MERCANTA Toe Protection Heavy falling or dropped objects and vehicles in motion are work hazards faced every day. In many cases, employers require protective footwear; in other cases, it just makes good sense. Red Wing has three types of toe caps to choose from. All of Red Wings’ safety toe footwear meets some form of global safety standards, such as ASTM F2413-11, I/75, C/75, for impact and compression. T Steel Toe Made of one of the most durable and dependable materials on earth, steel toe caps provide ultimate protection for the most hazardous environments. AT Aluminium Toe Made from aluminium material, these caps are 31 % lighter than steel while still meeting the same safety standards. NT Non-Metallic Toe Made from varying combinations of nylon, plastic, and fiberglass, this toe cap provides the protection of a steel toe cap without the inconvenience of tripping metal detectors. Footwear, which is manufactured in accordance with the EN ISO 20345:2011 is determined under SBP classes, which mean Toe Protection and Penetration Resistance. Toe Protection under class SB means that the toe resists impact of at least 200 joules and a compression mass of more than 1.000 kg. Footwear certified to class S4 is anti-static, the outsole must resist fuel and oil, there must be energy absorption in the heel and it also must be waterproof. Footwear that is certified to class S5 meets all the performance requirements of that certified to class S4, plus offers additional penetration resistance. Other Protection Characteristics Protective footwear is designed for protection in various applications, including Electrical Hazard, Static-Dissipative, Puncture Resistant, and Metatarsal Guard. 75lb. H Electrical Hazard Electrical Hazard protective sole and heel. The sole construction of this footwear is designed to reduce hazards due to contact of the outsole with electrically energized parts, to provide a secondary source of protection. EH designates footwear that is designed to withstand 18,000 volts (rms) at 60Hz for one minute with no current flow or leakage in excess of 1.0 milliamperes (mA) under dry conditions. Static-Dissipative Static-Dissipative standards for the reduction of the accumulation of excess static electricity by conducting the charge from the body to the ground while maintaining electrical resistance from 106 ohms (1 megohm) to 108 ohms (100 megohms). RECOMMENDED: Static-dissipative footwear should be worn only in clean environments and in conjunction with static-dissipative flooring. 106 = 1,000.000 = 1 megohm 108 = 100,000.000 = 100 megohm Puncture Resistant Puncture Resistant standards for reducing the possibility of puncture wounds to the sole of the foot by penetrating objects. Footwear contains a puncture-resistant protective device, such as the midsole, that must be an integral part of the shoe to meet ASTM F2413-11. Must withstand a minimum force of not less than 270 pounds-force. T Metatarsal Guard Metatarsal guard standards for protection of the upper foot and toe area. Developed to reduce or prevent injury to the wearer’s metatarsal area (instep) and toes from “drop” hazards. 223
