For the first time, the brand will have a dedicated website aimed at end-users. This will allow individuals the freedom to select the protective footwear of their choice and checkout ‘with ease’. Aimont is said to be well-known for its broad range of styles that cater for many core UK industry sectors, including: building and construction; warehouse and logistics; and the food industry. Aimont says it prides itself on the safety integrity of its products, which gives peace of mind to individuals looking to purchase and obtain their own safety shoe. In the Aimont range, Vigorex features a new Infinergy sole. This technology was developed specifically for the sports industry, but has now been introduced into safety footwear. Khurram Akhtar, director of sales and products at Supertouch, said: “Given the rapid growth in independent traders, and the shift For many workers who are required to wear safety eyewear, the issue of fogging can be frustrating and dangerous. Should this occur in a high-risk situation, such as those involving hazardous chemicals or heavy industrial machinery, poor visibility or impaired sight could have potentially catastrophic implications. PPE specialist, Supertouch, in partnership with Pyramex, is now stocking safety eyewear featuring the H2MAX anti-fog coating. Providing clearer vision, the H2MAX coating is said to tackle this risk and prevent fogging for up to 30 times longer than its competitors. When placed 40cm away from heat steam, the H2MAX coating reportedly resists clouding for up to an hour, while other anti-fog lenses on the market are said to do so in less than two minutes. Unlike other safety eyewear, the H2MAX coating is reportedly made from non-hazardous components, and is able to withstand repeated cleaning without losing adhesion. Khurram Akhtar, director of sales and products at Supertouch, towards zero-hours contracts, there is a greater demand for customers wanting to purchase their own shoes. Aimont is a trusted brand in the UK, and so we wanted to offer our UK customer base the chance to purchase Aimont footwear direct. “We are strong believers that safety needn’t be at the detriment of durable and, indeed, comfortable footwear. Recognising this, the new website will enable customers to specify their own Aimont shoes, without compromising on style, safety or quality.” www.aimont.co.uk said: “Fogging is one of the biggest frustrations with safety eyewear, as well as being linked to non-compliance too. The H2MAX coating will help to tackle this issue. “The H2MAX coating is the result of extensive testing and research, and not only ensures maximum clarity, but also adds an extra layer of protection to the lens as it is abrasion, chemical and UV-resistant.” All H2MAX lenses have been certified to EN166 K&N standard. www.supertouch.com
