FO Resistance of the sole to fuel oil Increase in volume <12%
CR Resistance of upper to cutting Factor ≥ 2.5
AN Ankle protection ≤ 10 kN
* under test conditions specified in EN ISO 20344:2011

Your footwear may be marked with one or more symbols indicating characteristics in addition to Occupational Basic requirements. Alternatively the footwear may be marked with one of the following codes:

OB Basic requirements
01 OB + Closed seat region
Antistatic properties (A)
Energy absorption of seat region (E)
02 O1 + Resistance of upper to water penetration and absorption (WRU)
03 O2 + cleated sole
Penetration resistant midsole (P)

The footwear will also be marked with the symbols SR A-B-C to confirm that it also meets the requirements of slip resistance according to the Standards EN ISO 20344:2011 and EN ISO 20347:2012, using one of the 3 performance levels corresponding to the following table:

NOTE: the sole normally achieves maximum adherence after the new footwear has been in “run in” for a certain period of time (in a similar way to car tyres) to remove any residual silicon and releasing agents and any other surface irregularities of physical and/or chemical nature.

For the top-range styles Jolly Scarpe Spa has introduced the use of the innovative textile composite anti-perforation insert replacing the old style and traditional metal plates. The new insert, conforming to the standard EN 12568:2010 to assure “zero” perforation with a force of 1100 N, also offers considerable ergonomics and safety advantages: more protective surface, flexibility, insulation, humidity absorption, reduced weight. Warning: no PPE can assure total protection.

Our safety footwear conforms to all the essential requirements specified in the standard EN ISO 20345:2011. They offer a high level of protection against mechanical risks.
In particular, the safety toe cap provides:
- protection against impact and crushing, thanks to an impact resistance of 200 Joule on the toe, with a residual height of 14 mm (size 42)
- protection against crushing, with a compression resistance of 15 KN (approx.1.5 t) with a residual height of 14 mm (size 42)

Other characteristics are listed in following table: each symbol corresponds to an additional, non-mandatory characteristic, and is marked on each shoe that meets the indicated requirements. To find out about the characteristics and performance of your footwear, simply examine your shoes to see which symbols are present and look them up in this table.

Warning: no PPE can assure total protection.

Our safety footwear is designed and produced to assure the suitable protection based on the risk assessment as from the requirements described in the Standard EN 15090:2012.

The standard provides for three types of footwear for firefighters as follows:

Type 1: Outdoor interventions, fire and wildland firefighting; no protection against penetration, no toe protection, no protection against chemical hazards (these properties however can be present as optional)
Type 2: All fire suppression and rescue interventions where protection against penetration, and toe protection are needed, no protection against chemical hazards
Type 3:All fire suppression and rescue interventions where protection against penetration and toe protection are needed, including protection against chemical hazards.

Symbols marked on the footwear according to offered characteristics:

SPECIFIC USES:
FOOTWEAR WITH PROTECTION AGAINST CUTTING BY CHAINSAW - WARNINGS


Some models of footwear offer a specific protection against cutting by chainsaw in accordance with EN ISO 17249:2004 /A1:2007 with relative pictogram

X = class of protection

With specific regard to resistance against cutting by chainsaw, there are 4 different classes of protection to suit different requirements (ref. Test EN ISO 17249:2004 point 5.4):

LEVEL 1: resistance with a saw speed of 20 metres per second
LEVEL 2: resistance with a saw speed of 24 metres per second
LEVEL 3: resistance with a saw speed of 28 metres per second
LEVEL 4: resistance with a saw speed of 32 metres per second

It is important to underline that no personal protective equipment can afford 100% protection against cutting by a chainsaw. Nonetheless, our experience has shown that it is possible to design equipment that offer a reasonable level of protection. Various protective strategies can be employed:
- chain slips on contact, so that it does not cut the material
- fibres accumulate on the chain and in the saw gearbox, causing the chain to stop
- fibres with high resistance to cutting absorb the rotation energy, thereby reducing the speed of the chain.
In many cases, 2 or more of these protective strategies will be applied in the same boot.
It is recommended to select the footwear in line with the chain saw speed. It is important that there is an overlap between the protective material within the footwear and trousers.
