BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing

BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing is made from 100% Cut-Tex® PRO, one of the most talked about fabrics in recent years.

BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing have been supplied to countless of organisations, associated to mental health care, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs and autism, but name but a few.

Our protective garments effectively help to prevent human teeth penetrating the other person's skin. This subsequently eliminates the risk of infection and cross contamination and all different levels of distress to the wearer.

Why is bite resistant clothing so important?

A few undeniable facts and figures will highlight the need for bite resistant clothing.

  • A skin break increases the risk of infection and makes it necessary to be sure tetanus shots are up-to-date.
  • A skin break is often obvious but can be tough to tell in some cases. Anything that looks like the top layer of skin has come off should be considered a skin break.
  • Wound infection occurs in 9-50% of human bites.
  • Risk of severe infection is particularly high in bite injuries.
  • The average human bite pressure is in the range of 2840 to 4270 psi.
  • The human bite forces range from 55 lbs to 280 lbs... averaging 162 lbs.

The majority of BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing does not stop the potentially painful effect due to the pressure and force being applied. This means the risk of infection would be eliminated but the risk of bruising remains. However, BitePRO® have also designed several bite resistant arm guards, which also help reduce the pain created by the pressure and force of the biting persons jaw. This means the severity of the bruising would be reduced.
