Safety footwear: Skellerup USA introduces the Quatro Dielectric Safety Boot for linemen and utility workers in the U.S. To celebrate, Skellerup is giving away five free pairs of boots! To enter, linemen and utility workers can visit Quatro Safety Boots’ social media pages and like and share select posts. The contest ends January 31, 2017, and the winners will be chosen at random.

Working on the line is about to get a lot more comfortable for utility workers across the United States, thanks to a 100-year-old New Zealand footwear company. Quatro® Dielectric Safety Boots is now stepping up its presence in the U.S., especially for electrical workers, according to Paul Randall, Manager of Skellerup Footwear USA. Skellerup Industries, headquartered in Christchurch, New Zealand, provides hand-built rubber footwear for workers in the mining, construction and agricultural industries.
Discover these boots first-hand by finding Quatro Dielectric Safety Boots on social media and entering to win a free pair! Participants can share specified giveaway posts on Facebook, retweet on Twitter or regram on Instagram to enter a drawing for a free pair. Giveaway ends on January 31, 2016, and five winners will be chosen.

“Miners work in some of the toughest conditions known to man,” said Randall. “We’ve taken our safety boot experience in the mining industry and applied it for use in the electric utility industry. Quatro Dielectric Safety Boots are backed by more than 75 years of manufacturing experience for optimum performance under a range of environmental conditions.”

Quatro Dielectric Safety Boots are engineered to provide outstanding traction and support on all kinds of terrain. Features include ankle-locking design, SureGrip-360 outsole, extra wide waist bar with built-in ladder grips, full Nitrile rubber outsole resistant to oil, heat and chemicals, and a wide-fit steel toe cap. Fully waterproof, they feature yellow uppers that allow for easier visual identification and in-service inspection. Every boot is tested after being manufactured at 20kV for 3 minutes in water, and are also arc flash protected.

But the real story, according to Randall, is comfort. “Quatro Boots are designed to be both safe and comfortable,” he said. “Insulating layers offer electrical protection over the full boot, but the quick-drying liner inside keeps feet dry. They are seriously comfortable utility boots.”
