Slip-resistant safety footwear
18 September 2018
U-Power’s new RedLion range of safety footwear is said to be one of the most slip-resistant on the market.
Because the workplace floor cannot always be relied on to be non-slip and may be contaminated with water, oil, grease, food or other residues, anti-slip safety shoes are essential in many industries such as construction, food manufacturing, offshore oil and gas and utilities.
Wearers of any of RedLion’s 40 different, sporty, high-performance models, which are all classified SRC, meaning they have more than met the specified requirements when tested on both wet ceramic tiles and steel with glycerol, can be confident of their safety, U-power says.
To have maximum slip-resistance, safety footwear should fit properly, be extremely comfortable, and have a flexible sole with an effective tread pattern that grips the floor, no matter what the conditions. The RedLion is said to fulfil all these criteria with ease.
The RedLion has a coefficient of friction (CoF) of 0.82, double the industry standard, demonstrating its excellent resistance to slip accidents.
