PPSS Slash Resistant Gloves - HERACLES

Offering the highest possible levels of cut and hypodermic needle resistance of any police glove on the market today PPSS Slash & Needle Resistant Gloves are most suitable for those professionals frequently facing hostile and intoxicated members of the public, such as police, prison and security officers.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group comments: “Based on over 50 years of combined operational frontline experience we understand that the majority of injuries found on a police, prison or security officer are to be found around the palm of the hand and forearm. These injuries are classed as ‘defensive wounds’ and can easily lead to irreparable injuries and rapid blood loss”.

“Anyone involved with the searching or restraining of potentially aggressive ‘non-compliant’ individuals is at risk of hand injuries. Hidden hypodermic needles, edged weapon or other offensive weapons are all part of today’s society and our key objective is to protect officers from them”.

PPSS Slash Resistant Gloves provide a highly advanced level of protection to the palm and fingers against all types of cuts, offering outstanding EN 388:2003 Blade Cut Resistance Level 5, the highest possible.

All twelve new models are also available with EN 388:2003 Puncture/Needle Resistance Level 4, again the highest level possible.
