uvex 2 safety footwear – basic features


Controlling undesired electrostatic charge is assuming an increasingly important role in industry and more and more employees come into contact with processes, materials or(objects which are sensitive to electro static.

It is often necessary to use safety footwear as part of a system to conduct electrostatic charge in such workplaces.

Independent of various measuring methods, volume resistance between 100 kiloohms (1.0 × 105 ohms) and 35 megohms (3.5 × 107 ohms) is still( required to fulfil the various relevant norms (e. g. EN ISO 20345, EN(61340).

R = electrical resistance

The uvex 2 PU/PU sole is free from harmful substances that interfere with wetting agents.

uvex xenova® System

The uvex xenova® system is a comprehensive, completely metal-free safety system to protect the foot inside a safety shoe.

Latest generation uvex xenova® toe cap: The cap sits perfectly without pressure points. Ensuring increased wearer comfort when kneeling and during impacts.

uvex xenova® penetration-resistant midsole: The flexible, penetration-resistant xenova® midsole exactly matches the width of the insole. The metal-free toe cap and midsole don’t transmit the cold and are comfortable to wear.

The uvex safety shoes certified for orthopaedic adaptations are based on established uvex technologies. You can recognise them by the uvex medicare symbol in the production descriptions.

All individual and special orthopaedic solutions are developed by our orthopaedic master shoemakers. The uvex network of certified orthopaedic businesses looks after the adaptation service locally.

Our individual and special orthopaedic solutions are certified and type-examined by the Prüf- und Forschungsinstitut Pirmasens e. V. (Test and Research Institute for Footwear Production) and TÜV Rheinland and meet the following standards:

• DGUV 112-191/ÖNORM Z 1259: meets the requirements of the revised rules of the institutions for statutory accident insurance and prevention for health and safety at work – DGUV 112-191 (Germany) and ÖNORM Z 1259 (Austria).

Relieve strain with every step
The first class multilayer shock absorption system has been specifically developed for use in demanding conditions, providing effective protection for the back and joints.

100% better than the standard
With up to 40 joules of energy absorption in the heel area, the uvex 2 reduces strain on the body. In spite of the penetration-resistant midsole (S1 P, S3), the energy absorption in the heel is approximately twice that required by EN ISO 20345.

The uvex 2 multilayer shock absorption system and anti-static comfort insole with additional shock absorption elements at the heel and forefoot, help protect the musculoskeletal system on hard or rough terrain.
