Description: High Visibility Pink Safety Vest that meets ANSI 107.
Have you ever walked through a job site and seen a vest that looks odd, or bizarre? One that doesn't seem to fit the style of other safety vests on the market? Have you ever wondered, "How in the world could that vest be ANSI 107 compliant?" and "How do I get one of those for my employees."
The answer to the first question is rather simple, if the manufacturer has the appropriate testing done for background material, the reflective tape and self certifies that a garment meets the ANSI 107 standard you can easily have garments that come in a wide range of colors and designs. There are certain limitations regarding design but those are rather simple to get around. For example and without boring you with specifics (if you do want them you're more then welcome to e-mail us), you have to have a certain amount of reflective tape in the shoulder area.
Take a look at the B-5800P safety vest.
It's unique, it's different and how can it meet the ANSI 107 Class 2 standard? Well, it's rather easy actually. All the components, except for the pink material, have been tested within the guidelines provided by the ANSI 107 standard. As long as you have the appropriate amount of background material (the lime material) and reflective tape you can easily get any garment to meet that standard.
In order to meet ANSI 107 Class 2 you only have to have 775 square inches of background material and 201 square inches of reflective material. Generally speaking, as long as the garment meets those requires and all appropriate materials pass the ANSI 107 standards tests then you can have a compliant ANSI 107 Class 2 garment that's pink , bright and completely different then anything on the market.
Remember, just because it's different doesn't mean it's not compliant. If you have questions about the compliance of a garment just check out the label and call the manufacturer.
