As a frontrunner in the safety shoe industry, Solid Gear Footwear has set a new standard for safety shoes. Using modern high-tech materials, we show that quality safety shoes can be more than heavy boots. Safety footwear can be lightweight, sporty shoes with great comfort and design, without compromising on safety.
ISO 20345:2011 is an EN standard that specifies basic and additional (optional) requirements for safety footwear used for general purpose. It includes, for example, mechanical risks, slip resistance, thermal risks and ergonomic behaviour.
Protective toecap (200J/15000N)
Fully enclosed heel
Electrical resistance (between 0.1-1000 MegaOhms)
Energy absorption in the heel area (tested at 20 Joules)
Safety shoes are a type of certified work shoes that protect your feet against various risks in your work environment. They meet various safety requirements according to EN standard ISO 20345. Safety shoes always have a protective toe cap and are grouped into safety classes, from SB and S1 to S5. Each safety class defines the protection that the shoe offers.
Safety shoes protect your feet from hazards in your work environment that can injure you and your feet. Potential dangers range from sharp objects on the ground and slippery conditions to electric shocks or heat and cold. The toe cap protects your feet against falling objects and crush injuries. The soles of safety shoes can be anti-static, penetration-resistant and non-slip.
