Bekina Boots, the second-largest PU safety boot manufacturer worldwide, has announced its attainment of the ASTM F3445-21 slip resistance certification for its line of safety boots in the United States.

This certification marks an advancement in the company's dedication to upholding standards of safety and performance in occupational footwear. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has recently unveiled ASTM F3445-21, an updated standard that establishes the latest benchmark in measuring slip resistance for safety footwear. This standard surpasses its predecessor, ASTM F3445-18, by incorporating new testing methodologies that closely mimic real-world conditions, thereby offering a comprehensive assessment of a boot's traction capabilities.

Slip Resistance Certification

ASTM F3445-21 is distinguished by its broader applicability for a more reliable evaluation of footwear's slip resistance across diverse surfaces and conditions. For the end-user, this translates to increased safety, informed purchasing decisions and peace of mind, knowing that their footwear is certified to provide protection against slips and falls.

Differences between ASTM F3445-21 and ASTM F3445-18

  • Testing Methodology: The new standard employs a refined testing methodology that better simulates real-world conditions for testing across a wider range of surfaces and contaminants.
  • Reliability: ASTM F3445-21 provides reliable data, allowing manufacturers to fine-tune the design and materials of their products for slip resistance.
  • Applicability: This update broadens the scope of the standard to include a wider variety of footwear so that more products are assessed for their slip resistance capabilities.
