STEEL TOE

All Carolina Work Boots that carry this symbol are boots that meet, or exceed, the ASTM Standard for Compression and Impact Testing rating of I-75/C-75. This means that worker's feet will be protected in the workplace from any heavy objects that might be dropped onto, or that might roll over, the feet. 

 

COMPOSITE TOE 

All Carolina Work Boots that carry this symbol have a Non-Metallic, Composite Safety Toe that meets the same exact ASTM Standards, for compression and impact testing, as steel toe boots. Composite Toe work boots are lighter than Steel Toe but offer the same exact protection.

 

ALUMINUM TOE 

All Carolina Work Boots that carry this symbol have an Aluminum Safety Toe. They weigh much less than steel toe boots, but they still meet the same rigid ASTM Safety Standard I-75/C-75 for compression and impact. This means that these safety toe boots will help prevent injuries from heavy objects that may drop, or roll, across the feet.

 

CARBON COMPOSITE FIBER TOE 

All Carolina Work Boots that carry this symbol have a Carbon Fiber, Non-Metallic Safety Toe. Carbon Fiber Toes offer excellent protection on the job, meeting the same standard ASTM rating for impact and compression as steel toe boots. They protect feet from heavy objects that might roll over, or drop down, onto the feet.

 

ELECTRICAL HAZARD (EH) RATED 

All Carolina work boots that carry this symbol are Electrical Hazard (EH) Rated and tested by an independent lab to "...withstand applications of 18,000 volts at 60hz for one minute without leakage." Per OSHA: EH Rated boots are only supplemental.

Electrical Workers need Primary Forms of Protection per Standards:29 CFR 1910.137; 29 CFR 1910.269(l); and 29 CFR 1926.950(c).

ELECTROSTATIC DISSIPATIVE (SD)

All Carolina Boot footwear that carry this symbol have a special sole that will absorb and then neutralize any loose electrons, by sending them safely into the floor. Per OSHA standards: any footwear marked ESD is considered specialty footwear designed for employees who work around flammable liquids and products, or where static discharge may adversely affect sensitive computer equipment, electronics and circuitry boards.

3M THINSULATE

Footwear that provides varying levels of protection against the cold depending on the amount of insulating fabric used. Thinsulate™ uses microfibers that trap dead air but do not absorb water, helping to keep feet warm even in damp conditions. Thinsulate™ is a trademark of 3M.  

WATERPROOF SCUBALINER 

All Carolina boots that carry this symbol have Scubaliner Waterproofing Technology. The Scubaliner is an internal membrane that relies on science to keep feet dry. Tiny holes in the membrane allow smaller air molecules to get through, while larger water molecules are too big to pass through into the boots.

 

STEEL SHANK

A thin piece of metal built between the insole and outsole of the boot that helps provide stability, structure and support.

 

NON-METALLIC SHANK

A composite alternative to a steel shank, with the stability, structure and support you need. Ideal for worksites with metal detectors at access points so you can work without repeatedly setting off the metal detector.

SLIP-RESISTING OUTSOLES (SR) 

Carolina’s Slip resisting outsoles are designed and constructed with materials that will  meet the standard for slip resistance.
