EN 381-9

Gaiters that comply with the EN 381-9 standard provide protection against hand-held chainsaws. They protect your feet and often also the lower part of your legs while working with a chainsaw.

Protective gaiters

The protective gaiters must be worn on top of safety boots that are certified to EN ISO 20345.

Because safety boots have a steel nose, there may be a gap in the chainsaw protective covering surface, but it mustn’t exceed more than 14 mm from the front end of the boot. The minimum height must be 200 mm and distance gaiter-ground maximum 25 mm.
