms of safety. For this reason, product descriptions always state the performance of a boot’s outsole when it comes into direct contact with heat (HRO category).
HIGH COMFORT OF WEAR THROUGHOUT THE DAY
Safety category is not the only important aspect of professional workwear. If your work involves spending long periods of time on your feet, you require a safety boot or shoe that delivers a high level of comfort. All HAIX safety boots and low shoes have a sole which cushions your steps as you go and thus reduces any strain on the joints and back. This enables you to save energy whilst on duty and means that you will not become tired quickly.
Many models feature an integrated layer of PU foam which extends across the whole of the area of the sole. This material weighs very little and helps to create a product which is extremely light. It also cushions and absorbs your own weight, thus ensuring that you will need less energy as you walk along. In addition, special anatomical inlays provide a perfect fit.
A FIRM FOOTHOLD ON ANY TERRAIN
HAIX safety boots and shoes offer a secure grip on any surface and are equally able to cope with steep slopes, wet roads or oil-covered floors in workshops. Outsoles are manufactured in a special abrasion-resistant rubber compound with a bold tread. This makes them high slip resistant and enables you to achieve a safe footing at all times. Some models include a special heel cup to offer extra stability.
Professional footwear which offers both safety and comfort
HAIX safety boots and shoes have been specially designed to meet a wide range of workplace requirements. Innovative engineering and extensive laboratory tests both help to develop footwear which precisely meets your needs. The particular characteristic of HAIX boots and shoes is that they combine function, safety and comfort. Regardless of your occupational field, we can offer the right footwear.
Alongside safety, comfort of wear also has an important part to play. GORE-TEX® or CROSSTECH® membranes contained within the inner lining of the boots or shoes ensure that you feet will not sweat excessively. This multi-ply membrane is highly breathable. This means that sweat is evaporated and expelled to ensure that your feet remain comfortably dry.
HAIX’s patented Arch Support System has been integrated into many models. This allows the shoe or boot to adjust to the anatomical form of your feet, thus supporting the joints and reducing pressure on the whole of the muscle system.
A toe cap manufactured in glass fibre reinforced plastic or steel fulfils a highly efficient function. Its anatomical form and extra breadth offers maximum protection against any falling objects. This means that you will enjoy maximum comfort, even after long periods of wear.
HAIX safety footwear is available in all men’s and women’s sizes and ranges in format from low shoes to calf-high boots.
