be seen, stay safe

There’s more to selecting high visibility clothing than meets the eye

When it comes to clothing that can reduce injuries and fatalities, it should be no surprise that the choice of colour and the degree of reflectiveness is not arbitrary. There’s science behind the certified colours (yellow, orange, and red) and classifications denoting the level of protection (low, intermediate and high) for particular hazards.

We’re here to guide clients through the most common challenges, making the complex simple.



With so much high-visibility clothing available, understanding the differences between certified Class 1, 2 and 3 requirements and choosing the right option for the right situation can seem confusing.


Value for money is important, in balance with suitability, durability, stock availability and sustainability


Clients need to have confidence that their garments have passed the right conformity tests to ensure adequate protection.


Certain colours will create better visibility in particular environments. Outdoor hi-vis should be orange and in areas with low-level lighting and for night-time visibility yellow should be worn.


Maintaining sufficient stock levels and fast replenishment will ensure safety is never compromised, and colleagues are equipped correctly and ready for whenever the job needs to be done.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

Commercial addressed a space problem for a leading High Street retailer by taking on the responsibility of stocking and supplying retail PPE and high visibility products. The retailer faced space constraints at their Main UK Distribution Centre due to the expansion of their online delivery platforms. Commercial stocked all product lines for stores to order alongside their essential supplies, providing MI reports showcasing how consolidated deliveries reduced costs and carbon emissions.


Advances in high visibility clothing are protecting people and the planet

Textile innovations which combine comfort with more sustainable fabrics and wearable technology are increasingly available for safety wear and construction clothing.


Lighting the way

LED technology is being incorporated into clothing to enhance reflective tapes and lights for added night-time visibility.

Breathable heat protection

We partner with innovators like ARC Flash who are making garments more breathable for the wearer whilst providing the maximum protection in high temperature environments.

Re-using plastic

With sustainability always at the forefront of our minds, we partner with manufacturers such as Portwest who make use of recycled plastics in their high visibility garments.

Recyclable clothing

Closing the loop, manufacturers such as Beeswift are making garments 100% recyclable at the end of life. Fabric is re- processed and incorporated into new garments.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
