Welcome to Safety Effects!

Safety Effects is proud to be an authorized distributor for 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material, recognized as the leading high performance retro-reflective material for enhancing visibility. High visibility is achieved through a technology known as retro-reflection, which helps the eye perceive light in low-light conditions. By returning light rays in the direction from which they came, very little light is scattered, making this reflective material highly effective.


The 3M Company is a trusted name for quality and innovation. The 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material brand offers numerous benefits:

     • Increased peace-of-mind to people who
       wear safety garments

     • Enhanced visibility in low-light and nighttime

     • Durability and effectiveness; wearing
       after wearing, washing after washing

     • A wide range of products to meet high-visibility
       performance standards and satisfy your
       specifications for durability, comfort, style
       and image

Our color spectrum includes silver, white, and fluorescent colors. Some 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material products are designed to meet stringent wash and wear requirements that are necessary to industrially launder. Many 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material products also meet the ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 standard for retro-reflective material specifications providing guidelines for design, performance of materials and use of high visibility apparel. In addition, some reflective materials are flame resistant and meet NFPA Standards.

Safety Effects, in cooperation with the 3M Occupational Health And Environmental Safety Division, has dedicated customer service, technical service, and sales resources with knowledge about personal protective and safety clothing as it relates to enhanced visibility.
