Honeywell has expanded its highly popular Otter Premium Protect slip resistant safety footwear line to include two new styles designed specifically for women. The company has also introduced smaller sizes suitable for workers in the utilities, mechanical engineering, construction, electronic manufacturing transport, logistics and oil and gas sectors.
“Honeywell’s Otter Premium Protect footwear has been hugely successful thanks to the combination of a high performance slip resistant PU Nitrile sole and an Ortholite® insole system that allows the wearer to modify the space inside the footwear for a perfect fit for their own individual needs,” said Dennis Quensel, product manager at Honeywell Safety Products. “Our customers said they wanted to make these major benefits more widely available to all of their staff and, in particular, to women who require smaller sizes, which is what this range extension now delivers with sizes starting at 36 going through to 48.”
The two new designs complement the existing products in the SRC approved Otter Premium Protect range that all benefit from high slip resistance performance that far exceeds the EN test for slip resistance.
The PU/Nitrile sole unit is also cut-resistant, protects against many acids and oils, is temperature resistant up to 300° C (short contact time) and has been designed with a self-cleaning tread.
Comfort is further enhanced through the shock absorbing, light-density midsole and a highly breathable textile lining, which meets the Oeko-Tex® 100 certification standards.
The Otter Premium Protect range is also Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) approved, particularly important for those working in the electronic manufacturing sector, preventing electrostatic charge and discharge in addition to having products across the range that are Safety Class S1, S2 and S3 certified.
