All Garsport footwear are produced according to the EEC instructions 89/686 dated 21st December 1989 or Regulation UE 2016/425.
Our footwear can comply with EN ISO 20345:2011 or UNI EN ISO 20345:2012 norm that fix detailed lists of safety footwear with resistance of a steel toe cap at 200 J. It also fixes all the basic requirements of the products and the additional ones.
Shoes that comply with the above mentioned norms, also define the standards for safety footwear EN ISO 20347:2012, UNI EN ISO 20347:2012 for professional use
The basic requirements can be summarized as follows:
SB – PB – OB
shoe with basic requirements
• S1 – P1 – O1
like SB/PB/OB integrated by heel area closed, antistatic properties, energy absorption of heel
• S2 – P2 – O2 like S1/P1/O1
integrated by water penetration and absorption
• S3 – P3 – O3 like S2/P2/O2
integrated by resistance to perforation and contoured sole
• S4 – P4 – O4
antistatic properties, energy absorption of heel region
• S5 – P5 – O5 like S4/P4/O4 integrated by resistance to perforation and contoured sole.
The sole with the highest grip in the world!
It is estimated that the 23% of the accidents at work are caused by slipping and consequent falls, which lead to an average of more than 200,000 absences from work every year, for a total of 8.7 million of working days lost each year. A huge amount, that many times is not taken properly into account.
For this reason, Garsport has created a range of products dedicated to the agri-food sector, which is characterised by an outsole with rubber inserts featuring an exceptional resistance to slipping, and that guarantee the maximum safety on all the types of surfaces, even the most insidious ones. Thanks to the collaboration with “SSR Tecnology”, who has patented this special type of insert applied to our innovative monodensity polyurethane injected outsole, the new PU/SSR outsole hits a new and extremely high level of safety and a grip
which was unthinkable till now.
