Carbon safety shoe - winner of the 2010 Innovation Polyurethane Award


On September 8th 2010, the uvex motion carbon safety shoe, part of the uvex carbon product system, was awarded the 2010 Innovation Polyurethane Award by the trade association Fachverband Schaumstoffe und Polyurethane e. V. (FSK) in Germany.

Joachim Flemming, Footwear Product Group Manager, accepted the award on behalf of the uvex safety group at a ceremony during the 22nd Foam Conference in Stade/ Hamburg. “The FSK 2010 Innovation Polyurethane Award is confirmation of our ongoing commitment to develop innovations that meet market needs and consequently remain true to our mission of protecting people,” comments Joachim Flemming.
uvex motion carbon has two outstanding innovative features. Firstly, the shoe uses Bayflex Lightweight Technology from Bayer MaterialScience in the polyurethane midsoles. This produces a weight saving of 25 % in the midsole and ensures excellent shock absorption and comfort. In addition, uvex motion carbon is the first safety shoe in the world with adsorptive high-tech material Saratech in the shaft. The adsorptive carbon beads are firmly embedded in the inner lining, do not pose any hazard to health and permanently reduce offensive odours caused by sweating.

HVI Light Plus for Lightning Protection Applications

When installing bare, uninsulated air-termination conductors on the roof, the separation distance to electrical and metal systems installed under the roof surface must be maintained in accordance with the current lightning protection standard DIN EN 62305-3. Cable installations, pipe systems or metal parts are frequently installed under the roofing in direct proximity to the air-termination system / down conductor, thus posing a proximity issue. The solution is isolated air-termination systems with high-voltage-resistant, insulated down conductors.

DEHNventil ACI M: Standard-compliant Surge Protection in Industry

High demands are placed on the availability of switchgear in, for example, industrial plants, data centres, hospitals and large administrative buildings. This makes surge protection essential. At the same time, replacement of the surge protection module should not influence system availability. The new DEHNventil ACI M TNS 264 FM has no backup fuse and is flexible in terms of its application. In the event of a fault, the protection module is safely disconnected and can be quickly removed from the base part from either side or the front. The touch-safe design allows the protection module to be replaced without system downtime. The ACI technology employed also enables connection cross-sections of just 16 mm2. This facilitates installation and saves time.
