CHAINSAW PROTECTIVE CLOTHING - USER INFORMATION
Chainsaw Clothing - Important Information
All chainsaw protection clothing supplied by ourselves complies with current legislation and European Standards.
Various methods of protection incorporated include:
1. Chain Slipping - on contact, the chain does not cut through the material.
2. Clogging - fibres are drawn with the chain into the drive sprocket and clog chain movement.
3. Chain Braking - fibres have high resistance to cutting and absorb rotational energy, thereby reducing the chain speed.
In many instances, more than one of the above principles are applied.
However, no PPE can offer 100% protection against cutting from a chainsaw, and cannot be a substitute for safe working methods.
Follow safety instructions in the user manuals of all power tools and personal protective equipment.


PPE designed to protect against the risks to users of hand-held chainsaws are marked with the following pictogram, accompanied by a chain speed
classification showing the material has been tested to the respective speed as also shown below:
                                               Class 0: 16 metres/second
                                               Class 1: 20 metres/second
                                               Class 2: 24 metres/second
                                               Class 3: 28 metres/second
