Why Choose Workmaster™ Boots?

How are they made?

Workmaster™ boots are manufactured at our automated state of the art footwear factory based in Crawley (in the United Kingdom). The injection moulding manufacturing process guarantees a seamless, leak-free construction. This modern high-volume production facility enables the manufacture of different types and styles of boots within the same operating run, giving the flexibility to meet rapidly changing market demands.

With an in-house UKAS accredited materials testing laboratory we are able to perform a range of chemical permeation and physical testing to European, American and international standards. We have extensive chemical permeation data for our Hazmax™ boots, but if you need data for a different chemical (or boot) please get in touch.

All our boots are REACH compliant and both boots and insoles are machine washable at up to 40℃ with a shelf life in excess of 10 years.

Slip Resistance and Vulcanised Rubber Soles

Over 30% of industrial accidents result from slips, trips and falls - as Workmaster boots are used in an environment where there are liquids present, a slip resistant sole is crucial, which is why we fit a high-performance vulcanised rubber sole to our boots. This provides a number of important benefits:

  • Slip resistance is twice that required by EN 13287 SRA and SATRA TM144 standards
  • Grip is 30% better than with a conventional safety boot sole
  • Wear resistance is two to three times that of conventional soles
  • The sole is resistant to fuel and oil
  • Greater cut resistance than conventional soles
  • Resistant to hot contact for 60 seconds at 300℃
  • Cold insulation
