BOROS

Highest comfort. Maximum protection.

Fire fighting boots certified according to EN 15090 F2A HI3 CI AN SRC and EN 61340-4-3.

Boots are more than just a piece of equipment for firefighters. They accompany them from the moment they put them on in the fire station changing room until they return after the call-out. Through cold and heat. Through fire and water. Whether they’re dealing with ice or hot rubble. They not only protect the wearer’s feet, but ensure a sure-footed response and protect the firefighter’s entire body for hours at a time.

Boots to make you feel good.

Specially developed for the fire service


With their new BOROS boot line, the Rosenbauer developers have paid particular attention to making the boots feel as if they are one with the wearer. They aim to not only be stable, robust and optimally protect the feet of firefighters as they go about their tough, everyday life, but to also be as light as possible, as comfortable as possible and as practical as possible. The answer to all these demands is the BOROS B1 pull-on boot and the BOROS B4 with the Rosenbauer quick release fastener.

 

By using the most modern materials, specially developed technologies and, most importantly, by completely focusing on Rosenbauer's clientèle — including fire brigades all over the world – Rosenbauer was able to achieve this goal. Everyone can now enjoy wearing them, safe in the knowledge that they are perfectly equipped.

 

All BOROS models are certified according to the European standard (EN15090 F2A) for fire fighting boots and are suitable for outdoor and indoor use.

Step forward in safety. - Soles by Michelin

To a large extent, the sole of a boot determines how safely you can move around. The key to ensuring good adhesion to the walking surface are the grips on the sole. Only a profiled sole can keep a sufficient grip on uneven ground, whether that be on ice and snow, or rubble and scree. When it comes to firefighting operations, another factor comes into play – the sole of the boot must function in all temperature ranges, from the freezing cold through to environments that are quite literally burning hot.

 

Collaboration with Michelin for the perfect grip

When it comes to the tires on its PANTHER airport fire engine, Rosenbauer relies on a rubber compound from Michelin, one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers. So, Michelin developed a sole exclusively for Rosenbauer, ensuring that BOROS boots grip tightly in all situations, while remaining extraordinarily resistant. Not only are they resistant to mechanical stresses, they are also resistant to oil, petrol and most acids. In addition, the antistatic rubber compound prevents sparking, which offers an added layer of protection when working in potentially explosive areas.

 

Replaceable soles

The sole of the boot can also be replaced if it becomes damaged through thermal overstress or mechanical wear. This is both sustainable and saves the cost of purchasing a new pair of boots by allowing the components to be separately replaced. 

Focus on the sole.

Special rubber compound

A rubber compound has been developed especially for firefighting use; it functions reliably in both extreme cold (-40 °C) and extreme heat (300 °C).

 

Penetration protection

Penetration protection made from steel is integrated into the sole. This provides the wearer with a level of protection from injury caused by items like protruding nails etc.

 

Excellent cushioning

Rubber strips inside the sole provide very good cushioning, especially in the heel area.

 

High flexibility

The blocks of treads are interrupted by grooves, providing greater flexibility around the ball of the foot. This supports the natural rolling movement of the foot.

 

Special profile

The combination of the siping and a unique tread geometry ensures excellent grip, even on slippery surfaces.

 

Thread wear indicator

The integrated indicator shows whether the sole has sufficient tread thickness.

 

Pull-off aid

A stable edge in the heel area makes it easy and comfortable to remove the boot.

The right climate. - SympaTex® ensures dry feet.

Whether it’s scorching heat or freezing cold, steam or icy rain, a firefighter’s boots are exposed to the toughest of adverse external conditions. But this is only one side of the story. Inside the boot, a sweaty, stressed foot can quickly create a quasi-tropical climate. To meet this challenge and regulate temperature and humidity, Rosenbauer developed the ideal solution for their boots by using a membrane made from SympaTex®.

 

SympaTex® ensures dry feet.

All climate membranes are selectively permeable with respect to water. This means that they are impermeable to water droplets, but permeable to water vapour, which makes them breathable.

 

The SympaTex® membrane is permeated with tiny threads that are very sensitive to moisture and swell when damp and thus remove more water vapor away from the body. In brief, the more heat that is generated, the better the climate regulation performance. This clearly speaks for the use of the BOROS models - in summer and winter. In addition, the membrane is extremely stretchy, fits the shape of the boot perfectly and retains its functional properties in every situation.
