Beyond Industry Standards
BOVA is engineered to exceed expectations. Our safety engineering is backed by local and international, cutting edge technology, innovation and accreditation.
Podiatry Association of South Africa (PASA)
PASA approved styles are ergonomically designed, manufactured and tested in order to increase overall foot health and reduce the incidence of foot discomfort as approved by qualified podiatrists.
ENERGISER Woollen TOP SOCK TECHNOLOGY
Made from a combination of polyester and wool and treated with Ultra-Fresh, the top sock has anti-microbial properties that fight fungal and bacterial infections.
Vibram is the world leader in rubber sole technology.The Bova Extreme Slip Range, featuring the Vibram Rubber Sole, utilises this renowned traction engineering to provide superior slip resistance.
PORON / EVA CUSHIONED TOP SOCK TECHNOLOGY
The top sock responds to temperature and weight and moulds to the shape of each wearer’s foot. The Poron insert at the front and heel of the foot provides optimum support where it is needed most. Benefits of this top sock include: shock absorption, a reduction in aches and fatigue and increased comfort.
This internationally patented microbial technology protects various products (including spacesuits), giving longer lifespan, lasting performance, odour control, anti- microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial protection. Every BOVA shoe and boot includes Ultra-Fresh Technology moisture management.
GELONAIRTM TOP SOCK TECHNOLOGY
Moulded from a thermoplastic rubber gel material, the top sock delivers high cushion energy before and after compression, resulting in improved vascular micro-circulation of the foot.
RUCO-BAC AGP TECHNOLOGY
A silver-based, anti-microbial technology that fights foot odour, allergies and infections. BOVA Sox are treated with a Ruco-Bac AGP anti-microbial silver based technology that utilises nano particles of silver chloride. 95% of bacteria is killed within two hours. This product is environmentally-friendly.
Meeting your industry’s needs means ensuring our safety footwear is engineered with the features you require.
Prevents the conduction of electricity.
200 JOULES COMPLIANCE
200 Joules compliance means that the toe cap's impact resistance is tested by a steel striker of mass 20kg ±0.4kg adapted to fall freely on vertical guides from a predetermined height of 1000mm.
Allows static electricity to pass through and dissipate.
This shoe contains no metal parts.
