Safety Footwear

Eye protection is essential when performing tasks such as grinding, descaling, cutting, etc. Splinters in your eye are painful and can cause permanent damage; wearing safety spectacles can easily prevent this. North Safety Products offers a complete range of modern safety spectacles and goggles.

Cross Section

1. Steel Toecap
Toecaps are manufactured from treated steel which is resistant to a force of 200 joules, thus providing protection against injury caused by impact and compression. All styles are now fitted with the new ergonomically rounded, wider fitting steel toecap, offering greater space and comfort, whilst maintaining the highest standards of safety.

2. Carbon Fibre Toecap
Manufactured from Carbon Fibre and resistant to a force of 200J. Properties are the same as the steel toecap properties. This toecap does not conduct or retain heat and is also transparent under x-rays.

3. Steel Midsole
Safety footwear is available with an optional stainless steel midsole for use in work environments with a high penetration risk from sharp objects such as broken glass. The steel midsole is resistant to a 130kg nail driven force.

4. Anti-Static Midsole
The footwear range is fitted with carbon-impregnated midsoles for protection against electrical shocks and burns.

5. Double Density Polyurethane Sole
The direct-injected double density, polyurethane sole used in almost all the footwear provides exceptional comfort, while remaining lightweight and extremely durable. The sole is resistant to acids, alkalis, oil, petrol, solvents and extreme heat (up to 90°C).

6. Full Leather Upper
All footwear has full leather uppers treated for resistance to a wide spectrum of harmful substances commonly found in the industrial work environment.

7. Vamp Lining
The boots and shoes feature a highly absorbent full vamp lining to ensure comfortable and dry feet throughout the day.

Shoe Size Measurement

Your feet change during your lifetime so to make sure you get the best possible fit, we suggest you follow the simple directions below.

Get someone to help you. Stand upright, with the correct spinal balance, and both feet comfortably next to each other. Place one foot at a time on a piece of paper and get someone to draw the outline around the foot using a standard pencil. Take special care to hold the pencil at a 90-degree angle to the paper, and maintain consistency throughout the outline. Ensure the pencil maintains contact with the foot at some point along the pencil shaft. For safety shoes wear socks.

Reduce the total length of the foot outline by the thickness of the pencil that was used to draw the outl ine. Half of the pencil thickness must be reduced at the back of the outline (heel), and at the front of the outline (toes). To make things less complicated, the sketch has been reduced at the back only, but by the amount of twice the half of the pencil thickness.

At the toe end, draw a horizontal line at the further most point of the longest toe. This can be either the first (big toe), or the second, or even the third toe. The longest toe will determine the actual length of the foot (Sketch point 2). Increase the overall length of the foot by one size, 8.46mm (Sketch point 3).

This toe extension is necessary to allow to-and-fro movement of the foot inside the shoe whilst walking. With a tape measure, measure the length from point 1 to point 3. This is the correct shoe size length.
