LED Hi-Viz Vests for the Ultimate Visibility in Low/No Light Conditions

January 25th, 2018 by Victoria Britton

ledvestWe have featured high visibility clothing many times in this blog – it is an essential piece of PPE kit and an area which has ongoing product innovation.

One of our leading suppliers of PPE clothing, Portwest, has recently added two new designs to their range that feature, for the first time, built-in LED lights, to offer improved visibility for the wearer in low light, or even no light, situations.

Equally suited to the comings and goings of a busy logistics deport, or cycling to work on a dark winter’s morning, these LED Hi-Viz vests also feature high visibility polyester material, in either orange or yellow, plus Portwest’s HiVisTex reflective tapes around the body and over the shoulders.

The standard Vega LED Hi-Viz Vest features hook and loop closure for ease of access, whereas the Orion LED Hi-Viz Executive Vest also includes seven useful pockets and a sturdy loop for connecting a radio or hazardous gas detector.  The Orion’s pockets include a clear ID pocket plus a phone & pen holder on the chest.  Rather than hook and loop closure, the Orion LED Executive Vest has a high quality front zip.

Both vests conform to the latest standards, including EN ISO 24071 (Class 2) and ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Type R Class 2.  In addition, the orange variant meets RIS-3279-TOM Issue 1, making it suitable for use in the rail industry.

The Vega LED Hi-Viz Vest is available in sizes S/M, L/XL and 2XL/3XL, whereas the Orion LED Hi Viz Executive vest can be ordered in sizes S-3XL.

In common with most of our PPE clothing, Pennline can customise your high visibility vests via our in-house design and printing service.  Discreet logos front and back offer a useful branding and promotional opportunity, whilst not detracting from the safety credentials of these great additions to your workwear wardrobe.
