The personal protective equipment for the forestry industry, aka PPE Forestry, is now becoming even safer. Drawing on the results of a major study, a new standard governing work clothing will come into force on 1 May 2016; high visibility orange will be changing to bright pink. Millions of foresters and woodsmen are now facing a race against time to equip themselves for the new standard.
Anyone who works in the forest or the garden wearing STIHL protective clothing knows all too well that a job well done leaves cut-protection clothing soiled. Resin and grass stains, soil and dust in particular cling to cut-protection trousers.
Our goal was to develop a premium forestry work suit using state-of-the-art textile engineering that lives up to the necessary practical requirements, which is why we applied the same painstaking attention to detail and innovative standard to developing the ADVANCE X-TREEm suit as we do to our power tools.
If you work with powerful tools and other motorised devices, you need effective, safe protective equipment to keep you safe and sound when you are sawing, cutting, chopping and trimming.
