PPSS Group Launch Cut Resistant Neck Guards To Help Protect Homeland Security Professionals

The new neck protectors offer thoroughly field tested and exceptionally high levels of certified cut protection.

PPSS Group have launched SlashPRO® Cut Resistant Neck Guards in order to help further improve the personal safety of homeland security professionals worldwide.

This latest addition to this widely respected brand of slash resistant clothing certainly makes sense, understanding that the side of the neck and throat contains both the Carotid Artery and Jugular Vein. If either is cut by an attacker one will most likely suffer from rapid blood loss, subsequent shock and most likely death.

PPSS Group have identified a noticeable increase in the demand for such product, especially from several homeland security agencies, such as prison, police, immigration, customs, border forces and other government agencies. Many of these agencies have reported incidents, which saw their officers being brutally attacked.  Many attacks had targeted the officers’ throats and necks.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group said: “Many government employees or security professionals have been attacked from behind. This may well be the case because they, for whatever reasons, either trusted the attacker to a reasonable level, or because the attackers put themselves intentionally into such position in order to cause max injury or even death.”

“No matter how hard we try, we simply cannot eliminate their operational risks. However, what we can do is continue our research and development and relentlessly explore all possible options to further improve the personal safety of those who serve our countries and protect us.”

SlashPRO® Neck Guards can be worn ‘turned up’ to cover the entire neck area, or ‘turned down’ for covert operations or a more natural look. They are available in black as standard colour.

The new neck protectors offer thoroughly field tested and exceptionally high levels of certified cut protection. Verified test reports highlight European Cut Level 5 (EN 388:2016), International Cut Level 5 (ISO 13997:1999) and American Cut Level A5 (ANSI/ISEA 2016).  All test reports are available on the firm’s website.

SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing can be purchased via a dedicated online shop: www.slash-pro.com.  For corporate or government enquiries please email info@slash-pro.com
