Critical Advancement in Knife and Spike Protection
Written by: Robert Kaiser
According to their CEO Robert Kaiser, the decision in 2019 was based on the company’s comprehensive understanding of the most realistic operational risks and threats, faced by today’s private security professionals,
The firm’s product video, featuring him being subjected to a serious of attacks with knives, spikes and blunt objects is widely regarded as ‘physical evidence’ of its outstanding performance level and quality.
PPSS Group’s CEO Robert Kaiser states:
“Following years of relentless R&D we have concluded in 2019 that Polycarbonate as a raw material was simply no longer on par with the threats some of our men and women face. We had learn at that time to accept that improved knife and spike protection was indeed needed.”
“We concluded that carbon-fibre was the only real reliable and forward-thinking solution. Utilising the latest raw material and production technology made us understand what truly superior levels of stab and spike protection could be achieved.”
According to Kaiser, certified stab and spike protection is crucial, especially to correctional and prison officers who face some of the cruellest makeshift weapons, such as shanks and spikes daily.
Spike protection has now also become of equal importance to private security professionals, simply due to the type of weapons appearing on the streets in recent years.
Religious extremism, terrorism, social deprivation, immigration, a lack of respect and discipline, and an overall breakdown in society all had an impact on to the increasing number of knives and edged weapons being carried, and on the kinds of edged weapons essentially being used.
In recent months and years we have seen extremely evil individuals walking the streets, carrying ‘Samurai’ swords, meat cleavers and machetes, brutally assaulting and indeed slaughtering innocent people, often driven by rage and extremism, in many cases committing multiple homicide or mass murder.
