Personal protection

An increase in threats and violence, both locally and around the world, makes it essential that personal protection for those who work in potentially life-threatening environments can withstand any threats they might encounter. 

Both overt and covert solutions are increasingly being used for multi-threat protection against threats such as bullets, fragment blasts, knives and even hypodermic needles. TenCate Pro-Tector® provide this kind of protection in one single non-metallic high-performance solution.  

TenCate Pro-Tector® is currently being used by many different law enforcement organisations, security companies and military forces in operations around the world, in which outstanding protection under varying conditions and in unforeseen situations is essential.

Customised solutions


Working closely with decision makers and garment manufacturers, we can investigate specific potential threats that could be encountered, in order to configure a suitable lightweight concept. The weatherproof characteristics of TenCate Pro-Tector®, as well as the back face deformation-reducing effects with no need for a trauma liner or extensive stitching, provide key additional advantages.
