PPSS Cut & Slash Resistant Clothing
Our high performance cut and slash resistant clothing has been developed to help protect homeland security professionals, law enforcement officers and correctional officers from work related cut and slash injuries.
Numerous domestic frontline professional have suffered from severe cut wounds sometime, during physical confrontations with hostile members of the public or during forced entry operations.
From the point of the employer, injuries of this type can often lead to legal, moral and financial repercussion. From the point of the injured professional, and depending on the severity of such injury, it can often also lead to long lasting physical disabilities and emotional distress.
What areas of your body need additional protection?
- Our throat, which harbours the carotid artery is certainly among the most at risk locations of our body. A cut through the carotid artery would most likely result in death. Our slash resistant turtle neck jacket or sweatshirt would protect this area.
- The radial artery can be found in our wrists, which often is subject to cuts during self defence or whilst protecting our face.
- The femoral artery is a general term comprising a few large arteries in the thigh. Cutting of the femoral artery would lead to a massive loss of blood within e very short period of time.
- The axillary artery is a large blood vessel to be found under your arm pits. A British prison officer had his axillary artery slashed in March 2010 and almost bled to death! He is now physically disabled and suffering from PTSD.
It is without question, our cut resistant t-shirts would have drastically reduced the severity of this injury and prevented a lot of the psychological problems he is facing every single day of his life.
