Boot Features
You can use our boots made of polyurethane material easily in all seasons due to their superior thermal insulation feature. Boot types and the protective materials they contain are shown in the table on the right.

  • O5 boots provide protection against materials such as nails and glass that can puncture the sole, as they contain a steel sole protector.
  • Safety Footwear S4 boots provide protection by preventing impacts to the toe, as they contain a steel protector on the toe. The Steel Toe provides protection against a 200 Joules equivalent impact from a 20 kg object dropped from a height of 1 meter. It may not protect against an impact greater than 200 Joules.
  • Safety Footwear S5 boots provide both of the protections mentioned above, as they contain both a steel sole and a steel toe cap.
  • Work Footwear must meet the requirements of the provisions in the EN ISO 20345 standard. (SB, S4, S5)
  • Safety Footwear must meet the requirements of the provisions in the EN ISO 20347 standard. (OB, O4, O5)
  • Breakage or Cracking is not visible down to -40°C.
  • The production date is located under the foot number as month and year.
  • Our boots have SRC slip resistance.
  • SRA: Slip resistance on ceramic floor with Sodium Larul Sulphate solution
  • SRB: Slip resistance on glycerine floor
  • SRC: Boot that passed both SRA and SRB tests.(SRA + SRB)
  • The boots have antistatic properties.

Antistatic footwear should be used when it is necessary to minimize electrostatic build-up through the propagation of electrostatic charges so that, for example, it is possible to avoid the risk of ignition of flammable substances and vapors by sparks and the risk of shock from any electrical apparatus or electrically charged part cannot be completely eliminated. However, it should be noted that anti-static footwear cannot guarantee adequate protection against electric shock simply because it provides resistance between the foot and the ground. If the risk of electric shock has not been completely eliminated, additional measures are necessary to avoid this risk. Such measures, as well as the additional testing mentioned below, should be a routine part of the workplace accident prevention programme.

Boots are antistatic if the measured contact resistance is in the range of 100 KiloOhm (10⁵ohm) to 1 GigaOhm (10⁹ohm). According to the standard, if the contact resistance falls below this value, they are conductive, a higher value means they are electrically insulating. The electrical resistance of antistatic products varies considerably under bending, smearing, humidity and pollution conditions. Boots used in wet conditions cannot provide their electrical functions. The user must take additional precautions/protections to protect himself. Before entering the dangerous area, the electrical resistance of the boot should be retested at regular and frequent intervals due to the risk of contamination and dirt on the sole of the boot."

Important warning

  • Antistatic Footwear does not guarantee equivalent protection against electric shock simply because it provides resistance between the floor and the foot.
  • Footwear Tests were made without Fuspet sole. If the fuspet is placed, it may affect the protective properties of the footwear.
  • Under the terms of the User's Guide, the lifetime of this harness is 1 year.

 

Boot Use, Care and Storage Conditions
After using your boots, all kinds of residues (dirt, mud, fertilizer, chemicals, etc.) that may occur on it should be cleaned with water, soap and a clean cloth or brush. Chemical cleaners should not be used. After the boot is used in every busy working environment, it must be cleaned. The boots should not be exposed to heat that can be found in the working or storage environment. It should be stored in a dry and cool place away from moisture and sun.
