HAIX FIRE BRIGADE BOOTS
Fire fighters in Los Angeles, New York, Hamburg, Mexico City, Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo all place their trust in HAIX boots. HAIX fire brigade boots are robust and reliable and provide comfort and safety whatever the terrain.
A FIRM FOOTHOLD ON different SURFACE
HAIX fire brigade boots offer a secure grip in every situation, regardless of whether you are working in the ice, wet or snow. All of this is guaranteed by an extremely slip-resistant sole with a particularly deep tread.
The outsole of HAIX’s fire brigade boots is also waterproof, antistatic and resistant to oil and petrol. It provides outstanding insulation against the cold and heat as well as being puncture resistant. This means that you will minimize the risk of injury if you encounter any shattered window panes, rubble or sharp-edged beams whilst carrying out your duties. A robust toe cap and an additional protective cap in abrasion-resistant rubber offer further security.
SAFETY AT WORK
HAIX fire brigade boots comply with the EN 15090:2012 standard, Type F2A, HI3, and therefore fulfil all prerequisites for this type of footwear. They are ideally suited to combating fires both indoors and outside and provide the very highest level of heat protection (250 degrees over a period of 40 minutes).
COMFORT OF WEAR
As well as adhering to important safety requirements, HAIX fire brigade boots are also extremely comfortable to wear. A patented shock-absorption system cushions your steps to reduce pressure on the back and spine. No pressure points or slippage occurs, even after several hours on your feet. Three different insoles enable most of the slip-on and lace-up boots in the range to be perfectly adjusted to the shape of your feet. This means that they are the ideal choice for fire fighters with especially narrow or broad feet.
Stable and secure fire brigade boots
Fire fighters often need to put themselves in harm’s way when they go out on rescue missions. HAIX lace-up and slip-on fire brigade boots are certified in accordance with the EN 15090:2012. They offer total protection when you need it most. Both the boots and their outsoles are:
- watertight and resistant to chemicals
- puncture resistant
- slip resistant
- provide insulation against the heat and cold.
They also fulfil the relevant statutory requirements, as indicated by the F2A pictogram with which they are labelled. An F2A boot is antistatic and is particularly suited to use in closed indoor spaces such as buildings, vehicles and ships. HI3 is an indicator of the protective function of the boots in situations of extreme heat and means that they are able to withstand temperatures of up to 250 degrees for as long as 40 minutes.
Protection via a GORE-TEX® and CROSSTECH® membrane
HAIX slip-on and lace-up boots from the fire brigade range have been specially designed for use in water. GORE-TEX® and CROSSTECH® membranes guarantee that moisture cannot penetrate. HAIX fire fighter boots with CROSSTECH® are also resistant against blood, bacteria, chemicals such as oil, lubricants and fuel, solvents and mild acids.
At the same time, the breathable material used in their manufacture also means that you will not sweat unnecessary. Whatever the weather, your feet stay pleasantly dry. The HAIX patented Climate System uses the pumping movements generated as you walk along to transport moisture to special openings at the shaft of the boot for expulsion. Special pigments contained within the leather reflect sunlight and stop the boot from overheating in summer.
Speed when you need it
HAIX fire brigade boots offer outstanding climate comfort and comfort of wear as well as fulfilling the EN 15090:2012 standard, Type F2A and HI3.
