CLOTHES CAN RESIST TO THE CUTTING CHAINSAW?
VILTOMEXTREME has created, projected and realized, in according to the European Norm EN 381 a particular protectiv cushion, composed by a material whose fibers are released on contact with the mash of the toothed chain of the chainsaw motor.
These fibers disposed on more layers wrap themselves around the chainsaw's pinion, preventing free movements and causing immediate stop, that is well before tha blade comes into contact with skill of the wearer protective clothings.
WHAT ARE THE AREAS OF THE BODY PROTECTES BY CUTTING CHAINSAW?
The norm EN 381, provides different type of protection relating of the different parts of the body: upper body, legs, hands and foots. Regarding the norm feature about protective clothings, there are three type of protection:
A- front protection
B- front and lateral protection
C- total protection
It is also very impotant, if two or plus clothes are weared in the same moment, avoid to expose parts of the body, creating overlapping areas.
CUT RESISTANT CLOTHINGS PROTECTED TO THE 100% BY CHAINSAW?
Until now it doesn't exist any type of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) offering a total protection: the first measure for safety is personal worker training, his professionality and his physical condition.
However, it is demonstrated that these clothes reduce the risk considerably. It is also important choose clothes belonging to the resistant class suitable to the chainsaw speed:
Class 1 = speed up to 20 meters per second
Class 2 = speed up to 24 meters per second
Class 3 = speed up to 28 meters per second
ALL THESE PROTECTION ENCUMBERS CLOTHES?
VILTOMEXTREME Staff, has designed functional and relatively light clothes, particularly suitable for workers in the forestry sector. .
IN CASE OF ACCIDENT WITH THE CHAINSAW, WHAT WE HAVE TO DO?
It is absolutely necessary change the item with an another new, furthermore it is avoid to continue work with a cloth already subcject to the contact with a chainsaw because in that area we don't know any more with certitude if the internal protection is sufficient to maintain an adequate safety. It is also avoid to reinforce the pudding with foreign textile material from the original with which protective cushion is been producted and is also avoid patch cuts previusly caused.
