Taxi drivers look smart in cut resistant clothing

Following a number of violent knife attacks on taxi drivers in, UK based PPSS Group have now launched cut resistant clothing to help protect them.

"We believe that our high performance cut resistant clothing will help protect taxi drivers, who often work alone at night, dealing with potentially hostile and intoxicated members of the public", says Robert Kaiser, their CEO.

Smart looking and comfortable 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.

"A knife attack, which sees the radial artery, the carotid artery or the axillary artery being cut or slashed will under normal circumstances lead to a rapid blood loss and can subsequently lead to death", explains Robert Kaiser.

He continues by saying: "We strongly believe knife and slash resistant clothing, shielding these four main arteries, should be available to all taxi drivers who frequently have o face racial harassment, aggressive complains about the fare and serious drunken disorders."

All protective garments are machine washable and made out of Cut-Tex PRO, the world's market leading cut resistant fabric, offering EN 388:2003 Blade Cut Resistance Level 5, the highest possible.

The safety of the taxi drivers is paramount, as their job takes them to some places of great danger and also the great variety of people into consideration they have in their vehicles can also cause a serious threat to the driver.

PPSS Group is a UK based manufacturer of certified bullet proof vests, stab vests and the company behind Cut-Tex PRO. This groundbreaking fabric is one of the world's strongest cut resistant fabrics and is now being used to manufacture cut resistant clothing for police, military, emergency services, prisons and private security professionals as well as glass handling and metal pressing industries all over the world.
