Welcome to Nierhaus

Our traditional business was founded in 1932 in the Ruhrgebiet in Germany and was one of the first companies to develop and manufacture knee-protectors.

As a responsible distributor of professional knee-protection in mining applications, we helped to develop the Mining Standard DIN 23311 in cooperation with the Standard Committee Mining in 1953. Accordingly, optimal protection for the user as well the high quality standard for knee-protectors were set in stone for us.

Naturally the requirements of the new European standard DIN EN 14404 from the year 2005 have been accounted for, while preserving the old quality standards.

With the registered trademark WohltatTM, our products still stand for high quality and robust knee-protectors for a spectrum of different users, which has grown wider over the decades. They provide effective and durable protection for the knees in all types of kneeling work.

What began with the production of knee-protectors for mining applications, today represents a business which develops and produces knee-protectors for protection and safety in all manual labour.
