The reflective vest belongs to protective clothing equipped with special tapes with reflective properties. In addition, it is in a color that easily distinguishes it from the background. Vests usually can be found in fluorescent yellow or orange colors. Wearing reflective vests increases the visibility of the user both during the day and after dark. We recommend them for renovation and construction workers, security services, drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists.
It is said that after dark, pedestrians not equipped with reflective elements are visible to drivers (in low beams, also called short ones) from a distance of only 20-30 m. Unfortunately, such a distance does not allow the driver to execute a maneuver sufficiently quickly pedestrian. However, when a person is wearing a reflective safety vest, it is noticeable from a distance of 130-150 m.
In order to improve visibility, it is worth equipping yourself with smaller reflective elements than just the same reflective vests. They can be pendants attached to backpacks or bags or bands, which can be worn on the wrists of the hands or at the height of the ankles on the legs. Additionally, it is worth using reflective tapes for sewing. They can be sewn into cape, jackets, hats, sweatshirts, trousers, but also for backpacks, bags, suitcases, etc.
