A multi-award winning second-generation family owned business, Rock Fall has positioned itself at the forefront of the safety footwear industry through world first innovations that provide solutions to the ever-changing demands of modern businesses.

Recognising a giant gap in the market for class leading, lightweight and comfortable conductive footwear Rock Fall have worked with the nuclear, defence and explosives industry to develop a range of styles for these sectors.

The range is currently being trialled by several blue-chip organisations in the defence sector.

Conductive footwear is used in potentially explosive atmospheres to manage the risk of uncontrolled static.

Commenting on the development, Richard Noon Director at Rock Fall said:

We are gaining a strong reputation for developing safety footwear that other manufacturers aren’t. Adding conductive styles to our range has been of high interest to us for a number of years. We now have an opportunity for mass production of these styles thanks to the momentum behind them in the sector.

This is designed for use in explosive atmospheres and developed alongside the Institute of Explosive Engineers, it is already being trialled and specified by several defence contractors and explosives manufacturers.
