When you’re working outdoors, you frequently need or want to be seen by those near you. But those who work on cloudy days or at night can be in great peril, as these low-visibility conditions greatly increase the risk of accidents. This is especially true of road patrols and traffic duty due to lower response times and unpredictable drivers. Wearing the right men’s hi-vis jacket will make it easier for others to notice you as you work, reducing the chances of injury so you’ll be safer. Blauer has an assortment of high-visibility outerwear for men to wear on cool days when they need to be conspicuous.
We offer hi-vis bomber jackets, hardshell jackets, softshell fleece jackets and other ways to keep first responders warm and visible. All of our fluorescent yellow jackets have a special pigment that reflects UV light, so they will still be activated in cloud cover or as dusk when regular sunlight can’t shine through. We also add either ScotchLite™ or IllumiNITE™ lining to many of our jackets that will reflect vehicle headlights for nighttime visibility. We even thought to incorporate black material in some jackets that contrasts with the yellow for daytime clarity. Blauer wants police, fire, medical and security professionals to be visible 24/7, and has the hi-vis men’s jackets to make them so.
Inclement weather can hurt visibility even further, and we have a number of hi-vis rain jackets for men that are made using B.DRY® or GORE-TEX® fabrics to ward off hard downpours. All of our men’s reflective jackets meet ANSI standards for public safety workers. Ordering them will make your department compliant with Federal Highway Administration regulations while still looking like a professional garment. We also have ASTM F 1671 hi-vis EMT parkas and NFPA 1999 hi-vis EMS jackets that protect against common chemicals and bodily fluids. Blauer has the right hi-vis apparel for every responder that is backed by more than 80 years of knowledge and innovation.
