  • Black tetrahedrons

    Does anybody have a picture of a black traditional helmet with these black tetrahedrons on them.

    If so how well do they work and do they really reflect silver?

    Yes, they do work and and reflect silver when light is refelected off them.

      Sounds great. I am trying to figure out what all I want to put on my new black N6A when I order it soon.

            Are we required to have tets on the helmet? If so I don't see why we need them. Like we don't have enough reflectors on us already.

            If we are required to have tets are these black ones NFPA compliant?

              I asked my Capt if I could put them on my lid. He told me as long as they reflected in the light at night I could. I'm not sure if they are NFPA or not. But like you said, we have plenty of other stuff on us that reflects and these tet's do reflect.

                NFPA colors are lime yellow, and orange..anything else isn't. But both of my lids have these too..hell, when i took the yellow ones off, they practically were black..

                    Us Too.........

                    We use a lot of "Black Scotchlite" here, Our Black Stripes on the Apparatus, etc. and it works well for us. It DOES reflect Silver, and it does reflect a lot of light. We use it on Helments, but it is cut to fit along the lower part of the side, just above the brim. You can see mine on the "Helment Pic" thread in the off duty Forums (Page 3). Tetrahedons are kinda scarce around here, no one seems to like them.

                      If I have to rely on someone picking out the small sections of neon color on my head..something else may be VERY wrong. Nice idea though..never thought of that.

                        The lettering on the sides of this N6A are black scotchlite and like has been said before, reflect silver. They look pretty sweet if you ask me.

                          NFPA colors are lime yellow, and orange..anything else isn't.

                          Grab your copy of NFPA 1971 and read it more carefully.

                          Garment trim is specified flourescent & reflective and in particular shades of yellow-green, orange-red, or red.

                          Helmet trim only needs to be flourescent & reflective. No colors are specified.

                          The black stuff I would assume doesn't meet the flourescence requirement.

                          Slap in on a N5A. Helmet ain't NFPA as it is so the trim won't make a difference

                              What's their definition of fluorescent? Does it only have to fluoresce (under UV light, for example) or does it have to be day-glo? If it's not defined, you just might be able to make a fluorescing black decal. . .
