“PPSS have now launched a series of high visibility stab vests, clearly demonstrating that body armour does not have to look confrontational, aggressive or authoritative ” Robert Kaiser, their CEO states.
“Frontline employees dealing with the public should be doing their utmost to express themselves as peaceful ambassadors within their line of work, and our high visibility stab vests allow them to express themselves peacefully and appear approachable” Robert continues.
Professionals dealing with potentially hostile members of the public should be able to use their positive personality, diplomacy and negotiation skills to defuse a situation, and certain types of overt body armour can certainly send the wrong signal and make professionals appear like ‘Rambo’ or ‘Robocop’.
Covert body armour or stab vests on the other hand can at times be very impractical as not all security professionals are required to wear body armour all the time whilst on duty.
Many security professionals simply prefer the idea of over body armour as they can easily be taken off when driving or reporting back in the office. They appreciate the occasional opportunity to unzip the body armour and let the body breath for a few minutes especially during the hot summer months.
But as just stated, the problem with some over body armour however is that they can of course look quite aggressive, hence many security and health and safety managers have been looking for ‘peaceful’ or none-aggressive looking overt body armour.
“Perception is without a doubt one of the most important factors within personal safety and personal protective equipment. This is why we believe our new high visibility stab vests series offers a great solution” Robert says.
PPSS high visibility stab vests offer UK Home Office certified KR1 stab protection and confirm with the European EN 471:2003 high visibility standard.
They are available in ‘body armour’, ‘jacket’ and ‘vest’ styles and come in a number of sizes, ranging from XS to XXXL.
