If you are looking for safety boots, you will be confronted a tonne of alternatives, but two of the most popular would be composite toe and steel cap boots. If you only have to choose one, which will you pick?
Steel toe cap safety boots and shoes have a heavy-duty steel cover cap across the toes and have protected the toes of countless workers across the globe and are considered the original safety boot.
This type of safety footwear is a newer technology, but it is quickly being the norm as it is able to offer a wealth of benefits as well. Unlike steel cap boots, this is made from non-metal materials, which can include Kevlar, fiberglass, plastic, and carbon fiber, among others.
There is no definite answer with regards to which among the two safety boots should be chosen. At the end of the day, individual circumstances can have an impact on which one should you pick. Steel cap boots will be the perfect choice if there is a high risk of being punctured and if there are dangers from heavy falling objects in the workplace. Composite toe safety footwear, on the other hand, will be a better alternative if you need to pass through a metal detector and if you are working in freezing climates.
