FOOTWEAR KEYS & STANDARDS
INNOVATION, QUALITY COMPONENTS AND EXPERT CONSTRUCTION DEFINE THE STEELITE™ AND COMPOSITELITE™ FOOTWEAR COLLECTION
The toecap protects the wearer's toes against risk of injury from falling objects and crushing when worn in work environments where potential hazards may occur. The midsole protects against the foot being pierced by under foot objects.
SAFETY FOOTWEAR CAN BE RECOGNISED BY THE FOLLOWING STANDARD:
EN ISO 20345:2004
THE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM USED TO IDENTIFY THE PROTECTION PROVIDED BY THE FOOTWEAR IS LISTED BELOW:
The presence of a safety toecap providing protection against impact injury to the toes caused by falling objects. Level of protection provided is 200 joules. Prevention of compression injury to the toes if trapped under a heavy object. Level of this protection is 15kN.
As SB standard plus penetration resistance.
As SB standard plus closed seat region. Antistatic properties and energy absorption of seat region.
As S1 standard plus penetration resistance.
As S1 standard plus water penetration and water absorption resistance.
As S2 standard plus cleated outsole and penetration resistance.
200 joule toecap protection. All rubber and polymeric footwear with antistatic properties. Energy absorption of seat region.
As S4 standard plus cleated outsole and penetration resistance.
This European Standard specifies a method of test for the slip resistance of conventionally soled safety, protective and conventionally soled safety, protective and occupational footwear. It is not applicable to special purpose footwear containing spikes, metal studs or similar. The item of footwear to be tested is put on a surface, subjected to a given normal force and moved horizontally relative to the surface. The frictional force is measued and the dynamci coefficient of frition is calculated. If the outsole passes both the ceramic floor test (SRA) and ther steel floor test (SRB), it is marked as SRC.
Electrostatics - Standard test methods for specific applications - Footwear.
This part of IEC 61340 descibes a test method for determining the electrical resistance of footwear used in the control of electrostatic potential on people. This standard is suitable for use by the manufacturer of footwear as well as the end user. Two types of footwear exist:
Electrostatic Conductive Footwear
Footwear as tested by the method described in the standard with an electrical resistance of < 1 Ω x 105.
Electrostatic Dissipative Footwear
Footwear as tested by the method described in the standard with an electrical resistance of >= 1 Ω x 105 and < 1 Ω x 108.
