Steel Toe Cap Safety Boots
Pro’s of Steel Caps
• Higher ‘flat’ protection, making them better for environments with very heavy hazards, such as machinery handling
• High puncture resistance
• They don’t shatter, and contrary to popular myth, they don’t snap, resulting in toe amputation!
• Good value – steel caps are more economical to produce than composite toe caps, so they are often cheaper to buy as well
• Pass ASTM tests, meaning they are considered safe for workers handling electrical components. Having said that, composite toe boots are still considered safer in this regard as they do not conduct electricity.
• Do not weaken over time
