Safety kneepads attack microbes
24 July 2013
A multi-award winning, nonfoam, pocketed workwear safety kneepad, constructed from flexible antimicrobial thermoplastic elastomers, is believed to be the first workwear kneepad which attacks micro-organisms at source, helping to protect the wearer from knee infection and prevent the spread of disease within the workplace.
Having to kneel in any work situation can increase the risk of developing and spreading germs caused by heat and accumulated, absorbed dirt. The antimicrobial properties within Redbacks kneepads which have been independently tested to ISO 22196, are effective against MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and other harmful bacteria.
The 'cushioning technology' and flexibility of the kneepads also ensure that there is no friction danger of skin abrasion caused by internal shear forces within the knee surface.
Unlike their foam-based counterparts, the honeycomb matrix and TPE leaf-spring construction of the kneepads return them to their original form after prolonged pressure, offering the same high level of protection.
The nano silver particulate which forms the basis of the antimicrobial protection remains unaffected by washing or unlikely damage.
