Safety Toes 101: Composite and Steel
As we dive into the range of Justin safety boot styles, it is worth looking at safety toe materials. Work boots outfitted with safety toes can contain one of several kinds: composite, alloy, or steel. Composite toes are typically fabricated from fiberglass, carbon fiber, Kevlar or similar materials. While they offer impact protection, they are also lightweight. In contrast, steel toes are the traditional choice for protecting a wearer’s toes. Alloy safety toes provide a compromise with metal safety toes that cut the weight as well. All safety toes are meant to shield against impact injuries from falling objects.
Both Justin steel and composite toe boots are ASTM F2413 compliant and can include other safety features. Styles like the Justin Warhawk have composite toes and meet ASTM F2413 EH, or electrical hazard, standards. You’ll want to take a look at these ratings when shopping for work safety Justin boots for women and men.
The Skinny on Soft Toe Shoes
Besides composite and steel-toe shoes, you’ll also see Justin soft toe, or non-safety toe work boots. This footwear may contain solid toe caps made from lighter fiberglass or plastic, so they don’t provide the same level of protection as their composite and steel toe cousins. However, they must usually meet ASTM F2892, a prevailing soft toe protective standard in the industry. ASTM F2892 specifications deal with electrical charge-based and puncture hazards.
Electrical Hazard Protection
You may see Justin Work Boots with Electrical Hazard or EH features. Electrical hazard work boots include non-conductive materials that insulate from the ground to cut down on the risk of shock. Justin EH boots meet ASTM F2413 standards.
Protective Metatarsal Guards
In addition to safety toes, some work shoes contain metatarsal guards. Made from durable plastic, metal or carbon fiber, these fortified layers come with padding for extra comfort while reducing the risk of injury to the top of the foot. Justin metatarsal work boots feature a specially designed metguard that provides armor-like protection against compression injuries.
Step Surely With Non-Slip Footwear
While not every workplace requires safety toe footwear, many do call for slip-resistant outsoles. Slick floors can be a more widespread hazard than falling objects. While not every pair of safety shoes will have specific non-slip standards listed, the most common ones you will see include Mark II, SATRA, ASTM F3445 and ASTM F2913. Other models include outsoles designed for traction in outside work as well, such as the Vibram Commander-X5 rubber outsole offering superb resistance to chemicals, chipping, heat, and oil.
