Signal Active Illumination

An innovative solution for active illumination of garments and accessories improving visibility and safety

Coats is partnering with lighting specialist Osram to introduce an innovative solution for active illumination of garments and accessories which helps to improve visibility and safety of people.

This brand-new Coats Signal Active Illumination range consists of a light system, a power bank and pipings for integration into garments and accessories.

Coats Signal Active Illumination light system is made by OSRAM. The product has been designed for application in garments and accessories. It offers enhanced safety for people during night or low light conditions. Visibility range is approximately 500m which is 3 times more than what retroreflective products are able to achieve.

Coats Signal Active Illumination light systems are made of flexible light guides which are powered by a power bank and which illuminate homogeneous light through the complete light guide. The product can withstand washing and drying processes in garments.

Coats Signal Active Illumination light system is a low voltage device (5V) and complies with the requirements of all relevant standards such as CE, RoHS, REACH, etc. Coats Signal Active Illumination light system can be customised on request and modified according to specific requirements, e.g. number of light guides, LED colours, cable lengths, function of the switch.

Piping Systems

Coats Signal™ Active Illumination piping solutions has been designed for easy integration into garments or accessories. The range consists of retro-reflective perforated piping, mesh pipings or pipings integrated into retro-reflective tapes. Retro-reflective pipings with incorporated high density perforation (1.2mm or 3mm holes) offers two levels of protection; passive illumination based on retro-reflection as well as active illumination in combination with light systems. Therefore it offers enhanced safety for people during night or low light conditions. The mesh piping is a very light and design neutral solution, therefore suitable for a broad range of applications. Retro-reflective tapes with integrated piping have also been designed for easy integration of Coats Signal Active Illumination light systems and reflective tapes in garments. In addition, the position of reflective tapes in high vilibility garments is ideal for active illumination and therefore retro-reflective tapes with integrated piping ensures optimum positioning of light systems. Furthermore, the cost effective manufacturing of high visibility clothing ensures no need to sew in a separate piping for light systems.
