STIHL Safety: Facts On High-Tech Fibres

At STIHL, safety is at the forefront of everything we do. That's why STIHL offers an extensive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) product range of functional protective clothing and practical accessories to help you be as safe as possible when using our equipment.

Premium, high-tech fibres are a key element of STIHL's PPE gear. These are long, thin and most importantly, cut resistance fibres that will help prevent injuries when on the construction site, felling a tree or in the garden.

When a chainsaw comes into contact with trousers with cut protection, the chain teeth rip out the long, tough fibres which then wrap themselves around the chainsaw's drive in a matter of milliseconds, helping to stop the movement almost immediately.

All STIHL PPE equipment is rigorously tested and comply with the UK's PPE material standard as you will see from the diagram in our catalogues. In fact, STIHL only offer clothing that has been officially approved.
