What is School Bus Reflective Prismatic tape?

Prismatic reflective tape was invented by Reflexite 30 years ago. School Bus tape, SOLAS reflective tape along with DOT conspicuity tapes are three results of this invention. The School Bus and DOT Conspicuity tapes are about 5-6 times brighter than standard reflective tapes. Prismatic School Bus tape is not only brighter but is also visible at much greater angles than standard reflective tapes. Standard engineer grade reflective tape needs to be either in front of your headlights or about 20 degrees to either side for you to see it. Prismatic school bus tape on the other hand can be 45 degrees to either side and still light up. This feature as well as the increased brightness is especially important in school bus marking applications. Most states have requirements or recomendations regarding the marking of school buses. You should contact your local DOT office to obtain the exact requirements for your state.
