5. EMERGENCY VEHICLE GRAPHICS

Higher visibility decals & striping harness the full power of prismatic technology to enhance driver safety.


Every semi-trailer is fitted with mandatory red/white (conspicuity….”VERY conspicuous!”) tape. It is “prismatic” and you appreciate its reflective power from thousands of feet at night on trucks, trailers and even school buses. These heavy vehicles STAND OUT! They are more visible! Nothing has more reflective power than this prismatic technology. It is up to 8X brighter over a much longer distance than “standard” reflective tape installed on most emergency vehicles. If this product is “mandated by law” because it makes “non-emergency” vehicles safer, should you settle for any less protection on your “emergency vehicles”?


Advanced driver warning gives enhanced protection, not just for drivers but also for your responders.


No fire apparatus OEM or fire department that prides itself in being “safety conscious” uses the old technology “glass bead” sheeting for rear chevrons.


Do the sides of your vehicle require less protection?


HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE ADVANTAGES OF PRISMATIC OVER “STANDARD” GLASS BEAD SHEETING?

Why not take advantage of the new generation technology for your lateral striping, unit numbers, department or city identification, logos and crests, reflectors/chevrons INSIDE doors, or the sides of all roll-out trays? Using prismatic sheeting costs pennies more than glass bead products but enhances safety on ALL sides of your apparatus, not just the rear chevrons.

WHEN IS INCREASED VISIBILITY MOST CRITICAL?

  • In case of accident intervention, when visibility is reduced because of inclement weather, when every meter of distance between you and an oncoming driver yields high dividends if an accident is avoided. Put every chance on your side to grab the oncoming drivers’ attention!

Add lower lateral chevrons or a solid stripe of conspicuity tape!

BATTENBURG PATTERNS

HOW TO INCORPORATE “BATTENBURG” PATTERNS

One proof of many municipalities’ attitude change is their introduction of the BATTENBURG PATTERN, a European design that captures oncoming motorist’s attention!
