with dark nights and foggy conditions taking hold, leading multi-channel
supplier, Screwfix, has extended its range of high visibility clothing to

With 50mm reflective tape on the body and shoulders and an effective
Velcro fastening, the waistcoats are ideal for staying safe and seen whether
working on-site, doing handy work at home or walking and riding in the dark.
