SawStop saws are built to last, to cut, and to protect. SawStop minimises injuries by stopping the blade within five milliseconds of contact. That is ten times faster than a car’s airbag. Ten times faster than your reflexes can respond to danger.

Each strut is moved in tandem with a series of flat steel cross bars flexible enough to absorb impacts and durable enough to ensure long-lasting smooth operation.
