5. Emergency vehicule graphics

APP#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?

 

Compare the visibility of “old” glass bead technology with prismatic technology

401 is glass bead

Lateral stripe is glass bead

Note: 3M DIAMOND GRADE 3900 and 4000 series are not recommended for vehicle graphics.

 

Many ambulance OEM’s and EMS services are implementing prismatic technology like Reflexite V-98 to increase motorist safety.

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

“Battenburg” Reflexite

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!

HOW TO DETERMINE IF 3M 983 OR REFLEXITE EMS IS BEST FOR MY APPLICATION?

 

SUGGESTION:

For increased lateral safety WITHOUT CHANGING your entire graphic package, simply add a 1” or 2” wide stripe of conspicuity grade “all white, all red, all yellow or all blue” tape above or below your present striping: INCREASE your lateral visibility up to 6x over what you have now.

 

3M 983 and Reflexite available in 7/8”, 1 inch and other widths.

 

ONE INCH OF REFLEXITE ADDED ON PERIMETER

 

 

 

 

Bring your graphics/lettering contractors “up to date” on the latest prismatic technology! Don’t let them insist on installing the old “glass-bead” sheeting! The new products are plotter “cuttable”, easy to apply, but much brighter.

Price increase is negligible.
