Reflective sheeting is an important component of traffic control products, such as signs and barricades, that help to improve visibility and safety on the road. However, not all reflective sheeting is created equal. In fact, there are several different types of reflective sheeting that offer varying levels of performance and durability. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the differences in reflective sheeting in traffic control products.
Type I Reflective Sheeting
Type I reflective sheeting is the most basic type of reflective sheeting and is typically used for non-critical traffic control signs, such as parking lot signs. It is made of an enclosed lens material and has a relatively low level of reflectivity. Type I sheeting is not recommended for use in high-speed traffic or low-light conditions.
Type II Reflective Sheeting
Type II reflective sheeting is an intermediate-grade reflective sheeting that is commonly used for
Safety vests are an essential part of personal protective equipment (PPE) for anyone who works in an environment with moving vehicles or machinery. But not all safety vests are created equal. In fact, there are several different types of safety vests, each with their own purpose and level of protection. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the different types of safety vests, including Class 1, Class 2, and more.
Class 1 Safety Vests
Class 1 safety vests are the least visible and offer the lowest level of protection. They are typically used in low-risk environments, such as parking lots or warehouse settings. Class 1 vests must have at least 155 square inches of reflective tape and be a minimum of 217 square inches in total size.
Class 2 Safety Vests
Class 2 safety vests are designed for workers who are in areas where there is a moderate risk of being struck by moving vehicles or equipment. This includes construction sites,

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States, affecting over 350,000 people each year. It can strike anyone, regardless of age or health status, and can occur at any time and in any place. The only way to survive an SCA is with immediate treatment, which is why it's crucial to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) readily available. In today's blog post, we will explore the importance of having an AED and how it can save lives.
An AED is a portable electronic device that delivers an electric shock to the heart to help restore its normal rhythm. When used within the first few minutes of an SCA, an AED can significantly increase the victim's chances of survival. The longer the delay in treatment, the lower the chances of survival. This is why having an AED readily available is so important.
AEDs are designed to be easy to use, even for those with little or no medical training. They typically come with step-by-step instructions and voice

Class 1 vests are for those working in low-impact areas. According to OSHA, this includes areas where traffic flow does not exceed 25 mph. Workers should also be stationed a good distance away from the traffic to prevent injury. Class 1 vests are typically used by parking attendants, delivery drivers, and roadside assistance personnel in low traffic areas.
All class 1 vests should have a minimum of 155 square inches of reflective tape. Dimensions of the reflective tape can be either 6.46 linear feet of 2-inch tape or 9.39 linear feet of 1 3/8-inch tape. The reflective stripes should be around the middle in a 360º stripe and above each shoulder. These vests should also have a bright yellow or orange color.
