PPSS Group announces critical advancement in knife protection technology

PPSS Stab Resistant Body ArmourBased on a comprehensive understanding of the most realistic threats facing homeland and private security professionals today, the PPSS Group has announced an official replacement for its polycarbonate stab resistant body armour

The company’s product video, featuring CEO Robert Kaiser being beaten and stabbed wearing body armour, is widely regarded as ‘physical evidence’ of its level of performance and quality.

Kaiser said, “Following years of relentless R&D, we have concluded that Polycarbonate as a raw material is no longer good enough. Its lack of certified spike protection resulted in it becoming ‘morally’ unjustifiable for us. We learned to accept that improved protection from knives, machetes, razor blades, shanks and indeed spikes was needed.

“We concluded that carbon fibre composites are the only real reliable and forward-thinking solution. Carbon fibre is enabling us to offer truly superior levels of stab protection alongside substantial weight reduction, lower thickness, and finally also fully certified spike protection. This at no extra cost.”

According to their CEO, certified spike protection is crucial, especially to correctional and prison officers who face some of the cruellest makeshift weapons, such as shanks and spikes daily.

Spike protection has now also become of equal importance to private security professionals, simply because of the type of weapons that have appeared on the streets in recent years.

Compared to the company’s highly successful polycarbonate stab resistant vests, the new body armour is even lighter, thinner, more efficient and more functional.

Over the last ten years, the PPSS Group’s body armour has provided reliable levels of protection from edged, protecting security professionals and law enforcement, prison, immigration and customs officers worldwide.
