Safety Flag Company of America Offers Heavy-Duty, Weather-Tested Fluorescent Mesh Flags on Dowels
PAWTUCKET, RI, July 2005 < The Safety Flag Company of America is offering unusually durable knit mesh flags on dowels, designed primarily for fast-moving vehicles, oversized loads and high wind situations.
Safety Flag fluorescent orange mesh flags on 27-inch dowels are made of weather-tested vinyl-coated nylon. The fabric is 20% heavier than the vinyl usually used in mesh flags. Because it is knit, not simply laminated, its tensile strength and tear-resistance are superior. The flags are completely hemmed around the edges. The fluorescent dye is integral to the fabric and is not applied superficially. All dowels are a full 7/8" in diameter.
The Safety Flag SFKV18+27 is 18" square. The dowel protrudes nine inches. The flag is often used above Safety Flag roll-up highway signs and on trucks, tractors and vans. It is frequently seen in conjunction with Safety Flag "WIDE LOAD" and "OVERSIZE LOAD" banners on tractor-trailers and pickup trucks.
The SFKV18+27 can highlight loads covered with tarps and tonneaus and is sometimes used to identify unusual and hazardous shapes.
The SFKV18+27 is also available in solid fabric. It is discounted on orders of 24 or more.
"These extremely durable, highly visible flags are truly Safety Flags, designed with long-lasting safety in mind," said Norman Bernson, president of Safety Flag Company. "They persistently resist cracking, peeling and fraying."
Safety Flag mesh flags meet or exceed all applicable Federal Highway Administration specifications listed in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUCTD).
Besides knit vinyl mesh flags, Safety Flag Company manufactures standard vinyl-coated nylon mesh flags, NM Naslon Mesh, and "99" mesh flags for customers with restricted budgets. All materials are available as roll goods and in custom constructions for special applications.
Safety Flag, an established, 50-year-old Rhode Island firm with offices in Rhode Island, Indiana and California, sells the flags through an extensive group of distributors around the world. Where distributors are not available, customers can order directly from the Safety Flag website, www.safetyflag.com. Other Safety Flag products, like hardhats, vests, traffic cones and armbands, are also available directly or from the site.
