UK based PPSS Group have launched what they claim is the world’s toughest forced entry mitten. The ‘ZEUS II’ mitten are a further improved and version of the original ZEUS mitten, now also featuring a very high level of flame and heat protection.
According to Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, their key objective was to create once again a piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is ‘as good as it gets’. World famous Nomex is offering an excellent level of flame protection. Cut-Tex PRO one of the toughest man made fabrics is responsible for the highest level of cut, tear and abrasion resistance. A unique type of polycarbonate is offering crucial protection from severe puncture wounds, following the ‘crashing’ of broken glass onto ones hands.
Carbon knuckle protection and polycarbonate sheets along the tops of all fingers, back of the hand and entire forearm area, are offering additional puncture protection (from fallen glass e.g. during forced entry operations). Robert states: “Whatever type of equipment my firm has created so far, it has always been of outstanding quality and is always offering the highest possible level of protection possible”.
“We believe that SWAT, correctional and law enforcement officers engaging with seriously hostile members of the public deserve to be equipped appropriately. These men and women must be issued with the very best protective equipment and clothing out there”.
