Cut-Tex® PRO Now Being Used To Design And Manufacture Life Saving Clothing

Cut-Tex® PRO has primarily been designed to act as an effective, reliable and comfortable shield, protecting vulnerable areas of the human body, in particular the Radial, Brachial, Carotid, Axillary and Femoral Arteries from laceration and the wearer from rapid blood loss and potential death:

Cut-Tex PRO cut and slash resistant fabric

Most Kevlar® fabrics offer an ISO 13997:1999 blade cut resistance level 2 and in very rare occasions level 3 (on a scale of 1 to 5). Cut-Tex® PRO fabric as a stand-alone fabric offers the highest cut resistance level 5, which makes it 5 times more cut resistant than Kevlar® products rated level 3 at 5N.

A series of new slash resistant garments have now been designed and manufactured by UK headquartered PPSS Group:

Cut-Tex® PRO Used to Create Slash Resistant Clothing to Help Protect Cab & Taxi Drivers

PPSS Slash Resistant Turtle Neck Jacket - ideal to protect taxi and cab drivers form edged weapon injuries.

PPSS Slash Resistant Turtle Neck Jacket – ideal to effectively help protect taxi and cab drivers from edged weapon injuries.

Just a very few days ago a taxi driver in Scotland was left seriously injured after being attacked with a knife by a passenger who drove off in his car.

A few months ago Jay Waiton, a 60 year old cab driver from Salina (Kansas, USA) was brutally attacked, leaving him with injuries on his head, neck and arms. He commented by saying:  “I woke up and thank the Lord that I was still alive… I guess maybe he thought he killed me and that’s when he stopped. I passed out and I thought I was dead”.

Following these violent knife attacks on cab & taxi drivers, we have now launched cut and slash resistant clothing to help protect them.

PPSS high performance slash resistant clothing are made out of 100% Cut-Tex PRO cut and slash resistant fabric and will without any question help protect cab & taxi drivers, who often work alone at night, dealing with potentially hostile, intoxicated and ‘out of control’ members of the public.

The safety of these professionals has to be important.  Their job takes them to so many places that can be remote, very dangerous and often without any mobile/cell phone reception. The great variety of people they have in their vehicles represent additional obvious, realistic and serious threat to the driver.

Racial harassment and aggressive complains about the fare and serious drunken disorder are now also issues taxi drivers have to face, often on a daily basis… especially at the end of weekend nights when customers have been drinking excessively all night.

Just read the following international news snips for yourself:

Although excellent personal safety advice for taxi drivers is available on the internet, it is however often not enough to protect these frontline professionals.

We need an additional ‘safety net’.  Something that protects us if all the CCTV systems in the world and all the best communication skills and our great personality have failed to stop such attack.

Smart looking and comfortable cut and slash resistant sweat shirts and sleeves can act as such ‘safety net’ and are ideal for taxi drivers and private hire as they 100% concealable.

We need to understand, that 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 cause death within a very few minutes.

I can only encourage taxi drivers to contact us in case they wish to discuss the subject of personal protective clothing or highlighted any acts of violence they have been part of during their career.  I would really like to hear from you, as it may well help my firm to develop additional garments or equipment with your safety and protection in mind.
