PPE - July 25, 2013 - 0 comments

Best Ever Slip Resistance

Footwear manufacturer Goliath Footwear has developed a new super slip resistant range of safety trainersThe ‘Supertrax’ range has been designed with a tri-density sole (Rubber, PU and TPU) and claims to offer the best ever slip resistance for those working in food processing, janitorial and pharmaceutical industries. 

In recent slip resistance tests, the Supertrax sole had up to twice the slip resistance specified by the European Standard and is categorised by the Health and Safety Executive in the lowest slip risk category.

Trendy ‘leisure-look’

The Supertrax styles offer a more contemporary ‘skater’ look to take into account the increasing trend for ‘leisure-look’ workplace footwear.  Lead style ‘Franklin’ incorporates a steel toe cap plus a L-Protection® nail-proof textile midsole, additional stitching design features and has water resistant black leather. The range includes safety styles with microfibre uppers in black and white versions and a soft toe option which is suitable for low risk environments.


Slips One Of The Most Common Hazards

Steve Hall, Sales and Marketing Director for Goliath Footwear says ‘Slips in the workplace are one of the most common hazards, and we have developed a stylish product range to meet the demand for better protection.  The tread pattern is designed for maximum traction with many leading edges, maximum ground contact and with a 1mm protruding rubber for liquid run off.  The tests show this is one of the best performing sole units on the market.’


World leading team

This is a further advancement for the Goliath Footwear team who lead the world in the production of DDR injected sole technology which has revolutionised footwear for the heavy industrial and emergency services sector.

The range is now available through Personal Protective Equipment distributors in the UK and Europe.
