UBAC (Under Body Armour Combat) shirts are usually being manufactured using a range of specialist materials, including lightweight, moisture wicking and breathable fabric, and are usually worn alongside the very latest in body armour systems, assault clothing and webbing. PPSS Group’s UBAC shirt is different. It is offering comfortable and truly exceptional cut protection around the arm area, side of torso, neck and throat area, protecting four key arteries from laceration, subsequent rapid blood loss and potential subsequent death. Even whilst wearing the most modern type of bullet or stab resistant vests, the areas harbouring the extremely vulnerable radial artery, brachial artery, carotid artery, as well as axillary artery will remain exposed and vulnerable. Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group is keen to make clear why this product has been designed: “We are on the receiving end of several incident reports and rather graphic images, highlighting some of the most severe cut and slash injuries I have seen in my professional career.” [Native Advertisement] “The fact that most of these professionals wear an ultra-modern body armour has not made any difference to the severity of these injuries.” “Body armour can offer effective ballistic or edged weapon protection, but they do not provide any protection to the key arteries, and we know that the cutting or slashing of any of these arteries can lead to rapid blood loss and death within an extremely short period of time. The chance of survival in many cases can be zero.” “If you are a homeland security professional wearing a body armour then you have either established a certain risk or you are at least aware of a certain risk.  I don't believe that risk is limited to the torso only.” This new slash resistant UBAC shirt is ideal for law enforcement professionals, SWAT teams, prison and security officers, as well as civil enforcement officers operating within a higher risk environment. It features include two upper arm pockets (for small notepad and pens) with Velcro for rank patches, blood patches or other attachments, as well as thumb loops to keep the sleeves in place. All slash resistant garments made by PPSS Group are being manufactured in the EU in an ISO 9001:2015 quality controlled environment and are made out of our very own high performance cut resistant fabric Cut-Tex® PRO .  This fabric has been tested against all key European, American and International fabric standards. Recent changes within health and safety regulation and the potential legal consequences of not complying with these strict guidelines have recently led to an increasing demand for such type of PPE from homeland security agencies around the world.  Should you have any questions in reference to PPSS slash resistant clothing, please feel free to contact PPSS Group on +44 (0) 845 5193 953 email  info@ppss-group.com , visit  www.ppss-group.com   About PPSS: UK based PPSS Group is specialised in the development of high performance bullet resistant vests, stab resistant vests and cut/slash resistant clothing, aiming to protect police, military, emergency services, prisons and private security professionals all over the world. Their CEO Robert Kaiser is frequently invited to speak in front of large audiences of homeland security and domestic frontline professionals about the latest body armour technology and developments.  He is acting as body armour consultant for a number of organisations, associations and international government agencies.  His genuine passion for personal safety and personal protection is globally respected and without question.  By Sponsored Content is made possible by our sponsor; it does not necessarily reflect the views of our editorial staff.
