HIGH VIZ: WHY DO WE NEED FLOURESCENT FOR THE DAY AND REFLECTIVE FOR NIGHT?

HIGH VIZ: WHY DO WE NEED FLOURESCENT FOR THE DAY AND REFLECTIVE FOR NIGHT?

As with so much in life, we know that something does work but we don’t give much thought to how it works! Well here’s a short explanation of how high visibility gear - like our sashes and helmet covers - work:

Where you have fluorescent colours, the sun’s ultraviolet rays react with them and gives a glowing effect. This helps increase visibility in the day, and more so when the light isn’t great such as when the sun starts to go down, or there’s fog.

When the sun has gone, and cars have got their lights on, this is when the light bounces off the reflective tape so you can be seen better.


And this is why the best idea is to have something that’s both fluorescent and reflective so you’re visible both day and night, and you don’t have to think about swapping from one accessory to another.

If you're looking for a quick, easy and cost-effective solution to keeping your children visible when out and about, check out our high visibility helmet covers and sashes. Available in a range of fab colours, and adjustable for different sized bodies!
