Save your knees


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™ positioning system.

For example, our advanced 9110 kneepads feature a hard-wearing outside and softer inside, combining efficient pressure distribution and protection against penetrations with maximum comfort.

Save your kneesThe 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.


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.

So if you want to look after your knees – wear Snickers Workwear trousers and you can rely on patented KneeGuard™ protection that follows your every move.


This standard encompasses the size, force distribution, penetration resistance and user testing of kneepads.

Snickers Workwear kneepads are designated and certified together with all Snickers Workwear knee pocket trousers according to EN14404;2010, Type 2.

The kneepads are not certified as stand alone product and may not be used for otherbranded trousers.

Type 2, Level 1.

Reliable knee protection for craftsmen with a mobile working environment that involves regular kneeling to perform their job. Designed to protect the knees from pebbles, nails and other small objects up to 1 cm on hard and flat surfaces.

Type 2, Level 0.

Effective knee protection for craftsmen who occasionally need to work on their knees indoors. Designed to protect the knees on flat hard surfaces.


Hard-working craftsmen put more pressure on their knees than many top athletes have to endure. 

It’s the reason why Snickers Workwear invest huge effort in developing the most advanced knee protection possible. Our cutting-edge kneepads feature D3O® technology, providing superior impact protection and shock absorption. Louise Wilson from British company D3O® explains how.

”D3O® is a unique technology, allowing us to create smart and active materials that react differently depending on the impact. The easiest way to explain it is that the molecules in the material flow with you as you move, but on shock they lock together to absorb the impact energy. This means we can provide a unique combination of comfort and flexibility with extreme protection when it really counts.”

D3O® technology can be found in a wide spectrum of body-protection products, ranging from motorcycling and extreme-sports gear and footwear to defence and law enforcement products. Snickers Workwear is the only workwear brand licensed to use D3O® materials.

“We cooperate with brands that are leaders in their field, and Snickers Workwear lead the development of advanced workwear with superior knee protection,” says Louise Wilson. Today the two companies work closely together to develop new applications featuring D3O® technology, with the aim of providing professional craftsmen with a wider range of comfortable and reliable body protection at work.

“I think we’ll start to see a lot of solutions in personal protection equipment become similar to those we have in the sphere of extreme sports, for example when it comes to protecting your head, neck, elbows and hands,” says Louise Wilson from D3O®.
