What Is Hi Vis PPE Workwear?
Hi vis workwear makes it easy for people to see you due to the fluorescent colours and makes sure that you are visible regardless of the background. Moreover, they have reflective stripes sewn onto the clothing to give added visibility when light is shone on them. Our Hi Vis Workwear range includes trousers, vests, and headgear.
What Is the Purpose of High Visibility Clothing?
If you work in a hazardous environment, it is important to wear hi vis clothing to help reduce the risk of accidents. For example, construction workers deal with moving heavy equipment and it is important to wear Hi Vis Workwear so that the people using these machines can see you.
For some professions, it is a legal requirement to wear this clothing. Failure to do so may lead to prosecution and it is critical to adhere to the legal health and safety requirements of your profession.
Hi Vis Workwear is also important for identification purposes. Clients may find it easy to identify the company staff if they are wearing hi vis clothing.
What Type of Material Is Used in Hi Vis Clothes?
Hi vis items increase the wearer's visibility by using tape containing strong light-reflecting properties. This tape is made from micro-prismatic and glass bead reflective materials and reflects when light is shone onto the clothing. This means that you are likely to notice someone wearing Hi Vis clothing even from a distance.
What Are the 3 Classes of High Visibility Clothing?
The high visibility clothing items are classified according to the degree of visibility that they offer. Below are the different categories:
The high visibility clothing items in this class are used in low-risk areas for example when the wearer is quite far away from work traffic. Yellow and orange are the most appropriate colours in this case.
If you operate in an area with a medium level of risk, this is the right item and level of visibility for you. The Kapton Hi Vis in this case has the appropriate reflective strips to make sure that you are fully visible.
The high visibility clothing items in this category are reserved for those who operate in areas with a high amount of work traffic. They offer the most visibility, and similar to class 2, our Kapton Hi Vis is the best option for you and your team too.
