A hard hat or face and ear protection is essential for many jobs. We at Donegan's have a wide range of offers for your security.
Head protection is recommended and often prescribed for many jobs with power tools . There are several aspects to head protection: A robust protective helmet protects the head from falling branches, twigs or objects. A face shield helps to prevent injuries to the face from blown up chips or stones. Hearing protection is particularly recommended when working with petrol-powered devices.
The following applies in principle: We recommend wearing the personal protective equipment specified in the operating instructions when using any of our power tools. Depending on the application, this includes protective goggles, hearing protection, hard hats and much more.
A forest helmet provides comprehensive protection for the head. Therefore it always consists of a plastic helmet in a set with hearing protection and face protection. In this way, a forest helmet offers protection for the entire head area. This significantly minimizes the risk of injury when working in the forest.
At Donegan's we supply helmet sets which are as light as possible, but still very stable, making them comfortable to wear. The visor protects against wood splinters flying around, which can occur during sawing work. It consists of a transparent plastic disk, a robust wire mesh or fine nylon fabric. A woven face protection is less sensitive than a pane, which is more prone to scratches. Acrylic glass, on the other hand, can serve as a splash guard. Forest helmets have hearing protection that protects your ears from harmful noise emissions.
So that your hearing is safely protected from unpleasant noise, it is advisable to wear hearing protection for certain motorized devices. You can find out whether hearing protection is recommended for your device in the operating instructions. In any case, employers are obliged to provide their employees with suitable hearing protection as soon as the noise exposure reaches a sound level of 85 dB (A). The safety requirements of the European standard EN 352 must be met.
We offer a wide range of hearing protectors for working with motorized devices such as chainsaws or consaws . The sound insulation according to the EN 352 standard is specified in relation to three frequency ranges: (H) stands for high, (M) for medium and (L) for low frequencies. The attenuation value, specified as SNR, describes the difference between the actual volume and the volume that is achieved with hearing protection and reaches the eardrum.
Ear defenders or ear plugs effectively dampen the sound level and thus the noise emissions of the motorized devices. The result: engine work is quieter for the ear - regardless of whether you opt for hearing protection bars or ear plugs.
