LIKE WALKING ON CLOUDS OVER THE CONSTRUCTION SITE

OUR XXSG’s WITH SUPER DAMPING

Physical exertion is part of the daily routine of construction workers, as are muddy clay floors, slippery ladder rungs and uneven surfaces of rubble, gravel and boulders. Anyone who walks for many hours on hard or frequently changing surfaces needs comfortable and suitable footwear. That’s where our new XXSG’s come into play: the layer of Infinergy® from BASF in the sole core provides optimal cushioning and relieves strain on tendons and joints. Additional plus: The coarse tread ensures a reliable grip when walking and standing in all weather conditions. Resistant and water-repellent upper materials protect against moisture, lime and splashing cement. Any rough stones and nails lying around are averted by the repelled by the penetration protection and toe cap.

STEEL VS. SYNTHETIC TOE CAP

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Steel caps are stronger than caps made of other materials and are unbreakable – even under high loads. They have a slimmer appearance than synthetic caps, for example. synthetic toe caps are about one third lighter than steel caps and thus reduce the overall weight. They are particularly suitable for areas in which metal is not allowed. ELTEN always uses glass fibre for its metal-free caps.

NO TIRED FEET

WELLMAXX

Construction workers in particular are on their feet for several hours every day. They move around a lot on hard floors, stand for long periods of time, or work in a squatting position. For the feet, this means a heavy load. We prevent this problem with our WELLMAXX series! The innovative Infinergy® cushioning material in the sole core, from BASF, noticeably relieves the feet.

PROTECTED AGAINST ABRASION

PU SCUFF CAP

The toes of the safety shoes are often affected by premature wear under the rough working conditions on the construction site. During activities that are performed while kneeling or squatting in particular, the material in this area suffers a great deal. All XXSG models have a PU scuff cap, which is designed to protect against just such wear.

A NOTE ABOUT SOCKS

The right safety footwear for the construction industry always needs the right socks! These should definitely fit well and fit tightly on the foot without constricting.

It is also important to pay attention to the material of the socks: a skin-friendly and breathable textile material that always keeps the feet dry is recommended. For the best wearing comfort, we offer our Perfect Fit Socks, which guarantee an optimal fit.

PENETRATION PROTECTION

In protection class S3, we offer models with both a metal-free and a steel midsole. Due to the high demands on penetration protection in the construction industry, we recommend the use of footwear with the more robust steel variant as opposed to the slightly more flexible metal-free midsole.
