The #982 safety boots are packed with features including:
1. CHEMICAL-RESISTANT UPPER*
These boots are suitable for industries where caustic and acid spillages are a risk.
*Below the bottom level of the trouser line.
2. RUBBER OUTSOLE—300°C HEAT RESISTANT
The outsole is heat resistant to temperatures up to at least 300°C. It has a very high insulating value, providing short term resistance to melting and cracks at higher than normal temperature ranges that may be encountered in an industrial environment.
3. UNIQUE DESIGN ZIP SYSTEM
Designed to prevent chemical penetration, the heavy-duty YKK Vislon® zip has a self-cleaning gusset tucked behind the zip. This acts as a channel so any liquid chemical splash can flow down the gusset and exit through the open end.
4. LUXURY PU FOOTBED
Our ultimate Comfort Arch footbed is made from soft polyurethane, covered with a full length cushion of foam polyurethane, topped by a long-wearing mesh cover. This footbed has an airflow and moisture-wicking system and also includes a large pad of XRD® Extreme Impact Protection under the ball of the foot.
5. ELECTRICAL HAZARD RESISTANT
Where there is a risk that a person may come in contact with a live electrical circuit, electrical shock hazard footwear will provide the best possible protection against electrical shock hazard. This boot is certified to ASTM F2413-18. Clause 5.6 for electrical shock hazard resistance.
6. STEEL TOE CAP
Broad fitting Type 1 steel toe cap tested to resist a 200 joule impact. Steel is the safest toe cap material available, providing the highest level of resistance to impacts, punctures, cuts, and rolling side compression.
