3m scotchlite reflective tape review

In 1999, the American National Standards Institute laid down standards for reflective tapes and clothing worn by workers. These were to decrease the amount of accidents that can injure and even kill American workers. These standards are fluid and have been refined many times over the years as the times change and as more hazards appear in the workplace. Since the standards were put in place, high visibility clothing has been broken into classes that define minimum sizes, colors, and the quality of the reflective tapes.

Defining Class 2 Standards- Class 2 is reserved to define the standards for people who are working around moving vehicles and need to have garments that have high visibility. Anyone who is near traffic that is exceeding 25 mph or on a job site where there is moving machinery must have clothing that passes Class 2 qualifications. This includes police, utility workers, emergency personnel, firefighters and construction workers. The standards cover clothing, but headgear and other safety apparel as well.

Garment Size- The garment that any reflective tape or material is attached to must also meed certain standards. Any item that has a reflective material must be 775 square inches. The color must stand out against the background and be easily visible. The most common choices are fluorescents and neon, and it does not need to be reflective itself. Green/yellow, red/orange and red are common color choices. With these colors, no matter how small the garment is, it will be able to be seen and stand out for high-visibility.

Reflective Material- Class 2 standards dictate the reflective placement, size, and amount.

For optimal visibility the standards state there must be at least one band of the reflective material around the torso of the garment and bands need to be spaced two inches apart to allow the background to show through. The reflective material used must be at least 1.375 inches in width and there must be no less than 4 yards of material over the entire garment. There is a 2 inch wide tape available, and if the manufacturer uses that size, the amount of total tape on the garment must total 2.8 yards.

Reflective Performance- Any reflective tape used on a garment must meet standards of visibility. ANSI measures that with different scales. For Class 2 qualification, a reflective tape must meet a visibility rating of 2 on Table 5, or a rating of 1 on Table 6. This is according to ANSI 107-2004 standard. A garment must also go through rigorous testing to ensure tensile strength and flexibility, and how well the reflective performance rates after multiple washings. Also, a garment must stand up to tests of abrasion and how well it holds up in harsh weather conditions.

ANSI Certification- All testing is done in a third party laboratory, and if the garment passes inspection, then it is given it's certification. Any garment passing the tests will be labeled with the manufacturer, the type of product and the size, safe use and care instructions and what level of ANSI standard qualification it meets. The garment will also have a picture of the class and it's level of performance
