Tiger master is safety footwear manufacturer in china. Meanwhile, we are also a professional brand for personal protective equipment (PPE), especially in the fields of safety gloves, working garments, helmets, safety vest, safety harness, rain coat/suit, traffic products etc.
Tiger Master as a safety shoes company we have to take a number of factors in account. Slip resistant soles however are one of the most vital elements in safety footwear, also according to the EN ISO 20345 standard every safety footwear must have at least one type of slip resistant sole.
Slipping, tripping and falling are the main causes of accidents on the work floor. They often cause serious injuries to installers, construction workers, plumbers, oil workers and ambulance personnel. This leads often more than three days of absence at work.
Tiger master offers a wide selection of shoes with an outsole that exceeds the generally applicable European slip resistance standards by far. As a result, you minimize the risk to trip or slide on a slippery surface.
Almost every Tiger master safesty shoes are provided with an SRC certified slip resistant sole, meaning the slip resistance of the sole was tested on a ceramic tile wetted with a dilute soap solution and on a smooth steel plate with glycerol. Tiger master soles pass both tests with glance and do not only fulfill the minimum standards (SRA/SRB), but exceed them remarkably.
Make sure you’re aware of the degree of slip resistance below your feet, accidents are expensive! All Tiger master products are tested in laboratory conditions to be granted with a slip resistant rating. However, there are shoes out there described as ‘slip resistant’ or ‘improved grip performance’ that haven’t been formally tested. You can be 100% sure the safety footwear is slip resistant when you identify a slip resistant rating SRA, SRB or SRC.
SRA slip resistant soles are tested on a ceramic tile wetted with dilute soap solution.
SRB slip resistant soles are tested on smooth steel with glycerol.
SRC slip resistant soles pass both SRA and SRB slip resistance tests.
It’s important to understand the performance of an outsole in terms of slip resistance. Slip resistant sole testing is the science of measuring the coefficient of friction (or resistance to slip accidents) of flooring surfaces. To assess a slip resistant sole, a reliable, thoroughly researched (in interlaboratory studies) friction test method must be used, and a minimum safety criterion is needed to apply to the results.
