St. Paul, Minn. (May 13, 2010) – Ergodyne today announced the expansion of their GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel line to include the GloWear® 8252Z Class 2 Surveyor’s Vest with D-Ring Access.

The 8252Z vest is a smart twist on an Ergodyne favorite: the 8250 classic surveyor’s vest. The new 8252Z boasts multiple pockets inside and out for additional storage and a convenient D-ring access slot. This well-placed safety feature allows for easy on/off over fall protection harnesses and eliminates the need to cut a slot in the back of the vest. Similar to the 8250Z, the new vest also features a durable solid polyester front, breathable mesh back, and 3M Scotchlite reflective material. Common applications include road construction, utility crews, survey crews, construction, railway workers, baggage handlers and warehousing/distribution – or anyone wearing a fall protection harness who needs to be ANSI 107 Class 2 compliant. “With the recent publication of the 2009 MUTCD, more and more workers are required to wear ANSI 107 Class 2 apparel, and many of them are also working at heights,” said Tom Votel, CEO and president of Ergodyne. “The 8252Z is a great-fitting solution to keep these workers safe and compliant.”

The 8252Z vest is available now at authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information, visit, email or call 800-225-8238 // (651) 642-9889.

Key Features:

  • ANSI-certified polyester solid front (3.6 oz) and breathable mesh back (3.3 oz)
  • 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material; 2” Level 2 ANSI-certified
  • 5 convenient pockets: one inside; two outside (lower flap); one cell phone; and one slotted pen pocket
  • D-ring access slot
  • Zipper closure
  • Available in lime and orange
