As of January 1, 2009 the NFPA 1901 document requires all new fire apparatus to have at least 50% of the rear of the truck covered with 6” red/yellow alternating stripes in a chevron (inverted V) pattern. This initiative is to increase visibility, providing additional on-scene safety.
SVI Graphics is here to help! Our innovative 3M Diamond Grade Chevron Panels exceed the NFPA 1901 requirements as well as the ASTM D 4956-04 Type IX specifications. But the real advantage is that they're extremely easy to install so you can do it yourself. No need to take your truck(s) out of service for an undetermined amount of time while paying the expensive labor charges to have someone else do it for you.
