Reflective tape for High Visibility apparel (Class1, Class 2, Class 3)
XM SilverLine reflective tapes are trusted and used by hundreds of brands in Europe. US and Canadian companies also have a solid interest in our reflective products.
To meet the needs of the North American market, we have certified several tapes to the ANSI 107 and CSA Z96 standards in the UL laboratory.
UL lab testing ensures that the tapes meet strict safety standards and can be washed 50 times while maintaining reflective performance above ANSI/CSA requirements. This certification demonstrates the very high level of quality of our tapes that is so important to American and Canadian customers.
ANSI/ISEA 107-CSA Z96 Standards for Reflective Tape
Reflective tape plays a crucial role in enhancing visibility and ensuring the safety of workers in various industries. The ANSI/ISEA 107 and CSA Z96 standards provide guidelines for the performance and design of reflective tape used in high-visibility apparel. Let’s explore these standards in detail.
ANSI/ISEA 107 Standard:
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA), outlines the requirements for reflective tape used in high-visibility safety apparel. This standard categorizes garments into three classes based on the level of visibility required:
- Class 1: Designed for workers in low-risk environments, such as parking lot attendants or warehouse workers. These garments typically require minimal reflective tape.
- Class 2: Intended for workers in environments with higher traffic speeds or complex backgrounds. This class requires a larger amount of reflective tape to ensure optimal visibility.
- Class 3: Ideal for workers in high-risk environments, including construction workers or emergency responders. Class 3 garments must have the highest amount of visible material, including reflective tape, to maximize visibility.
CSA Z96 Standard:
The CSA Z96 standard, developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), also focuses on high-visibility apparel but specifically for Canadian workplaces. This standard shares similarities with the ANSI/ISEA 107 standard but includes additional requirements to accommodate unique Canadian work environments.
Compliance and Certification:
To ensure the quality and performance of reflective tape, it is crucial to choose products that comply with the ANSI/ISEA 107 or CSA Z96 standards. Manufacturers can test their products using approved methods and criteria to obtain certification.
Benefits of Compliant Reflective Tape:
Incorporating compliant reflective tape in safety apparel offers several benefits. It improves visibility in low-light conditions, increases the recognition of workers by motorists and machinery operators, and reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. Compliant reflective tape also enhances worker confidence and safety culture within organizations.
In conclusion, the ANSI/ISEA 107 and CSA Z96 standards provide clear guidelines for the design, performance, and classification of reflective tape used in high-visibility safety apparel. By adhering to these standards and choosing certified products, employers can ensure the highest level of safety for their workforce.
