  • S1 = closed heel area, anti-electrostatic properties, energy absorption in the heel,
  • S2 = S1 + resistance to permeability and water absorption,
  • S3 = S2 + puncture resistance of the sole and thickness of the sole relief,

Explanation of codes indicating the degree of protection of safety shoes:

Finished footwear:
  • §P - puncture resistance with a force of 1100N,
  • §C - conductive footwear,
  • §A - anti-electrostatic footwear,
  • §I - electro-insulating footwear,
  • §HI - insulation from heat,
  • §CI - insulation from cold,
  • §E - energy absorption in the heel area,
  • §WR - water resistance,
  • §M - midfoot resistance.
  • §WRU - top of footwear impermeable to water,
  • §CR - cut resistance.
  • §HRO - resistance to contact with hot ground up to 300 ℃.
