Scout's safety kit.

 

German Safety Standard DIN 58124 - playing it safe.

The " Germand Safety Standard for schoolbags" DIN 58124 says:
schoolbags have to be equipped with fluorescent areas as well as
retroreflective ones. The amount is stipulated: 10 % of the visible areas of
the schoolbag have to be retroreflective, 20 % fluorescent.

The Scout waring colours.

Schoolbags which are provided with warning colours in orange-red
or yellow meet the requirements of the German Safety Standard DIN 58124.
So all Scout schoolbags with fluorescent areas in these colours have the DIN-logo.
Scout schoolbags with fluorescent areas in other colours (e.g. pink or green)
also optimise the visibility of children in traffic but in another intensity.
Find here an overview of all current Scout fluorescent colours. 

All Scout fluorescent colours at a glance.

 

What you cannot ignore.

Warning colours with neon-effect! Fluorescent areas improve
visibility during the day and in low-light conditions.
In the current Scout collection there are six different warning
colours
– all match the designs of the schoolbag.

Shining examples.

Glow effect in the dark – from the leading supplier ORAFOL.
The retro-reflective material reflects incident light (e.g. headlights) and
thus products a striking flash effect. During the day these
areas shine pearl-silver.

High visibility.

For pupils who walk to school or go by bike we recommend a Scout
with retroreflective and fluorescent areas.


In the current collection, we offer six different fluorescent colours.
Schoolbags which are provided with warning colours in orange-red
or yellow meet the requirements of the German Safety Standard DIN 58124.
There is a selection of four more warning colours which have
not been defined in the current „schoolbag standard“: green, pink, fuchsia and coral.


If the schoolbag should not be equipped with warning colours you
can also choose one of the new "Non-DIN-models". These are
equipped with retroreflective areas from the leading supplier
ORAFOL which improve visibility by providing a flash effect in the dark.

Fluorescent and retroreflective - what helps when?

Scout schoolbags are equipped with two different safety features:

Warning colours with neon-effect.

90 % of the ways to and from school are covered during the day or at dawn. This is the perfect time for fluorescent areas; they make sure that the children are seen well in traffic.

Retroreflektive areas for the flash-effect in the dark.

Incoming light (e. g. by the headlight of a car) are reflected by these areas and thus creates a striking glow effect in the dark.

Quality.

Scout doesn't compromise – neither when it comes to material, nor to workmanship.
