CHARNAUD® understands what PPE is required for every type of worker and in every type of working environment. While, in previous blogs, we have tended to focus on jackets, headwear and overalls, it would now be good idea to turn our focus towards an important, but sometimes overlooked part of a worker’s gear: footwear.

The correct shoes are absolutely essential for all professionals, regardless of their specific vocation. In particular, when it comes to those workers who spend their workdays, on their feet, in extreme conditions, exposed to heat, cold, wet weather, electricity or molten metal, a good pair of smelter boots is non-negotiable.

What are Smelter Boots?

Smelter boots are designed specifically for the hot metal smelting industry, welders and other metal workers. When there is the risk of hot, molten metal dripping or splashing onto a worker’s shoes, only the toughest protection will do. Smelter boots are heavy work boots made with rugged leather uppers, extremely hardy rubber soles, and toe caps. They must be made according to strict international standards to withstand molten metals and maintain a steady grip on even the slickest surfaces.
