uvex understands that everyone is an individual and when it comes to personal protective equipment (PPE) one size does not fit all. It may seem obvious, but correctly sized PPE can help avoid accidents, reduce discomfort and increase productivity. If employees find their PPE uncomfortable chances are they won't wear it. uvex has the solution with a range of products designed to fit those with smaller dimensions so everyone gets the protection they deserve.
We are committed to the design and production of product solutions that can be tailored to individual requirements delivering absolute consistency of protection performance levels. The below range of products have been specifically selected for those that find sizing of standard PPE problematic.

uvex recognises the relationship between functional ergonomics and sensory aesthetics. The best designs are those that combine these disciplines, providing practical solutions in styles that excite the wearer.
The uvex 1 range of safety footwear does exactly this, with our female models manufactured specifically for the shape of the female foot. Women have a lighter bone weight, with softer and more flexible joints. These physiological differences translate to differences in footwear design, particularly with safety shoes.
uvex 1 safety footwear has been designed specifically to combat fatigue and offer long-term comfort to the wearer. A lower weight reduces the strain on the body and also reduces risk of injury.
While it is important to chose the correct safety gloves for the job and environment, it is equally important to ensure your safety gloves fit properly. A correct fit means the gloves will be comfortable to wear and workers are more likely to keep them on. If gloves are too big they can affect grip or get caught in moving parts or tools.

It is essential to have effective acoustic insulation to protect your hearing in noisy environments. With the right protection, harmful or irritating noise can be isolated, while important alarm signals are still audible and speech perception is not adversely affected. However, ear canals vary greatly in size and shape making it essential to find one that fits your individual ear. For this reason, uvex offers a number of forms of hearing protection, appropriate for all sizes of ear canals so you can be sure to find the most suitable one for both your environment and your ear size.
uvex xact-fit These innovative earplugs adapt perfectly to the human ear with a novel design based on the anatomy of the ear canal. This noticably reduces pressure inside the ear, making them extremely comfortable to wear even for long periods. Shaped left and right arms allow quick, easy and hygenic insertion.
uvex hi-com Integrated cavities in the design of the uvex hi-com earplugs provide softer acoustics and absorb disruptive noises. They also allow excellent speech perception to allow communication while at the same time protecting your hearing.
uvex com4-fit With its compact, ergonomic tapered design, the uvex com4-fit is comfortable for wearers with narrower ear canals. The uvex com4-fit has a sealed surface, preventing foreign bodies from penetrating the plug. The soft foam provides a high level of comfort, even when worn for extended periods.
