Working in kneeling positions is a great strain on the body and on your knees in particular. Therefore, it is important to use the right kind of knee protection that fits optimally on your knees. By combining knee protection certified according to EN 14404 with trousers with an ergonomic fit, you are guaranteed the best protection throughout your working day.

EN 14404 is a European standard which was developed to establish requirements for kneepads in order to best protect the user’s knees. Kneepads are tested on the basis of different requirements, such as impact absorption, their ability to distribute pressure over the entire surface while kneeling as well as their ability to prevent sharp or pointed objects from penetrating the material.
In order to achieve protection in accordance with the EN 14404 standard, you must use MASCOT® kneepads in the workwear trousers for which they are certified. Certification is only achieved by combining the right kneepads with the right trousers. MASCOT® kneepads are certified in accordance with EN 14404, Type 2, Class 1, which refers to kneepads that are attached to the trousers using the accompanying pockets and which are suitable for work in kneeling positions. They help provide the best protection during a long working day in a kneeling position. MASCOT® kneepads can also be shortened in order to fit all types of trousers while still retaining their EN 14404 certification.
Requirements set out in EN 14404 are met when using MASCOT kneepads.
