Carhartt’s Carter Rugged Flex Waterproof S3 Pull On Safety Boot (F702935) is designed for workers who need a perfect fit without sacrificing safety, durability, or style. ‘S3’ is a safety footwear certification that indicates the boots have met certain safety standards established by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), and provide protection against a wide range of hazards, including water penetration, sharp objects, and slippery surfaces.
A steel or composite toe cap, an antistatic sole, energy absorption in the heel region, and resistance to fuel oil are also requirements of S3 certification. Additionally, S3 certified safety footwear must have a water-resistant upper, a puncture-resistant midsole, and a cleated outsole for enhanced grip. The Carter Rugged Flex Waterproof S3 Pull On Safety Boot meets all of these requirements while looking great, and provides protection and durability for tradespeople.
An inbuilt fiberglass safety toe is lightweight yet robust enough to provide protection against falling objects and other potential hazards on the construction site. Featuring the company’s Rugged Flex technology, this flexible boot makes it easier to move around on the job site, providing the necessary suppleness to work efficiently. The Storm Defender waterproof breathable laminated membrane and Spotex waterproof membrane (WR) keep your feet dry and comfortable even during heavy rain or snow.
The hydro-treated full-grain leather, combined with a water-repellent synthetic padded collar and TPU abrasion toe cap, ensures that these boots are both sturdy and durable. The mesh lining allows your feet to breathe, reducing moisture and odours for greater comfort.
The Carter Safety Boot also features a removable, fully cushioned footbed and has antibacterial, thermo-regulating, and antistatic properties, keeping your feet fresh and comfortable all day. The anti-penetration G zero textile plate protects your feet from sharp objects, while the polyurethane injected midsole and lightweight stability shank reduce fatigue and provide excellent support during long workdays.
The Vibram outsole is a high-performance, durable brand with excellent traction, grip, and abrasion resistance, making it suitable for all kinds of outdoor terrain. The rubber outsole has anti-static, oil resistance, and heat resistance up to 300C° (HRO), heat insulation (HI), and slip resistance (SRC), providing maximum protection against slips, falls, and other hazards out on site. The boots meet both AS/NZS 2210.3:2009 and EN ISO 20345:2012 (S3) standards.
