Safety Shoes for Emergency Services
Safety shoes are functional work footwear for emergency services, which protect the foot from mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical injuries during rescue missions. As a result, they have to meet the requirements of specific safety requirements, e.g. safety classification S3.
Requirements for Safety Shoes
Since rescue missions can happen outdoors as well as inside buildings, the shoes have to perfectly adapt to different environments and undergrounds. In this category, you can find high-quality safety shoes and safety boots from Haix, which are made from water resistant or waterproof materials while also being breathable.
As a result, the shoes are perfectly safe from invasive moisture and liquids, such as blood and other bodily fluids. Simultaneously, the breathable material keeps the feet dry from the inside, granting maximum comfort even in a warmer climate.
The black Haix safety shoes are equipped with a slip-, oil- and gasoline resistant sole, allowing for a good grip on wet floors. Additional protection is granted by the anti-perforation sole, which prevents injuries through shards and other sharp objects at the operation site.
Moreover, a protective cap covers the toe area to prevent injuries caused by falling objects.
For a higher level of protection against electrical discharges, Praxidienst also offers safety shoes with an anti-static ESD sole, such as the “Haix Nevada Pro”. This shoe meets the safety requirements of EN ISO 20345 and possesses a higher level of contact resistance thanks to its specialised anti-static sole.
Haix Safety Boots for Special Operations
Safety boots are often used for rescue missions on rough terrains, as their shank height offers a higher level of stability thanks to their strong grip on the ankle. This prevents injuries that are caused by twisting one’s ankle. The instantly operational boots are equipped with a quick-lock, a lace-zipper-system or with Velcro strips, which allows the user to quickly put them on and take them off.
The Haix functional boot “Airpower XR1” is particularly popular. The safety boot is equipped with the patented lace-zipper-system – while the laces allow the boot to be adjusted individually and grant a good grip, the zipper allow the boot to be put on quickly. In addition, the boot is waterproof, puncture-resistant and meets the safety requirements of the safety classification S3.
If you need a safety boot for fire fighting, our online shop offers the “Airpower XR91”. The flame resistant boot is authorised for outdoor missions and is equipped with a metal anti-perforation protection to effectively protect the foot from sharp objects.
To allow the safety shoes and safety boots to be used indoors as well as outdoors, Praxisdienst offers a variety of workwear with non-marking soles that don’t stain the floors.
