Introducing Ibex STS

Joining our range of waterproof products we now have the Ibex STS. This is based on the popular Otter STS, with a scuff cap for that added protection and durability.

Seated on the SRC slip resistant STS sole unit, this tough product will keep your feet safe and dry.

WHAT SAFETY FEATURES DOES THE NEW V1801 IBEX STS CONTAIN?

With a composite toecap and midsole, the IBEX STS provides protection from falling objects and underfoot penetration from sharps, while remaining lightweight, reducing wearer fatigue. With an SRC slip rating, the safety boot offers the highest levels of slip resistance. It also meets the high spec S3 WR safety standard, packing in the following features and making it perfectly suited to construction and engineering, as well as many other industries: 

  • Anti-static
  • Heat resistant outsole to 150°
  • Composite toecap
  • Composite midsole
  • SRC slip rating
  • Waterproof and breathable membrane

WHAT OTHER FEATURES DOES THIS WATERPROOF BOOT CONTAIN?

Like the Otter boot, the Ibex is incredibly lightweight and features an ergonomic top band for comfort when driving.

The waterproof leather upper features a tough scuff cap and a non-snagging eyelet system for safety. The heel pull tab makes it easy to get on, and an anti-slip heel lining keeps your foot securely in place. 

We have worked hard to make this an incredibly comfortable safety boot. By developing a brand new extreme comfort shape to create the boot around; we have buried a shock-absorbing heel pod within the sole, reducing impact on your knees and back.

The boot benefits from the Dual Comfort shock absorbing footbed. With rebound foam, the insole provides full foot cushioning and shock resistance.

But the biggest feature has got to be the new STS sole - your only contact with the ground and your best control to prevent slipping over in the workplace. 

THE NEW STS SOLE

SRC compliant, the STS is modelled on tractor tyre technology. The large lug pattern provides excellent braking and forward traction on loose surfaces, whilst the large channels are angled to prevent clogging and to ensure a self-cleaning sole.

Ladders are common-place in many industries. Falls from height account for more than a quarter of all fatal injuries in the workplace. This is why the STS has a deep ladder grip, that complies with Firefighter boots standards, which is over and above safety boot requirements. This provides you with optimum grip and safety. These ladder grips are the first in the industry to meet the firefighter standard EN15090:2012. 

What's more, slips are most likely to happen when the heel is placed down to make a new step. That's why we have designed the heel strike at 7°, the angle at which most slips occur. Angled splines provide increased contact with the ground, effortlessly cutting through water or dirt at every step. This ensures grip and braking performance, keeping wearers firm-footed.   

PEACE OF MIND
