If you’re going to use a chainsaw, you need safety equipment. However, if you are safe, careful, and cautious, you need not ever use it. In an ideal world all the necessary chainsaw safety procedures will result in the blades of the saw coming no closer to you than they absolutely need to be. However, we do not live in an ideal world. Humans are fallible and one wrong move could lead to you painting the town red in the worst kind of way. So how do our brave arborists protect themselves from the unforgiving blades? Chainsaw trousers. These fine pieces of engineering can stop the blades of a chainsaw dead before anything else ends up dead. So how do they work? Chainsaw trousers are packed full of super-strong ballistic fibres known as “Aramid” fibres. When the chainsaw meets the outer layer, these fibres are drawn out of the trousers and into the engine of the chainsaw, causing a jam. The chainsaw will then stop and prevent any more damage being done to the user. So, in the strictest sense, chainsaw trousers are not resistant to chainsaws. Rather they are designed to stop the chainsaw before any serious damage can be done. We wouldn’t recommend you test it on your own leg mind…

Another Great One...
At the end of the Summer, we spent a very warm day filming the Browns Tree Management team working on a Pine tree removal. The featured products include the Breatheflex Pro Hi-vis trousers and Scafell Lite boots.
The Arborflex 2 in 1 trousers are not just for tree work. With the outer skins being able to be worn as a standalone trouser, they could just be the perfect trouser to head out for a hike, bike or rec climb in.
