TECHOLOGIES AND MATERIALS: SAFETY
Nickelfree steel toe cap and midsole
Usually, the end users rarely take care about which kind of metal the midsole or the toe cap was made from. Yet, the contact with skin could cause allergic reactions. Moreover, the nickel free steel toecaps and midsoles are lighter than ones made of nickel-coated steel. So the double advantages are obvious.
The main advantage of new generation of toe caps made from composite material is definitely light weight. Furthermore, the fiberCap is stainless and thermo neutral, so end user’s feet feels comfortable both during low& high temperatures.
Another alternative to steel toe caps are aluminium toe caps. Being as light as toe caps made from composite materials, they offer one more advantage. The aluComfort caps that are used in our shoes are only 2 mm thick - so the foot fits better without any compromises in safety.
Your safety combined with comfort is our main goal. The maxFlex midsole is a perfect example of such combination - ensuring full safety due to kevlar material it is extremly flexible and breathable. Check it yourself!
All our shoes have two layers of sole - the inner PU one and the outsole. During production of shoe we use polyurethane of famous German chemicals manufacturer BASF®. For that reason the inner layer is durable but soft enough to ensure aprropriate weight distribution during work. In such a way your feet in TALAN shoes will not only fell much less exhausted during workload, but also your joints will be healthier.
Our PU outsoles from BASF materials are light and flexible, yet with high durability, perform well in aggressive work conditions, such as chemical or oil environment, and have remarkable slip resistance - up to 2.3 times higher than required by europian standards.
An upgraded version of regular PU-PU sole offers better slip-proofness as well as significantly higher tear resistance (up to 40% higher than required by european standards) - and in that way much longer lifetime.
Due to unique injection technology our developers have created a PU-nitril sole for TALAN shoes. Being as resistant and comfortable as regular PU-PU sole, such solution offers much better slip-proofness, flexibilty even under low temperatures, resistance to high temperatures and better durability. Advantages are obvious!
Innovative cleat system FullPower duoSystem ensures much better slip resistance and surface traction due to bigger contaction area because of cleats form. Now you can be sure about your safety - even on wet or grease floor.
Ankle protection systems
When you work in special conditions sometimes you need additional protection. Especially your joints - and we take care about that!
The Extra Support System ESP enables secure heel fixing protecting your joints in case of knock over, thus making work especially on unstable surfaces much safier
An advanced version of ESP system - Heel Support System HSS - not only ensures better fixation of your joints, but also offers additional protection for ankle bone on the side where it has maximal risk to be hitted.
Techologies and Materials: Comfort
We know exactly what is most important for manufacturing of durable and comfortable protective shoes, it is leather. For this reason we pay a lot of attention to leather materials, and the best witness of it is the fact that Talan is the only manufacturer of safety shoes who has its own office in India with only one purpose - to check the quality of leather we use.
strongProtection in not only just 2 mm thick leather. We are sure that it not only corresponds to all the standards but even shows higher performance - as approved by TÜV Rheinland independent laboratory, this kind of leather has up to 2,7 times higher tear resistance and up to 3 times better breathability than required by EN:ISO 20345 standard.
Everyone who has something to do with leather knows that CrazyHorse is the sort of highest quality. World known brands of wallets, reticule and other accessories use CrazyHorse leather in their production. Still, except its attractive look and long wear life it also has astonishing breathability - up to 8,6 times higher than required by EN:ISO standards! We use best materials in our shoes - and CrazyHorse leather is one of them.
Cordura® lining material is a poly-amid-fiber with special thread structure. During production of Cordura® cut poly-amide fibers are double spun by each other and then woven. This gives the fabric four times higher tearing strength than by a simple nylon. Moreover, Cordura® is water repellent, highly breathable and light.
Every shoe protection class was developed for special purposes. For example, S1P protection class should protect your toes from impact as well as your leg from penetration from below and is not supposed to be water-repellent. But if you work under such conditions - e.g. in a warehouse - you suppose the shoe to have high breathability. Due to special abrasive-resistant PU coating that naturally preserve the form of shoe our designers was able to use very gentle and highly breathable lining. Breathable and durable solution for uppers - perfect for S1P shoes!
The quality of lining is very important for safety shoes because it is in contact with the feet of the worker wearing it at least for 8 hours a day. It has to be not only wear resistant but also highly breathable. That`s why airSurf Fabric has up to 5,6 times better tear resistance and up to 30 times higher breathability than required by EN:ISO standards, what is proofed by testing protocols of TÜV Rheinland laboratory.
TEKLIFE is a development of Italian manufacturer Siretessile® who specializes on production of technical textiles for shoes industry. The TEKLIFE®-fabric is not only highly soft and has great moisture absorbing characteristics. Moreover, it prevents also the plaque formation in the shoes, it makes shoes protected from unpleasant smell. Combined with high abrasion resistance that all makes TEKLIFE® lining the best choice for protective shoes.
Vildona removable insole
Vildona insole made of specian non wowen textil blend has perfect heat isolating attributes as well as ecxellent absorbing characteristics. It absorbs water vapour during wearing, desorbing it while drying in the night. Moreover, it is washable in water up to 30°C and is anatomically shaped to decrease the orthopedic loads on the feet.
Comfort wearing is one of most important factors for a safety shoes. Knowing that we used the last from Italian manufacturer well known in shoes industry - and we are sure your feet will feel it!
