The name may sound a little funny (u-lees), but this newly designed clean step system could change the way you work. The value of reusable work boot covers has only recently been acknowledged. With the growth of information on the direct and indirect costs of disposable booties, the amount of waste they produce, and the potentially hazardous incidents they can cause, many companies are looking for a new option. YULEYS® were originally created to benefit workers providing in-home service support, but after the product was purchased by HexArmor®, they have since found their way into the industrial market.


The Creator of YULEYS®
HexArmor® acquired the YULEYS® clean step system in January of this year, from YULEYS® creator Nicole Reid of Thunder Bay, Canada. Nicole noticed the challenges movers wearing steel toed boots faced when delivering furniture. Specifically incidents of tracking dirt onto customer’s floors while wearing disposable booties. From that point on Nicole dedicated her efforts to creating a solution that would work better than disposable booties, be more cost-effective, and easier to use.  After five years of designing and perfecting YULEYS®, the clean step system was launched in 2013; work boot covers made of industrial-grade thermoplastic rubber.

Nicole designed YULEYS® to be hands-free, easy-to-clean, and made of industrial-grade materials. The high-quality product quickly became an international success. And after seeing YULEYS® in action, HexArmor® knew this product could benefit not only in-home service companies, but also industrial workers. 


YULEYS® on the Industrial Side
Although YULEYS® were originally designed for in-home service workers, the benefits of these reusable boot covers spread far across all industry types including food service, mining, aerospace, hospitality, pharmaceuticals, and even oil and gas. YULEYS® offer a comfortable and highly effective way for workers to comply with company mandates on wearing booties when entering a facility. They also provide better traction on indoor surfaces including wood, tile, and linoleum.

We’ve seen success with oil and gas companies who have workers going indoors from the oilfield for meals, meetings, and rest. Food processing facilities using YULEYS® to protecting workers from potential slip hazards. Pharmacies needing to keep their facilities sterile are using YULEYS® to stop unwanted dirt and contaminants from being tracked indoors. And airports are using YULEYS® boot covers to end wasted time that occurs every time a worker enters the terminal and they have to put on a pair of booties. Could the YULEYS® clean step system be right for your company?
