Every Jalas model has a unique outsole with protective qualities, that keeps you safe while concentrating on your work.
An innovative outsole material that has a unique molecular structure. A pattern of many small suction cups provides the best grip for wet and slippery surfaces. This sole is divided into three areas that follow the various step phases in a natural way.
Durable Nitrile rubber outsole ensures excellent grip on dirt, snow and wet surfaces. The outsole stays soft and flexible - even in very cold conditions. Nitrile is also heat resistant up to 300°C and therefore suitable for work in hot, oily and harsh environments. The sole can also withstand mild chemical contact.
Provides ultimate slip resistance on wet ice. Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber is known for its physical strength, anti-slip properties and ability to resist heat and oil while remaining soft even in very cold conditions. Outsoles with HNBR also contain specially designed gripper lugs that provide excellent grip on ice. There is also a lug that turns blue when the temperature dips below zero to give you indication of slippery conditions. Incorporated into all JALAS footwear with Vibram ® Arctic Grip outsole.
Polyurethane is a material that provides good slip resistance in a broad range of applications. PU outsoles are lightweight, soft, comfortable and extremely flexible.
TPU is a Thermoplastic Polyurethane with high elasticity and wear resistance. TPU outsoles are equipped with a transpiration system patented by IQtex ®, providing a highly breathable and comfortable platform for clean, warm and dry conditions.
ESD is a supplementary test that is sometimes used where it is essential to remove static electricity. The electrical resistance limits of ESD footwear are 100KΩ–35 MΩ and comply with IEC 61340-5-1.
All our safety shoes tested according to EN ISO 20345:2011 conforms to one of the following requirements for slip resistance:
SRA – Footwear resistance to slip on ceramic tile floor/SLS
SRB – Footwear resistance to slip on steel floor/glycerine
SRC – Footwear resistance to slip on ceramic tile floor/SLS and on steel floor/glycerine (SRA + SRB)
Extra rigid design with a stabilizer in the arch that reduces the risk of sprain. Found in shoes with RPU, Nitrile and TPU in the outsole.
