High Visibility Gear
Make sure you are seen when you’re on a worksite with high visibility clothing and accessories. Phelps offers High Visibility and reflective gear such as vests, bibs and jumpsuits, jackets, pants, and harnesses. The gear uses bright fluorescent colors and retro-reflective materials so you really stand out against the background, making it easy to see you.
All of the High Visibility gear from Phelps PPE meets or exceeds the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 American National Standard for High Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear. The garments can be used at work 24 hours a day, providing the wearer with a high level of conspicuity. The High Visibility Garment Types from Phelps PPE are offered in three classes or types.
- Class 1/Type O is worn at non-complex work locations. There shouldn’t be vehicles moving at roadway speeds in these areas.
- Class 2/Type R or P has more high visibility material than Class 1, allowing the wearer to be seen more clearly.
- Class 3/Type R or P offers even greater visibility of the wearer in both complex backgrounds and through the full range of body movements. The garments have mandatory placement of bright materials and reflective tape on sleeves, legs, and other portions of the clothing.
Phelps also offers Class E Supplemental items. These include pants, shorts, overalls, and gaiters that have to be worn with Class 2 or 3 items to be considered in the Class 3 category.
Other High Visibility accessories that Phelps PPE carries are bump caps, ear protectors, rucksacks, armbands, and helmet stickers.
