DOT Reflective conspicuity tape is mandated by law. (CCMTA & FHWA)
All vehicles over 10 000 lb. or 80" wide require DOT approved conspicuity tape. This is the most powerful reflective product available.
Conspicuity tape is retro-reflective, using micro prisms to redirect light directly back to the source. An oncoming motorist will thus see the full power of the reflection when the light from his headlights is reflected back to his eyes (assuming of course he has his headlights on!) There are 3 North American manufacturers of conspicuity grade tapes (3M, Reflexite and Avery). Some products have slightly higher reflectivity, some are warranted for longer periods (5 year, 7 year and 10 years) and all have different levels of angular reflection.
Important note to straight body truck and “smaller” trailer OEMs & their distributors:
