Effective temperature control is particularly important in the field of safety footwear. uvex climazone is an innovative head-to-toe climate control system. We have combined our expertise in research and product development with the use of intelligent materials and processing technologies to develop a unique range of climate-optimising safety footwear.
In collaboration with renowned institutes such as the Prüf- und Forschungsinstitut Pirmasens e. V. (Test and Research Institute for Footwear Production), Kaiserslauten University of Applied Sciences and the Hohenstein Institutes, we have been researching climate conditions for a long time. Testing methods and devices are being developed that enable a comprehensive and solid measurement of climate characteristics for the first time. Hot or cold feet, as well as discomfort from heavy sweating, can be real problems in the workplace – that's why perfect climate control is especially important for safety shoes.
The feet produce enough sweat during intense physical activity to fill an entire glass of water over the course of a day. uvex climazone draws this moisture away leaving dry feet and creating a pleasant and comfortable climate. This reduces the risk of discomfort caused by blisters, fungal infections or even mild hypothermia.
