Not surprisingly, two of the major hindrances currently affecting how emergency medical professionals do their jobs involve sight, or a lack thereof. Foxfire, a pioneer in the development of energy-efficient, eco-friendly products designed with advanced photoluminescent technology, specializes in assisting first responders to face these obstacles with their illumination products in a number of ways: by improving positional orientation, illuminating search areas, and easily locating personnel. Their new Break Away Safety Vest, an ideal tool for use while performing public safety work, will ensure that you’re highly visible and well-protected, no matter if it’s day or night. Here’s why:
Equipped with both ANSI Class II certified retro-reflective material and advanced photoluminescent technology, you can be assured that you’ll be seen, regardless of how much light is present or absent when wearing the Foxfire Break Away Safety Vest: During daylight hours, it reflects direct light to augment your visibility; at night, it emits a light output of +1,000 mcd/m2 for up to 80 hours when fully charged.
By harnessing the power of any light source, the Foxfire Break Away Safety Vest can quickly and efficiently recharge in only minutes, thereby nullifying the need for an external battery supply. Comfort and convenience meet lofty technical standards: Its advanced photoluminescent technology is UL-tested to meet or exceed the ASTM E2072/3 international standards for photoluminescence-safety materials, while its five-point, break-away feature allows for effortless, effective donning and doffing. Even better, you’ll always be seen from any angle when wearing it, all thanks to its 360-degree visibility, so you won’t have to worry about watching your back.
