The Minemaster Metguard combo offers safety, comfort & reduced footwear costs for the mining industry.
Tropical Safety and Identification will soon launch the Bata Minemaster & Metguard as the most complete cost effective underground mining boot available in Australia.
Tropical Safety has supported trials in The Bowen Basin at selected underground mines. The resulting feedback has been instrumental in developing this new safety footwear for underground mining operations.
The features of the New Mine Master include approx 400mm of protection, ‘quick laces’ for ease of removal, a steel midsole for penetration resistance, a wear cap for those harsh longwall area’s, ankle support lacing, reflective tab for extra visibility around conveyors & a pull tab for ease of pulling on the boot.
TSI Queensland Pty Ltd (Tropical Safety And Identification) is offering a package including the Metguard in conjunction with The Minemaster.
The Metguard, an external metatarsal guard, has been designed to provide the extra comfort of a work boot without having an uncomfortable internal metatarsal guard. Easy to fit - the KangaTuff MetGuard is simply attached to the top of steel cap footwear and secured with existing laces.
It is designed and tested to compliment steel cap footwear and to maintain the footwear’s own safety standards. The Metguard has been tested to conform with stringent worldwide safety standards for metatarsal impact.
The lip of the MetGuard sits on top of the steel cap at load point, providing supplementary protection for the entire Metatarsal region. Suitable for use in all workplaces and industries, the Kanga Tuff MetGuard is designed to protect the worker’s upper foot from damaging impact and other crushing loads, by deflecting the impact of falling loads and by spreading the crush and impact load.
Kanga Tuff MetGuard is suitable for all safety shoes and boots and has optional attachment straps to secure non-lacing footwear. Tropical Safety And Identification expects the Minemaster & Metguard combo to move from successful trial to wide spread use rapidly.
