As a global chainsaw specialist, Clogger chainsaw protection is tested and certified by a number of third party agencies. We focus on exceeding the standard rather than just meeting it.

2. North America
Clogger chainsaw protective garments are certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to ASTM F1897-20 for USA and to ASTM F3325-20 for Canada.

4. Other Standards
Clogger’s fire resistant ranges Arcmax and Wildfire comply with additional standards.
For arc protection complies with NFPA Code 70E 130.7(11) and ENA NENS 09-2014 for arc protection. The outer fabric is rated to 11 cal/cm2 according to ASTM F1959 for arc resistance and passed EN ISO 15025: 2000 for fire resistance
For retroreflectivity, the Arcmax range complies with ANSI 107:2015; AS/NZS 1906.4:2010.
5. The Ongoing Certification Process
Product certification to chainsaw protective standards by these internationally renowned companies is your assurance that each garment is made to the same strict specifications as those garments originally submitted for testing. To gain certification status, requires the demonstration of an ongoing testing procedure, along with regular audits to check documentation and other internal processes.
All this assures you that the product you purchase meets and exceeds the requirements set out by the regulatory standards.
