SIP Protection Chainsaw Gauntlets 2SB4

The SIP Protection Chainsaw Gauntlets feature an extended cuff lined with anti-cut material to provide outstanding protection for the hands and forearms.

Chainsaw safety lining runs from the top of the hand to the end of the cuff, making the SIP Protection Chainsaw Gauntlets suitable for heavy and extended chainsaw use.

The 100% leather gauntlets are also oil and water repellent and use reinforced Kevlar/aramid stitching for added durability. 

Applications of the sip protection chainsaw gauntlets 2SB4

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

  • Tree felling
  • Limbing
  • Bucking
  • Pruning
  • Felling snags
  • Hedge cutting
  • Logging
  • Brushcutting
  • Cutting firebreaks
  • Deadwooding

The gauntlets are also suitable for general horticulture as well as the heavy-duty forestry tasks listed above.


The SIP Protection Chainsaw Gauntlets measure 18cm from the wrist to the end of the cuff, providing protection for more than half of the forearm. Anti-cut chainsaw lining features in the gauntlets from the top of the hand to the end of the cuff and is complimented by extra leather padding on the top of the hand.

The SIP Gauntlets have been tested according to EU regulations governing chainsaw protective clothing – known as EN 381-7 – and scored very highly. The gauntlets achieved a 'Class 1' rating, meaning that they will resist cutting even when in contact with a moving chainsaw up to a chain speed of 20 metres per second. 

The gauntlets are made from 100% full grain leather which varies in thickness between 2mm and 2.2mm and are given a hydrophobic treatment to ensure they are water and oil repellent. Strong Kevlar/aramid stitching is also used to reinforce the seams, with Kevlar's tensile strength more than twice that of nylon and polyester with less elasticity. 

As per EU regulations, gloves must be tested against certain criteria to gain an EN 388 rating. These tests assess a glove or gauntlets' resistance to common mechanical hazards. The SIP Protection Chainsaw Gauntlets achieved the following results:

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

The gauntlets score highly in the abrasion and tearing tests as this is the most common risk associated with forestry machinery.

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.
