Cut protection trousers protect the legs against injuries during work with a chainsaw. Tested according to EN 381-5, cut protection class 1, form A, the trousers protect, at a chain speed of up to 20 meters a second, where they should: from the hips to the ankle, on the front side of the cut protection trousers, between the outer fabric and the lining, a multilayer structure of loosely weaved, very long and fine, tear-resistant threads have been incorporated. As soon as the chain of the chainsaw cuts the outer material, it gathers the threads of the cut protection insert. These wrap around the drive wheel of the chainsaw and jam it. The Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik (The Advisory Board for Forestry and Forest Technology) tests the cut protection trousers in accordance with the EN Standard 381-5. After successful tests, they go on to field testing. For this, professional forest workers wear the trousers in yearlong continuous operation and subsequently evaluate them. If the trousers perform successfully here, they obtain a FPA recognised verdict and a KWF professional stamp.
