Type A Chainsaw Trousers Explained
Unlike Type C chainsaw trousers with all-round protection, type A chainsaw trousers protect the front of the legs, suitable for ground workers and firewood cutters.
Type A chainsaw trousers are more lightweight, providing ease of movement and comfort especially in hot conditions.
They can be worn over traditional workwear or as a pair of ordinary trousers.
Class 1 or Class 2?
Class 1 products are tested with a chainsaw speed of 20m/s while class 2 products at 24m/s. For instance, if a piece of clothing can resist a chainsaw moving at a speed of 20 m/s, then it is classified as Class 1.
