The additional reflective strip on the forearm of lightweight cotton shirts is a feature of MAXCOOL Workwear’s proactive design
MAXCOOL’s workwear range offers differing safety features, where relevant, such as:
Biomotion taping – makes workers more visible, therefore safe
The additional reflective strip added to the forearm (Biomotion taping) is industry best practice and is a recommendation in Australian Standard 4602.1.2011 to significantly enhance the long distance recognition of the wearer as a human figure when viewed by reflective light.

In Australia we work approximately 230 days per year * therefore we need a shirt with enhanced longevity. (* 48 working weeks, less 96 days for weekends, less 10 days public holidays = 230 working days/year)
MAXCOOL’s perforated tape allows air flow and reduces hot spots caused by regular tapes which bake in the sun.
As close to 20 % of a shirt is covered by reflective tape – this causes heat to build up along the lines of the tape when the wearer is in the sun, causing heat-stress and fatigue. MAXCOOL’S perforated tape alleviates heat buildup by allowing air to flow through the tape, keeping you cooler, without sacrificing the safety of high-visibility reflective tape.
And best of all, MAXCOOL's perforated tape is just as hard wearing as their non-perforated 100-wash tape!
