LUNENBURG, Mass., Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Viz Reflectives North America is excited to announce their US product launch of patent-pending workwear. VRNA's Vizlite® Dual Technology incorporates both retro-reflectivity and phosphorescence into seven new garments, including a lightweight birds eye tee shirt, a waterproof and breathable rain jacket and pant set as well as four vests in both ANSI Class 2 and 3. This industry-changing technology has been a proven winner in Europe and is now ready for its stateside introduction.
Justin Krook, Principal of VRNA describes the experience that led him into a partnership with Europe's Viz Reflectives. "I was working for my father's contracting company, where engineers searched for a "green" solution using a "glow" product when light sources were low or non-existent. After realizing there wasn't a phosphorescent technology bright enough to be seen outdoors and would disappear when exposed to light, I started doing rudimentary R&D in my garage which has turned into the technology that is now known as Vizlite® Dual Technology." Justin's background and passion for chemistry, business and invention led him to a "glow" product...further developed with the help of VRUK was a winning formula!
Vizlite® Dual Technology is an ANSI approved combination that was developed to offer innovation into the PPE market and was created to save lives in low to no light source situations. VRNA's technology features phosphorescent materials that emit light in dark and dimly lit areas improving personal safety. The first of it's kind – recharges with most types of light, including sunlight, floodlights and ordinary office light fixtures and requires no battery operation or plugs. Typical industries that could benefit include DOT, construction, mining, shipping and distribution, oil and gas, utilities are among the few...truly a "game changer"!
