Technology

 

Retro reflection literally means reflecting back the light to the light source.

Glass bead technology developed by world leading manufacturer 3M allows a scarf for instance, to reflect light from the scarf wearer back to the vehicle driver whilst several hundred meters away - obviously a must for children, or indeed any pedestrian on a dark night. More technical information on 3M's Scotchlite reflective material can be found on their website.

Origins

The author was once tripped up by a canal mooring rope as he couldn't see it in the dark hence the development of hi-vizz safety ropes. Introducing retro reflective yarn into the rope seemed a natural progression to make the rope visible at night. As the company Genesis is also a weaver of broad loom fabric for the equine and soft furnishing industry a retro woven for fabric was developed for use in the apparel industry. Fabulous scarves, accessories, and fashion coats for children made from cashmere through to acrylic are now available.

“It’s really safe because when cars are coming they can see you when it lights up.”

Emily, age 9

  

“I think they’re really comfortable, and they light up so the cars will be able to see you if you go across the road.”

Jonathan, age 9

 

"These innovative scarves add extra visibility to students in the dark"

Lyn Rowe, Road Safety Officer, Leicester City Council
   

"It looks like regular cloth, it feels like regular cloth, and it glows…well, not like regular cloth. If you shine a torch on it, it’s exactly like a hi-vis vest and it’s very, very bright."

Tom Darby, BBC Radio Leicester

 

"This is more than just the latest fashion accessory, when the children leave the school and it’s dark outside, this scarf reflects in the headlights."

Tom Brown, BBC East Midlands Today
