Hi Vis Polo and T Shirts
Why Use High Visibility Safety T Shirts and Polo Shirts?
As well as a means to keep you cool, hi vis workwear is very important in the UK, reducing the need for a high visibility jacket so you can be seen and stay safe. Make sure you stay noticed in the dark with our cotton hi vis polo shirts, which sport reflective tape for maximum visibility. In most cases, high-visibility clothing is worn to notify drivers and other vehicle operators of a worker’s presence, particularly in low light and dark conditions.
Head protection can also be worn to enhance the visibility of the wearer in circumstances where part of – or all of – the worker’s body could be hidden by leaves/trees, traffic barriers, construction materials, and so on.

Benefits of High Visibility Polo Shirts
It’s important that staff working in potentially dangerous areas can easily be spotted. However, in warmer weather, nobody wants to wear a bulky Hi Vis jacket. Our range of Hi Vis polos and t shirts keep your staff visible in warmer weather, and are lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Some staff who work in factories and industrial environments might complain about the heat, and this can make them reluctant to put on safety wear such as Hi Vis vests. Our range of hi vis polos and t shirts are made to be as bright and eye-catching, while keeping the wearer cool. We offer both short and long sleeved options, in sizes from S to 5XL, so you can kit out everyone on the team.
Our Safety Polo Shirts Meet Strict Regulations
It’s vital that safety clothing meets strict regulations, and our Hi Vis t shirts and high visibility polos comply with ISO 20471 standards regarding Hi Vis clothing. They are made in vivid colours such as yellow, orange, or red, and feature thick bands of reflective tape around the arms and body.
Who Wears Yellow Safety Polo Shirts?
Our Hi Vis t shirts are particularly popular with those who work outdoors during the warmer months, whether it’s on railways, construction, or other potentially hazardous work sites. We offer shirts with breathable cotton on the inside for comfort, and polyester on the outside for those tough jobs. All our polos and t shirts are easy to wash and designed for repeated wear. We can also supply flame retardant polos if needed.
Types of Breathable Hi Vis Polo Shirts
We stock an array of cotton hi vis polo shirts, including ones featuring long sleeves as well as orange-coloured workwear shirts. While we don’t stock class 3 polo shirts, we do offer a class 3:2 shirt made from polyester, available in Saturn yellow and orange.
How Does High Vis Work?
Made of fluorescent material with added reflective tape, the sun’s ultraviolet rays react with the bright colours to make them look as though they’re glowing, increasing daytime visibility. The effect is more so in poor light conditions, for example in fog or towards sunset.
When night falls, light from things like car headlights bounce off the reflective areas, which makes the tape glow, also enhancing night time visibility. The most important thing to remember is: “Fluorescent for daytime visibility, reflective for night”.
