Work with the chainsaw only with cut protection pants
Protection trousers are a type of cut resistant clothing which is ideal for any work, particularly for work involving the use of a of a chainsaw. They are primarily intended to protect against cutting injuries in the most endangered leg area. Depending on the type of cut protection trousers, long, thin cut protection fibers have been inserted between the inner and outer trousers all over or at some particular areas.
Cut protection pants prevent injuries caused by chainsaws
When the chainsaw is in contact with the cutting protection pants, the saw chain cuts the upper part of the trousers but then immediately gets caught in the cut protection layer with the individual fibers. These wind around the saw chain and block the drive so that the chain saw immediately comes to a standstill so that the leg area remains unharmed. You can find cut protection pants for any application: for summer or winter use, in a thorn-proof or particularly light variety. In addition, you can choose between leggings, trousers or dungerees. The latter type is represented by the Forest Shield cut protection dungarees which are particulary suited for working with saws. These pants belong to the basic equipment of every forestry worker.
Different protection classes for each chain speed
In addition to the classic pants for men, we also offer pants with a special ladies' cut. All cut protection trousers are divided into different cut protection classes: • Class 0 = 16 m / s Chain speed • Class 1 = 20 m / s Chain speed • Class 2 = 24 m / s Chain speed • Class 3 = 28 m / s. Chain speed tests have shown that cut protection deteriorates with long use! Frequent wearing and washing have an impact on the life span of the cut protection fiber. Cut protection trousers should therefore be replaced by a new pair after a wearing period of 1 - 1½ years.
Cut protection pants can be repaired
You can repair any damage to the outer fabric of your protective pants. For this purpose we offer special repair sets for most of our models. However, should the cut protection fibers of your pants have been damaged, the cut protection pants must be replaced immediately since further cut protection can no longer be ensured in such a state. Please observe that the protective effect of the trousers can be impaired by oil mixtures or chain oil. The protective layers should therefore be kept as clean as possible in order to minimize the risk of a possible cut during forest work.
High wearing comfort thanks to ventilation systems and respiratory activity
In addition to their leg protection function such pants should also offer an excellent wearing comfort so as not to impede work when handling heavy devices. With zipper-adjustable ventilation systems or auxiliary ventilation around the waist as with the Profiforest Forest Trousers Summer it can still be pleasant working in summer under warm or hot weather condition. Protection trousers by our manufacturers Forest Shield, Profiforest and Northforest not only fulfill current FPA safety standards but also provide some extra comfort as well as useful storage space by numerous side and seat pockets. Matching our protective trousers our online store also carries corresponding (cut resistant) jackets and braces.
