Building on the huge success of its innovative, mix-and-match Tool Systems range, C.K tools – major supplier of quality tools for professional trades – has extended its 25-strong collection of ground-breaking vests, belts, bags and totes with the introduction of four functional and extremely durable sets of knee pads.
This high quality, professional range, comprises two premium sets of Gel knee pads, both tested according to EN14404 and considered true safety devices; whilst the two sets of Foam knee pads in C.K tools’ specialised range have been designed specifically for comfort whilst kneeling.
The innovative C.K Gel Extreme Knee Pads feature a unique ribbed gel cushion with an integral air cell for maximum comfort and a puncture resistant layer for increased protection. The rugged all-terrain design provides both durability and increased stability whilst working on uneven surfaces, whilst the detachable, heavy-duty cap makes these groundbreaking knee pads ideal for both internal and external applications.
Where freedom of movement on the job is essential, the C.K Gel FreeStyle Knee Pads will provide great flexibility. Practical memory foam cushions with an internal air cell keeps knees fully protected, whilst large, smooth swivel caps allow for easy movement taking the pain out of prolonged installation work.
The C.K Pro-Shell Knee Pads feature a rigid Nylon shell with a large flat surface for essential stability when working on uneven and rough surfaces, whilst durable foam pads, with soft, breathable inner lining ensure complete comfort. For added convenience, twin elasticised straps with hook and loop fasteners provide the best possible fit for individual needs.
To reduce discomfort whilst kneeling the C.K Pro-Foam Knee Pads offer soft, thick, breathable inner padding under an extremely durable foam pad. Ideal for most internal applications and light outdoor work such as gardening, these comfortable pads also feature adjustable straps with hook and loop fasteners for the perfect fit.
In answer to tradesmen’s ailing knees, C.K tools has developed this hard-wearing range of knee pads in an attempt to help reduce the number of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, which accounted for 9.3 million lost working days during 2008/2009, a significantly high proportion of which came from the construction industry .
These robust knee pads join the full C.K Tool System range, which has been designed to work together as a ‘mix and match’ package for tradesmen to create their own personally designed tool system to suit their individual requirements.
Vanessa Troupel, C.K tools brand manger commented: “We work closely with a dedicated team of professional tradesmen to better understand their everyday working requirements. Feedback revealed a need for a product to keep knees protected in all working environments whilst providing maximum comfort in use. And with such high numbers of tradesmen suffering from musculoskeletal disorders, especially in the knees, a suitable range of hardwearing and flexible knee pads was essential.
“The extension of our already popular Tool System range is further testimony to our continued efforts to improve on the quality and design of our products in order to meet the changing needs of our customers and our continuous efforts to innovate the market.”
