Safety and quality

We are overall supplier of functional footwear (among other things) specialized in safety footwear. The strict EU standards in the field of safety are the foundation of our high quality products. In our product range of safety shoes, different classifications are used in accordance with the EN ISO 20345 standard. Below you’ll find the specifications concerning the different classifications.

EN ISO 20345:   Safety footwear for professional use, fitted with toe caps, designed to give protection against impact when tested at an energy level of 200 joules.

EN ISO 20347:   Non safety Shoes. 

Safety

SB         Shoes with steel nose and / or steel plate

SBP      Closed seat region, toe protection, antiperforation midsole (oil-, solvent- and acid resistance outsole, perforation resistance).

S1         Closed seat region, toe protection, antistatic (oil-, solvent- and acid resistant outsole, energy absorption of seat region).

S1P      Closed seat region, toe protection, antistatic, antiperforation midsole (oil-, solvent- and acid resistance outsole, energy
              absorption of seat region, perforation resistance).

S2         Closed seat region, toe protection, antistatic, a minimum of 60 minutes water resistant (oil-, solvent- and acid        
              resistant outsole, energy absorption of seat region).

S3         Closed seat region, toe protection, antistatic, a minimum of 60 minutes water resistant upper, antiperforation
              midsole (oil-, solvent- and acid resistant outsole, energy absorption of seat region, perforation resistance).

The following safety standards apply to the boots

S4         Boots with toe protection (antistatic, oil-, solvent- and acid resistant outsole, energy absorption of seat region, waterproof).

S5         Boots with toe protection, antiperforation midsole (antistatic, oil-, solvent- and acid resistant outsole, energy absorption of seat
              region, perforation resistance, waterproof.

 

The following safety standards apply to flame-retardant clothing:

EN ISO 11611: 2007

Protective clothing for welding and related processes. This clothing is intended to protect against welding spatter, short contact with the flame, radiant heat and to minimize an electric shock (with incidental contact of +/- 100V).
This standard defines the minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing, including hoods, aprons, sleeves, accessories and leggings designed to protect the wearer's body including head (s) and feet (leggings) and that must be worn during welding and related processes.

A1: Hereby the clothing meets the requirements for limited flame spread in case of surface inflammation.
A2: the clothing meets the requirements for limited flame spread in the case of edge inflammation.

Classification into 2 classes:

-class 1 offers protection against less dangerous welding techniques and situations caused by lower levels of splashing and radiant heat.
-class 2 offers protection against more dangerous welding techniques and situations due to higher levels of splashing and radiant heat.
EN ISO 11612: 2008

Protective clothing for heat and heat where clothing is required against limited flame spread and where the user can be exposed to radiant heat, convection heat, contact heat or molten metals.

A stands for limited flame spread;
B stands for convection heat, 3 levels to be achieved: B1, B2, B3 where 3 is the highest level;
C stands for radiant heat, 4 levels to be achieved: C1, C2, C3, C4 where 4 is the highest level;
D stands for aluminum splashes, 3 levels to be achieved: D1, D2, D3 where 3 is the highest level;
E stands for iron splashes, 3 levels to be achieved: E1, E2, E3 where 3 is the highest level;
F stands for contact heat, 3 levels to be achieved: F1, F2 and F3 where F3 is the highest level.
