The #981 safety boots are packed with features including:

1. EXTREME APPLICATION SMELTER BOOT

Designed for smelter work with flame retardant leather, flame resistant toe scuff cap protection and compression resistant 8 point Ssoftherm® upper insulation against radiant heat.
Comprehensive internal testing and risk analysis should be completed prior to using these products, as site and operating conditions vary between locations.

2. RUBBER OUTSOLE—300°C HEAT RESISTANT

The outsole is heat resistant to temperatures up to at least 300°C and 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. KEVLAR STITCHING

Kevlar® stitching provides maximum strength and protection against metal splash and immersion.

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.

CARE DETAILS

- First, remove any caked dirt on your boots with a soft bristled brush or damp cloth, and leave your boots to air dry. Please ensure that your boots are away from direct sunlight or any heaters, as they will dry out the leather.

- Apply leather polish, spray or cream to the leather to help maintain your boots. If you are using a polish for the first time, try it on an inconspicuous area of the boot to check whether it alters the colour or appearance.

- If using a polish, apply a small amount of leather cleaner to a polishing cloth or brush and rub onto the shoe in circular motions.
