PANTER has for every work safety requirement on the market. We have developed our insoles with biomechanical criteria on mind, prioritising ergonomics, mobility and comfort, in our endeavour to provide the highest level of protection to your feet at your workplace.
· 40% LIGHTER
With a non-metallic insole and toecap, a lower weight is achieved than when it is metallic, this provides greater comfort and relief to the foot.
· 50% MORE FLEXIBLE
With a non-metallic insole, a more flexible and comfortable shoe is achieved, taking into account a factor as important as the natural flexion of the foot.
· 100% METAL FREE FOOTWEAR
PANTER's MetalFree footwear is free of metallic components both inside (textile anti-perforation insole, composite anti-impact toecap) and outside (textile or plastic eyelets, non-metallic trim, etc...)
· GREATER THERMAL INSULATION
Metals are not good thermal insulators, on the other hand, composites and fiberglass achieve a significant improvement in thermal insulation, avoiding the conduction of heat and cold.
As it is made of non-metallic materials, a non-magnetic shoe is achieved, so that it is not detected in metal detection arches.
A shoe without static electricity is also achieved, thus increasing the comfort of the user.
· RESPONSE TO CRUSHING
Another very important characteristic is the response of the material after an impact. This type of material, unlike steel, recovers its shape after impact thanks to elastic memory. This is very important in the event of entrapment as this makes it easier to extract the foot.
· CORROSION RESISTANT
As it is not a metallic material, there is no risk of oxidation.
The slogan “Confidence in Textiles” is synonymous worldwide with responsibility for textile production, safety and transparency
• RELIABLE FABRICS, STANDARD 100
The Oeko-tex Standard 100 is the world’s leading eco-label for determining whether textile articles contain harmful substances. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a worldwide, unified testing and certification system for textiles at all stages of processing.
Tests for toxic substances include substances which are prohibited and regulated by law, chemicals which are considered hazardous to health, as well as preventive parameters.
The COMFORT SEAL guarantees the comfort of footwear, through an evaluation carried out based on:
APPARENT COMFORT. Analysis of comfort during use and qualitative identification of materials and components
CHARACTERIZATION OF PHYSICAL PROPERTIES. Determination of properties related to comfort such as hardness, rigidity, sweat management, impact/energy absorption, slip and antistatic characteristics.
DIMENSIONAL CONTROL. Analysis of the homogeneity of manufacturing in terms of weight and dimensions of all the scaling.
SIMULATION OF USE. Analysis by a panel of qualified and controlled fit testers and ergonomics.
The FUNCTIONAL SEAL ensures that footwear is healthy and comfortable based on its use, through an evaluation carried out based on:
APPARENT COMFORT. Analysis of comfort during use and qualitative identification of materials and components.
SIMULATION OF USE. Analysis by a panel of qualified and controlled testers of specific user and usage requirements.
THERMAL COMFORT. Evaluation of the thermal response of the shoe and the foot during use and analysis of thermal management to interpret properties such as breathability, thermal insulation and thermoregulation.
ANALYSIS OF THE FOOTPRINT. Analysis of the distribution of plantar pressures and being able to interpret aspects such as the perception of comfort, grip, stability and the distribution of forces.
ANALYSIS OF MUSCLE ACTIVITY. Evaluation of the muscular activity required during walking and the perception of muscular fatigue.
MOVEMENT ANALYSIS. Analysis of the mobility of the joints, stability, cushioning of impacts when walking and the grip of footwear on different surfaces.
