BBZ8000 - a watershed moment for waterproof safety boots
The new generation neoprene/rubber EN/UKCA S5 Safety Boot
Delivery of two new colourways is scheduled to commence in December. Keep an eye here for more updates.
We always knew that BBZ6000 would be a hard act to follow but we also knew that by continually researching and developing new ideas we could produce an even better product. One with immense visual impact and bristling with innovation. One which would pick up on the amazing success of BBZ6000 and take the EN S5 neoprene/rubber safety boot concept which we pioneered in 2008 on to new horizons.
BBZ8000 uses a completely different assembly process from its older brother, BBZ6000 plus a host of new safety features and lightweight components. In addition it's 360º reflective, non-metallic and has built in EN certified ankle impact protection (AN) and Achilles support.
BBZ8000 features a super lightweight nano safety toecap, a lightweight anti-penetration midsole and a weight saving sole bonding process. It's comparable in weight to its moulded polyurethane competitors and just like its older brother it fits like a glove, not like a tube.
BBZ8000 is a great all new product from the soles upwards so it is vital that the soles incorporate the very latest tread design techniques to maximise grip, extend life and reduce weight. K12 does all of these plus it comes with SRC maximum anti-slip certification and is non-marking.
