High visibility Warning Clothes

IS Standard : IS 15809 : 2017

High visibility warning clothing is made with specific materials with safety as the main priority. These garments are usually adorned with reflective strips or patches and are composed of vividly colored fabrics, frequently in fluorescent hues like neon orange, yellow, or green. The goal of the reflecting features and vibrant colors is to make people very visible, especially in low-light or low-visibility environments. Workers in high-risk settings, such construction sites, roadwork zones, and warehouses, where it's necessary to draw attention to themselves, frequently wear these warning garments. Improved visibility makes it simpler for drivers, equipment operators, and coworkers to identify people from a distance, which lowers the chance of accidents.

The Indian Standard IS 15809:2017 lays forth the specifications for high-visibility warning apparel. Adherence to IS 15809:2017 facilitates the production of high-visibility apparel that satisfies certain safety and quality standards by manufacturers, hence mitigating the likelihood of worker accidents and injuries. Producers that follow these guidelines make sure their goods meet legal requirements, which lowers the possibility of legal problems and liabilities. The standard lays forth a number of technical specifications for the composition, manufacture, and functionality of high-visibility apparel.

Note: It is mandatory for producers of high-visibility warning apparel to get the ISI Mark Certification before to introducing their products into the Indian market.

For instances where visibility is critical, ISI certification is an essential quality assurance method that guarantees the efficacy and dependability of these clothes. It means that these clothes have been put through a thorough testing process and meet the strict standards established by the BIS, which are designed to assess the clothing's visibility, durability, and overall performance. These warning clothing are particularly useful in lowering the risk of accidents and guaranteeing the safety of workers and individuals since this certification guarantees that they are designed and produced to provide greater visibility, even in low light or severe weather circumstances.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
