To put an end to this unnecessary drain on the country's precious foreign exchange, at Liberty, India's largest manufacturer of PU footwear and pioneer of PU Technology in the Indian market, took the initiative to develop an all-terrain professional gear for the feet as per Euro Safety Norms (EN-345) & IS 15298 2002 (Part I &II). The footwear was tested and certified by PFI Pirmaseans of Germany and approved by Footwear Design and Development Institute, Government of India.
Aptly called Warrior, for the way it conquered the hazards of all terrains, it was created using our patented Humantech process and bringing together the best from around the world.
Complete toe protection from heavy falling objects is provided by the German ESJOT alloy toe caps. There is plenty of toe room and so there is no discomfort or fatigue even after long hours of use. The toe caps are tested for energy level of 200 joules.
We have used Italian antistatic insole of 2mm that protects the feet from electric currents ranging between 100 KG Ohms and 1000 Mega Ohms by ensuring static charges developed due to friction between the foot and the leather get automatically discharged to the earth.
The outsole comes in two colors and is made of dual density polyurethane (soft mid sole of 0.45 GMS/CC and outsole of 1-1.20 GM/CC) that makes it extra light, flexible and durable. It is hard (60-65 Shore A), antistatic as well as oil, water, acid, alcohol and abrasion resistant.
On specific request, a steel insole is provided to protect the feet from sharp objects like nails, etc.
Warrior Professional Gear, molded in 2 different styles–low neck and high neck (ankle) designs, are today widely used by people in different areas of activity…in airports, chemical industry, construction business, defence services, heavy engineering, hotels, mining and railways among others.
It was a chest-puffing moment when Warrior having done its detailed market survey & design R&D, anticipated the growing workforce of ladies in the Indian Industry and introduced Warrior Ladies Safety Shoe almost two years ago. Today, we are more than proud to be the only brand manufacturing Ladies Safety Shoe for the Indian Industry. India Warrior Professional Gear has acquired a sound footing even in the overseas market.
Liberty has a long way to go. And therefore is in the process of developing safety footwear like, introduction of Nitrile PVC soled Safety Shoe, for new spheres of activity.
