If you are looking for non-metallic safety shoes (also called “Metal-free safety shoes”), then I recommend you keep reading this article.

I will answer the most frequently asked questions about metal-free safety shoes, to help you find the perfect product for you needs!

In what cases should metal-free safety shoes be used?

  • If in your job you need get through metal detectors very often
  • If in your work in the presence of substances which can corrode metal
  • If you wish a high level of electrical insulation
  • If you want good heat and cold insulation

For this reasons metal free safety shoes were created

Metal-free safety shoes can be of any category: S1, S1P, S2, S3, S4 or S5, and hence they can comply with the standard 20345. What matters is that they don’t have eyelets, zippers, a toecap or a puncture-proof layer made of metal. Those parts must be of plastic or textile.

What are the non-metallic parts?

  • The eyelets can be made of plastic material
  • The toecap can be of composite material of glass fiber
  • The puncture-proof liner can be of textile

Safety shoes can also have additional properties (mostly required in specific sectors), alongwith the corresponding marking. The most frequent ones are:

  • CI = “Cold Insulation”
  • ESD = “Electrostatic Discharge”. ESD shoes are not designed to protect the wearer, rather the electrical equipment sensitive to electrostatic discharges
  • HI = “Heat Insulation” (in the outsole)
  • HRO = the outsoles can withstand the contact with very hot surfaces

What models of metal-free safety shoes should I choose?

 

These tips should help you to find the perfect model of metal-free safety shoes for your needs.

As soon as you choose your perfect pair of metal free safety shoes, you will be better protected and you will live a better working experience.
