Abolox- The best source for High Visibility Safety Vests!
Those in dangerous professions, such as construction and public safety, should always have a Class 2 safety or Class 3 safety vest. The reflective vest used for public safety vests has a high amount of reflective material. Polyester mesh vests keep workers safe and allow them to remain cool during the heat of the summer. Abolox carries ANSI-compliant safety vests with Class 1, 2 and 3 ratings for use across different industries.
Safety Vests for All Situations
Public safety vests are designed to keep people safe who work in dangerous situations. Class 3 safety vests have the most reflective material and are for police and those who work where traffic is traveling quickly. A Class 1 or Class 2 safety vest with pockets is a great surveyors vest, depending on where the surveyor is working. If it's mostly in off the road, a Class 1 vest is sufficient. However, if the surveyor is on a road with light traffic, a Class 2 vest has more visibility.Anyone working in an industry where visibility is a safety factor should wear public safety vests, including crossing guards, surveyors, police officers, firefighters, EMTs, traffic directors, construction workers, and hunters.

High Visibility Vests
Industry standards call for a certain amount of high-visibility background colors, either yellow / green or orange. The "class" of the vest determines how much background and how much reflective tape the vest has.Class 3 vests have the most high-visibility background material and the most reflective tape. Because of the amount of material required by industry standards, Class 3 vests are not sleeveless but may have short sleeves. These vests are normally used when people are in traffic that is traveling over 50 miles per hour.Class 2 vests have a high amount of visibility and have a good amount of reflective tape. They are safe for those who are working where traffic is traveling up to 50 miles per hour.Class 1 vests have the least amount of visibility and are good for construction workers, surveyors, and those working in traffic where speeds do not exceed 25 miles per hour.Some cooling vests only need to be run under water and rung out, while others need to soak up to five minutes. Some vests have removable cooling packs. To activate them, you can put them in a cooler of ice water for 10 minutes, in the freezer for 15 minutes, in the fridge for 25 minutes or near an air conditioner for up to two hours. The packs provide hours of cooling on the hottest of days.Read More Read Less
