Discover KnitMesh Technologies’ Slash-Proof Mesh

KnitMesh Technologies’ Slash-Proof Mesh has become a popular solution for protection against vandal damage in various transportation systems such as buses, trains and underground seating. The knitted wire mesh structure captures knife blades without causing extensive damage, making it an effective tool for enhancing public safety and reducing repair costs.

Aside from transportation systems, the Slash-Proof Mesh is also utilised within body armour to create anti-slash jackets for the army and police force. The mesh can be co-knitted with synthetics to produce a composite material that is lightweight and durable, thus offering maximum protection against potential attacks.

KnitMesh Technologies’ Slash-Proof Mesh is accessible in various sizes and is often supplied on cardboard cores, making it easier for further processing and customisation. The knitted wire mesh structure of the product ensures that it remains strong yet flexible, providing superior protection without compromising on comfort.



Slash-Proof Mesh is used in the upholstery of seats in buses, trains, and underground transportation systems. It provides a protective layer to prevent slashing, ensuring longer lifespan and increased safety for passengers.

Curtain-Side Lorries


Curtain-side lorries often have side curtains that can be easily slashed, allowing unauthorised individuals to gain access to the cargo. By integrating Slash-Proof Mesh into the curtain material, it becomes difficult for anyone to cut through, offering enhanced security and protection for the transported goods.

Body Armour


Slash-Proof Mesh is incorporated into jackets and other protective garments used by law enforcement personnel, security guards, and individuals who require personal protection. The mesh provides excellent strength and resistance against slashing attacks, reducing the risk of injury.

Butchers Gloves


Slash-Proof Mesh is commonly used in gloves worn by butchers and meat processing workers. The mesh acts as a barrier against sharp tools and blades, minimising the risk of accidental cuts or injuries while handling knives and working with raw meat.

Why Knitted Wire Mesh is a Top Choice for Slash-Proofing

Knitted wire mesh has been gaining popularity as a top choice for slash-proofing materials, especially in applications that require high levels of protection against sharp-edged weapons. This type of mesh is made from interlocking loops of wire, which provide a high degree of flexibility and toughness.

The unique structure of knitted wire mesh makes it an excellent option for slash-proofing, as it is capable of capturing knife blades and preventing extensive damage. Unlike more rigid woven fabrics, which allow the blade more purchase to slice through composite materials, knitted wire mesh structures are designed to compress the blade, deflecting it away from the target.

In addition to its impressive slash-proofing capabilities, knitted wire mesh also offers other benefits that make it an attractive choice for protective equipment. Its flexibility and lightweight design make it comfortable to wear over extended periods, without restricting movement or compromising mobility.

Knitted wire mesh is also highly resistant to corrosion and impact, making it a durable choice for harsh environments. These properties allow it to be used in a range of applications, from protective clothing and accessories to vehicle armour and industrial safety barriers.
