It meets world specifications of enclosed glass bead type sheeting with 7-year durability.

What is wide angle reflectivity?

Wide angle glass bead retro-reflective technology allows light to reflect from a much wider angle than standard glass bead retro-reflective products, such as an approach of 70°. This means that objects off to the side are more easily visible, offering increased awareness and safety.

Standard glass bead products are designed to only reflect light directly back to the source, such as on a stop sign where the driver is approaching the sign directly or only slightly off to the side.

With wide angle glass bead technology, objects farther off to the side, such as parked road construction equipment or a dumpster in a dark alley, are difficult to miss.
