Experience a new level of breathable Safety Footwear
GORE‑TEX® SURROUND® FOOTWEAR
THE ONLY GORE‑TEX® SAFETY FOOTWEAR (S3) WITH 360° BREATHABILITY
- Highly Breathable All-Around
- Durably Waterproof All-Around
- Penetration resistant sole construction (S3)
Nearly 1/3 of the sweat glands of the foot are on the sole. Nevertheless, most conventional safety shoes are not constructed to allow breathability in this area.
Thanks to the innovative SURROUND® open sole structure, including a breathable laminate inserted below the foot, GORE-TEX® safety shoes with SURROUND® product technology provide a new level of breathability:
Moisture and warmth are not only conducted via the upper of the safety shoe, but also downwards – through the special GORE-TEX® laminate in the sole area – into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through side sole openings.
Your feet stay dry and comfortable even at higher temperatures or during physically strenuous activities.
Almost one third of the sweat glands of the feet are on the soles
Climate chamber tests show a significant reduction of the relative skin moisture
GORE-TEX® SURROUND® safety footwear is durably waterproof. At the same time it offers protection against penetration of commonly occurring chemicals1, in accordance with ISO 13994/ASTM F 903 , method C1.
Durable waterproofness of GORE-TEX® safety footwear with SURROUND® product technology is ensured by special GORE-TEX® lining laminates integrated into the upper and the sole of the shoe.
The sole is then attached to the upper either using an injection moulded or cemented construction.
1 Commonly occurring chemicals include AFF Fire-fighting foam (3%), sulphuric acid H2SO4(37%) diesel and caustic soda NaOH (30%)
GORE-TEX® SURROUND® safety footwear is equipped with an innovative sole construction. The penetration resistant sole is positioned underneath the mid sole with the side sole openings and is offering reliable protection compliant with EN ISO 20345 for S3 certified footwear.
