Footwear design can be a major contributor to heat stress at work. uvex climazone is an innovative climate control system that has been developed to optimise breathability and internal airflow within the footwear to help keep workers cool.
uvex scientific research and development processes ensures the climate-optimising uvex climazone range of safety footwear helps draw moisture away from the feet to create a pleasant and comfortable environment within the footwear.
uvex has been researching climate conditions for a long time. 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, 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 – that's why perfect climate control is especially important for safety footwear.
