Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following

URL: www .iso .org/iso/foreword .html.

This document was prepared by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) Technical

Committee CEN/TC 162, Protective clothing including hand and arm protection and lifejackets, in

collaboration with ISO Technical Committee TC 94, Personal safety — Personal protective equipment,

Subcommittee SC 13, Protective clothing, in accordance with the agreement on technical cooperation

between ISO and CEN (Vienna Agreement).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 11393-5:2001), which has been technically

revised. The whole document and the Scope have been revised. The main changes compared to the

previous edition are as follows:

— in the Introduction, the term “hand-held chainsaws primarily constructed for cutting wood” has

been added;
— the normative references have been updated;
— terms and definitions have been added;

— a conjunction of the gaiter to a defined boot for test purposes has become mandatory;

— requirements and test methods for ergonomic properties, twisting resistance, the strength of the

attachment system and innocuousness have been added;
— requirements for protective coverage have been changed;
— class 0 has been deleted from the requirements to cut resistance;
— the pre-treatment procedure has been revised.

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International

Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies

casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

Introduction

This part of ISO 11393 forms part of a series concerned with personal protective equipment designed

to protect against the risks arising from the use of hand-held chain-saws primarily constructed for

cutting wood.

No personal protective equipment can ensure a 100 % protection against cutting from a hand-

held chain-saw. Nevertheless, experience has shown that it is possible to design personal protective

equipment which offers a certain degree of protection.
Different functional principles may be applied in order to give protection.
These include:
a) chain slipping: on contact the chain does not cut the material;

b) clogging: fibres are drawn by the chain into the drive sprocket and block chain movement;

c) chain braking: fibres have a high resistance to cutting and absorb rotational energy, thereby

reducing the chain speed.
Often more than one principle is applied.

Protective clothing for users of hand-held chain-saws —
Part 5:
Test methods and performance requirements for
protective gaiters
1 Scope

This part of ISO 11393 specifies requirements and the test methods to be used to assess the resistance

of gaiters to cutting by hand-held chain-saws and other properties. A requirement and a test method for

assessing the strength of underfoot straps of gaiters is also included.

This part of ISO 11393 is applicable to gaiters which are to be used in conjunction with safety footwear

with a steel toecap complying with ISO 20345 design “C” or “D”,. These gaiters shall be designed to be

used only in association with a defined footwear and tested together.

These products are intended mainly to use in combination with a defined orthopaedic footwear.

This part of ISO 11393 is not applicable to gaiters intended for use in situations where there is a

significant risk of tripping such as tree climbing or in forests.
