TSI Queensland Pty Ltd is soon launching the KangaTuff MetGuard at QME. This product is about to have massive positive impact on Underground Mining Safety Practices, Surface Mines and General Industry, says TSI Queensland.
The KangaTuff MetGuard is a revolutionary new Safety Footwear Attachment that does away with the need to wear expensive, uncomfortable, heavy and cumbersome metatarsal footwear.
Easy to fit, the Kanga Tuff MetGuard is simply attached to the top of steel cap footwear and secured with existing laces or straps. It is designed and tested to compliment steel cap footwear and to maintain the footwear's own safety standards. It has been tested to conform to stringent Australian and New Zealand safety footwear standards.
The lip of the MetGuard sits on top of the steel cap at load point, and provides supplementary protection for the entire Metatarsal region. The MetGuard is designed to protect the workers upper foot from damaging impact and other crushing loads, by deflecting the impact of falling loads and by spreading the crush and impact load.
MetGuard is suitable for use in all workplaces and industries including mining, construction, manufacturing, forestry, transport and storage, retail, trade and warehousing.
What makes the MetGuard so attractive is that it's practical, it's comfortable, easy to fit and simple to use, is lightweight, can be used with existing footwear and is transferable between user and footwear.
Kanga Tuff MetGuard fits all safety shoes and boots and has optional attachment straps to secure to non-lace up footwear and gumboots. Straps are also available in anti static and flame retardant materials. An aluminised MetGuard cover and Alumised Spat is available for heat sensitive areas.
MetGuard is fast becoming the preferred metatarsal protection because they are lighter, thinner and less obtrusive than other options available.
