Heat-resistant safety shoes
Heat-resistant safety shoes
Working in many enterprises is associated with serious health risks. To reduce the risk to workers to a minimum and to prevent injury, employers must provide workers with special protective equipment. Heat-resistant safety footwear should protect workers from hypothermia and burns. Heat-resistant leather boots and boots, in addition to fulfilling their main function – to protect personnel from injuries and injuries to the legs, protect workers from high and low temperatures.
For example, it is necessary to buy shoes for the welder to protect against calf and metal splashes. Heat-resistant footwear is particularly resistant to very low and ultra-high temperatures. High-quality safety shoes, such as leather heat-resistant boots EXENA, GIASCO, have a temperature range of -20 to + 300 ° C.
Why safety shoes with increased heat resistance are required
Most often, heat-resistant boots and boots in Kiev are bought for the following industries:
Ship repair work.
If workers spend a lot of time in the cold, snow, or, conversely, have to move on hot surfaces, ordinary safety footwear may not provide the necessary protection. Heat-resistant leather boots and boots are made of special, very durable materials that do not lend themselves to temperatures.
The soles for heat-resistant shoes are made of two-layer polyurethane – this is a light and flexible material that almost does not deform, and of nitrile rubber with HRO protection. The upper material is preferable from genuine leather, nitrile rubber or leather with a polyurethane coating, due to which the boots are almost unaffected by external influences and serve for several years.
A quality HRO shoe should fit snugly around the foot, especially in the instep area, to provide cushioning. It is for this reason that you should not buy cheap thermal shoes, most often they do not correspond to the characteristics in the description and quickly deteriorate.
How to choose and buy heat-resistant shoes
When choosing protective footwear, it is necessary to take into account the specifics of the activities of workers, because the necessary protective properties will depend on this. For example, the footwear of a welder, metallurgist will differ from footwear that is used in construction or in security activities.
If workers have to walk on a hot floor, it matters how long they have to be in contact with it, as not all heat-resistant shoes are designed to stay in contact with heated surfaces for more than a minute – regardless of brand.
Shaft height is also of great importance, as not all HRO working conditions will provide sufficient protection, for some occupations it is necessary to buy heat-resistant boots. For example, if the workers have to be in the snow for a long time.
It is worth buying HRO boots in the late afternoon, as the foot can swell up and increase by half a size during the day. For the same reason, you cannot buy uncomfortable heat-resistant shoes in the hope that they will spread – it is important that the product is immediately comfortable.
