A chevron is a design where alternating colored stripes go out and down both directions at a 45 degree angle. Both the alternating colors and the slant are designed to make the panel conspicuous. On our main site we offer a large variety of chevron panels. They are available in different color combinations and in different sizes. We also offer panels where the stripes alternate colors but do not slant. (see image below)
Studies have shown that the use of high visibility reflective markings on a vehicle can reduce rear end collisions from 15% to 41%. The percentage increases as the visibility increases. Selecting the right intensity and color for the panels is an important factor in how effective they will be. Fluorescent Lime Yellow and Red or Fluorescent Lime Yellow and Orange are consistently ranked the highest for visibility.
The Battenburg Pattern (see below) is very popular and effective in Europe. It is made with various colors and is used on non Fire (NFPA) vehicles.
Our two piece (left and right slant sections) chevron panel kits are more affordable and easier to apply. Simple apply the left and right slant panels to create the design. Clear seam tape is provided to protect the middle seam.
