Choosing Safety Boots

At Universal Textiles we sell a wide range of high quality work wear at affordable prices. Perfectly suited to work or personal use, our Safety Boots are protective, durable and comfortable, complying with the required safety regulations.  Here we take a look at the merits of a small selection of boots available.

The Portwest Steelite Protector Boot is a bestseller on our website due to its quality and exceptional price of just £14.24. The boot provides superb protection thanks to a 200 joule steel toecap, steel midsole and a slip resistant, energy absorbent heel. Made from split buffalo leather, this sturdy lace-up is a great safety boot.

Caterpillar are known for their thorough testing which ensures their boots are durable, safe and of the highest quality. This can be seen in the Caterpillar Dimen 6” Boot. The leather lace-up boot conforms to the ISO20345 Safety Footwear Standard with a safety category marking of SBSRC. The boot has toe protection of up to 200 joules impact and a nylon lining for comfort.

With many of the same qualities as the Caterpillar boot, the Timberland Split Rock Gaucho Boot has a safety category marking of S3-SRB. The boot has a water resistant upper as well as a penetration resistant midsole of up to 1100 newtons. Extra protection is provided by the rubber EVA sole unit, whilst the boot has speed lace hooks to provide an efficient fit.

The Jallatte JJV28 Boot conforms to the ISO20345 Safety Footwear Standard and has a side zip allowing both easy access and greater protection. It is made with ankle protection and a scuff cap. As well as being water resistant, having toe protection and a penetration resistant midsole, the sole of the boot is also resistant to high heat up to 300°C.

Other boots that come with high customer recommendations include the Amblers FS7 Mens Boot and the Dr Martens FS73 Boot. To view our full selection of Safety Boots, click here.
