SPECIAL DANGERS

What else do we have up our sleeve? Everything required for foot protection! There are workplaces with something more – namely their very own risk. Because they are electrosensitive or thermally challenging. Or because the feet need to be protected against the dangers of cutting, twisting on awkward grounds and other special hazards. We have also developed the perfect shoes for this.

PROTECTION AGAINST ANKLE INJURIES

More than half of all foot injuries are sprains, dislocations or ligament injuries. With BIOMEX PROTECTION© you support the ankle in its natural movement and so protect it against these risks. Because BIOMEX PROTECTION© shoe systems are based on the anatomical movement axes of the ankles. With BIOMEX PROTECTION©, unlike other ankle protection systems, the shoe stays pleasantly light and flexible.

SENSITIVE WORK PLACES

Sensible_ArbeitsplaetzeIn metal-sensitive work places especially high demands are made to employees‘ workwear. For instance, for work at security gates or in the vicinity of induction loops of the kind used at airports or in industry completely metalfree safety shoes are a basic requirement. There safety shoes with metal components like steel caps or soles would interfere with sensitive metal detectors. A composite toe cap and plastic eyelets or fabric lace parts are used in place of the usual metal fittings.

CUT RESISTANCE

A cut-resistant interlining stops materials with sharp edges from reaching the foot. The material consists of the following traits: shape-retaining, high tear-resistance and large flexibility. The result is cut-resistance and high-protective effects against mechanical risks.

METATARSAL PROTECTION

D3O® is an intelligent, shock-absorbing material. Its molecules draw together to form a „network“ when impacted by a foreign body, and distribute the kinetic energy.

PROTECTION AGAINST HEAT RISKSAND SPRAY FROM MELTED METAL
This standard is a supplement to EN ISO 20345. EN ISO 20349 adds protection against heat risks and spray from melted metal so that the shoe meets minimal requirements for founders and welders. Among other requirements, casting boots are particularly tested for their resistance against the effects of melted metal. Shoes that pass the fluid aluminium test receive an “Al”; and those that pass the fluid iron test receive an “Fe”. All the labels known from EN ISO 20345 remain unchanged.

PROTECTION AGAINST CUTS FROM CHAINSAWS
A 100% protection against cuts from hand-held chainsaws can’t be ensured by personal protective equipment (PPE). However, experience has shown that it is possible for PPE to be designed so as to give a very high degree of protection. Among others, the protective effect can be achieved by the following functional principle: slow down (PPE) the chainsaw by using fibers with high cut resistance–these fibers absorb the chainsaw speed’s kinetic energy. It is very important that the pants overlap the shoes. A cut-resistant shoe of class 2 can withstand a chainsaw speed of 24 m/s.
