“Warm in Winter, Cool in Summer”

The patented DERMATUff sleeves offer protection against skin tears, skin flaps and lacerations. They are made from impact resistant yarns purpose spun from a hard aramid, Kevlar® by DuPont, together with Nylon and a specialist weaving system. The weaving system utilises the purpose spun yarn to create a flat woven base with the yarn also ‘looped’ through it producing a mesh of loops on the inside of the stocking and a flat, slightly ribbed surface on the outside.

Using Sleeves as Leg Protectors

Some people prefer to use the sleeves for leg protection rather than use the leg protectors. In this case you can wear the sleeves on your legs. Click here to view the separate size table and for more information about using sleeves as leg protectors.

UK Shipping – £3.50.

Please note that Thin Skin Sleeves and Thin Skin Arm Protectors are two different names for the same product, not two different products.

Our patented thin Skin protection Sleeves are for both male and female.

The looping creates a cushioning and impact resistant effect and the purpose spun yarn further impact, cut, tear and abrasion resistance. The combination of the materials and construction work in a similar manner to body armour.

Three different sizes are available; Small, Medium and Large.

The sleeves are designed for multiple usages with washing between each usage. Above 180 washings the sleeves may begin to loose their efficacy. This would equate to one year’s use if just two pairs are used and washed after each day’s usage.They can also be used as leg protectors instead of stockings if the dimensions are right.

CE marked and registered with the MHRA as a Medical Device Class I.
