Alpha Workwear Triple Protection Safety GarmentsAlpha Workwear - Technical Information for Triple Protection Safety Garments

Vizlite DT is a dual technology tape developed by Viz Reflectives for Alpha Workwear safety clothing products. The safety tape provides retro-reflectivity and illumination and is applied to safety clothing that already has fluorescent color fabric, giving the garment a third level of protection. Retro-reflectivity gives visibility when direct light (headlights) shine on the user wearing the garment. Alpha Workwear's illumination gives the users a way to glow in the dark and be seen in low or no light situations. Glowing safety vests, glow in the dark T-Shirts, illuminating rain jackets and glow in the dark pants and several other products make Alpha Workwear stand out from the rest for safety and design. These garments do not need batteries to glow. The glowing safety clothing is charged by sunlight or artificial light in minutes and the charge last for hours.

Why Wear Alpha Workwear Safety Clothing?

Why Wear Alpha WorkwearWhy do workers need a third level of protection? Struck by-equipment accidents (including vehicles and other objects) are the top cause of injury and second cause of death for construction workers.

The US Department of Labor claims that every year there are nearly 600 workplace deaths and almost 300,000 serious injuries associated with workers being hit by equipment or objects. OSHA reports that one in four struck-by-vehicle deaths involve construction workers, higher than in any other industry.

Bureau of Labor Statistics also show “Struck By Fatalities” are high in Construction and in the industries of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing, Mining, Transportation, Energy, Public Utilities and Manufacturing

As soon as a wearer of a high visibility garment steps into the shadows, under a structure, into a tunnel or in a low light/zero light environment, they have “zero” protection by the garment. They are as vulnerable as being “shirtless” as standard Hi Viz only protects in these environments when a light source (such as headlights) is present.

Our technology solves this problem…it may only be for a split second when you need to be seen but wouldn’t you want protection in all environments?

Alpha Workwear by Viz Reflectives N.A. has been committed to protecting workers by providing the most technically advanced, next-generation high visibility garments which far exceeds ANSI’s minimum requirements.

Alpha Garments - 3 Levels of Safety ProtectionAlpha garments feature our patented VizLite DT which offers 3 levels of protection:

1.Fluorescence
2.Retro-reflectivity
3.Phosphorescence.

A typical high visibility garment offers daytime and nighttime visibility - with one flaw. In the day - the bright colored fluorescent fabric keeps users conspicuous. In the night, silver retro-reflective tape kicks in by reflecting light back to its source (car headlights for example). When no light source is available, both the silver reflective and the fluorescent fabric are invisible.

Here's where Alpha WorkWear offers a solution!
Imagine a garment that provides visible confidence to the wearer in all types of light situations. Alpha's patented VizLite DT tape utilizes innovative phosphorescence technology to solve this low-light problem. As the wearer’s environment becomes “dim” our phosphorescent technology begins to slowly release stored energy that the human eyes sees as a “glow” offering the wearer a new type of visibility. Our patented formula exceeds ANSI standards for visibility and durability. We achieve up to 10 times the required wash/wear life of typical high visibility garments.

Alpha's garments offer a level of protection not yet seen in the industrial market. We've worked extensively to develop our patented DT tape and technical fabrics to provide the optimum mix of protection, durability and comfort to deliver best in industry garment performance.
