HOW TO CHOOSE AND KEEP A SIXTON PEAK® IN PERFECT SHAPE
The collections, branded Sixton Peak®, offer perfectly well-suited solutions for the most diverse work environments and are mainly designed to protect the foot from mechanical risks, adverse environmental conditions (hot, cold, wet, etc.), electrical risks ( anti static, EPA areas) but also the lower limbs and the spine from the pitfalls of everyday work days such as getting on and off the forklift, truck, scaffolding or rough terrain. The right shoe is there for everyone, so the important thing is to know how to choose it.
In order to choose the most suitable footwear, it is necessary to have appropriately assessed the risks that these will have to face.
Sixton Peak® offers a wide range of products to meet these needs with multiple alternatives and technical characteristics and this is done in compliance with the currently valid technical standards and the new EN ISO 20345:2022 standard recently approved and soon in force.
Once you have chosen the most suitable footwear for your needs, when trying them out, we advise you to wear both PPE, carefully check the fit, make sure that they immediately give a feeling of comfort, that the toes are free to move and that the width is right, comfortable but also enveloping to avoid the foot slipping or rubbing.
After having tied them properly, take a few steps and, if you feel really comfortable, buy them!
Remember this recommendation: buy two pairs to wear them every other day and allow time to air out.
The efficiency of a safety shoe, maintaining its performance which makes it a vital element of PPE capable of offering an effective defence against incorrect posture, heavy objects, chemicals and slipping, requires constant care and attention.
