Cut-Tex Pro protects from knife cut, slash & bite

May '10
A Yorkshire-based manufacturer of bespoke knife, bite and slash resistant garments, has developed a world beating cut-resistant fabric, no thicker than that of a normal T-Shirt.

Cut-Tex Pro is a groundbreaking combination of high-tenacity, high-modulus polyethylene fibres - combined with several other “technical fibres” - weaved by special high-density knitting machines, resulting in an outstanding cut-resistant fabric.

It has been developed and manufactured by Ripon-based PPSS.

The company, which produces body armour for clients around the globe, says its Cut-Tex Pro is the world's best, which is reinforced by passing the stringent British Standard 388 6.2 Level 5 – the highest level possible for textiles.

PPSS managing director Robert Kaiser said: “The potential applications for our world-beating knife, slash and bite resistant material is endless. Already there has been a huge amount of interest in Cut-Tex Pro.

“PPSS specialises in developing unique, bespoke garments for local government, law enforcement, emergency services, prison service, hospital staff, schools and private security companies around the world.

“With Cut-Tex Pro, we now have a material that is incredibly lightweight and breathable, and we have been able to develop the following items of protective clothing, all using this new material:

• Slash resistant sweatshirts for one of the world's leading metal pressing companies
• Slash-resistant sleeves
• Boiler suits for secure mental health hospitals
• Slash-resistant work trousers for refuse collectors

“Level 5 is the highest level you can go for testing knife, bite and slash-proof material. Cut-Tex Pro passed with flying colours. We believe it is only a matter of time before our Cut-Tex Pro clothing saves a life.

“'Prevention is better than cure' and 'better safe than sorry' are two sayings which make more sense within personal safety than anywhere else.

“Issuing knife, slash and bite resistant clothing can mean preventing potentially fatal injuries.”
