Safety toe types
having a wide profile shape to suit your foot and are padded with a rubber or latex cushion liner to ensure toes are comfortable and not in contact with the cap.
All AEGISEC footwear is designed with your work day in mind. Meeting CE and ASTM standards and designed to fit the shape of your foot, you can count on comfort and protection, no matter the toe type you choose.
1. Steel Toe footwear is designed with sturdy steel for ultimate protection from falling objects and workplace hazards.
2. Composite Toe footwear is lightweight and undetectable in electronic security environments. They are non-metallic and non-conductive to heat or cold.
3. Nano Toe footwear has the most advanced and lightest toe caps available. Made using carbon nanotube technology,
they are thinner than a composite toe cap for added comfort. Nano Toes are non-metallic and non-conductive to heat or cold.
Puncture and Penetration Resistance
Puncture resistant footwear provides protection against sharp objects often found on the floor of a work place.
This type of technology includes a steel or composite plate that is positioned within the midsole to protect you from the dangers of stepping on objects such as nails or screws.
AEGISEC provides puncture resistant insoles (Kevlar, etc.) that can be placed underneath the insole of any shoe to make the shoe puncture resistant by OSHA standards.
The soles of slip resistant shoes reduce the slickness of surfaces that could cause a fall or accident. Slip resistant outsoles use materials and surface patterns to maximize the grip of your shoe against wet and oily surfaces.
Metatarsal guards protect the top of the foot from injuries sustained by heavy items falling, dropping, or rolling onto the top of the foot. Provides increased protection against the risk of impact and crush injuries.
Metatarsal guards coupled with safety toe caps offer complete fore foot protection. Metatarsal guards can be internal or external, and made out of rigid plastics, rubber, hinged or solid metal.
Anti-Fatigue Technology is found in many types of safety footwear. It functions similarly to anti-fatigue floor mats found in work stations where employees must stand on their feet constantly.
Foot Beds: There are three different classifications of foot beds in terms of foot arches: High Arch, Medium Arch, and Low Arch. While most shoes contain medium arches,
Linings in the inner portion of shoes are used to aid in water proofing and insulation. Waterproofing Liners: This type of liner including Gortex®, Drylex®, and other water proofing membranes aids in keeping water out, keeping sweat away from the foot until the shoe is removed, and allows for more breathability.
The “upper” of a shoe is the material that covers all outside portions of the shoe. Everything you see by looking straight down at your shoes can be considered the “upper”. This outer portion can be made of leather, synthetic leather, or mesh and other textile.
Removable insoles allow for the accommodation of individual footwear needs. AEGIS’s does this by providing a variety of replacement insoles, so that you can have the most comfortable safety footwear.
Massages feet as you walk, offering ultimate comfort and enhancing blood flow to reduce fatigue. all of AEGISEC footwear have removable insoles so that insoles can be changed to better meet your shoe needs.
The most predominant material for safety shoe “uppers”, leather provides durability, breathability, and moisture wicking capabilities that are beneficial to those working in hot conditions.
Synthetic Leather: Manufactured leather, including PU and microfiber, is used most commonly on shoes that require extra abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and water-proofing capabilities.
Several types of outsoles are found in safety shoes to provide different types of protection and comfort. One of the most popular types of outsoles is a duel density outsole, which contains two separate layers. The outer layer is harder and made of rubber to provide durability and slip resistance. The inner layer is made of polyurethane or similar materials to add cushioning. Outsoles often contain different compositions in areas of the shoe in order to make them more flexible across the ball of your foot.
Mesh and textile
Mesh “uppers” provide the most movement and flexibility for your feet, as well as being beneficial to those working in a hot environment by providing enhanced breathability and comfortablity.
Often made of plastic or other hard materials, Heel counters add stability to your foot by aiding in the prevention of rolling ankles and providing support for those often climbing up and down ladders or stairs.
Waterproofing capabilities help to seal the surface of the shoe to keep water from penetrating the shoe, keep your feet dry, even when completely submerged in water. This type of technology provides a high level of protection against water even under tough conditions. Types of water proofing include Gortex®, Drylex®, and other water proofing membranes.
Water Resistant footwear allows for the resisting of water for an extended period of time. This provides protection from water when the shoe comes in contact with it on the surface.
Safety footwear is made abrasion resistant through the use synthetic leather or an added coating to conventional leather. This technology helps to prevent cutting of shoes as well as over all wear-and-tear.
The stability of safety footwear is often increased through the use of a heel counter and strategically placed layers of leather that add to the overall stability of the shoe.
A type of insulating liner, Thinsulate® helps to trap in heat while still allowing moisture to escape. With warm and light weight, Thinsulate® can also be made water resistant through the use of hydrophobic fibers, keeping your feet both warm and dry. AEGISEC Insulated footwear protects against the cold and allows you to tackle tough environments.
AEGISEC heat resistant footwear is designed to be worn in the most extreme environments. Built with heat and flame resistant materials to provide foot protection in temperatures reaching or exceeding 400˚C.
AEGISEC electrical hazard footwear meets CE and ASTM standards. They are designed to protect the wearer against open circuits.
AEGISEC conductive footwear meets CE and ASTM standards. They are designed for use in areas where static build up could be harmful. Not to be used in areas with live electrical circuits.
Minimises the build up of electrostatic charges and provides protection against the risk of spark ignition for such hazards as flammable materials and gases
