  2. • Soft rubberised materials for 100% memory without loss of function
  3. • Abrasive resistant cover protects from objects penetrating the knee
  4. • Washable
  5. • Curved to fit around knee
  6. • Shallow scoop at base of kneepad prevents nerve ‘deadening’ in knee and leg
  7. • Elevates knee to reduce pressure on leg, ankle and foot joints
  8. • Laboratory impact tests show the knee is immediately protected reducing the chance of short and long-term damage to the knee joints*
  9. • Will take one and a half times more pressure than other kneepads allowing the kneepad to take the strain and not the knee joints

  17. • Significantly outperforms foam and gel foam pads*
  18. • Tests prove that Redbacks™ are 70% better at absorbing the user’s weight than any other slide-in knee pad currently on the market
  19. • Designed for long term use
  20. • Suitable for use with a ‘kicker’
  21. • CE approved Type 2 Level 1 Have penetration protection against sharp objects such as glass, nails, needles and splinter up to 100 Newtons
  22. No other knee pad for work trousers can compare with the all-round performance of Redbacks™**
  23. • Patented worldwide***

*Test designed and undertaken in laboratory conditions at Staffordshire University in October 2008 at the Movement Analysis Laboratory by Prof. Nachi Chockalingam using static and controlled loads representative of impact forces when the kneepads are in use.  These impact forces were tested using equipment calibrated and in use for Staffordshire University.  The loads used are greater than those required for EN:14404:2004+2010 and represent a greater spectrum of users

**CE EN 14404-2004 + A1:2010 Type 2 Level 1
