What is a High Visibility Fabric?

A high visibility material is defined as one that: Generates its own light to a level of brightness which allows it to be seen easily, ie it is self-luminous; or reflects light.

The primary purpose of high visibility material is to protect people in poor visibility environments.

In virtually all its applications, brightly-coloured, neon (fluorescent) and reflective clothing has one purpose to offer wearer a greater opportunity to be seen. An object becomes visible to an observer through its reflection of light and its colour, and the observer's interpretation of these.

In the context of high visibility apparel, conspicuity is more important than visibility. Conspicuity is defined as "the characteristics of an object, and the mental state of the observer which together determine the likelihood that the object is in view come to the attention of the observer". For an object to be conspicuous rather than just visible it must contrast sharply with its environment, even when this environment is changing. For example, the object may need to be highly visible regardless of the weather, which may be sunny or overcast, or the time of the day or night.

Colour plays an important role in creating high visibility. Orange lime, yellow and red are the safest colours to incorporate in high visibility clothing because human brain reacts faster to them. Colours such as green and yellow are increasingly being used to make workers stand out from objects such as traffic cones, which are typically coloured in orange. However, green and yellow may not be appropriate in heavily wooded areas. Similarly, red and orange may not provide sufficient contrast in an area, which there are red clays or sands.
