PPSS launches cut resistant clothing to help protect taxi drivers
Apr '11
Following a number of violent attacks on taxi drivers over the past two year, UK based PPSS have now launched cut resistant clothing to help protect these frontline professionals.

"There were a lot of drivers that decided to pack it in following the murder two years ago of Mohammed Arshad. After this terrible incident we had many drivers leaving us", claims the Managing Director of one private hire company.

Following his death, taxi drivers, council licensing authorities and the police set up initiatives in order to promote driver safety.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of UK based body armour company PPSS Group says; “We also wanted to help these professionals who often work alone at night, dealing with potentially hostile members of the public.”

“We have designed and developed cut resistant clothing using our very own blade cut resistant level 5 fabric Cut-Tex PRO, and genuinely believe that it will help reduce workplace violence related injuries.”

BS EN 388:2003 Blade Cut Resistance Level 5 is the highest possible, which means Cut-Tex PRO is as good as it gets.

Smart looking and very comfortable ultra strong cut and slash resistant windbreaker, sweat shirts, sleeves and gloves are now available from PPSS Group directly and are ideal for taxi drivers and private hire.

“We invite all drivers to contact us if they have any questions in reference to cut resistant clothing; we are here to help,” Robert Kaiser states.

PPSS Group is a UK based manufacturer of UK Home Office certified stab vests and the company behind Cut-Tex PRO. This groundbreaking fabric is the world's strongest cut resistant fabric and is now used to manufacture slash resistant clothing for police, military, emergency services, prisons and private security professionals all over the world.
