Swenco Limited and Redbacks Cushioning have agreed to co-brand Redbacks kneepads with Swenco’s Steel-Flex label in North America. The knee pads will be available this fall at select retailers and industrial distributors.
Redbacks builds the kneepads on a flexible, honeycombed structure instead of foam, according to the company. The honeycomb holds a “leaf-spring” membrane that Redbacks developed to dissipate pressure, add comfort and reduce the risk of long-term harm to the knee joint.
Waterproof, machine-washable and built for comfort, Redbacks knee pads come in two formats: one that straps over the knee, and one that slips into knee pockets of specially designed workwear.
