Continuing the evolution of its industry-leading range of protective forestry footwear, HAIX announces the launch of the Protector Light 2.0 forestry boot – optimised for warmer weather while retaining high levels of protection and comfort.
The Protector Light 2.0 is an example of the HAIX commitment to balancing safety and protection with wearer comfort. Constructed from high-quality materials including oiled nubuk leather, the boot is certified to the S3 standard (EN ISO 20345:2011), ensuring a high degree of water-resistance, toe protection, antistatic properties and enhanced midsole-penetration resistance. The Protector Light 2.0 is further certified with Class 1 Cut protection, giving added protection to outdoor and forestry workers.
Working outdoors provides wearers with seasonal challenges including warmer weather in the spring and summer. The Protector Light 2.0 works to maintain an optimum foot temperature, with the HAIX Climate System 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.
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.”
