Below are 3 reasons to visit our well stocked trade counter in Kirkhill Industrial Estate, Aberdeen:

1. Combine Convenience, Comfort, and Compliance

Being located in Aberdeen, our safety footwear outlet is in close proximity to most oil companies and supporting industry partners. This means that you can get your safety footwear without having to travel out of the area and also you can visit the store in person to ensure the best fit and try the products in person. Below are a few of the factors that you should consider when buying safety footwear.

Like any shoes you would wear for leisure or work, safety shoes should be comfortable to avoid any injury and discomfort. Always start by studying the safety rating of the footwear – normally on the inside of the tongue – and check the materials of the soles, the uppers, and the lining. Having a midsole to stop nails penetrating is essential for example and this will generally be S3, SBP or S1P on the tongue label.

If you are wearing steel toe shoes all day long, then comfort factors may lead you to put your own insoles in, but this may not be wise for safety – V12 have a safe answer in their Dynamic Arch insoles as shown in this video:

2. Make Sure Boots Meet EN20345

Staff at our Aberdeen Trade Counter are knowledgable and are able to provide advice and ensure you purchase the correct safety boots with the correct rating and standard. The footwear we stock in Aberdeen is choosen specifically to match the needs of the industries we serve.

Safety boots should always have a level of protection to EN 20345 standard, other factors like the strength of reinforced toe caps according to your needs, the anti-static and grip characteristics are all factors that need to be borne in mind. Don’t risk your feet with low quality footwear of doubtful origin.
