1, The construction
Safety vest is made of reflective tape and fluorescent fabric. Reflective tape will reflect the light when it is exposing the bright condition. It is mainly used by police sanitation man outdoor workers therefore the reflection is really important. According to the ANSI and EN ISO 20471 standards, the minimum area of reflective tape should be greater than 0.13 Sqm and the reflection should be higher than 330cd.
2, Invisible difference: durability and washing cycle
As mentioned above the reflection is very important to safety apparel. The glass beads on the surface of the tape are fragile. Low quality vest will lose the reflection after abrasion and flexing easily. Some of them are even disposable. However safety vest in high quality can bear 100 washing cycles or more.
