HAIX to Showcase Elite Emergency Services Footwear Range at ESS 2021
Global manufacturer of specialist footwear, HAIX, will be returning to The Emergency Services Show 2021, September 7-8, NEC Birmingham, to showcase the latest innovations in footwear for all emergency service workers on stand L77.
In the HAIX tent, visitors will find a range of footwear manufactured in Europe using industry-leading techniques and high-grade materials, including the Rescue One, Combat GTX and Black Eagle Safety 50. For firefighters and the challenging conditions they encounter, the Fire Hero 3.0 will also be on display, and the knowledgeable HAIX team will be on hand to answer any questions and advise visitors first hand.
For protection on every mission, the Rescue One is equipped with cutting-edge GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminate technology, offering superior penetration protection against pathogens found in blood and body fluids as well as common chemicals. Constructed from high-quality materials, including 2.2mm thick waterproof and hydrophobic leather, the Rescue One is metal-free and offers all-round safety with an anatomically formed and ultralight protective toe cap. The safety boot features a sturdy rubber/PU sole, providing wearers with a confident grip in slippery underfoot environments while ensuring exceptional impact absorption and correct heel-to-toe movement. The safety footwear features a side zipper to make putting the boots on and taking them off faster and easier, so wearers are not at risk of potential injury or wasted time when an emergency requires their critical assistance.
Military boots are often associated with discomfort and injury, however, the COMBAT GTX’s built-in Arch Support System ensures the foot's curvature is supported and kept in the optimal position for overall foot health. Meanwhile the cushioning sole makes sure toes and joints have sufficient space, helping to relieve pressure points and prevent feet from becoming sore or fatigued. The slip-resistant Rubber/PU sole guarantees traction across surfaces, even those covered in petrol, water or oil. The superior bending comfort and grip make the combat boot perfect on and off duty, from intensive training sessions to adventures on leave. The boots’ GORE-TEX® Performance inner lining maintains waterproofing while being highly breathable, ensuring wearer comfort through all seasons and long periods of wear.
BLACK EAGLE SAFETY 50 MID
The Black Eagle Safety 50 continuously exceeds expectations by performing well on different surfaces and environments making it the ideal boot for paramedics or for use in fire stations. The moisture resistant and waterproof boot provides superior comfort with its well cushioned and anti-bacterial insoles, for all day support. The Black Eagle Safety 50’s extra light protective toe cap and rubber compound provides agility, durability and strong grip on different terrains; crucial for the police force. HAIX has also incorporated sophisticated fabric technology into the boot, including a breathable GORETEX® layer and HAIX Climate System, to keep feet fresh and cool.
FIRE HERO 3.0
The Fire Hero 3.0 brings lightweight functionality and defence to the firefighting industry, with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® technology ensuring watertight and breathable qualities and an abrasion-resistant lining, suitable for all weathers. The dynamic boot benefits from a slip resistant profiled rubber sole that offers optimal performance and insulation in water, ice, and snow and fulfils the highest demands of the European Standards EN 15090:2012 + SRC. Protective features are enhanced with a fibre-reinforced plastic toe cap and Class 2 cut protection that can withstand chainsaw cuts up to a speed of 24 m/s. With the development of three different insoles, the Fire Hero 3.0 boots can be adapted to fit individual widths to suit both wide and narrow feet, while the two-zone lacing system, patented by HAIX, offers quick and easy lacing adjustment for the correct fit.
HAIX supports firefighters, police, emergency services and taskforces with high-quality, reliable footwear in more than 80 countries. When visiting the HAIX tent, attendees can witness first-hand HAIX’s technical expertise which exceeds safety standards and supports uniformed professionals throughout the emergency services sector.
