Feeling in the dark about high visibility compliance and performance classes?

Let us help – we have a wide range of high visibility apparel that meets the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Standard. This standard provides a uniform, authoritative guide for the design, performance specifications, and use of high visibility and reflective apparel, including safety vests, shirts, pants, and outerwear.

ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 breaks down high visibility apparel into Types and Performance Classes. The environment in which the worker is wearing the garment dictates the type selected, while the performance classes provide a range of design options that correspond with the level of risk and the certified high vis material and certified reflective tape needs of the wearer.
