Electrostatics – Standard test methods for specific applications footwear

This part of EN 61340 describes a test method for determining the electrical resistance of footwear used in the control of electrostatic potential on people. This standard is suitable for use by the manufacturer of footwear as well as the end user.

Electrostatic conductive footwear

Footwear as tested by the method described in this standard with an electrical resistance of .

Electrostatic dissipative footwear

Footwear as tested by the method described in this standard with an electrical resistance of .

Floor/footwear system used for primary grounding – ESD Standard EN 61340

Occupational and safety shoes standard – EN ISO 20344 to EN ISO 20347.

The level of charge generated is inuenced by atmospheric humidity.

 

en20347

The International Standard species basic and additional (optional) requirements for occupational footwear that is not exposed to any mechanical risks (impact or compression).

 

en 13287

This European Standard species a method of test for the slip resistance of conventionally soled safety, protective and occupational footwear. It is not applicable to special purpose footwear containing spikes, metal studs or similar.

The item of footwear to be tested is put on a surface, subjected to a given normal force and moved horizontally relative to the surface. The frictional force is measured and the dynamic coecient of friction is calculated.

If the outsole passes both the ceramic tile test (SRA) and the steel oor test (SRB) it is marked as SRC.
