Technology

Our passion for high quality boots and shoes, brings a combination of manufacturing experience and innovative design to all the footwear we make. We use a wide variety of constructions in our ranges depending on the style and purpose of the boots. From traditional constructions like Goodyear Welted to modern day light weight cement lasted, all of our footwear is designed and built to last.

Our commitment to ongoing research and development ensures that we will continue to supply products that exceed the expectations of our customers and comply with all relevant safety standards. The production facilities that we work with use modern manufacturing techniques and our on-site laboratory based at our head office in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire is furnished with state-of-the-art testing equipment including:

  • Impact test machine capable of achieving EN ISO 20345:2011 200J impact energy.

  • A universal compression and tensile test machine with 3 load cells. This is suitable for sole bond strength, tear, tensile and all manner of similar test. It is also capable of achieving EN ISO 20345:2011 compression resistance 15kN. We have the addition of a custom designed Compression cage for Nail penetration resistance testing of both footwear and materials.

  • Electrical resistance testing of antistatic and conductive footwear (as received condition). This device is also able to achieve the ESD requirements in the as received state and during wear.

  • DIN outsole abrasion resistance testing. This device measures the volume loss to abrasion of a small sample of the sole compound. When combined with the tear strength and sole bond capabilities above this can give a good indication of the consistency, suitability and wear life of the sole.

Our dedication is further emphasised by the collaboration agreement we have embarked upon with Sheffield University, with one of its Polymer Chemists now working for the business.
