Dunlop Explorer Thermo+ full safety with Vibram sole

The real oil, gas and mining boot

  • Lightweight for use all day long
  • SRC rated, dirt-repellent Vibram® outsole for perfect grip
  • Slip resistant for protection under cold conditions

    S5 certified

    The S5 classification is the most stringent category with respect to protective features for safety footwear. Unique for the S5 classification is that the boots are equipped with a protective toecap and midsole and a cleated outsole. Other protective features include slip resistance, antistatic properties, energy absorption of the heel region, resistance to fuel oil. The boots are tested and certified in accordance with the EN ISO 20345:2011 standard.

    SRC certified slip resistancy

    The SRC classified boots meet the most stringent requirements for slip resistance and comply to both SRA and SRB. SRA slip resistance is tested on ceramic tile floors covered with a dilute soap solution, while SRB slip resistance is tested on steel floors covered with glycerine. The tests are based on measuring the coefficients of friction in forward heel slip and forward flat slip state. The results provide a good indication of the actual slip resistance of the boots in practice on slippery tile and steel surfaces.

    Protective toe cap and protective midsole

    The boots feature a protective toecap and midsole for offering maximum protection against falling and penetrating objects. Tested and certified in accordance with the EN ISO 20345:2011 standard, the built-in protective toecap serves to protect the toes from impacts of an energy level of 200 J and a compression at a load of 15 kN. The protective midsole is positioned in the sole and penetration is prevented until a force of 1100 N. Dunlop boots with a protective toecap and midsole are labelled as Full Safety.

    Cold insulation

    Purofort® boots prevent heat loss and offer outstanding thermal properties. Due to the unique recipe and molecular structure, all Purofort boots assure excellent cold insulation down to -20 °C. And even down to -50 °C in case of Purofort Thermo+ boots. Purofort boots are classified as CI, meaning that the temperature decrease measured at the upper surface of the insole does not exceed 10 °C after 30 minutes.


    By design, the boots offer a perfect fit, optimizing comfort for everyday use.


    The boots are 100% waterproof to keep your feet dry under wet and dirty conditions.

    Fuel oil resistant

    The outsole is resistant against oil, which assures that potentially adverse effects of oily substances on the protective properties of the boots are minimized.

    Chemical resistant

    The boots offer protection against a wide variety of chemicals. The specific application with types of chemicals encountered and conditions faced will determine which boot should be opted for.

    Energy absorbing

    The boots feature energy absorption of the heel region which limits impact to the foot while walking. The provision of shock absorption capabilities within the footwear minimizes risk of injuries.
