Cut-Tex PRO now used for refuse collectors & street cleaners
Nov '10
The groundbreaking new textile Cut-Tex PRO is now being used to manufacture ultra high cut resistant lower leg protection in order toprotect refuse collectors and street cleaners from injuries.

A recent judgement of the Court of Appeal in London in favour of a street cleaner is expected to cost Hull City Council at least £100,000 in damages, after Mr Threlfall cut his finger whilst on duty.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS said: "The unfortunate incident involving in Hull will highlight once again the obligation all employers have to provide suitable protection to their employees."

"Common sense will tell us that our new hard-wearing cut resistant lower leg protection and gloves will reduce the risk of cut injuries, subsequent infections and potential liable cases".

PPSS is using their new blade cut resistance level 5 textile Cut-Tex PRO for their highly regarded range of cut resistant clothing.
The cut resistant lower leg protection are available as either Cut-Tex PRO stand alone garments or with an additional layer Cordura 600 as out layer, adding a substantial amount of toughness to the garment.

"The ultra durable Cordura 600 outer layer is available in a number of colours, offering our customers a number of options", says Robert Kaiser.

PPSS is specialised in manufacturing and supplying a range of standard and bespoke cut resistant garments, for both industrial and public sector applications.

Robert Kaiser states: "We are here to help. We would like to invite all refuse collection and street cleaning departments to contact us for free advice, or in case they have any unanswered questions or would like to see some product samples".
