SIP Protection, based in the French Pyrenees, joined Sioen in 2001. SIP is a specialist supplier focussed only on chainsaw protective clothing (EN 381 standard) for arborists foresters, landscapers, lumberjacks, linesmen and tree climbers.
The SIP range includes forestry trousers with added calf protection - to adapt to the requirements of tree climbers, working in extremely tough conditions. The Sip 1SP2 is a great example of the trousers we have to offer.
The SIP chainsaw jackets have recently been upgraded from class 0 to class 1. (That was achieved while actually reducing the weight. This significantly increased the wearer comfort). A great example of one of these jackets is the SIP 1SI5.
Being an end-user oriented company, SIP carefully listens to all comments about chainsaw clothing. Based upon this feedback, they began working towards a single goal: SIP now offers forestry workers the possibly most comfortable and lightest chainsaw trousers. This is done without compromising the quality of the materials nor the lifetime expectations of the product.
New outer fabrics have been developed, new blocking materials have been found and the design has been innovated, not only visually with the colour setting, but by redesigning the trousers: stretch fabrics wherever increased comfort was required, hard fabrics in the most challenged areas and even ventilation mesh fabric for the outflow of hot air.
Hydura® reinforcements: prevents water infiltration with its water-repellent film while being resistant to low and strong brush. This increases the life span of SIP trousers compared to regular chainsaw trousers.
Dyneema® blocking material: a lightweight fabric with high cut resistance and blocking specification.
Pezatec® and Pezaflex®: outer fabrics preferred for their mix of lightweight, resistance and strength.
