EXPLORE THE HIGH-LEVEL BENEFITS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY Application
The upper material is 40 percent lighter than leather, enabling police to respond fast to daily emergencies.
Police officers have to operate in a wide range of weather conditions, the upper's low water absorption construction allows for lasting lightness even when exposed to extreme wetness
The upper hardly absorbs any moisture from the outside even after extensive use or loss of the water repellent finish
The upper allows significantly faster drying time compared with conventional uppers for police footwear.
External moisture cannot penetrate and no moisture accumulates between the upper material and the waterproof inner bootie. This means a reduced conductive heat loss, ideal for long hours policing demonstrations in wet and cold conditions.
Designed for the harshest environments, police officers receive durable robust protection against mechanical impacts, even after months of wear in wet conditions.
Easy to clean and not requiring specific care products, this footwear, worn day to day, can be kept at optimal functionality for a long time with minimal effort.
GTX EG police boots provide flame protection according to DIN EN 15090. When exposed to an open flame for 10 seconds in accordance with DIN EN ISO 15025-A / DIN EN 15090 GTX EG boots do not show an afterflame.
The GORE-TEX lining technology makes this footwear durably waterproof, keeping officers feet completely dry.
Sweat vapour escapes easily providing comfort in high intensity operations.
Common chemicals cannot penetrate, offering additional protection.
Lasting lightweight and extreme robust police footwear.
Police officers have to operate in a wide range of situations and weather conditions. They need boots that offer reliable protection against mechanical impacts, common chemicals, flames, cold and wet. In the past, robust protection has often automatically been associated with heavier footwear and less comfort for the feet. A dilemma when boots were worn for hours in wet conditions. Now the new three layer Extraguard upper technology is paving the way for a new class of robust GORE-TEX Police footwear. This footwear is lightweight and also remains lightweight even when police officers have to stand in the rain for hours, when policing demonstrations for example. Lasting lightweight, highly breathable, quick to dry and extremely comfortable to wear this police footwear is ideal for focus in day-to-day operations.
