INDUSTRIAL STARTER S.p.A.
INDUSTRIAL STARTER was founded in 1962 as a company specializing in the production of raincoats on behalf of PIRELLI Spa. Raincoat branded "INDUSTRIAL STARTER PIRELLI" were worn by virtually all ecological operators in Italy. Definitely more mature people remember the workers who wore these typical waterproof rubberized fabric with hat in black. The real producer as "fassonista" was Mr.. Giancarlo Roncolato, the current President of INDUSTRIAL STARTER S.p.A., which in 1972 bought the brand and equipment to produce their own. Over the years and with the evolution of technology, the waterproof stitched and taped it has gone to the "wax-sealed" and a widening range of items sold, for as much since 1980 INDUSTRIAL STARTER become an importer of rubber boots.

The WKR can accommodate knee pads with padding and are made of strong waterproof fabric so as not to wet the knees.
ISSA Line garments use TPU membrane from sportwear that allow to combine two features, waterproofing and breathability, considered incompatible for long time. Issa membrane presents thousands of tiny holes, small enough not to pass the water molecule, but large enough to allow vapor perspiration so as to keep the body dry and body temperature pleasant. The body of an adult man can produce a quantity of sweat per hour equal to 50 ml in resting phase, one liter per hour during heavy work activities and up to four liter during an Olympic marathon. It can be easily understood that the sweat that cannot be transferred outside stays on the skin and soaks clothes causing a cold effect in winter and hot one in summer.
