Following the motto "Safe. Innovative. Robust." uvex is presenting one of its new highlights at the upcoming A+A in Düsseldorf – the uvex 2 construction. The new uvex 2 construction was developed to meet the specific challenges of the construction industry. The construction and manufacturing industries really put workers and their footwear to the test.
In addition to high mechanical stress, extreme weather conditions are often a factor too. Thanks to their intelligent design and innovative technologies, the uvex 2 construction models offer reliable protection, stability and exceptional comfort.
Equipped with many features and technologies, the uvex 2 construction certainly lives up to the label “the essential all-rounder". The anatomically shaped heel basket provides stability and protection against twisted ankles, especially on uneven surfaces. The reflective side strips provide optimal visibility and safety, especially in poorly lit working environments. The deep, self-cleaning sole profile ensures perfect grip without slipping, even on ladders or smooth surfaces.
Thanks to the special uvex waterstop technology, the new uvex 2 construction has values four times higher than those specified by water penetration and absorption testing.
The uvex 2 construction is also sustainably produced and is free from harmful substances according to the banned hazardous substances list. The uvex 2 construction is available in three attractive colourways: Black/petrol blue, black/grey and pure black.
