EN ISO 11393-6

Garments that comply with the European EN ISO 11393-6 standard provide protection against hand-held chainsaws. The protected area is the upper part of the body. Two types can be distinguished.

Upper body protection

Type A

The two type A images show the design of a chainsaw protective jacket according to standard EN ISO 11393-5:2019.

On both the front and back side of the jacket, the standard defines a minimum surface of protective inlay on the shoulders, arms and chest.

On the front side of the sleeves, the protective inlay must cover a minimum of 80% of the total surface and the non-protected surface from the end of the sleeves must not exceed 70 mm.

Type B

The two images above show the design of a chainsaw protective jacket according to standard EN ISO 11393-5:2019 with additional full front protection.

Chainsaw jackets are more and more used for working on servicing platforms, for occasional use of the chainsaw or in exceptional and dangerous working circumstances. As a consequence, 2 jackets (1SIA and 1SIS) of our product range have additional belly protection on top of the standard in order to provide even more safety.

Basically, conception is the same as a normal standard jacket but protection of the abdomen (see picture) was added.
