Both glass and metal are two exceptional materials, however, what we also know that working with either can present the risk of sustaining serious cuts and lacerations.
Cut resistant clothing has therefore been an essential part of PPE within the glass and metal production and processing industry for a many many years.
CutPRO® is a fantastic new brand of high performance cut resistant clothing, created for those in need of quality, durable and user-friendly cut protection.
The company behind this innovative brand, PPSS Group, looked at several existing cut resistant clothing designs. Together with the multi award winning Department of Apparel of one of the UK’s leading Universities, worked on the ultimate garment designs, taking ’durability’ and ‘quality’ to a completely different level.
CutPRO® is also the result of extensive research and contribution from health and safety professionals of leading flat glass and sheet metal processing companies from around the world.
All cut resistant garments are made out of 100% Cut-Tex® PRO a globally respected, ultra-high performance, light, durable and easy to wear fabric that is in excess of 5 times more cut resistant than Kevlar® products rated level 3 at 5N.
CutPRO® High Performance Protective Clothing
In terms of performance it really doesn’t get much better than this… CutPRO® is offering ANSI/ISEA 2016 Blade Cut Resistance Level A5 and the highest levels of cut, abrasion, puncture and tear resistance possible (according to EN 388 – Protection Against Mechanical Risks).
Please also note… CutPRO® DOES NOT produce neither the raw cut resistant fabric Cut-Tex® PRO nor CutPRO® cut resistant clothing in China or the Far East. The raw fabric is produced in the UK and all of the garments are being produced in the European Union.
All garments are individually packed and of course fully CE marked (Cat II PPE).
“Injuries resulting from the manual handling of objects and materials with sharp edges are common in the engineering industry. Data from firms show that as many as a third of all injuries recorded are caused by cuts from sharp metal during handling.”– HSE Guide to handling sharp metal information sheet (engineering sheet no.16)
Bespoke Cut Resistant Garments
CutPRO® Cut Resistant Clothing is specialised in the design and production of bespoke cut resistant garments, tailored to suit the operational needs of our international clients and customers.
We believe that there are differences between one flat glass company and another…. we also believe that there are differences between one sheet metal company and another. The differences might be based on one of several of the following:
- Precise operational tasks (manual handling Vs automatisation)
- Operational risks, especially in regards to ‘risk of laceration’
- Temperature of environment
- History of accidents and precise type/location of cut injuries
- Additional factors
Based on this we don’t believe in a ‘one garment fits all approach’.
