Reflective Apparel unveils RAflect50, high visibility garments designed to withstand the rigors of industrial laundries


RAflect50 high visibility garments are designed for safety and are designed to be durable enough to withstand at least 50 industrial wash cycles.

MARIETTA, GA – Reflective Apparel, a manufacturer of a full line of high-visibility apparel, introduces RAflect50, high-visibility (hi-vis) apparel designed to withstand the high temperatures and harsh chemicals of industrial laundries.

After 25 washes, traditional hi-vis garments may begin to lose their color fastness and reflective properties. In fact, some of these safety properties may start to fade after just five washes. This means that traditional 25-wash high-visibility garments, washed twice a week, can no longer meet ANSI/ISEA 107-2020 standards in just 12 weeks. When it comes to the industrial laundry rental segment, garments must withstand at least 50 heavy wash and dry cycles. RAflect50 hi-vis garments have been independently tested to withstand at least 50 washes in this industrial laundry environment. Ensure that the quality and integrity of the entire garment remains intact throughout the life of the rented garment.

“We set out to design durable workwear that offered the same comfort, visibility and quality as our premium reflective garments, but designed to be tough enough to withstand uniform rental and industrial laundry environments. “, said Scott A. Corrao, president of Reflective. Clothes. “This saves companies time and money when they don’t have to replace high-visibility uniforms as frequently, while maintaining the highest safety standards.”

RAflect50 products are available in several styles, including t-shirts, woven work shirts and easy-to-hire polo shirts. All RAflect50 products feature segmented reflective tape for high visibility, comfort, longevity and durability and meet ANSI Class II high visibility standards.

The micro piqué fabric used in RAflect50 hi-vis garments has received third-party certification for ANSI/ISEA 107-2020 high-visibility compliance. RAflect50 products feature 3M™ Scotchgard™ dirt-repellent technology for easy care and a 3M™ moisture-wicking finish. Performance fabric wicks away moisture three times faster than cotton. Comfort and cooling features also include ventilated underarms and back yoke and Silverplus® technology to minimize odor. AATCC test results confirm excellent physical properties of the fabric, including:

  • 4.9 out of 5 for snag resistance
  • 5 out of 5 for pilling resistance
  • 5 out of 5 for color fastness

“RAflect50 is a game changer for the uniform rental industry,” said Becky Keith, vice president of sales for Reflective Apparel. “There are stringent service requirements for garments that go through a rental laundry process. Garments are treated at high temperatures with harsh chemicals. RAflect50 is designed to withstand a two-year life cycle under these conditions.
