Cut-Tex PRO Slash Resistant Fabric Now Key Part of Police Officers Uniforms

Members of another Police Force have now been issued with new uniforms partly made out of a high performance cut resistant fabric called Cut-Tex® PRO. In order to protect all officer’s safety, the country’s name cannot be named.

These new protective garments have been manufactured by one of Italy’s leading uniform manufacturers and without question will help save lives in the future.

“Dealing with potentially hostile and intoxicated members of the public is not always easy, and we must do everything to improve their personal safety and reduce the risk of workplace violence related injuries and even death”, says Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, the firm behind Cut-Tex® PRO.

According to Robert Kaiser, the risk of being cut or slashed is real, and the potential consequences can be severe.

“We strongly believe that uniforms, tactical apparel or other work wear should offer appropriate levels of protection for the Radial Artery, Brachial Artery, Carotid Artery, Axillary Artery and the Femoral Artery.”

“The cutting of any of these key arteries can lead to rapid blood loss and subsequent death within a very few minutes or seconds, in extreme cases.”

Cut-Tex® PRO cut resistant fabric is offering ISO 13997:1999 blade cut resistance level 5, EN 388:2003 blade cut resistance level 5 and ASTM F-1790 level 4.

Cut-Tex® PRO offers 27.8 Newton of blade cut resistance, as well as extraordinary tear and abrasion resistance, making it the ideal fabric to be incorporated into uniform and tactical apparel.

Police, prison, private security, mental health care professionals, and industries, such as glass handling and metal pressing are already benefiting from this great new fabric.

In addition to the above cut resistance level, Cut-Tex® PRO is also offering EN 388:2003 Tear Resistance Level 4 (the highest possible) and EN 388:2003 Abrasion Resistance Level 4 (the highest possible).

Subject to a minimum order volume of 1,000sqm Cut-Tex® PRO can be made available in any colour of choice.

Cut-Tex® PRO is a registered trademark of UK based PPSS Group, and is now available to licensed manufacturers around the world.  PPSS Group welcomes any enquiries with immediate effect.

How Uniform Manufacturers Can Benefit From Cut Resistant Fabric?

Forearm cut injury resulting form an edged weapon attack.

Forearm cut injury resulting from an edged weapon attack. Such injuries can be prevented by assuring that tactical clothing and uniforms are covering the most vulnerable areas by incorporating Cut-Tex PRO

Cut and slash resistant fabrics have been developed following thousands of cut and slash related injuries at all sorts of different workplaces around the world.

One particular group of men and women at risk are the ones who protect and serve our countries, and this include especially all homeland security professionals, such as law enforcement and correctional officers.

For many years leather was accepted as a good level of protection against cut related injuries, but a real need for much better protection called for specially engineered fabrics offering the wearer a high level of dexterity.

The objective of UK based PPSS Group was not just to create a fabric which protects a person but also to allows him or her to continue to do the work they are doing with a minimum of discomfort and mobility restriction.

Following extensive research and testing, Cut-Tex® PRO, a tested and certified ISO 13997:1999 blade cut resistance level 5 (the highest possible) and ASTM F-1790 blade cut resistance level 4 fabric was introduced to the public about two years ago.

Please view our video:

With an incredible blade cut resistance of 27.8 Newton, and a truly exceptionally high level of tear and abrasion resistance, Cut-Tex® PRO cut and slash resistant fabric became the new benchmark.

Offering this cut and slash resistant fabric to textile manufacturers, means enabling them to incorporate this high performance material into tactical clothing and uniforms, especially vulnerable areas that really require such level of protection.  This would effectively help protect the wearer from potentially horrendous cut injuries, subsequent rapid blood loss and even death.

In my professional opinion all homeland security professionals, dealing regularly with potentially aggressive, hostile and intoxicated members of the public operate in a reasonably high risk environment and can clearly benefit from our cut resistant high performance fabric.

I strongly believe that especially the following five areas and arteries require such level of added protection from edged weapon:

Cut-Tex PRO Protecting Key Areas

Effective safety training and the highlighting of operational risks and threats to the workforce is of course of great importance…. however, the matter of fact is, that injuries will always occur as long as human being exists.

The focus or concentration of any professional can be compromised by a number of variables e.g. personal circumstances, such amount of sleep, mental fatigue, exhaustion and level of health.

Cut-Tex® PRO cut/slash resistant fabric is now being incorporated in uniforms and tactical apparel at homeland security departments and other frontline agencies all over the world, acting as a great safety net when the concentration of a professional is compromised, or when he/she is faced by a hostile member of the public.

Cut-Tex® PRO is now being manufactured under strict ISO 9001:2008 at a strictly confidential manufacturing facility in the heart of England.

It is now available to all uniform and tactical apparel manufacturing firms around the world.

Cut-Tex® PRO – The World’s Best Slash Resistant Fabric

Cut-Tex® PRO slash resistant fabric is now being used to manufacture some of the most effective high performance cut and slash resistant protective clothing for law enforcement and other homeland security professionals around the world.

Forearm cut injury resulting form an edged weapon attack.

All frontline professionals dealing with potentially aggressive, hostile or intoxicated members of the public are obviously working in a higher risk environment.

We believe personal protective equipment (PPE) or clothing using Cut-Tex® PRO to protect vital areas will improve their personal safety and effectively reduce the risk of workplace violence related injuries or even death in the line of duty.

