Online PR News – 16-March-2010 – – MUSKEGON, MI – Reid Supply Company, a leading distributor of top industrial products, expands its dedication to improving road traffic safety conditions with its extensive line of high visibility clothing and road signs.
Customers can find diamond grade roll-up signs that will provide high visibility under both night and day driving conditions, including low visibility periods such as dawn, dusk and overcast weather conditions. The road signs use some of the most common safety wording, such as 'road closed,' 'reduce speed' and 'road work ahead' and are sold as a single sign or as a kit that includes the sign, rib and stand.
In addition to roadside safety signs, Reid Supply sells a variety of high visibility clothing. Items include waterproof jackets, mesh jackets, coveralls, bib overalls, t-shirts and short sleeve and sleeveless vests. Each item is specially designed to increase roadside worker visibility in both low light and bright conditions.
"If you're a part of a road crew, there's nothing more important than making sure you're visible to motorists. Items like fluorescent road signs and Dickies personal protective clothing can mean the difference between safe and potentially life threatening roadside working conditions. Motorists won't know to slow down if they can't see roadside workers and our entire line of road traffic safety solutions will help make that happen," said John Carrier, President of Reid Supply Company.
