During the Intersec Safety exhibition in Dubai, Director Richard Noon spoke to Health Safety and Security Review Middle East about the company's expansion into the UAE markets, bringing specialist safety footwear, combining premium quality and great value for money.
“We decided to focus on long-term, high specification developments in safety footwear based on extensive market research and this has proved instrumental in launching several industry defining and world first products,” he said, speaking about the company's growth of its footprint worldwide, with new supply agreements in the UAE, Philippines, China and Singapore.
In recent years, the company has diversified its range offering and the Rock Fall Worldwide range features styles for construction, utilities, nuclear and power generation and transmission, car manufacturing, aerospace and military.
Rock Fall has launched several new styles including a range of firefighting and extreme heat protection boots as well as electrical hazard boots with an insulating sole unit and the pioneering, world first, Arc Flash rated safety boots.

R-Ten, is a long-lasting sewing thread that increases the life of a pair of safety boots and is resistant to corrosive alkalis such as limestone or concrete. The use of Force10 outsoles that are made using a specially formulated nitrile rubber compound contributes towards significantly enhancing the lifespan of safety footwear.
