The non-metallic, anti-puncture sole provides the wearer with flexibility whilst protecting the entire surface of the foot.
For added comfort, the boots are also equipped with a moisture-wicking and rapid-drying insole.The sporty design and classic look, with the Heckel logo embossed on each pair, make each model stylish and unique.

One major innovation is the Tychem® 6000 F FaceSeal, a tight coverall that features an integral rubber seal around the hood aperture. Designed to provide a perfect fit and tightness when wearing a full-face mask, this is the garment of choice for applications where liquid leaks may be a particular hazard. As well as providing protection for the wearer, the FaceSeal eliminates the need to use supplementary taping, which saves time when donning and doffing the garment and could therefore improve response times in emergency situations.
