Bite and scratch protection for carers

Health care, social care & education

No one chooses to enter a caring profession expecting to be injured, but it is a sad reality for many mental health nurses, carers and special education teachers. Kozane® Extreme‘s unique composition makes it ideal for effectively and discreetly protecting staff and shielding the wearer’s skin against bites and scratches from service users with challenging behaviour when used to manufacture arm guards, jackets, sweaters etc.

Another important application in healthcare targets the service user’s safety with our tear resistant fabric, Kozane® Invicta, which has been trialled and tested in a mental health setting for tear resistant garments and bedding, and can be safely used for vulnerable patients where traditional clothing and bedding may increase the risk of self-harm.

Sports & Leisure

Kozane® Pro‘s cut, abrasion, tear and puncture resistance means it can be safely used for a range of sporting activities, including ice hockey, speed skating, motorcycling, speed boating, and horse riding as slash resistant clothing and also anti-theft bags and luggage.

Kozane® Invicta is our most durable fabric, suitable for extreme wear and tear applications due to its high abrasion, tear and puncture resistance, such as manufacturing footwear, luggage, outdoor equipment and apparel, upholstery, backpacks etc. where durability is the key feature. Also, it is ideal for protective motorcycle apparel such as shirts and trousers, offering outstanding protection compared to conventional clothing. Our fabric’s under-layer ensures it is comfortable and breathable, soft against the skin, while the high-performance top layer provides the best possible protection against rips and tears should the worst happen.

In fact, the possible applications of our versatile product are only limited by your imagination.
