sip protection anti-slip chainsaw gloves 2SA5

The SIP Protection Anti-Slip Chainsaw Gloves feature cut-protection, artery protection and high-grip rubber palms to provide safety and assurance when using a chainsaw.

The SIP Protection Anti-Slip Chainsaw Gloves are 100% leather and are reinforced with Kevlar stitching and extra leather padding across the top of the hand. 

With the help of an elasticated cuff, the water repellent gloves keep the hands warm and dry whilst the reducing the chances of accidents and serious injuries.

applications of the anti-slip chainsaw gloves 2SA5

The SIP Protection Anti-Slip Chainsaw Gloves are suitable for a range of forestry tasks, including:

  • Tree felling
  • Limbing
  • Bucking
  • Pruning

  • Brushcutting

The gloves can also be used for more general horticultural tasks as well as the heavy duty forestry tasks listed above. 

features of the sip protection anti-slip chainsaw gloves 2SA5

The palms of the SIP Anti-Slip Gloves are reinforced with rubber and complimented with a patch of tough leather on the top of the hand. The rubber promotes excellent grip with the leather bringing stability, while dense foam anti-cut inlay features in both hands as well. These attributes combine to mean that the gloves can resist cutting even when in contact with a moving chainsaw, up to a chain speed of 16 metres per second. 

The gloves are made from 100% full grain leather and use strong Kevlar/aramid stitching to reinforce the joints - with Kevlar's tensile strength more than twice that of polyester or nylon.  The wrists cuffs of the gloves are elasticated for comfort and warmth, but also feature artery protection for added security. Furthermore, the gloves have been hydrophobically treated to ensure they are oil and water repellent.

As per EU regulations, gloves must be tested against certain criteria to gain an EN 388 rating. These tests assess a gloves' resistance to common mechanical hazards. The SIP Protection Anti-Slip Chainsaw Gloves scores are as follows:

Resistance to abrasion 3
Blade cut resistance 1
Tear resistance 3
Puncture resistance 2

Chainsaw protection gloves must also carry an EN 381-7 rating. This specifically governs chainsaw gloves, and the SIP Anti-Slip Gloves have gained a rating of Type 'A' Class 0 (resistant up to 16m/s).

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.
