WORK SHOES: PROTECTION AND COMFORT FOR DIFFERENT AREAS OF APPLICATION
A good stand is important in every job. Depending on the activity, you may need additional protection. That is why we have various comfortable work boots on offer for different purposes and weather conditions : from work shoes to leather boots to rubber boots. These are suitable for forestry, landscape maintenance or fruit growing, but also in private gardens or in road construction.
When working with chainsaws, you should ensure that your feet are adequately protected. This is why we at Donegan's stock a large range of boots with cut protection. Braking nonwovens made of high-tech synthetic fibers are used in our chainsaw boots, which have a retarding effect. Protective boots slow the chain down so that it stops before the cut protection is completely cut. The cut protection insert extends over the entire forefoot, because the most vulnerable areas are the metatarsus and the back of the foot.
Protection class 1 boots ensure cut resistance at a chain speed of up to 20 m / s. With a chainsaw boot of protection class 2 you are protected against injuries up to a running speed of 24 m / s. The most common accidents are caused by contact with the chain. The effects of such accidents can be reduced with the help of STIHL cut protection boots of protection class 1. However, no forest boot can guarantee absolute safety.
Also good to know: we choose cut protection boots which are extremely hard-wearing and are tested for their flexural strength and resistance in a test laboratory. After a standardized recess, they have to withstand 100,000 bends without tearing. In addition, all of our cut protection models meet the requirements of the Euro standard DIN EN ISO 17249 and DIN EN ISO 20345.
All of our safety shoes , safety boots and even our rubber boots have sturdy steel toes that protect your toes from falling objects. Because when working with chainsaws, brushcutters or hedge trimmers, the toes in the foot area are particularly at risk.
Anyone who works on slopes or covers longer distances is well advised to use a lace-up chainsaw boot. They are water-repellent, robust and the natural material helps prevent unpleasant odors. In addition, the breathable inner lining allows air to circulate in the shoe and transports moisture to the outside. For areas of application where protection of the soles of the feet is advisable, chainsaw boots with a steel midsole are available. All shoes and boots are available on www.donegan.ie.
