Welcome to the next evolution in Safety Footwear...

Welcome to DCR

At Bova, we are committed to innovating products that are Engineered with Purpose

Up until now, those working in extreme and hazardous conditions relied on footwear comprising either a single density Vulcanised Rubber sole, Nitrile Rubber sole or a dual density Polyurethane/Rubber (Pu/Rubber) sole. While single density Rubber soles provide the wearer with the necessary protection in these harsh conditions, they cause discomfort due to their heavy nature and lack of a midsole.

PU/Rubber soles answered the demand for a lighter boot with improved comfort, through the inclusion of Polyurethane in the mid-sole, but this has simultaneously compromised the durability of the products in the face of extreme environments.

We needed to find a solution that would bring together the benefits offered by both these soling technologies, whilst eliminating their short comings.

This resulted in the development of a new range of safety footwear.

As the leading manufacturer of safety footwear in Africa, it is our responsibility to constantly explore the products we release into the market and ask if this is the best that we can offer our wearers. As technology evolves, it is our job to update our products to reflect the latest in safety footwear engineering, in line with market requirements and costs.

What is DCR?

DCR is an innovative soling technology utilising two different layers of rubber where the soles are directly injected onto the uppers for a superior bond, increasing the longevity of the product.

By removing Polyurethane from the PU/Rubber product offering, and replacing it with a light-weight Rubber, we have eliminated the destructive effects caused by hydrolysis in the face of fluctuating temperatures and damp, harsh conditions. This increases its durability to the level of Nitrile Rubber sole footwear whilst maintaining the comfort that dual density soling products offer.
