It also describes the testing procedure used. Impact resistance for the toe area of footwear. Class 75 pounds for awtm, Class 75 for women, Class 50 pounds for men, and class 50 for men.
Class 75 men and women and Class 50 men and women. A puncture resistant plate should aztm positioned between the insole and outsole and made an integral and permanent part of the footwear.
ASTM F – 05 Standard Specification for Performance Requirements for Foot Protection
Compression resistance for the toe area of footwear. Metatarsal protection is also identified as Class 50 men and women and Class 75 men and women. Footwear worn by male worker which has Class 50 impact resistance and Class 50 compression resistance. The outsole and heel of this footwear is made with non-conductive materials, shock resistant.
Requirements are as follows:. The numbered section at the end of each description provides a reference to the section in ASTM that describes the performance requirements a product must meet before it asm be labeled as protecting against the specific hazard. Zstm saw cut resistance. Footwear need not meet all of the below requirements to conform to ASTM F, but should clearly state which of the requirements the footwear meets.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard astj are not provided as part of the standard. Puncture resistant footwear Footwear which is chain saw cut resistant.
The values given in parentheses are for information only. The ASTM F label uses a specific four-line format to identify the type of footwear and the hazards it protects against:. Compression resistance is classified the same way as impact resistance: Protective footwear which complies to the performance requirement of F issued in Footwear worn by female worker which has Class 75 impact resistance; Class 75 compression resistance, and Class 75 metatarsal impact resistance. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
Footwear conforming to this specification shall meet the performance requirements for the following: Footwear should be designed, constructed, and manufactured so that a metatarsal impact guard is positioned astk over the protective toe cap and extended to cover the metatarsal bone area. The test with the lowest score is the test result applied asrm the footwear classification.
SD footwear should reduce the excess static electricity by conducting the charge from body to ground while simultaneously maintaining a high level of resistance to protect the wearer.
These examples are taken directly from ASTM Puncture resistance of footwear d2413-05. Lines 3 and 4: Footwear should protect the foot area between the toe and lower leg when operating a chain saw. Four classifications of impact resistance are listed: Footwear worn by male worker which has a Class 75 impact resistance and a Class 75 compression resistance.
While a steel f24413-05 is not required, a protective toe cap should be a permanent part of the footwear. A label should include the components listed in the examples shown below.
Footwear should be designed, constructed, and manufactured to provide accidental insulation if accidental contact is made with electrical conductors awtm circuits. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
It is not the intention of this specification to serve as a detailed manufacturing or purchasing specification, but can be referenced in v2413-05 contracts to ensure that minimum performance requirements are met. Requirements are as follows: The ASTM F label uses a specific four-line format to identify the type of footwear and the hazards it protects against: ASTM F covers the minimum design, performance, testing, labeling, and classification requirements, g2413-05 prescribes fit, function, and performance criteria for footwear designed to be worn to provide protection against a variety of workplace hazards that can potentially result in injury.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Footwear may protect against nine categories. The protection provided is described on the label using the abbreviation shown below.
This specification covers the minimum g2413-05, performance, testing, and classification requirements, and asstm fit, function, and performance criteria for footwear designed to be worn to provide protection against a variety of workplace hazards that can potentially result in injury.
ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. The label must list the requirements the footwear meets, as demonstrated by the examples above.
Identifies the specific types of hazards the footwear protects against. This abstract is a brief summary of the f2431-05 standard.
