HAIX has announced the launch of its new Protector Light 2.0 forestry boot. The latest addition to its range has been designed for wear in warmer weather, whilst still offering the user protection and comfort.
The HAIX Climate System helps to maintain an optimum foot temperature in the boot, using the pumping movement of every step to circulate cool air into the boot via vent holes in the top. The anatomically formed footbed absorbs moisture and dries quickly, keeping feet dry and fresh throughout a long day’s wear.
The company says the Protector Light 2.0 is an example of its commitment to balancing safety and protection with wearer comfort. Made from “high-quality materials including oiled nubuk leather”, it is certified to the S3 standard (EN ISO 20345:2011) and Class 1 Cut protection.
While optimised for warmer weather, a stringent series of wear-tests conducted by the Board of Trustees for Forestry and Forest Technology has certified that the Protector Light 2.0 achieves the KWF-Level Standard, guaranteeing the boots support and protect forestry and outdoor workers year-round.
“The new sole unit on the Protector Light 2.0 provides improved slip resistance and durability, alongside the tried and tested safety features of the original Protector Light, while decreasing overall boot weight,” says Simon Ash, HAIX UK sales manager. “We’re dedicated to helping forestry and outdoor workers make light work of seasonal tasks like felling and clearance by ensuring their footwear offers high levels of protection, reliability and comfort.”
