Hard work all day, every day, means that some tradespeople put more pressure on their knees than many top athletes, so the risk of long-term knee injuries and chronic pain can be far higher among trade professionals than most other occupations.
Snickers Workwear’s trousers and kneepad combination solution, invented more than 30 years ago, has now become the patented Kneeguard and unique Kneeguard PRO system which delivers advanced knee protection for frequent kneeling on site, ‘as well as those annoying knocks and bumps around the workplace’.
Designed specifically for the slim-fit stretch work trousers, the newest slim-fit D30 Ergo kneepads are made of durable material that moulds around the knee to provide enhanced impact protection. It has an EN 14404 Type 2 Level 1 rating to guard against pebbles, nails and various floor debris. There’s also superior cushioning and protection as standard with D3O – a high-tech material that’s flexible, durable and cut-resistant.
