Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements to be used to assess the resistance of gaiters to cutting by hand-held chain saws and other properties. A requirement for the strength of underfoot straps of gaiters is also included. This European Standard is applicable to gaiters used together with safety footwear according to EN 345:1992 and EN 345:1992/A1 with a metallic toecap, because gaiters offer only partial protection against chain saw cutting. Gaiters according to this European Standard are not intended for use in situations where there is a significant risk of tripping such as tree climbing or in forests. The test methods associated with the requirements in this European Standard are given in EN 381-8.
