World’s First Slash Resistant Combat Shirts
Written by: Robert Kaiser
Following a number of well documented cut and slash related assaults on homeland security professionals in many countries around the globe, PPSS Group have now launched the SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Combat Shirt.
Please view our dedicated online shop.
UBAC (Under Body Armour Combat) shirts are usually manufactured using a range of specialist materials. These include lightweight, moisture wicking and breathable fabric. They are worn alongside the very latest in body armour systems, assault clothing and webbing.
SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Combat Shirts offer comfortable and truly exceptional cut protection around the arm area, side of torso, neck and throat area. This is to protect key arteries from laceration, subsequent rapid blood loss and potential subsequent death.
However, please also note that a cut to your muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves can cause immobility, which in many cases and environments can lead to death.
Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group is keen to make clear why this product has been designed:
“We are on the receiving end of several incident reports and pretty graphic images, highlighting some of the most severe cut and slash injuries I have seen in my professional career. The fact that most of these professionals wear an ultra-modern body armour has not made any difference to the severity of these injuries.”
“Body armour offer effective ballistic or edged weapon protection, but it does not provide any protection to the key arteries – and we know that the cutting or slashing of any of these arteries can lead to rapid blood loss and death within an extremely short period of time. The chance of survival in many cases can be zero.”
All slash resistant combat shirts are “made in Britain” and are made out of our very own high performance cut resistant fabric Cut-Tex® PRO. This high-performance fabric has been tested against all key European, American and International standards. Test reports are available on request.
It is also worth pointing out our SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Combat Shirts are machine washable and has achieved excellent results in Dimensional Stability Test and Appearance Assessment. They offer offer exceptional protection, whilst maintaining a very high degree of dexterity to the wearer.
Please read our CEO’s extremely informative article on the risk of slashing, helping you to understand better the differences between stabbing and slashing attacks.
Recent changes within health and safety regulations and the potential legal consequences of not complying with these strict guidelines has recently led to an increasing demand for such types of PPE from homeland security agencies around the world.
PPSS Group is a globally respected firm, specialised in the development, manufacturing and supply of high-performance body armour, offering unrivalled protection from edged weapons, blunt force trauma and hypodermic needles.
