100% Stainless Steel for Reliable Protection

This Manulatex Butchers 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 Manulatex T+ Butchers 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

The Manulatex T+ 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.
