About Reflective Material
Mankind has many inventions, but we think that reflective materials are also one of the great inventions. Since having this material, we have indeed saved countless lives in terms of road safety and traffic safety. Whether on road traffic signs, cars, clothing, shoes, etc., the addition of this reflective material allows us to recognize each other more safely on the road at night, thereby reducing traffic accidents. Later, in order to standardize this traffic safety product, various countries produced many different laws and regulations. A lot of specifications have also been made in terms of wearable products.
The Importance Of The PPE Regulation
Strongly give attention to regulation is at the heart of the PPE industry considering. Around the world, regulatory requirements can typically gas the progress of commercial well-being and private security. As applied sciences, worksites, and existence evolve, the visibility of individuals and security requirements is constantly being refined for enhanced and off-the-job protection. All kinds of PPE manufacturers are working with universities, associations, standardization, and analysis institute worldwide to make the world a safer, extra-seen place. All our work relies on visibility science ideas. We all need to be dedicated to performing human issue research to confirm and maintain product developments and serve to enhance world visibility requirements.
The New Medium Risk Standard: EN 17353
Background to the Standard The EU has decided that there will be no different standard depending on the end-user activity.
The ISO 20471 is, therefore, to be used for high-risk situations.
EN 1150 has been incorporated into the new standard with modifications.
EN 13356 for accessories is partially integrated into the new medium risk standard.
New visibility standards in Europe
EN 17353 Classification
Visibility in daylight
Classification: Type A
Equipment for daylight
Type A equipment worn by users where the risk of not being seen only exists in daylight conditions.
This equipment only uses fluorescent material as an enhanced visibility component.
Visibility in dark working conditions
Classification: Type B
Equipment for dark conditions.
Type B equipment is worn by users where the risk of not being seen exists only in dark conditions.
This equipment only uses retroreflective material as an enhanced visibility component.
Visibility in daylight and dark working conditions
Classification: Type AB
Equipment for daylight and dark conditions.
Type AB equipment is worn by users where the risk of not being seen is present in daylight, twilight, and dark conditions. This equipment uses fluorescent as well as retroreflective material and/or combined performance materials as enhanced visibility components.
