Innovation In Safety Footwear
Working in the harshest conditions demands safety footwear that is constructed using components that prolong the longevity of the boots and keep the wearer safe from the external elements they are exposed to.
Rock Fall UK’s management team travels the globe researching new components and identifying new materials that can be used to enhance the life of safety footwear and further protect the wearer in the harshest conditions. From footwear developed using R-Ten Abrasion resistant thread to Activ-Step Anti-Fatigue Footbeds – Rock Fall UK are constantly bringing innovations to the safety footwear market.

Working with household names and loyal partners around the world, we have built a network of trusted distributors, and therefore don’t offer the opportunity to buy directly from us. However, if you’re interested in purchasing something you see on the site, just head over to the Stockists page for more details.
What We're Good At
Experts in waterproof and fully non-metallic safety footwear, put together using pioneering components that ensure the wearer stays protected in the most demanding conditions. From, telephone masts 15m above ground to the underground rail network 100m below ground, offshore oil platforms to well below freezing cold stores, we focus on innovation in safety footwear.
Here at Rock Fall, we work with partners all around the world to provide you with the greatest quality footwear possible. Due to these affiliations, we have ensured that we have partnered with ethical factories that have achieved and attained the highest standards to ensure our social responsibilities are met.
Our factories are BSCI participants, which means they meet the high standards set out by the Foreign Trade Association to improve working conditions in the global supply chain.
The BSCI and its partners share a common code of conduct, and through a collective commitment, the participants are achieving their goal of improving relationships in fair working conditions, all over the world.

Rock Fall’s factories are also certified to SA8000® standard, which is one of the world’s first auditable social standards developed by the SAI.
The standard ensures that we only employ, and engage with workers, in line with the policies that protect human rights. We are required to implement detailed management and quality structures to stay in line with the certification, and we are reviewed on a frequent basis to stay up-to-date.

Testing & Certification
We go the extra mile to give our products the leading edge when it comes to protective footwear. To do this, we partner with Intertek, licensed by the BIS, to test our products in rigorous environments. We are also members of Intertek’s Due Diligence Programme ensuring that every batch of footwear is rigorously tested prior to being dispatched from our UK warehouse.
We have developed some great technologies through our partnership with Intertek, including our FORCE10® Advanced Scuff Cap Technology which is the most durable scuff cap on the market, abrasion tested using sandpaper. Whereas most manufactures fail to test their components, Rock Fall go that extra mile and test each component well beyond the basic requirements.
