Resilient Defender: Control Public Order Boots with D3O®
Public order boot ‘Control’ to standard BS7971-5: 2016 features a made to order option of ‘intelligent’D3O metatarsal protection. The D3O material is implemented in the lining of the boot so that in standard conditions,the molecules flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact, they lock together to absorb impact energy and reduce the force transmitted. The wearer will feel the D3O material flexing and moving when walking and running yet it will provide the optimum protection against kicks and heavy objects being thrown at them. A cut resistant lining to protect from missiles and other sharp objects, plus a nail proof textile midsole encases the foot for full protection. Added to this is a flame resistant Dual Density Rubber Sole injected onto the uppers for outstanding bond strength and, versus other public order boots with PU/Rubber boots on the market, withstands greater instances of heat (300°C). The combination of protective features including fire retardant lace and thread, and downward facing seams for petrol run off, has been proven to successfully protect officers in the Public Order role and is currently being used by various Police forces and prisons around the UK.
