“Protecting you where you need it most“ ™
High Visibility & Traffic Wear


    The Canadian Standard for high-visibility clothing is similar to the EN 471 and ANSI 107 standards but allows for "bright colours" to be used in flame resistant applications and has specific design requirements including requirement to have an "X" style reflective trim on the back of the garment to designate to the driver if the worker is facing away.  The bright colour requirement means more fabric materials can be used under the flame resistant requirements in Canada than in the EU or the US but the other requirements are basically the same.

There are three levels of protection:

    Class 1 - Class 1 defines the lowest visibility level e.g. High-visibility trousers with two 5 cm reflective bands around each leg.  These become Class 3 when worn with a Class 3 jacket.

     Class 2 - Class 2 defines an intermediary visibility level.  Example: vests.  - Two 5 cm bands of reflective tape around the body or on one 5 cm band around the body and braces to both shoulders.

     Class 3 - Class 3 defines the highest level of visibility.  Example: jacket with long sleeves, jacket and trouser suit.  - Two 5 cm bands of reflective tape around the body, arms and braces over both shoulders.
