HAIX will be returning to The Emergency Services Show 2022, September 21st-22nd, NEC Birmingham, to showcase the latest innovations in footwear for all emergency service workers in Hall 5, stand #C34.
At the HAIX stand, visitors will find a range of footwear manufactured in Europe using industry-leading techniques and high-grade materials, including HAIX’s latest innovation, the FIRE EAGLE® 2.0 – the world’s fastest firefighter boot. Featuring HAIX’s RapidFit system, the FIRE EAGLE ® 2.0 can be pulled on quickly and fitted to the individual foot in just one movement – critical when a call comes in and every second counts.
The knowledgeable HAIX team will be available on the stand to answer any questions and advise visitors first-hand.
Presenting the FIRE EAGLE® 2.0
The FIRE EAGLE® 2.0 provides all-round protection with a toe cap made of fibre-reinforced plastic, penetration protection and a non-slip, heat-resistant sole. The GORE-CROSSTECH laminate not only makes the shoe waterproof but also offers penetration protection against blood and other bodily fluids as well as any resultant viruses and bacteria. Reflective inserts in a signal colour ensure good visibility, even in thick smoke.
For maximum comfort, a cushioning insole and the Arch Support System ensure optimal foot support and a secure hold. The HAIX Climate System uses the foot’s pumping motion when walking to wick moisture out of the shoe, ensuring feet stay at an optimum temperature.
Like its predecessor, the FIRE EAGLE® 2.0 stands out for its lightweight design of around 1,000 grams per shoe, ensuring comfort without compromising on durability. Other innovations include an RFID pocket to provide space for an RFID chip for digital Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) management.
