PPSS Group: Critical Advancement in Knife Protection
WETHERBY, United Kingdom, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Based on a comprehensive understanding of today's most realistic threats 
faced by homeland and private security professionals, PPSS Group have today 
announced an official replacement for their highly acclaimed 
polycarbonate-based stab resistant body armour 

    The firm's product video (, 
featuring the CEO Robert Kaiser being beaten and stabbed wearing the body 
armour is widely regarded as 'physical evidence' of its precise performance 
level and quality.

    Kaiser said: "Following years of relentless R&D we have concluded that 
Polycarbonate as a raw material is simply 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 

    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 due to the type of weapons appearing on the 
streets in recent years.

    Comparing it with the company's highly successful polycarbonate-based stab 
resistant vests, the new body armour is even lighter, thinner, more effective 
and more functional.
