New Mack Torque Range

INNOVATIVE RANGE OF MACK WORK BOOTS BASED ON RUNNING SHOE SOLE TECHNOLOGY.

Workers who suffer from sore feet when wearing work boots all day will finally get the necessary stability and support from Mack’s New TORQUE range of boots, featuring new midsole technology, for all day comfort, durability and fatigue reduction.

The unique new midsole technology, called modRIDE has been biomechanically designed to deliver a modulated ride from heel strike to toe off. The sole geometry is specifically engineered to provide reduced resistance to compression in zones that need cushioning and increased resistance in zones where additional stability is desired.
The midsole design, which is based on the latest running shoe technology, consists of unique waffle zones on the inside and outside of the boots.  These waffle zones offer compression for cushioning the foot at heel strike, and unique waffle stiffness to guarantee stability on the inner side of the shoe for a supportive walking gate.



The new Torque range of work boots consists of five styles in the latest colours to cover the cross section of roles and occupations that require safety footwear.  Other features include the following:-

  • premium grade full grain leather uppers
  • steel safety toecap*
  • anti-static protection
  • an integrated bumper cap for longevity
  • heat (to 150°C), water & fuel / oil resistance
  • a soft yet structured ankle collar for added comfort and support
  • a lower non-slip sole that performs exceptionally well on both rough and flat terrains.

The fitting profile of the new Torque Safety Boots also suits those with a wider foot and with both zip and non-zip versions, slip on leather styles, and the choice of a lower ankle (hiking style) version in the Torque Shift Boot, the range will suit most workers.

The New Mack Torque range consists of five styles that include the Mack Force, Mack Force Zip, Mack Shift Zip, Mack Hub and Mack Cruise.

*All styles, except the Mack Cruise work boot include the Steel Toe Cap.

Introducing Mack Workwear

Following on the heels of the popular, Australian-designed Mack work boots, comes a new range of Mack Workwear, designed for the daily grind.

This new range follows the same innovative, bio-mechanical design principles behind Mack footwear. Mack Workwear has been designed to endure, made to move and most importantly, worn to perform.

In developing this new range, Mack’s design and development team partnered with tradies and workers to understand the specific functional requirements for the Australian workplace. Australian men wanted great quality workwear which wasn’t limited to just work. Mack have developed a range that feels good, performs at work and looks great.

Mack Workwear has been designed with several high-performance systems, including breathable fabrics and unique cuts that promise a comfortable fit – particularly in the high movement leg and shoulder areas. This range also features reinforced materials in places that are prone to rubbing, scuffing or fraying from wear and tear to guarantee peak performance in extreme working conditions.

February Product of the Month: Mack Monterey Safety Glasses

The New Mack Monterey high performance safety glasses are completely glare free, improve contrast and general vision and are extremely comfortable to wear for prolonged periods.

Mack Monterey’s ensure wearer acceptance and compliance with their lightweight yet robust polycarbonate wrap-around frame which ensures a snug fit, and smooth edged side arms for close fitting eye safety and comfort. Comfort and hygiene are also enhanced by the PVC free ‘in frame’ nose bridge.

Featuring the latest advanced polarised, anti-scratch lenses, the Monterey’s provide long lasting, glare free protection.

Mack Monterey safety glasses block 100% UVA and UVB harmful rays and comply with AS/NZS 1337.1.

Designed to endure, made to move, worn to perform, these new Mack Monterey safety specs are the perfect addition to your uniform.

New Contego Mechanics Gloves

New Contego Mechanics Gloves – A quantum leap in protection, grip and comfort

Contego have added 5 new gloves to their existing range of premium anti-impact and vibration resistant mechanics gloves.

The new gloves utilise new technologies in cut resistance, grip and comfort to a level of sophistication not seen before in the Australian market. With new high-tech materials that offer a better level of protection, breathability and dexterity, wearers can be assured that hazards will be covered without interfering with dexterity required to handle small parts.

The new releases include the Blackwater, Jabiru, Roxby, Chillagoe, and Versadex – all with their own unique features to suit varying applications.  And if you recognise some of these names as Australian mining towns, that’s no accident!  These new gloves are ideal for the mining and resources sector and have already pre-sold well into this market.

For years, Contego’s commitment to hand protection has earned the trust of millions of wearers across Australia, and now the new styles will enhance the existing range to offer a wider breadth of applications across all industries.

The Contego Blackwater and Jabiru for example, offer all the benefits of a Contego glove, but with added Cut level 5 palm protection - with the Jabiru also providing supreme back of hand cut protection.

And although all Contego gloves offer impact and vibration resistance, the new Contego Roxby offer supreme impact protection with 5mm thick TPR (thermo plastic rubber) on fingertips and 8mm TPR on the knuckle and back of hand.

For cold and wet environments, the new Contego Chillagoe gloves not only provide a superior grip, but also include 3M thinsulate insulation, water repellent fabric and a water barrier insert to keep hands dry.

Finally, if it’s great fit and breathability that’s required, the new Versadex offer a slim cut design with great tactility - ideal for light duty sensitive work (also perfect for riggers).

The ideal lightweight, yet robust range for a variety of applications

The new B-safe Arresto inertia reels or self-retracting lifelines (SRL’s) are fast acting, heavy duty fall arrestors that limit the free fall distance, deceleration distance and fall arrest forces while enabling freedom of movement for the user.  They have been rated and manufactured to 140kgs, with increased gate strengths on components, to meet the soon to be released Australian Standard AS1891.3 for Industrial Fall Arrest Systems and Devices.

For convenience, cost effectiveness and fast turnaround times, servicing and re-certification of all Arresto inertia reels (except the lightweight mini BMIC02-130 & 130AT models) can be undertaken by Beaver Brands & Bunzl Safety branches for shorter lead times and reduced costs. Qualified repair staff and NATA accredited testing facilities are available in each major branch.
