Hard-working craftsmen and craftswomen put more pressure on their knees than many top-athletes. The risk of knee injuries is therefore far higher among trade professionals than other occupations. By changing kneepads frequently, injuries and chronic pain can be avoided.
KNEEGUARD™ AND KNEEGUARD PRO
Efficient kneepads that stay firmly in position are crucial for reliable knee protection. That is exactly what you get with the patented Snickers Workwear KneeGuard™ and KneeGuard Pro positioning systems.
They allow you to adjust the specially designed kneepads at different heights to ensure correct positioning for maximum protection. The KneeGuard Pro system also features expansion pleats above the knees, ensuring superior protection, comfort and durability.
The unique kneepad pocket design on all our trousers features special seams, allowing you to adjust our specially designed kneepads in different positions to ensure superior knee protection.
The unique design also makes the kneepads extremely flexible when you walk, yet they close around your knees when you kneel down. In addition they feature high sides that prevent your knees from sliding off the kneepads.
Kneeguard Pro - how does it work?
A pair of Snickers Workwear trousers have many smart functional features. One of them is the built-in KneeGuard Pro system, ensuring correct positioning of the kneepad for maximum protection and comfort.

- Expansion pleats above the knees for extra comfort and flexibility.
- Six bartacks keep the pad in place, two for height and four for centring.
- The kneepad can be altered between two heights, ensuring optimal ergonomics gain for different body types.

HOW TO PICK THE PERFECT KNEEPAD
Pick the perfect kneepad
Do you kneel down occasionally or do you spend a lot of time working on your knees? Perhaps you kneel and stand up many times a day? Choose the kneepad that best suits your working situation.
When is it time to change your kneepads?
It's time to change to new kneepads when they don’t recover when you put them under pressure. Make it a habit to always inspect your kneepads while your trousers are being washed!
A good rule of thumb to follow is also to never re-use a pair of kneepads in a new pair of trousers.
Choose the right kneepad
No matter if you work on your knees on daily basis or now and then you should always wear knee protection when kneeling.
