  • UK Policemen and the Urgent Need for Adequate Hand Protection From Knife Attacks

    In the line of duty, police officers face a multitude of dangers every day. From volatile situations to potential physical altercations, their job demands constant vigilance and preparedness. Yet, amidst the challenges they encounter, one critical aspect often overlooked is the lack of sufficient personal protection equipment (PPE), especially concerning hand protection when dealing with knife attacks.

    The horrendous recent case of the unprovoked attack on a young boy on his way to school in Hainault, the Police response and an Officer receiving serious damage to her hands is a case in point. Not one of the 3 officers who eventually caught the attacker had hand protection and one of those officers received life changing injuries to her hand.

  • Knife crime on the rise - but how can we prevent it?

    Knife crime is becoming a growing concern in many parts of the world. Yet despite this education about anti-cut blade resistant clothing which can help keep people safe has been virtually non-existent. The UK, as an example, has seen a significant rise in such incidents over the past few years. According to official government statistics, there were over 44,000 offences involving knives in England and Wales in 2019.

  • Incredible protection from our new Safe-Pro long sleeved t-shirt

    This new V-neck long sleeved T-shirt is as comfortable and, more importantly, protective as anything we have ever seen.

    The Safe-Pro anti-slash T-shirt is made from a material called UMHWPE which is velvety soft, extremely light and, therefore, very comfortable to wear. This material is so strong that it is actually classified as a Super-plastic. These fibres have an incredibly high tensile strength when compared to other Thermoplastics and they are even stronger than steel. High strength steel is c.900MPa and UHMWPE is c.3000MPa. The material is so strong that it is being used to make containers as well as ropes and nets for the fishing industry.

  • Once again Bladerunner are helping to keep the Press safe - a never ending story!

    It looks like Aleppo all over again.

    In this age of 24-hour news, and social media we are able to watch from the comfort of our own homes the destruction, as it occurs, almost like some video game that we see our children play. But in this case it’s real and people are dying.

    The fact that we see these images, almost first-hand, is because of so many brave reporters and camera operators who are putting themselves in harms way to make sure that the world sees the brutality of war and the total destruction that one rogue state can bring down on an innocent and peaceful neighbouring state.

  • Ukraine - The Press - Protection

    Life can be so strange. For many years we at have been supplying the press with bullet-proof vests.

    Just when it seemed that everything was settling down and we had peace on most of Planet Earth up pop the Russians to start looking like they could be invading Ukraine.

    A rapid gearing up of stocks is required by many news companies who have been caught out at a time when freight costs are making it so expensive to ship goods around the world.

  • Hospitality opening up - knife crime seems to be on the rise

    After a year of the country being in and out of lockdown there seems to be a beacon of light on the horizon.

    Like so many other service industries security companies have been hit hard with security personnel not needed to keep pubs, clubs and shopping centres secure.

    But now things seem to be changing. People are back out on the streets shopping, eating in outdoor restaurants and drinking in pub gardens. And wouldn’t you know it. All of a sudden we seem to be reading about more knife crime.

  • Demand for protective clothing on the increase in France

    Having had many years of experience selling cut-proof and slash-proof clothing we are aware that our sales often respond to world events. Our sales reached peak levels during the Hong Kong protests when students were battling the Police and outside criminal gangs in response to the change in extradition and other laws being imposed upon them by the government in China. Students and other protesters felt considerably safer if they were wearing our Kevlar lined anti-slash T-shirts or our slash-resistant hooded tops.

  • International Unrest Results in Increased Demand for Protective Clothing

    It seems that the many countries are in a state of uprising;

    • VENEZUELA where the economy has been destroyed by the governments’ poor management of the economy.
    • HONG KONG where the indigenous population are rising up against interference from the Government of mainland China.
    • SUDAN where protesters are looking for an “Arab spring” type revolution where “Justice” and “Freedom” are a constant rallying cry.
    • BOLIVIA where the public are claiming that there was clear electoral fraud in the 2019 general election
    • CATALONIA where residents are looking for autonomy and independence from the rest of Spain.

    In all of these countries (And many more) the citizens are in direct conflict with the Police, and sometimes the army as well, and are having to suffer the consequences of physical attack, the use of water cannons and, in most cases, the effects of tear gas.

  • Serving Police Constable thankful for Bladerunner protection

    We were truly delighted to receive glowing feedback from a serving Police Constable this week. From the moment we started developing our range of Bladerunner protective clothing, we always had the Police and Armed Forces in mind. Day in, day out they risk their lives protecting us and particularly with the rise in knife crime, this is our opportunity to protect them. Our products are widely used across many police forces, commonly our covert, cut resistant long and short sleeved shirts, which many officers wear beneath their uniform, providing an extra level of cut, abrasion and puncture resistance.

  • The Return of the Rhino

    One of Bladerunner’s very early products, going back some 15 years, were the Rhino Duty puncture resistant gloves, one of our bestselling items in the early years, due to their strength, durability and versatility, as well as their high level cut and puncture resistance.

    Over the years we have developed new and unique protective gloves using a variety of materials, including DuPont™ and Kevlar®, Dyneema and Bladenoma®, each with their own properties and benefits to the end user.

    The Fortis for example was specifically designed to be lightweight and supersoft, using Aniline leather, but doesn't have the same levels of cut and puncture resistance as the Rhino.

    Our Coyote gloves were designed to offer warmth and the highest level of protection, using our trademarked Bladenoma® anti-slash fibre, maximising finger flexibility and including an added layer of Kevlar on the exterior for double protection. Our Police & Security gloves even come with touchscreen enabled finger tips.

    Even with our continuous research and development, and release of new dynamic cut resistant gloves, the popularity of the Rhino glove hasn't ceased, but with the demand of our other products being so high, we only stocked limited sizes of the Rhino.

    The Gardeners Glove of Choice

    All of a sudden early last year we got a telephone call from a landscape gardening company whose staff were constantly damaging their hands whilst pruning Roses and other thorny vegetation. As we carried very few sizes in our Rhino anti-slash puncture resistant gloves range we put a special order through to our factory and we made up a special batch for the landscaping company and guess what! They loved them.

    Suddenly we have discovered a whole new market for our Rhino gloves. Since then we have sold masses of them. We now have them in stock in all sizes, from Small through to 4XL.

    Rhino gloves are our very toughest units designed to take on the jobs that other gloves would just not be able to cope with. They are used by everyone from Police through to train cleaning staff who never know what they may be picking up when they have to collect rubbish or scour the ground for evidence. Now they have been joined by the gardening community.

    Not only are these gloves puncture resistant they are also blade-cut resistant which is essential if you are working with knives, sharp gardening tools or your hands are likely to come into contact with broken glass or anything else that may be damaging to your hands.

    Rhino gloves are manufactured from a mix of leather, Neoprene and Dupont Kevlar. The gloves come with a wide Velcro wrist strap and they are aerated to help keep your hands cool.

    Rhino Duty Glove in Numbers

    As with all of our gloves they have been tested by a recognised UK test laboratory to standard EN388: 2003 and the tests were incredibly impressive:

    Puncture resistance - method 6.4: Level 4
    Tear resistance - method 6.3 Level 4
    Blade cut resistance - method 6.2 Level 5
    Abrasion resistance - method 6.1 Level 4

    Bearing in mind the highest level achievable under this test is level 5 you can see how impressive the test results were.

    Investing in a pair of Rhino gloves is a small price to pay to protect your hands from all the dangers that the world can throw at them.
