What are the characteristics of a high visibility vest?

High visibility vests have acquired primary relevance in the workplace and in various daily activities, mainly due to the increase in the need to guarantee safety and minimize the risks of accidents. These garments are specifically designed to maximize the visibility of the wearer, even in low light or reduced visibility conditions.

  • Reflective materials: These vests incorporate retroreflective bands or areas that, when illuminated by a light source, such as a vehicle’s headlights, reflect the light back toward its origin, which significantly increases the user’s visibility.

  • Bold colors: Bright, fluorescent colors, such as yellow or orange, are common in these types of vests, allowing them to stand out in virtually any environment.

  • Flexibility and lightness: They are designed to be comfortable and not restrict movement, allowing the user to perform their tasks without inconvenience.

  • Regulations: They comply with specific standards and regulations to guarantee their effectiveness, and in many cases, their use has become mandatory in certain situations and work contexts.

  • Diversity of designs: They adapt to different activities and contexts, from road work to night operations in warehouses.

Main characteristics of high visibility vests and retroreflective vests

difference between high visibility vest and retroreflective vest

High visibility vests are the most used pieces of clothing in the field of high visibility clothing. At T2S Ibérica, you can find various models of our vests, all of them are designed with a completely breathable fabric and following the Spanish regulations for high visibility clothing.

The main difference with retroreflective vests is that they include a microspherical retroreflective tape from the RETHIOEX® brand. The main advantage of this is the guarantee of always providing unbeatable visibility whether it is day or night, guaranteeing optimal visibility both day and night.

On the other hand, it is necessary to highlight that reflective clothing must always comply with regulated safety regulations.

If it did not do so, this would mean serious problems for the company, since it could have serious consequences for not allowing adequate visibility of its workers.
