OutDry® is the innovative Italian technology for the waterproofing of footwear, gloves, backpacks and protective outdoor clothing. From 17 to 20 October, OutDry® will be participating in A+A, the international fair for health and safety at work, with new products in the sector.
OutDry® technology differs from the standard membranes on the market, as it uses a unique, patented lamination process to apply the membrane directly to the inner layer of the product. In this way, OutDry® ensures maximum protection from water and other agents and, simultaneously, excellent breathability.
OutDry® in industrial footwear
The structure of the OutDry® membrane, heat-sealed directly onto the upper, allows total insulation from water, and perfectly seals seams. In this way the waterproof barrier is moved from the inner lining to the outer, with the result that not only do the feet remain dry, but water stays entirely on the outside of the shoe, preventing unpleasant feelings of dampness. Furthermore, the complete absence of seam-sealing tape gives the surface of the shoe 100% breathability.
The application of this technology is particularly effective in several sectors. Various firms in the safety sector have adopted OutDry® technology for their footwear collections, choosing a solution that can enhance foot comfort during working hours.
SIXTON PEAK ORTLES model 30335-02L
Low-rise footwear designed for use in construction, carpentry, agriculture and gardening. This model from the Sixton Peak collection uses OutDry® technology, which ensures complete waterproofing and a high degree of breathability, making this a comfortable shoe even for long working hours. The membrane is laminated in direct contact with the suede upper and the microfibre inserts. The model also features a toecap of variable thickness, and a rubber rim. The expanded rubber sole is lightweight and comfortable, with a Vibram tread that's resistant to excessively high or low temperatures and also has anti-static properties. The footwear is certified EN ISO 20345:2011. Protection: S3 HRO WR HI SRC
