Rock Fall launch New Foundry Boots; RF6000 Phoenix and RF7000 Vulcan
Friday, April 07, 2017
Rock Fall have launched two new styles made to the EN ISO 20349:2010 standard. The Phoenix and Vulcan boots follow the usual Rock Fall design features that make them comfortable from the first wear and highly durable even in harsh environments.
These features include the FORCE10® Solid Nitrile Rubber outsole, which is resistant to 300°C and has an abrasion resistance 86% higher than the European Standard.
They have also used Coats Industrial threads for stitching and leather that are flame and abrasion resistant.
The boots also have an enhanced comfort Ortholite® footbed, which is used by major sports brands in their running footwear.
The boots are already out on trial with a number of the major UK foundry operators and Rock Fall are keen to expand on this to improve occupational health and safety in the UKs thriving heavy industries sector.
