The ANSI standard was adopted by American National Standards Institute and the Safety Equipment Association on June 1, 1999. The voluntary standard (ANSI/ISEA 107-1999) was patterned after the EN-471 standard currently in use in Europe. The standard sets minimum requirements for background material, reflective material, design, labeling, and other components and tolerances uses in the manufacturing of high-visibility clothing. As we start to use the standard, it will evolve as both manufactures and end users supply input as to its effectiveness at the work site.
SafetyLine has developed a line of vests that are ANSI compliant and offer a lot of variety to the end user. Each garment will comply starting at the medium size on up. As the standard is modified we will follow with the appropriate changes in our clothing. We have started with the vests so we can plan for what you like best. Then, we will continue on to the jackets, parkas, rainwear, and other products. Watch this website for future developments.
We are currently using two types of 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material. The 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material - 8710 Silver Transfer Film and the 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material - 6187 Fluorescent Lime Yellow High Gloss Trim meets the level 2 specification for coefficient of retroreflection and performance. Both materials are approved for class 1, class 2, and class 3 high visibility safety apparel. The High Gloss material in the florescent lime yellow and white can also be used as combined performance retroreflective materials.
The SafetyLine ANSI standard line of clothing currently includes:
- Class 2 Vests
- Class 2 Jackets
- Class 1 Vests
- Class 1 Mesh Vests
