SNG now stockists for leading workboot

SwanNet Gundry are pleased to announce that they have been appointed sole Irish agents for the marine sector for the world-renowned Techno Boot range.

Manufactured in Turkey, the Techno Thermo -50°C UltraGrip and the Techno -30°C Troya UltraGrip have revolutionised work footwear for even the most challenging of environments and naturally, due to the harsh conditions of the fishing and seafood sector, have become extremely popular with fishermen the world over.

The boot is resistant to oils, fats, organic solvents and chemicals. The UltraGrip SRC outsole offers superior safety in all conditions. The manufacturers believe that it is thanks to the best BASF polyurethane raw material that this is the world’s most comfortable thermo boot.

“Lightweight, strong, flexible and with a durability of up to four times longer compared to the traditional PVC and rubber boots. The superior durability offers important cost savings,” the Techno Boot company states, adding that the orthopaedic removable footbeds with arch support give the wearer the comfort needed during long work sessions and means no more heavy or tired legs after a hard day working.

For extremely cold and harsh working conditions the Techno Thermo -50°C UltraGrip (RRP €85.00) offers all the solid ruggedness of a solid work boot without compromising on the comfort of a cushioned interior sole and, for more general workwear but still with thermal protection to -30°C the Troya UltraGrip (RRP €55.00) is slightly lighter but still high strength and with all the features of the Thermo UltraGrip version.

The full range of Techno UltraGrip boots, in sizes from 6 to 13 are now available from SwanNet Gundry’s Marine division (https://sng.ie/fishing/inshore)
