GlowSpot® is a revolutionary new retro-reflective technology that enhances the visibility of technical textiles used for survival equipment, which increases the chance of locating and rescuing survivors at sea. Retains reflective properties over time, and resistant to harsh weathering, GlowSpot® can be tailored to any application intended for dimly-lit environments, for daytime or night-time use. GlowSpot® preserves the original textile color, thereby complying with international standards for reflective rescue colors. GlowSpot® is a patented technology of Erez Technical Textiles, and ISO 12402-7 and UL 1191 certified.
GlowSpot® technology comprises a retro-reflecting, multi-layered technical textile with increased light-reflectance. The outermost layer contains a mixture of highly-reflective particles embedded in a polymeric material, distributed over a large surface area, causing light to reflect back to its source with minimal scattering and absorbance. The inner functional layers, embedded with thermoplastic polymers, undergo heat treatment for reinforced adherence.
How it Works
When GlowSpot® is applied to a life jacket or life raft, and illuminated by a light source, the light’s reflection is intensified, increasing the chance of detection and rescue of survivors lost at sea. To enhance reflectivity even further, reflective letters can be added to convey a message requesting rescue, visible from great distances from a marine vessel or an aircraft. Complying with rigorous international regulations and standards, GlowSpot® provides visible light at a range between 1-20 candelas per square meter (cd/m²) – 5 times more reflective than fabrics commonly used in life-jacket bladders.
