ONE of the UK’s leading distributors has added a major forestry and safety boots manufacturer to its portfolio. 

Carr’s Billington Safety is now selling the Italian-made Zamberlan brand, which offers a wide range of footwear for tree-care professionals. 

With its forestry boots starting at Cut Level 2, all boots within this range come as standard with S3 composite midsole, Gore-Tex technology, Vibram outsoles, and the option of the BOA lacing system in the Delimber model. Recognising the pivotal role of weight in boot selection, the flagship, Logger Pro GXT RR, not only provides Cut Level 3 protection and S3 composite midsole but also weighs in at 1,000g (1/2 pair size 42). 


A statement from Carr’s added: “The safety boot collection represents a departure from traditional safety footwear, excelling particularly in rugged terrains by providing superior support and traction.

“Drawing from Zamberlan’s rich heritage in crafting mountaineering boots, they’ve leveraged their expertise to introduce safety boots specifically designed for extreme environments.” 

The statement added: “Among these, the Mountain Lite S3 GTX RR stands out as the flagship model, integrating all the essential safety features of a 3–4-season mountain boot while meeting EN ISO 202345:2022 S3 standards, and remarkably lightweight at only 1,000 g per half-pair.”

With its headquarters in the Italian Dolomites, Zamberlan boasts over 90 years of heritage in crafting the finest mountain and safety footwear.

Neil Thomas, Carr’s Billington Safety’s commercial manager, said: “We have been patiently working for a while now on several projects where bringing innovation and technology to the market has been our core focus. 

“We are delighted to be partnering in the UK with Zamberlan Forestry and Safety Boots as they tick both these boxes.”
