Redbacks Technology to Protect North Americas Workforce
One of Canada’s leading safety components suppliers, Swenco Limited of Waterloo, Ontario have agreed to co-brand Redbacks knee pads with Swenco‘s Steel-Flex label.
For more than 50 years, Swenco Limited has been North America’s largest manufacturer and most-trusted supplier of engineered safety components used in most recognized brands of safety footwear, including Honeywell, Kodiak, Timberland, Dakota, Terra, STC, Red Wing, Baffin and many others; it has chosen Redbacks kneepads because of their unique leaf-spring design, which unlike foam backed pads, maintain maximum cushioning effect throughout consecutive or prolonged use.
Commenting on the new appointment, Cliff Lockyer, CEO of Redbacks Cushioning Limited said: “We are naturally delighted that our kneepads have been recognised by Swenco Limited as a potentially big selling line throughout North America; they were impressed with our own home and international success record after just 4 years in business and, in keeping with their forward thinking policies, were keen to offer such tried and tested extra safety benefits to their customers”.
The patented design and construction of the company’s products are based on a special moulded leaf-spring suspended in an arch by a flexible honeycomb matrix. When pressure is applied directly above the soft leaf spring it levels, dispersing the force and spreading the weight. Redbacks knee pads come in two formats: one that straps over the knee, and one that slips into knee pockets of specially designed workwear.
“This is a very innovative product that aligns nicely with the high standards of quality and protection set by the Steel-Flex Puncture Resistant Insole and the Steel-Flex Steel Toe Overshoe,” said Matthew Rowlands, Swenco’s assistant general manager. “The hard-working North American knee is about to get some much-needed stress relief.’’
“This agreement underscores Swenco’s commitment to developing and sourcing products that help people safely pursue their work and recreational activities,” Rowlands said.
