Limber better than butchers chainmail

Introducing TurtleSkin's new technology Limber Anti-Cut Protection, for all the mechanical threats in food processing. Turtleskin Limber Anti-Cut is new technology to the Food Processing Market that you and your operators will really love. Limber is easy to use in every category, weight, flexibility, protection, and cost. Limber is comprised of stainless steel mosaic built on soft textile for the comfort needed for a long day at work. The Limber products are built to two levels of performance  HOSDB 50 or 80 newton slash. This slash performance demonstrates LIMBER’s superior performance over even the heaviest butchers chainmail, and other aluminum mosaics without the added mass.  The LIMBER slash rating using the HOSDB test is designed to simulate forces and speeds that humans can produce with a knife.

Compare LIMBER to chainmail


Industry standard butchers chainmail (0.7mm x 7mm dia) will only withstand 30 newtons of slash, about half of the force of the lower of the 2 Limber Anti-Cut products. Because Limber is a textile-steel mosaic it provides much more comfort than an all-metal product like butchers chainmail. Heavy all-metal products like butchers chainmail can be rough and irritating on the skin. Limber is more comfortable and better protection.


Limber products can be used with our integrated waterproof covers or with your existing aprons and sleeves.

Some customers find mosaic or chainmail metal systems are just too heavy and not acceptable. These users really prefer an all-textile system for comfort and productivity. TurtleSkin BladeTecT has been engineered to provide Cut ANSI Levels 2, 3, 4 and also 80 newton HOSDB slash protection. BladeTecT is a soft knit fabric that feels like a light pullover and can be worn on its own or with your current  garments to protect you.

BladeTecT is so light and soft it does not feel like PPE so you can get the protection without that heavy rough PPE feel. BladeTecT is offered in moderate and high protection versions with maximum comfort and wearability. BladeTecT can be used with your existing aprons and other outer covers. These garments are fully compatible with all your typical sanitizing solutions and washing systems.
