MASCOT Pictograms for Safety Footwear
MASCOT’s safety footwear has a number of symbols that make it simple for you to get an overview of the footwear’s properties and features. Take a closer look at the meanings of the various symbols here.
Aluminum Toe Cap
The purpose of the toe cap is to protect the toes against external blows and pressure. The cap has been tested and can resist blows and pressure of 200 joules.
Steel Toe Cap
The purpose of the toe cap is to protect the toes against blows and pressure. The cap has been tested and can resist a pressure of 200 joules (EN 12568).
Composite Toe Cap
The purpose of the toe cap is to protect the toes against external blows and pressure. The cap has been tested and can resist blows and pressure of 200 joules (EN 12568). The composite toe cap does not contain metal. As composite is not thermally conductive it provides comfort in cold and warm environments.
TPU Toe Reinforcement
The TPU reinforcement on the toe is an extra sewed on reinforcement on the outside of the upper leather. The reinforcement increases durability significantly, which prolong the lifetime of the footwear.
Footwear with this symbol contains no metal. The midsole, toe cap and eyelets are entirely metal-free. As such, the footwear is very useful, for example, in airports.
Scuff Cap, Suitable For Working On The Knees
A scuff cap is an extra toe reinforcement on the outside of the upper leather. The injected toe reinforcement increases durability significantly, which prolongs the lifetime of the footwear. The footwear is suitable for kneeling work.
The wearer’s ankle is protected against blows from the side by MASCOT’s specially developed protection pad at the ankle bone on the inner and outer side of the footwear.
A sole edge under the sole prevents slippage on the ladder.
Stabilizing Shank – ST
The oblong shank is made of a stift nylon material. The shank stabilizes the central part of the foot and ensures that the foot bends at the right place.
Stabilizing and Shock Absorbing Shank
The specially developed multifunctional shank is made of a stiff nylon material. The shank stabilizes the middle part of the foot and makes the footwear bend in the right position. This shank includes a small cushioning pad, which is shock absorbing. The position of the shank ensures that the heel is in constant contact with this cushioning area, which provides a good foothold and back relief.
Shock-Absorbing Comfort Sole
All of MASCOT’s comfort soles are shock-absorbing in the entire sole. This provides good walking comfort.
Oil/Petrol Resistant Sole
The sole is oil and petrol resistant and resistant to certain chemicals.
Steel Mid-Sole Protection
The sole of the footwear is equipped with a thin steel plate, which prevents nails and sharp objects from penetrating the shoe and foot. Steel mid-sole protection has been tested in accordance with norm: EN ISO 12568.
Textile Nail Protection
Nail protection made of special fibers. The nail protection is certified under EN ISO 12 568, and complies with the demands for S3-footwear. The advantage is that the footwear is more flexible and gives better protection in warm and cold conditions, which gives a high comfort degree for the wearer.
Non-Marking Sole – No Scuff Marks
