Oliver releases new range of safety footwear
The series is the company’s lightest ever AT 55 footwear release and is suitable for worksite conditions where lightweight comfort with heavyweight safety protection is required.
The new deeper tread profile and self-cleaning design creates stronger grip and durability in harsh terrain.
The AT 55 Dual Density Polyurethane and Rubber sole combines a shock absorbing low density polyurethane midsole with the hard wearing rubber outer sole. Now, the softer midsole core extends into the cleat providing cushioning that absorbs the shock of rough workplaces.
The sole is also heat resistant to 300°C and exceeds all non-slip resistant requirements under AS/NZS and international standards.
Premium wearer comfort features included in the new range include the COOLstep moisture wicking lining that absorbs and disperses moisture across the boot for quicker drying. This lining is also treated with a natural anti-microbial solution that controls bacteria that create odour, stains and product deterioration for the life of the product.
The COMFORTcushion Impact Absorption System offers a combination of cellular urethane and PORON¹ performance cushioning to protect the heel and ball of the foot by superior cushioning and shock absorption. This results in reduced foot, leg, and lower back fatigue.
The SOFTstride comfort system works to soften and absorb the impact on the foot after each stride. A layer of open cell low density urethane foam built into the insole contours to the individual foot shape for the ultimate in comfort and support, especially where long hours on the job may be common.
The NANOliteTechnology has a gently raised surface of the insole that massages your feet as you walk, promoting greater blood flow to help reduce fatigue. The perforated foam air control layer also enhances air circulation.
With the NATUREform steel toe cap – with its wider shape and padded latex liner – toe comfort is assured without them being in contact with the cap. All styles with these caps are licensed to all AS/NZS and International safety standards.
Oliver’s new HEELguard is designed with padded comfort to aid stability and protect against impact and roll over hazards. While the TECtuff toe bumper features in all styles to protect against scuffing the front end of the boots.
Three AT style choices, AT 55-332Z, AT 55 345Z and AT 55-385, also offer quick release zippers for ease of donning and doffing.
All AT 55 styles use water resistant nubuck and full grain leather uppers, while stitching is enhanced with Kevlar thread on critical wear seams for maximum abrasion and chemical resistance.
The two AT 55-336 and AT 55- 346 styles with metatarsal protection use the PORON XRD that is comfortable, flexible and lightweight without rigid, bulky or constricting padding. As a high performance molecular protection, it is also a unique protective shield that absorbs up to 90 per cent of the most intense force.
Both AT55 Metatarsal styles also feature Q-Flex non-metallic insole protection against penetration by sharps over the entire foot surface while ensuring flexibility and comfort.
