Forestry tools and work aids that have been extensively tested by the Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik e.V. (KWF) in Groß-Umstadt, are awarded the “KWF-Profi” test seal. They meet all the requirements of the latest technical practice, including economy and the standards relating to safety-at-work, ergonomics and environmental compatibility. The tests encompass technical measurements, tests in forestry use and practical surveys. The new “KWF-Profi” test seal replaces the older FPA “acorn” label. For over 50 years the trademark for tested forest technology.
Both the newly launched KWF test seal “STANDARD” and the “KWF-Profi” test seal include a complete utility value test. The “STANDARD” seal of approval is especially for products which set themselves apart from the high demands of professional forestry deployment. In this way an occasional user, such as one acquiring his own firewood, can rely on tested safety.
The “Dreipilz” quality seal is awarded for processing high-grade steels in conjunction with continuous monitoring by the institution for testing and checking (VPA) in Remscheid.
"Tested safety by the institution for testing and checking (VPA) in Remscheid. For more than 50 years, VPA has been intensively involved in testing hand tools."
