High Visibility Clothing

High-Visibility PPE Boosts Safety and Productivity

High-visibility clothing is a luminescent form of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). It protects the wearer by making them more visible in low-light conditions.

High-vis clothes are produced from brightly-colored materials and feature reflective stripes or logos. They’re commonly used in industrial and commercial settings in which accidents or injuries may occur if attention isn’t drawn to the workers who are present.

It can often be overwhelming for managers and procurement personnel to find the right PPE for their work environment. Fortunately, at Aabaco Industries, we have a collaborative spirit, almost 4 decades of experience, and an expansive catalog of high-visibility PPE — so we’re uniquely positioned to help.

What are the 3 Classes of High-Visibility Jackets?

High-visibility clothes are divided into three classifications: Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3. These classes define the application & design standards for conspicuity PPE.

Class 1 hi-vis clothing is intended for use in locations wherein the vehicle traffic never exceeds 25 miles per hour (MPH), or about 40 kilometers per hour (km/h). Class 2 high-vis gear is worn in areas in which speeds never exceed 50 MPH (~80 km/h), and Class 3 gear is intended for work environments in which speeds will increase 50 MPH.

Each classification also requires a certain amount of reflective tape and high-visibility background material. This High-Visibility Jacket, for example, qualifies as Class 3 because of its 2-inch, ANSI-compliant reflective material.

What are the 3 Types of High Visibility Clothes?

The 3 types of high-vis clothing are: Type O, Type R, and Type P. These indicate the appropriate environment for each high-visibility garment.

Type O is appropriate for “off-road” work environments, while Type R is intended for roadways. Public safety officers, such as firefighters, paramedics, and police, require Type P clothing.

The Benefits of Type R High Visibility Gear

Type R hi-vis gear is the ideal solution for a diverse number of industrial and commercial operations. This is because it provides the proper degree of protection for a broad range of applications.

This Type R Hi-Vis Jacket, for example, is weatherproof, insulated, and as versatile as it is comfortable. However, if comfort is a particular priority for your crew, and the weather is less demanding, you may prefer this Hi-Viz Hoodie.

These high-vis hoodies are perfect for staying safe and cozy in cooler climates. Furthermore, because these high-vis sweatshirts optimize for comfort, your workers’ productivity is less likely to be inhibited by clunky clothing.

Don’t Overlook High Visibility Headwear!

Hi-vis headwear is also vital for many workplaces in both hot and cold climates. Fortunately, we offer a range of high-vis headgear, including:
