PPSS launch newly developed front only body armour, in an attempt to reduce workplace violence related injuries within mental health care sectors.

Online PR News – 23-November-2010 – – PPSS launch newly developed front only body armour, in an attempt to reduce workplace violence related injuries within mental health care sectors, such as severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and special needs.

The single front plate is made out of a body moulded ultra light 3mm polycarbonate plate and held against the upper body via 6 point adjustable elastic straps.

Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS said: “A number of mental health care facilities have recently asked us if we can create something that protects very specific areas, such as the female breasts, which have often been subject to very violent grabs or nips”.

“This type of body protection is also ideal for those facing frequent biting and punching related incidents, often occurring in the above sectors”.

PPSS also claim that this innovative and widely requested new body armour offers 16 Joule of stab protection and absolutely 100% needle protection.

“We are fully aware of the fact that there has been a serious lack of personal protective equipment and body armour availably specifically to females. This new type of body armour is ideal for female mental health care professionals”.

It took more than 25 years from the initial launch of body armour to the police forces here in the UK to the first major developments of female specific body armour.

Robert Kaiser states: “For us it is crucial to listen to our potential customers and find out what they have to say. Then it is our job to design and manufacture PPE based on their operational risks and duties”.

The new front only body armour is available as a male or female version and can be purchased directly from PPSS.
