Personalized Screen Printing and Laminated ID Services

Personalized screen printing is the easiest way to get your logo printed onto your safety vests or other high-visibility apparel. Having custom printing on your safety vests aids in a quick identification of the individual wearing it and the company or group they are affiliated with. In addition, it provides you with very affordable advertising as well as making your employees as safe as possible by increasing their visibility. Custom safety vests are not just for construction sites or road work. They are also very useful for parking attendants, responders and volunteers at disaster sites, identifying grocery store employees, and for workers at locals where noise makes communication problematic such as airport ground crews.

Safety vests play an important role in keeping you and your team safe in emergency situations, public events, and traffic crossings. Make sure your team members are quickly identifiable by fellow group members and civilians seeking assistance in any situation. The safety vests from SafetyGear Online enhance visibility and increase worker safety across projects in all industries. Our selection includes safety vests, incident command vests, economy vests, surveyor vests, public safety vests, and ANSI-certified Class 2 or Class 3 reflector vests.

ANSI Class 3 Vests

A Class 3 safety vest is designed to provide the most visibility and reflective coverage possible. Particularly, when working high traffic locations, being visible is essential to being safe. Our ANSI class 3 safety vests are made for high visibility requirements, to warn machine operators and drivers of their proximity. For this purpose, the class 3 vests provide sleeves, 465 square inches more of high visibility fabric and 109 inches more of reflective stripes than class 2 vests. The highest risk workers are required to wear the class 3 vests. Heavy traffic professions are the ones that need to be the most visible. Class 3 vests are mandatory where traffic is moving at 50 mph or greater. Additionally, they are made for better visibility for emergency workers on dangerous roadways or low visibility inclement weather such as hurricanes and blizzards. The Class 3 vests from SafetyGear Online are ideal for those who work directly near busy traffic in road crews and professionals working as surveyors, emergency first responders, and more.

ANSI Class 2 Vests

A Class 2 vest is designed with slightly less coverage for those working near roads and are appropriate for public safety workers, airport baggage handlers, or low-traffic-area road crews. SafetyGear Online offers styles with pockets, zipper pulls, and other convenient features. They are intended for workers needing to stand out in environments made up of complex backgrounds. They are suited for use where work is conducted in areas of on-coming traffic or where vehicles are moving 25 mph or faster. Class 2 safety vests are required to have 201 square inches or more of reflective tape. Measurements of this reflective tape can be either 12.2 feet of 1 3/8-inch tape or 8.38 feet of 2-inch tape. The stripes should extend vertically over each shoulder and horizontally around the entire torso with either one or two stripes. All class 2 vests must match or surpass the regulations put forward by American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

ANSI Public Safety Vests

Public safety vests help your organization keep the peace and assist the public with a high-visibility yellow background and reflective taping. SafetyGear Online supplies local and state safety organizations, so our designs include vests with block lettering to clearly identify sheriffs, police, and fire safety professionals. The Public Safety Vests we offer are a great choice for policemen, firemen, sheriffs, or security guards. They are high visibility reflective vests that are breathable and lightweight while including all the features required for the job. Features like handy pockets, adjustability for whatever attire is needed underneath, reflective stripes, and multi-point tearaway for easy removal in case of an emergency. Color coded to identify your area of profession. Many styles include a built-in pocket designed to hold your folded up vest for easy storage. In addition, many vests are designed with a chest pen/pencil pocket, mic tabs, badge holder, and a chest name tag holder. Most are made of solid polyester on the front and breathable mesh fabric at shoulders and back.

Non-ANSI | Incident Command Vests

Incident command vests are an easy and effective way to organize and identify teams of all sizes in low visibility or long-distance conditions and large crowds. Those who work in the field of Incident Command know what it’s like to be required to have enhanced visibility clothing. As the first responders at the scene of any kind of emergency, an Incident Commander can perform their job better when they are able to easily be seen by others. This not only ensures a higher level of safety, but it also makes the responder easily identifiable. Vests are available in multiple colors to provide a quick visual reference as to which area or department the wearer is functioning during a disaster or emergency response. Incident Command vests can be used in conjunction with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Incident Command Systems (ICS).

Serious emergency situations occur when least expected, requiring personnel to perform with the utmost efficiency. Therefore, our incident command vests come with clear plastic pockets, both on the left chest area as well as the upper back. These pockets are designed to insert a custom-made laminated label to identify the type of command or category of the group wearing that specific color. Manufacturing these labels is also a service we can provide. SafetyGear Online offers a selection of colors to designate one or more groups during emergency situations, complete with easy and adjustable front closure designs and optional laminated tiles to print names, organizations, or titles in large block lettering.

ANSI Flame Resistant Vests

Flame resistant safety vests offer some peace of mind when working on a construction site or in another hazardous area. These high-visibility vests are ideal for anyone working with or near equipment that produces flames or sparks, from welders to concrete saws. Flame-resistant labeled vests are constructed of polyester with a flame inhibitor treatment. They are tested by ASTM D6413 standards, that is, an upward flame test. Additionally, they will flame out in fewer than 2 seconds and burn less than 6 inches in length once removed from the fire source. Our FR vests at SafetyGear Online are made with a modacrylic flame-resistant material and carry an ANSI 107 Type R - Class 2 Compliance rating for your protection. However, we must warn you to read the fine print, so you are not tricked into low-cost flame-resistant vests. Customarily, true FR vests cost significantly more than a non-FR vest. If the vest does not meet the standards required for the working conditions, workers are gambling with tragedy. Employers have been fined by OSHA for not furnishing their workers with the proper FR attire. Do yourself a favor get true FR vests from us and don’t get fined.

Non-ANSI | Non-rated Safety Vests

Non-rated safety vests still play an important role in some situations. A non-rated safety vest is still highly visible, which makes them suitable for directing traffic in parking lots, neighborhoods, and other very low-speed areas, less than 5 MPH, or pedestrian-only zones. Additional locations these vests can be used in include where workers are collecting shopping carts, navigating warehouse equipment traffic, oil refineries or extraction points, and mines.

Non-rated safety vests supply the lowest measure of high-visible materials necessary to tell the difference between the wearer and visually difficult surroundings. This means in areas where the hazards will remain well below roadway traffic speeds, object recognition distances are much shorter, thus keeping the wearer safer.

Non-ANSI | Enhanced Visibility Vests

The definition of enhanced visibility apparel refers to any article of clothing, in any color, that possesses retro-reflective striping on it. They are for workers who want some increased visibility but don’t work in high-risk environments. These vests are usually not regulated by any organization or jurisdiction. Enhanced visibility vests are recommended for working in a low-light environment, gas and oil workers, dock workers, and those who work in the vicinity of forklifts or other moving machinery. When considering your working conditions do you ask yourself, what garment will help you be visible during daytime hours? How about asking, what will help your workers stand out against complex backgrounds or the color of the equipment in proximity? To be clear, enhanced visibility vests usually come in neutral colors with retro-reflective striping on them making them not as much for safety purposes than for identification purposes. When a regular safety vest isn’t distinct enough, SafetyGear Online’s enhanced visibility vests offer incident command design characteristics to grab attention. Our enhanced visibility vests are available in multiple colors and come with or without laminate ID cards that provide quicker identification for fellow group members or passerby.
