ESD

ESD approved

Footwear with an ESD label avoid electrostatic charging and are able to conduct away controlled static electricity from the body. This will avoid damages to, for example, sensitive electronic components.

Slip resistant sole

Excellent traction with slip resistant soles. Approved by both SRA (tested with soap on ceramics) and SRB (tested with oil on steel), which automatically achieves the best standard for slip-resistant soles, SRC.

Flexible

Footwear with this symbol is extremely flexible where the shoes bend. This gives you more freedom to move around as you need to during the workday. Freedom for your feet.

Lightweight

The symbol indicates that the safety footwear has a much lower weight than average. Choose footwear with this symbol, if you are looking for flexible and lightweight footwear.

Metal free

Footwear with this symbol contains no metal. The midsole, toe cap and eyelets are entirely metal-free. As such, the footwear is very useful, for example, in airports.

Water-repellent upper material

WRU is short for Water Repellent Upper and indicates that the upper material is water-repellent.

Ergonomic composite toe cap

The purpose of the toe cap is to protect the toes against external blows and pressure. The cap has been tested and can resist blows and pressure of 200 joules (EN 12568). The composite toe cap does not contain metal. As composite is not thermally conductive it therefore provides comfort in cold and warm environments.

Ergonomic aluminium toe cap

The purpose of the toe cap is to protect the toes against external blows and pressure. The cap has been tested and can resist blows and pressure of 200 joules. The ergonomically correct shaped aluminium toe cap has a spacious fit that allows place for the toes to move e.g. when kneeling, and provides additional protection of the little toe and the big toe.

Textile nail protection

Nail protection made of special fibers. The nail protection is certified under EN ISO 20 345, and complies with the demands for S3-footwear. The advantage is that the footwear is more flexible and gives better protection in warm and cold conditions, which gives a high comfort degree for the wearer.

Steel mid-sole protection

The sole of the footwear is equipped with a thin steel plate, which prevents nails and sharp objects from penetrating the shoe and foot. Steel mid-sole ­protection has been tested in accordance with norm: EN ISO 12568.

Stabilising shank

The oblong standard shank is made of a stiff nylon material. The shank stabilises the central part of the foot and ensures that the foot bends at the right place.

Non-marking sole – no scuff marks

Look for this symbol if you want to be absolutely sure that your footwear does not leave marks on the floor. Footwear with this symbol is provided with a sole of PU/PU, which leaves no scuff marks.

PU/TPU sole material, resistant to 120°C

The comfort sole is made of PU and the sole is made of TPU. The soles are resistant to 120°C. TPU is a thermoplastic material with a very high wearability. All MASCOT PU/TPU soles are oil and petrol resistant.

PU/PU sole material, resistant to 140°C

Comfort soles as well as running soles are made of PU. The soles are resistant to 140°C. PU is a foam material, which is very shock-absorbing and slip-resistant. All MASCOT PU/PU soles are oil and petrol resistant.

PU/rubber sole material, resistant to 300°C contact heat

The comfort sole is made of PU and the running sole is made of rubber. Rubber is very heat resistant and can resist temperatures up to 300°C contact heat. All MASCOT PU/rubber soles are oil and petrol resistant as well as resistant to certain chemicals.

Shock-absorbing comfort sole

All of MASCOT’s comfort soles are shock-absorbing in the entire sole. This provides good walking comfort.

Scuff cap, suitable for working on the knees

A scuff cap is an extra toe reinforcement on the outside of the upper leather. The injected toe reinforcement increases durability significantly, which prolongs the lifetime of the footwear. The footwear is suitable for kneeling work.

Ladder grip

A sole edge under the sole prevents slippage on the ladder.

Ankle protection

The wearer’s ankle is protected against blows from the side by MASCOT's specially developed protection pad at the ankle bone on the inner and outer side of the footwear.
