FEATURES
ELECTROSTATIC PROPERTY
  • Anti-Static

    Anti-Static

    Anti-Static

    Anti-Static footwear has an electrical resistance between 0.1 and 1000 megaohm (M), measured according to EN 20344:2011.

    They conduct static electricity through the insole, linings, outsole and into the ground, helping regulate the build-up of electrical charge on a person’s body and help protect against the dangers of static build-up in the workplace.

    These are used to reduce the chance of sparks igniting flammable substances or vapours. The aim is therefore to protect those wearing safety shoes (and their colleagues) from dangers related to electrostatic build-up.

  • ESD

    ESD

    ESD

    ESD has the same benefit as Anti-Static, however it’s resistance range is much lower. They have an electrical resistance between 0.1 and just 35 megaohm (MΩ), measured according to EN 20344:2011.

    For this reason, all ESD compliant footwear is anti-static, however not all anti-static footwear is ESD compliant.

    Rock Fall certify our ESD footwear to the latest available standard EN 61340-5-1:2016, and work to a maximum resistance range of 35 megaohm (M).
