Redbacks Cushioning Ltd.

UK SAFETY TECHNOLOGY COMPANY TO LAUNCH WORLD FIRST IN FOOTWEAR AND KNEE PROTECTION DEVELOPMENT AT A + A

Redbacks Cushioning Limited - Hall 11, Stand: 11E28
Redbacks Cushioning Limited, a British company specialising in cushioning and personal protection technology, is to introduce a range of innovative new products for both foot and knee health and safety, at this year’s A + A Trade Fair, the World’s largest specialist safety and security exhibition. (Dusseldorf, October 27-30, 2015).
The footwear is a World’s first in midsole and insole design that is not based on the traditional materials of gel or foam. The construction incorporates proven, award-winning, leaf-spring cushioning technology which is a new, revolutionary design scientifically proven to align and mirror the feet’s natural movement. This encourages comprehensive energy return and superior comfort whilst supporting the three main areas of the feet to provide a ‘walking on air’ feel.
For a number of years the company has been producing Redbacks kneepads for pocketed work trousers, which incorporate an engineered suspension system designed to give the highest levels of protection. This technology has gained an innovation award from SATRA for PPE (personal protection equipment). At A + A, Redbacks Cushioning will introduce three new strapped kneepad products using the same system, two with a hard and flexible shell and one with a soft face; they contain a number of new features including an articulated-hinged strap and a unique design to reduce pressure at the back of the knee.
The patented design and construction of the company’s products are currently based on a special moulded leaf-spring suspended in an arch by a flexible honeycomb matrix. When pressure is applied directly above the spring it levels, dispersing the force and spreading the weight. The matrix provides a holding mechanism for the spring to control its bend and stabilise the entire structure, allowing pressure to be distributed evenly time after time.
