Manulatex Lightinox Steel Chainmail Butcher's Apron

If you work in meat processing or as a butcher, chainmail gloves are a really safe option, but won't help in case your blade comes in contact with another part of your body. The Manulatex Lightinox Steel Chainmail Butcher's Apron offers comprehensive torso and upper leg protection, without being too restrictive. Supplied in two sizes with an adjustable design, it's easy to find a comfortable and secure fit.

What Safety Standards Has the Manulatex Steel Apron Been Tested To?

This Manulatex Chainmail Apron has been tested against the highest safety standards and is certified to the following:

  • EN ISO 13998: Standard for aprons, trousers and vests protecting against cuts and stabs from hand knives

Need a More Protective Apron

This Lightinox Chainmail Tunic is lightweight, flexible and offers fantastic protection. However, if you're looking for a thicker and more cut-proof apron, we also carry the Manulatex Flexinox, which uses larger and heavier interlocking steel plates.

Compatible with Manulatex Range for More Complete Protection

The Manulatex Chainmail Butcher's Apron gives you fantastic torso and upper leg protection, but if you also want hand and arm protection, consider the Manulatex Chainmail Gloves below. The shoulder-length variations also clip directly into this apron with the press studs, so there won't be any exposed part of the arm.

100% Stainless Steel for Reliable Protection

This Manulatex Butcher's Apron is made of 100% stainless steel. Not only does this provide reliable and safe protection from cuts and stabs, but it ensures that the apron is hardwearing and will have a long service life.

Ideal for Butchers and Other Meat Processing

When working in butchery or in meat and fish processing, the work can be fast and involve seriously sharp blades. This can easily result in injuries and accidents if you are not protected. This Lightinox Steel Apron protects you in case of slips and falls with knives, while remaining lightweight and flexible enough to not get in your way.

Also Fantastic for Textile Cutting and Leatherwork

Despite the name, the Manulatex Lightinox Butcher's Apron isn't just for meat processing. If you work in industries like textiles, fabrics and leather, you might also use or be exposed to knives. The versatile build of this Lightinox Tunic will help keep you safe, and free from cuts and stabs on your torso.