Many homeland security agencies have now requested that parts of their tactical clothing or uniforms must be lined with an ultra-high resistant fabric such as Cut-Tex® PRO, to protect or shield at least the main four arteries, which are:

  • Radial Artery:  Located in our wrists
  • Carotid Artery:  Located in your throat
  • Axillary Artery:  Located under your arm pits
  • Femoral Artery:  Located in the thigh and groin (inner leg) area

Additional videos will follow shortly, but please view the following brief video highlighting the exceptional cut protection of Cut-Tex PRO:

Cut-Tex® PRO is an ultra-high performance slash resistant fabric, made out of an innovative combination of technical fibres weaved by special high-density knitting machines.

In addition to the above we can also confirm that Cut-Tex® PRO is offering an outstanding level of tear and abrasion protection.  Please view the following chart:

All associated test reports are physical evidence of its exceptional performance.  These reports are available upon request.

Cut-Tex® PRO – Current Applications

Cut-Tex PRO Slash Resistant FabricCut-Tex® PRO is now being used to create slash resistant clothing for law enforcement and prison officers, emergency services, private security and public transport professionals, as well as bite resistant arm guards for professionals working within mental health care and psychiatric facilities.

Cut-Tex® PRO it is also a part of several other types of garments and application, however, due to the confidential nature of some of our agreement we are unable to highlight all of them.

Cut-Tex® PRO Now Being Used For BitePRO Arm Guards To Help Protect Those In Fear Of Human Bites

BitePRO Arm Guards - Version 1

BitePRO Arm Guards – Version 1

“There is no doubt in my mind, BitePRO Bite Resistant Arm Guards can help protect mental health care professionals and special educational needs teachers from physical injury, risk of infection, soft tissue damage and subsequent psychological distress”, says Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, the firm behind this new type of protective clothing.

Bite injuries can of course become infected and mental health care professionals could subsequently be contaminated with pathogens. Transmissions of potentially life threatening viruses, such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV are also a part of reality. Our high performance fabric Cut-Tex® PRO will help reduce this risk”, Robert Kaiser claims.

According to The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology, bite injuries represent 1% of all emergency department admissions in the United States… I guess we understand that a low figure of 1% of all emergency department admissions is an incredibly high number overall!

Teaching professionals working within schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs or autism, as well as care workers within mental health care and psychiatric hospitals, are aware that human bites can be relatively frequent in their work environment, and many seek protection from the subsequent injuries.

 BitePRO Arm Guards - Version 2

BitePRO Arm Guards – Version 2

Looking at the potential and realistic consequences, we must look at all possible options in order to help protect health care professionals from such consequences, which in the worst case scenario can include death following the transmission of an incurable virus.

According to Bill Geraghty, President of PPSS Group’s North America Operation, this type of PPE has recently been issued to a number of mental health care nurses and special educational needs teachers in the U.S. and Canada.

A padded (impact absorbing) version of their ever so popular Version 1 arm guard model is also available, also effectively reducing the severity of bruising.

PPSS is the global leader of bite resistant clothing and other protective clothing made out of Cut-Tex® PRO, with distribution in a number of countries worldwide.

Cut-Tex® PRO: High Performance Cut Resistant Fabric

I am extremely proud to announce that we have developed our high performance cut resistant fabric Cut-Tex PRO following our great passion to protect frontline professionals all over the world.

Many scientists and specialists within the textile industry continuously seek to improve and develop new equipment and innovative slash and cut resistant clothing… but I am very very confident that we are and we will be leading this industry with immediate effect.

In order to use this cut resistant textile for protective clothing or other applications it had to be tested to British, European and International blade cut resistance standards.  The challenge was to substantiate independently the extraordinary properties of this new cut resistant textile with independent, scientific evidence, and to back up all claims we are making.

Our Cut-Tex® PRO cut slash and cut resistant fabric was subsequently tested to BS EN 388: 2003 6.2 Blade Cut Resistance, and it achieved the highest rating of level 5.  It also reached level 5 when tested to the European and International Standard BS EN ISO 13997:1999, which is highly regarded as the most stringent and efficient standard for blade cut resistance.

These results clearly demonstrate the incredible strength and cut resistant properties of Cut-Tex® PRO, which is now being used to manufacture comfortable cut and slash resistant clothing for security professionals, police, prison and enforcement officers in a number of countries around the World.

Please view our video:

Companies from a variety of other sectors have now expressed an interest in this new cut resistant textile Cut-Tex® PRO that appears to take the World over by storm.  Glass handling and metal pressing companies are now able to see its great potential to protect factory workers from potential cuts and injuries, and haulage and truck firms have expressed an interest to line some of their trailer curtains with Cut-Tex® PRO to prevent illegal immigrants from cutting themselves a way into the trucks before crossing borders and entering countries. A problem that has recently become of great concern for many privately owned transport companies, especially here in the UK.

There is no doubt that Cut-Tex® PRO will help to save human lives in the future.  Right now it is all about educating professionals and letting them know that concealable and comfortable cut resistant clothing can be designed, developed and manufactured with the aid of Cut-Tex PRO, the world’s best slash an cut resistant fabric.

We need to stop thinking that everything will be ok.  We need to stop believing that nothing is ever going to go to happen, simply based on that fact that the past has been very kind to us and no one has been injured in OUR company or organisation yet.

I think we all should aim to prevent cut injuries rather than continuing with the habit of fixing things when they have gone wrong.  Cut-Tex® PRO has been developed with exactly this in mind.

Should you have any questions in reference to our slash and cut resistant textile Cut-Tex® PRO or our outstanding range of PPSS cut resistant clothing… then please contact PPSS Group on +44 (0) 845 5193 953, email info@ppss-group.com or visit www.ppss-group.com
