UK firm PPSS Group have perhaps designed the very first and potentially only EN ISO 20471:2013 certified stab resistant body armour in the UK.
This means security professionals would no longer be required to wear a hi-vis vest over commonly used body armour, in environments where it would be crucial.
The company claims that in the ever-growing sectors who demand body armour, more and more frontline professionals also require high visibility workwear.
According to PPSS Group, using the right safety workwear is not only important to the wearer, but also the employer, who are required to comply with national, European or sometime international guidelines or directives.
The EN ISO 20471:2013 is the standard for high visibility clothing. It is the unquestionable benchmark for anyone wishing to design or supply high visibility clothing.
Robert Kaiser, CEO, is making potential customers aware: “Please note that many manufacturers provide an option, which appears to be Hi-Viz, but is not actually certified under EN ISO 20471:2013”
“Our fluorescent Cordura® material boosts visibility during the daylight hours, but more importantly it also increases levels of visibility during the night. This is further maximised by our highly reflective tape, which runs around the body and over the shoulders.”
PPSS Group’s latest high visibility stab resistant body armour also offers thoroughly field-tested and officially certified CAST KR1/SP1 (stab and spike) and VPAM W5 (blunt force/impact) protection.
