uvex: A Year of Innovation

uvex showcase their work of 2017

Digital personal protective equipment: uvex techware

Integrating digital functions into personal protective equipment (PPE) opens up unprecedented opportunities to protect people. With uvex techware, vulnerable areas from head to toe can be equipped with sensors and actuators. By interconnecting PPE, it is possible to achieve meta functions that react as well as interact and communicate with the wearer depending on the situation at hand.

The mega trend of digital transformation now offers completely new product concepts in the field of personal protective equipment, too; these concepts can be used to successfully face the extensive level of change in the industrial sector. “New digital technologies enable existing safety functions to be enhanced in ways not possible until now as well as unique approaches to ensuring people's protection and physical comfort”, explains Stefan Brück, CEO of the uvex safety group. The uvex safety group therefore established the “Digital Business Innovation” division for the development of digital product system uvex techware. Together with highly skilled technology partners and key clients, the first product prototypes and applications have been developed, offering approaches for tailored solutions on the basis of realistic case examples.

uvex suXXeed – workwear meets streetwear

The new uvex suXXeed workwear collection gets everything spot on: well thought-out functionality, sporty design, exciting colour contrasts, unusual material combinations and a cut that fits like a glove. The result looks equally good on men and women. Cool workwear in streetwear design. Ideal for industry and trade.

uvex suXXeed workwear casually follows every assignment and every movement. Moisture-regulating materials, 4waystretch elements and a cut that keeps the waistband of the jacket in place even when you raise your arms. That is what we mean by perfect fit – and that's our goal.
