Q: Is safeNbrite really the world's first pedestrian reflector? A: Yes! According to the story, it was a dark and rainy night and a Finnish man named Arvi Lehti was rushing home for dinner with his horse and carriage. A car approached him, and the driver couldn't see the carriage early enough. Although Lehti lived, his horse was injured badly. Distressed by the possibility of this happening again, he got to work, and soon became the inventor of the first pedestrian safety reflector.
Q: How does a safeNbrite work? A: safeNbrite is a pedestrian reflector that reflects light at a high level of brightness because of its unique prism structure. When a car's headlights spot it, safeNbrite makes you shine. This way, the driver can see you much better and earlier - from a distance 3x further than without a reflector. When you let your safeNbrite hang freely, the swinging motion makes it even more visible. safeNbrite is lightweight, so you don't have to worry about removing it during daytime.
Q: When do I need safeNbrite? A: You need safeNbrite in practically all situations involving sharing roads big & small with vehicles; when walking, jogging, biking, crossing streets and parking lots, and playing outside. Wearing safeNbrite reflectors outside at all times will keep you prepared for low-visibility conditions.
Q: What is C.I.L., and what does a CE certification for a safeNbrite mean? A: C.I.L. means Coefficient of Luminous Intensity. It is the reflective value that tells you how brightly a reflector reflects back light. The bigger the C.I.L number is, the brighter and safer is the reflector. In accordance with the CE standard EN13356, the minimum reflective value of a reflector needs to reach 400 C.I.L., which is exceeded by all safeNbrites: the minimum requirement for safeNbrite is 800 C.I.L. safeNbrite is the brightest pedestrian reflector on the market.
Q: How does color effect the reflecting power? A: SafeNbrite is tested color by color. A clear color safeNbrite reflection can be over 3000 C.I.L., while colorful safeNbrite reflect at 800-3000 C.I.L. (Certification minimum in Europe for pedestrian reflectors is 400 C.I.L.).
Q: How do prints and stickers effect power? A: safeNbrite can be covered as long as the coverage is at most 1/3 of the surface area. Please contact us to customize your safeNbrite reflector with a print/logo.
Q: There is a sidewalk on only one side of my street. Does this mean I should wear a safeNbrite on both of my sides? A: Yes, this is strongly advisable. Another good option would be having a second safeNbrite on your backpack or on a bag. Remember - when there is no sidewalk, always try to stay as far as possible from the vehicles and walk towards upcoming traffic. And always remember to follow regular road safety habits.
