Closing the Loop

Innovation, a commonly used word but what does it mean?

“Something new or different”

It’s been at the heart of the Rock Fall business since 1987. Let’s do something new or different.

It’s helped us create a range of industry defining safety footwear.

So What's Next?

As Rock Fall continues to develop its core products it’s important that we expand on the work we’ve done.

Our waterproof membranes are industry leading thanks to our work with Sympatex®
Our cold temperature boots are the highest specification thanks to our work with 3M
Our construction boots are the most widely specified thanks to our work with FORCE10®

We’ve decided to work with Activ-Step® to develop the next generation of workplace solutions that include enhanced comfort materials, components and accessories.


Activ-Step® Footscan System

The Activ-Step® Footscan System is versatile service solution for wearers.

The system aligns and scans your feet using an innovative self-service interface. The user can follow the onscreen prompts to measure their feet with the following steps:

1) Stepping on the machine and setting their gender.

2) Aligning their feet using the onscreen prompt and adjusting the alignment of their knees.

3) Standing still whilst the machine scans and provides readings.

Once the reading is complete, the system will display the users foot size in a UK, EU and US. The unit will also provide a recommendation of which of the Activ-Step® 3Feet footbeds are most appropriate for the wearer.

Activ-Step® 3Feet

The unit works by taking 1000s of photographs of the underside of the wearers feet. The system then builds and analyses a digital 3D profile to make a recommendation. Based on this analysis the system will select either a low, medium or high arch support.

This can aid Plantar fasciitis, Fatigue, Achilles tendonitis, Pronation/supination instabilities and Back and knee pain. The footbeds have been specifically designed for industrial workplaces, and include anti-static stitching and tape for product assurance purposes.
