PPSS Group has developed next generation of high-performance body armour which protects the wearer from even the most vicious and brutal types of edged weapon and shanks imaginable. The new body armour is made from Auxilam, a unique carbon fibre composite material. It has been field tested thoroughly, will be made available from January 06, 2020.

PPSS Group is specialised in the development, manufacturing and supply of high-performance personal protective equipment, offering unrivalled protection from edged weapons, blunt force trauma and even human bites.

Utilising a combination of the strength of carbon fibre, the auxetic properties of Auxilam technology and some additional ‘top secret’ assets derived from the specially developed composite structure, this next generation of body armour offers a truly outstanding balance of weight, protection, performance and durability.

In comparison to PPSS Group’s highly acclaimed polycarbonate-based stab resistant vests, the company claims a reduction of 19 per cent in thickness (utilising a 3.9 millimetres carbon fibre composite) and a 6.6 per cent lower aerial density and reduced weight for its latest development.

It will be certified to KR2/SP2 according to the UK Home Office Body Armour Standard, as well as NIJ Level 2 (Stab & Spike) and VPAM K2/D2 meaning it will offer a truly significant higher level of knife, spike and needle protection.

Government agencies and security companies will be able to choose from an array of different styles, ranging from covert, overt to hi viz overt options.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group stated: “Law enforcement, border force, immigration, customs and prison officers are being attacked by criminals carrying and using knives, machetes, shanks, blunt objects and hypodermic needles every day.”

“Our key objective is to protect those men and women even more effectively. Using the very latest in technology and following extensive research and development, our latest body armour is now offering previously absolutely unthinkable levels of protection,” Kaiser said and added “It also offers exceptional, VPAM certified protection from blunt objects, effectively reducing the risks of blunt force trauma injuries, for example, internal bleeding.”

The UK headquartered firm has been supplying countless of homeland security agencies in countries around the world with their widely respected polycarbonate-based stab resistant vests over the past ten years.
