Cleanroom shoes are work shoes designed for use in cleanrooms and designed to prevent static electricity and dust generation. Clean room shoes are usually used in conjunction with work clothes (clean room wear) with similar measures to more effectively control static electricity and dust emissions.
Cleanroom shoes range from sandal-like shoes to boot-like shoes that cover a wide area from the soles to the knees. The cleanliness of the cleanroom shoe depends on the type that can be used, so it is necessary to select and use appropriate a cleanroom shoe.
Cleanroom shoes are used in operating rooms and other sites where bacterial contamination is not tolerated. It is known that bacterial contamination is often caused by airborne particulates. The introduction of cleanroom shoes prevents the generation and adhesion of particulate matter, thereby avoiding the risk of bacterial contamination.
Cleanroom shoes must have low dust emission to avoid becoming a source of dust, and electrostatic properties to prevent the adhesion of particulate matter.
Shoes are one of the main sources of dust emission during walking in clean rooms. Therefore, controlling dust emissions from shoes is an important issue in controlling cleanliness.
To prevent the introduction of particulate matter, air showers are often installed in the front rooms of clean rooms. Air showers blow air to remove particulate matter off clothing and other objects. However, if static electricity is generated on clothes, the particles scattered by the wind may adhere to them again.
To solve this problem, cleanroom shoes are made of conductive materials. They are also equipped with an antistatic mechanism that releases static electricity from the soles to the floor surface. These anti-static measures make cleanroom shoes more resistant to the adhesion of fine particles than ordinary shoes.
