Every day cabin crews suffer from electrical discharges inside the aircraft, this causes discomfort and can become a health risk in the long run. Anti-static shoes are the perfect solution for this problem.
We continuously witness the existence of electrical discharges in frequent everyday activities. In aircrafts, this effect is even more common and dangerous. The aircrafts accumulate electrical charges from static electricity due to the friction between the airplane and the surrounding environment. Since air humidity is extremely low at an altitude between 10 and 50 km, it creates an even more perfect environment for the accumulation of this type of charges.
These electrical charges reside in the equipment inside airplanes, which in turn gets transferred to flight attendants and pilots. The only way for the energy to dissipate safely is through contact with the ground; however, regular shoes don’t allow the this energy to dissipate, which simply gets stored on the body.
At Skypro, the research team is always focused on improving the quality of cabin crew lives through the development of high-tech products that protect and care for crews’ health and safety. For that reason, Skypro developed a technology supported by specific materials with proven anti-static properties and a special shoe construction, which ensures the correct dissipation of electric discharges. Skypro cabin shoes are the perfect footwear to keep airline crews safe.
