Electrical Protection

Anti-Static For highly static environments


Most Steel Blue boots are Anti-Static, meaning they dissipate the amount of static electricity build-up on your body. In fact, they actually conduct the static electricity through the soles and into the ground.   

This offers a level of protection against ignition hazards such as flammable materials and gases.

If you work with flammable materials, ignitable gases, sensitive electronic equipment or in an environment that creates static electricity build-up (where you get ‘zapped’ from touching doors and machinery), you’ll benefit from these Steel Blue boots.

The Anti-Static range of Steel Blue safety boots complies with:

  • Australian and New Zealand Safety Footwear Standard AS/NZS 2210.3
  • International and European Safety Footwear Certification EN ISO 20345
  • American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2413

Steel Blue’s Non-Safety Anti-Static work boots also comply with Australian and New Zealand Safety Footwear Standard AS/NZS 2210.5, International and European Safety Footwear Certification EN ISO 20347, and American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2892

Anti-Static work boots should be cleaned and tested regularly to ensure the Anti-Static properties haven’t deteriorated. Flexing, contamination and moisture can change their electrical resistance.

Electrical Hazard

Our non-conductive footwear is designed to reduce the hazards due to accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors or parts of apparatus up to 600 volts (AC). These Steel Blue boots are clearly marked and have a distinct yellow colour plug in the rubber sole. This footwear is not suitable where anti-static properties are needed.

Note: EH Series footwear is intended for use as secondary protective personal equipment. It is to be used in conjunction with primary protective equipment in areas and environments where there is a need to reduce the risk of electric shock due to accidental contact with live electric wires.

EH Series: Electric Shock Resistant: 18000 volts at 60 Hz for 1 minute in dry conditions, leakage current of less than 1 milliamperes. Meets requirements for American Standard ASTM F 2413 – EH.

Important: EH safety shoes should not be used as the primary source of protection in an electrical hazard environment.

Caution: EH protection is severely deteriorated in the following conditions:

  • Excessive wear of the soling material or exposure to wet and humid environments or both.
  • Where footwear becomes contaminated with conductive materials. For example, soles can pick up metal shavings, etc., which may reduce the effectiveness of the protection
