Electrical Protection

Static Dissipative For highly static environments

Static Dissipative

We offer a range of Steel Blue boots that are Static Dissipative, meaning they dissipate the amount of static electricity build-up in 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.

Our Static Dissipative range of Steel Blue safety boots comply with American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2413. Soft Toe work boots that include Steel Blue’s Static Dissipative technology comply with American Safety Footwear Certification ASTM F2892.

Static Dissipative work boots should be cleaned and tested regularly to ensure the Static Dissipative 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 with an EH Series label on the upper of the boot. 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
