Metatarsal and lace protector

The STLFLX MetGUARDZ Metatarsal and Lace Protectors by Swenco Limited deflect and disperse the impact of falling loads. Suitable for most types of safety footwear, MetGUARDZ are secured using existing laces and the straps provided. The patent-pending hinged lacing system makes them easy to take on and off.

MetGUARDZ protectors are recommended for workers in construction and shipyards as well as mining, agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, handling and transportation. According to Swenco, the protectors are also an economical solution for visitors, temporary workers, clerical staff and sales people anywhere metatarsal protection is recommended or required.

MetGUARDZ meet or exceed both CSA and ASTM metatarsal impact performance criteria; are resistant to slag, acid, alkalis, fuel oil and high and low temperatures; are transferable among users; and provide protection from sparks and dirt, prolonging the life of boots and laces.
