At Safeguard Clothing®, we are committed to ensuring that all our armour is of the highest standards, and this is achieved by guaranteeing that our products are tested to the highest standard. We keep the testing of all of our armour compliant with HOSDB standards.
The UK Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), now known as the Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST), is seen as the world leader for the testing and grading of edged blade and spiked weapon testing for body armour.
We guarantee that all products made by SafeGuard Clothing® are made in compliance with CAST standards of protection1, and we ensure this by mirroring testing methods and endeavouring to exceed their required standards of protection.
