Cut-Tex® PRO | High Performance Cut Resistant Fabric
Written by: Robert Kaiser
Cut-Tex® PRO is a ultra-high performance cut resistant fabric. It has been developed following thousands of cut injuries in all types of different workplaces around the world.
It would of course be a relatively simple procedure to protect against cuts if it were not for the issue of mobility, flexibility and comfort.
A solid steel shirt for example would provide great protection, but keep the worker from being productive and mobile, never mind the issues of weight and over heating of the body and hygiene.
For many years leather was accepted as the best protection against cut related injuries, but a real need for the best protection called for thicker leather which left the users with a minimum of dexterity and virtually no sensitivity.
However, PPSS Group’s objective is supply you with a fabric that can protect your clients or workforce. But, it must still allow them to continue to do the work they are doing with a minimum of discomfort and mobility restriction.
We are extremely proud to inform you that Cut-Tex® PRO Cut, Scratch and Bite Resistant Fabric is an ISO 9001 quality controlled, tested and certified knitted fabric. It is offering truly outstanding ISO 13997:1999 and EN 388:2016 blade cut resistance level E (previously level 5). It is also offering ANSI/ISEA F2992-15 blade cut resistance level A5.
Protective clothing made from Cut-Tex® PRO cut resistant fabric will reduce the risk workplace violence related or accidental injuries.
Offering our Cut-Tex® PRO to textile, clothing or workwear manufacturers, means enabling them to incorporate this truly outstanding and highly acclaimed material, offering dependable protection to especially vulnerable areas. The cutting any of the main arteries can of course lead to rapid blood loss, subsequent shock and potentially death.
There is no doubt in my mind that effective health and safety training and the highlighting of operational risks and threats to public facing professionals is of great importance. However, the matter of fact is though, that injuries will always occur as long as human being exists. Our focus can be compromised by a number of variables. Amount of sleep, level of health, exhaustion, mental fatigue and the individual’s job satisfaction will effect a person.
Many additional sectors are now taking advantage of the superb protective properties of Cut-Tex® PRO:
