What are shoe covers?

Disposable shoe covers save the trouble of taking off shoes for visiting guests and achieve the purpose of an unpolluted environment.

Shoe covers are widely used in electronics, the chemical industry, clean rooms, clean rooms, and other demanding environments. Common disposable shoe covers are non-woven shoe covers, CPE shoe covers, and plastic shoe covers. The function has its own characteristics, there are anti-slip shoe covers, rainproof shoe covers, anti-static shoe covers, etc.

Non-woven shoe covers, the newest environmentally friendly materials, non-woven shoe covers are favored by customers, non-woven shoe covers itself has the function of anti-static, non-woven printing shoe covers, but also anti-slip, practical, beautiful, and generous, and can be printed with the company logo, to achieve a good publicity effect.

For plastic shoe covers, the production process is simple, and the demand is also very large, mostly used in food processing, or general protection environment.

The most outstanding feature of disposable shoe covers is that they are easy to use and have a wide range of applications. The different materials and corresponding functions can be anti-slip, anti-static, and dustproof. And the price is much cheaper compared to non-disposable shoe covers, and handling is also convenient, especially non-woven shoe covers, which can be naturally degradable.

More economical and practical than the one-time use of shoe covers. Suitable for highly clean and dust-free environments, this product can be adapted to 10~10000 level dust-free environments.

Shoe covers in the laboratory

Importance of disposable shoe covers in clean room laboratories

Cleanrooms handle very precise and important testing procedures that require the highest degree of effort in sanitation procedures and quality laboratory practices. Clean rooms are designed to control the amount of particulate matter in the air in the area. They use filters to collect contaminants from the air and do not circulate the air back into the room. Analysts working in cleanrooms must take many precautions to prevent the entry of harmful contaminants, including wearing protective gear.

What is a cleanroom?

Cleanrooms are highly controlled laboratory environments that provide a limited amount of hazardous contaminants in the workspace. A work environment with controlled air contaminants is critical to many laboratory practices. Airborne particles can contaminate and affect the quality of data results or sensitive manufactured products. When using these sensitive methods, it is important to take all protective precautions to ensure the integrity of data and products.

Different types of cleanrooms

There are different classifications of clean rooms. These classifications are differentiated by the number and size of suspended particles per cubic meter of air in the room. Some classifications can operate under more lenient requirements, while others must have strict control policies.

Clean rooms can operate in the range of ISO 1 through ISO 9. ISO 1 signifies a very clean room, while at the other end of the spectrum, ISO 9 is considered satisfactorily clean. ISO 1 has the most stringent requirements for particle size and concentration. In an ISO 1 clean room, no particle can be larger than 5.0µm and particles can be measured with accuracy as low as 0.2µm. ISO 9 clean rooms still have some regulatory requirements, but it is classified as normal room air.

The type of manufacturing required for the product determines the required cleanliness.

ISO 8 is the basic cleanroom requirement

ISO 5 is the minimum requirement for the pharmaceutical industry

ISO 1-4 is the highest and most stringent classification

ISO, the International Standards Organization, lists all procedures, methods and requirements for each cleanroom class. Be sure to review your ISO standards to ensure compliance.

Shoe covers

Shoe covers are critical when keeping clean rooms clean. If employees are not properly equipped, they may contribute large amounts of particles to the room. Fabric and debris particles may move from their shoes into the air, or they may carry bacteria that could negatively affect the tests performed in the lab.

Shoe covers are required for all the different classes of cleanrooms!

Certain classes of cleanrooms require basic shoe covers, including ISO 6, ISO 7, and ISO 8. Higher-class cleanrooms require you to use boot covers, which provide much greater coverage than standard shoe covers. Check your ISO classification, as each category has different PPE requirements, to make sure you are in compliance.

Shoe covers fit exactly the shoes you are wearing. The elasticity of the top ensures that they stay in place on your shoes. They are made of durable materials such as polyurethane, plastic, latex, or a combination of these components, which makes them durable and tear-resistant. They are waterproof, keeping all dust and debris inside so they won't contaminate your workspace.
Disposable shoe covers
Disposable shoe covers play an important role in running cost-effective, hygienic, and safe cleanrooms. Disposable shoe covers are essential.


By keeping disposable shoe covers, employees can follow standard procedures to put on new covers before entering the clean space. They can then dispose of those shoe covers as they leave the clean room. This is an easy-to-implement procedure that ensures that employees' shoes are not contaminated when they enter the lab.


Disposable shoe covers are cost-effective because they can be purchased in bulk. In addition, no time or materials are required to ensure proper disinfection with reusable shoe covers. Higher-level cleanrooms require clothing to be disposable to reduce the risk of contamination.


Shoe covers can be purchased with or without non-slip tread. The non-slip tread is an important safety item for lab employees because it helps prevent dangerous falls.

Use of shoe covers

a. Disposable shoe covers should have good water resistance and be used on a one-time basis.

b. Shoe covers should be worn when entering a contaminated area from a potentially contaminated area and when entering a negative pressure ward from a buffer room.

c. Disposable shoe covers should be worn within the defined area and removed promptly when leaving the area. They should be replaced promptly if they are found to be damaged.

Precautions for wearing anti-static shoe covers

a. When wearing anti-static shoe covers, you cannot wear insulated woolen thick socks or insulated insoles at the same time. It is prohibited to use when insulated shoes.

b. To use anti-static cloth shoe covers on the anti-static ground to achieve a good effect.

c. Anti-static shoe covers should be used in conjunction with anti-static clothing, but also pay attention to cleaning.

d. Anti-static shoe covers may not be in direct contact with the skin and grounding is not as effective as anti-static shoes, and is only recommended for visitors and other personnel who do not need to contact ESD-sensitive components. If you need to contact ESD-sensitive components then you need to wear anti-static bracelets.

e. Applicable to prevent the human body from static electricity and may cause combustion, explosion, and all the existence of static electricity hazards of the place.
