UK Firm Supplies Slash Resistant Clothing To Protect Public Facing Professionals From Knives

Written by: Robert Kaiser

Globally respected firm PPSS Group has recently seen record sales for their SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing brand.  Their online shop can be viewed here:

The company’s key objective is to protect police, prison and security officers, and to reduce the number of knife and workplace violence related injuries.

Poverty and social exclusion, religious and political extremism, drugs, social media as well as serious mental illnesses have all been blamed for the global rise of knife crime.

The news of individuals grabbing a kitchen knife and causing serious harm and injury to others has become a rather normal daily occurrence today.

Knives have recently also become the weapon of choice for many so called “lone-wolf” attackers. This is due to the low planning required to conduct a knife attack whether against an individual or mass group.

Homeland security agencies (police, prison, border control, immigration and customs), as well as private security companies, taxi drivers, health care professionals and emergency medical staff from around the world have now all turned to the firm to purchase garments and clothing protecting their officers from such weapon.

PPSS Group’s CEO commenting on SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing

“Slashing dangers are now relatively frequent for these workers and it is has become a realistic and daily occupational risk. The cutting of an artery can cause rapid blood loss, shock and even fatality. It is our mission to protect professionals at risk, with a range of easy-to-wear, slash resistant clothing.”

“Some men and women made a professional choice to protect other human beings, facilities, venues, events and infrastructure. Those men and women have the moral and legal right to be equipped appropriately.  Slash resistant clothing is appropriate and ultimately can save lives”.

We highly recommend reading one of his most important articles yet, titled: The Danger of Slashing | Human Anatomy.

SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing can purchased directly through the company’s online shop:
