While PVC gumboots are a popular choice because they are economical, dependable and provide protection against a wide range of chemicals, Wayne’s range of polyurethane (PU) gumboots are fast becoming a strong contender in the marketplace – and with good reason.
Our range of PU gumboots are designed according to the latest international trends, and are proven to last up to 3 times longer than PVC boots. This is backed by our rigorous testing methods. Our PU gumboots are flex tested to over 900 000 flexes with no significant deterioration – that equates to over 900 000 steps, or over 720km.
We have designed our PU boots to complement and enhance the inherent benefits of the materials. The cross-link structure gives the boots their strength, while adding more flex points for unrivalled durability and comfort. Vertically-injected air pockets increase the lightweight and thermal resistance properties, delivering increased comfort without compromising on strength or durability.
What results is a boot that is extremely resistant to tears and abrasions, while boasting increased resistance to oils, fats, blood, chemicals, dirt and water.
Pure Max – Built for maximum protection in hazardous environment
The Pure Max has been designed for industries and environments that demand uncompromised and dependable protection, such as mining, agriculture and forestry, construction and more.
A multi-stage curation results in a protective ‘outer skin’ for resistance against chemicals, dirt, oil and water, while a unique sole design sees self-cleaning functionality and SRC-rated slip resistance, as well as anti-static features. Moisture wicking in the lining and footbed expel moisture away from the foot for added comfort and hygiene, boosted by anti-microbial treatment of the footbed. And to ensure all-day comfort, each Pure Max boot comes with a unique footbed with advanced cushioning technology that moulds and shapes to the contours of the foot.
