A new range of hardy ESCAPE and WELD GUARD industrial boots by BOC will be available at Gas and Gear stores over the coming spring season.
These durable boots are designed to take hard knocks and meet the highest Australian and New Zealand standards.
Fashion designers may have rediscovered boots this year on the catwalks of Europe, but for welders, solid, tough dependable boots have always been a vital accessory in hazardous environments.
The ESCAPE boots range features hardy slip-resistant soles that can take 300°C temperatures. Other features include steel toe caps as well as oil and acid-resistant construction.
These industrial safety boots come in black lace-up or dark brown slip-on models. The boots also have a defined heel to make it easier to climb ladders.
WELD GUARD leather boots are suitable for MMA, SMAW and MIG/MAG welding applications.
Similar to the ESCAPE range, WELD GUARD welding boots feature a sole that can resist temperatures up to 300°C. The steel toe-cap has been tested to withstand impacts of 200 joules and the steel mid sole resists penetration forces up to 1100 Newtons.
Boot sizes in both brands are available from 6 to 13.
