VestLED Flashing Safety Vest

Torrance, CA — April 16, 1999 — LEDtronics®, Inc., introduces the VestLED Flashing Safety Vest, the latest advancement in wearable safety equipment. VestLED provides the professional and recreationist alike with high-visibility in hazardous nighttime, daylight and indoor environments. VestLED emits a flashing light that can be seen up to a half mile, depending on weather conditions and line-of-sight. VestLED flashes 90 – 100 times per minute for 240 continuous hours on two fully-charged AA alkaline batteries.

VestLED comes equipped with 16 high-intensity, low-profile Surface Mount Technology (SMT) red (660nm) LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) ¾ three times more LEDs then any comparable LED vest! Ten LEDs are mounted on the front (five to a side), and six LEDs are position strategically across the back. As an additional safety measure, two bright reflective 3Mâ yellow stripes run from front to back on the vest, making VestLED ideal for daylight and indoor locations as well as nighttime environments. VestLED is available in a solid vinyl (neon-orange) and in vinyl mesh (neon orange and neon green). The one-size-fits-all VestLED features nylon straps on each side to provide a snug, comfortable fit. Side-release buckles allow single-handed adjustments and easy on and off.

VestLED is designed specifically to provide a highly visible, continuous strobe warning light source for personnel such as road crews, crowd-control/traffic-control personnel, emergency teams and sportsmen operating in hazardous industrial or recreational environments. VestLED’s pliable materials enable it to be folded for easy storage in car trunks, backpacks, or road emergency kits. If you travel on or off the beaten path, work in poorly lit hazardous environments, or participate in activities where your safety relies on visibility, the VestLED Flashing Safety Vest is one garment you should never leave home without.

VestLED’s solid-state LEDs operate for more than 100,000 hours (10 years) before requiring replacement. VestLED operates on two AA alkaline batteries. VestLED with power pack and batteries weighs 12.2 ounces (346g). VestLED can be custom order with specific color SMT LEDs with factory-approval. Pricing is $64.95. Volume discounts are available. Production lead time is four to eight weeks.
