You’re wearing high visibility clothing not only because it is required by law and health and safety regulations, but because you’re smart. High-visibility clothing reduces the risk of accidents and fatalities in any environment where visibility is crucial. This is a sheer countless range of circumstances such as in places when there is low light and poor visibility, where there is vehicular traffic (of any kind, including forklifts, trains, cars, busses, …), in construction areas, in harbours, in storage isles, …
Hi-vis clothes are characterized by their fluorescent colour in combination with reflective striping. The fluorescent colour such as hi-vis orange, hi-vis yellow and hi-vis red, catches the eye and is easily discernible during the day regardless of the lighting conditions. The reflective striping improve visibility even further especially in the dark as they catch the light from external light sources (e.g. headlights) and reflect it. We only use the best fluorescent and reflective materials for our vast range of high visibility clothes to ensure their durability.
We always try to offer smart solutions to changing working conditions. Our Interchangeable Lining System or I.L.S. allows you to quickly adapt your outfit, by simply adding or removing the lining. To this purpose, the outer jacket with I.L.S. functionality has a corresponding, extra zipper inside. In this way, you are protected against the harsh cold of the winter. Then later, when temperatures rise again, the extra zipped in garment can very easily be removed, thus making the jacket usable for the summer.
