Safety Flag Company Of America Offers Durable, Weather-Tested Fluorescent Mesh Flags

PAWTUCKET, RI, March 2005 < The Safety Flag Company of America is offering an unusually durable knit mesh flag, designed primarily for fast-moving vehicles and situations where winds may be high.

The Safety Flag fluorescent orange mesh flag, the SFKV18, is made of a 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 together, its tensile strength and tear-resistance are superior. The flag is completely bound around its edges and is hemmed. The fluorescent dye is integral to the fabric and is not applied superficially. All dowels are a full 7/8" in diameter.

The SFKV18 is 18" square. It has three grommets and an 18" dowel bound along the top.

It can be used alone on trucks, tractors and vans, or can be used in conjunction with Safety Flag "WIDE LOAD" and "OVERSIZE LOAD" banners. Its three grommets allow it to be used in many situations < for loads covered with tarps, for identifying unusual and hazardous shapes, with highway rollup signs, or for roadside protrusions.

The SFKV18 is available in custom constructions, in different sizes and weights, with different placement of grommets, and with additional grommets and dowels. It is one of several Safety Flag SFKV flag styles, and is also available in solid fabric. The SFKV18 is discounted on orders of 24 or more.

"These extremely durable, highly visible flags deliver what we have represented for 50 years; they 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 the knit vinyl mesh SFKV18, Safety Flag Company manufactures a standard vinyl-coated nylon mesh flag with the same design for customers with restricted budgets. All materials are available as roll goods or 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, Other Safety Flag products, like hardhats, vests, traffic cones and armbands, are also available directly or from the site.
