Certifications for High-Quality Products


When you are purchasing work boots, you expect a quality level high enough to ensure the protection of your feet. Foot injuries can happen quickly and cause negative long-term repercussions.

That’s why it’s so important to choose work boots that have successfully passed several protection and comfort tests and certifications. This will allow you to have boots protecting you from the risks on the job.

ROYER, a Canadian company and leader in the safety footwear industry, wants to ensure the protection of workers by offering boots that meet the highest safety standards at the international level. The reliability of the ROYER products comes from 85 years of experience. Understanding the challenges of Canadian workers is a priority of ROYER.

That’s why ROYER uses a leading-edge, ISO 17025-certified laboratory to perform tests to certify work boots as CSA compliant.

Three different tests are carried out to ensure the efficiency of the ROYER work boots. Now, let’s see their specific features.

Impact test for protective toe

The impact test checks if a work boot absorbs impacts adequately. To test the protection, the drop tower of the ROYER laboratory simulates a 22.7 kg (50 lb) object falling on the toe of the boot, in which a tube of modeling clay had been inserted where the toes are located.

Once the simulation is completed, another device measures precisely the height of the modeling clay after impact. That will determine if the protective toe is passing the test or not.

Dielectric test

The dielectric test platform is used to control the electric shock resistance of an outsole. As a simulation of a human foot, conducting metallic beads are inserted in the work boot. Then, the work boot is put on a grid under electrical tension.

To pass the dielectric test, no more than one milliampere should have gone through the inside of the boot.

Impact test for metatarsal protection

To test the metatarsal protection of ROYER work boots, the drop tower simulates a 22.7 kg (50 lb) object falling on the top of the boot. The weight drops directly over the metatarsal bones, on the top part of the foot.

The modeling clay inserted in the boot will be thoroughly examined following the impact. This analysis will help determine if the work boot provides adequate protection.

Benefits of the ROYER laboratory

The ROYER laboratory certified ISO 17025 raises the quality and protection standards of their products, and that quality is reflected in the products.

  • Mechanical properties of soles: resistance, comfort, puncture resistance, flexibility
  • Material quality and resistance of the upper: tears, tension, abrasion, color.
  • Bending strength
  • Impermeability of materials
  • Quality and sturdiness of accessories: grommets, Velcro

The superior quality you enjoy when pulling on a pair of ROYER boots originates from the 120+ steps that a boot must go through to be completely assembled.
