Youngstown offers a select line of performance gloves featuring safety lime coloring and reflective 3M™ Scotchlite™ to increase visual awareness in low light applications. Retroflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came. If you are working on the roadside and a car’s headlight hit the Scotchlite™ on your glove it will reflect back to the driver to make you more visible (and avoided).
Years ago, orange was the predominant color of roadside safety and it was found on everything from signs to cones to worker vests. However, over time we became more desensitized to orange so lime coloring was introduced. Today, we mostly see orange on inanimate objects (cones, signs) and lime goes on the humans to help us visual differentiate. Youngstown’s high visibility series are all made up of safety lime coloring along with reflectivity on the knuckle and fingertips to maximize awareness.
Our high visibility series runs the gamut when it comes to Youngstown’s core technologies. You will that we offer the following types of gloves within our high visibility series; winter waterproof, cut resistant, flame resistant and even impact resistant.
