Get expert advice and make sure your safety garments are up to the standards needed for the job. In most cases you will need your workwear to be more than reflective: whether it’s rain gear, winter protection or any other kind of PPE, hi vis garments need to be assessed according to comfort, durability and adequateness for the job.

PPE is a hi vis workwear retailer in Scotland offering a great selection from a wide range of brands. Snickers, Mascot and Dickies hi vis workwear are some popular choices. We can customise your high visibility apparel with your corporate logo.
Scotland has lower temperatures than the rest of the UK. Thermal insulation needs for hi vis workwear vary between the North Sea and the Atlantic coasts, given western Scotland’s milder climate. The Highlands have heavier rainfalls and snowfalls, which call for higher levels of weather resistance in hi vis workwear. Each Scottish economic sector also has specific requirements; technology firms in Edinburgh or Glasgow, the oil and gas industries of Aberdeen or agriculture and brewing across Scotland demand different hi vis workwear. At PPE, we provide a wide range of hi vis workwear to accommodate the needs of different activities and weather conditions.
The international standard for high visibility clothing, EN ISO 20471, defines 3 classes of conspicuousness, with Class 3 being the highest level of visibility.
Vests often meet class 2 standards and are worn by staff working near roads. Hi vis vests range from lightweight visibility garments to executive bodywarmers featuring reversible design, practical pockets and 2-tone fabric.
When choosing a high visibility jacket or coat, it is important to check that it matches all needed standards. While hi vis fleece garments may be warm and comfortable in mild weather, more isolating workwear clothing is needed for outdoor environments in the winter. Our shop offers a wide range of breathable hi vis jackets with varying degrees of water and wind resistance available in Scotland. We can advise you on the best high visibility rain gear for you or your team.
High visibility trousers are most often requested in yellow or orange, although there are more sophisticated designs available featuring two tones or other accepted hi vis colours. If you are not sure which colour is best for your needs, ask your workwear provider.
