A combination of water resistant materials and construction which helps protect the foot from getting wet in environments where excess water is present.
Safety footwear provides workers who may come in contact with live circuits, wires or highly charged electrical equipment, a secondary source of protection from electrical shock because of the insulating properties that stop a current from being grounded for a certain length of time. Such foot protection is provided under dry conditions and the insulating properties will deterioriate in wet environments and with wear. These shoes must not be worn in areas where there is static discharge or micro-circuit hazards.
Rockport Works footwear is manufactured to meet or exceed ASTM class 75 Impact and Compression standards. Protective footwear must pass separate tests for impact and compression. Under the Class 75 test for impact, a shoe must withstand a 75 lb. impact with 12.7 mm (0.50 in.) clearance for men’s and 11.9 mm (0.468 in.) clearance for women’s. Under the Class 75 test for compression, a shoe must withstand 2500 lbs. of compression while maintaining at least 12.7 mm (0.50 in.) clearance for men’s and 11.9 mm (0.468 in.) clearance for women’s.
A composite toe cap is made from a non-ferrous elastomeric material. This material is also light weight and will not conduct heat or electricity. Composite toes meet or exceed ASTM F2413-05 Standard for protective footwear.
Flex-Met – An anatomically shaped appliance permanently inserted internally in the instep area of the shoe and designed to provide additional protection to the instep area. Meets or exceeds the ASTM F2413-05 standard for Metatarsal footwear.
Outdoor Traction The shoe incorporates a special lug design on the bottom of the shoes’ sole to provide improved traction on grass covered outddor surfaces.
