About Us

Protective Textiles is a family-owned and run business based in Chessington, Surrey. Our factory houses sophisticated high-frequency welders and sewing machines. Our staff have over 150 years of combined experience between them.

Protective Textiles started life on a farm in 1970, where it was involved in the manufacture and repair of lorry sheets, all-purpose tarpaulins and agricultural covers.

We later moved to the River Thames near Hampton Court. Our knowledge and expertise grew to include manufacturing leg gaiters for hydraulic pit props for the coal mining industry to all types of boat covers and cushions.

We work closely with our clients to create products appropriate to specific needs. We also offer a wide range of standard products including tarpaulins, plastic scaffold sheeting and debris netting, we are more than happy to undertake bespoke custom orders. We have carried out numerous projects for the film and television industry as well as aircraft technical services and the armed services.
