Best Chainsaw Gloves
Wednesday, 2 May 2018
If you operate in forestry or a related industry, the chainsaw will no doubt be one of your most trusted and effective tools. At the same time, you'll be acutely aware that a chainsaw can cause life-changing injuries if it is not handled properly and the right protection is not used. It's highly important that all chainsaw operators wear appropriate chainsaw gloves to protect their hands.
How Do Chainsaw Gloves Work?
All chainsaw protection ultimately works by jamming up the chainsaw mechanism and preventing it from running. Chainsaw gloves utilise special fibres that are drawn out in a cut situation and wrap around the chainsaw's sprocket, locking it up and preventing serious injury. All chainsaw gloves must meet the EN 381 standard, which tests this capability. Please see the video below for a practical demonstration of chainsaw protection in gloves.
