When SAMU announced a tender to upgrade and decorate their fleet of ambulances in Spain, they requested a reflective material that would stand out during day & night, dawn & dusk. Their fleets needed improved visibility to ensure safety on the roads for SAMU’s personnel and their patients. In 2020, SAMU employed over 300 professionals in its 12 offices spread around seven provinces in Spain.
After analyzing SAMU’s request and consulting with their reflective sheeting dealer PRISMALITE, the Spanish converter JPP Electronica, provided a solution answering all the project demands and more. JJP Electronica, who usually works with 3M and Orafol materials, determined this application required a glossy reflective material that would be easy to apply and provide excellent printing performance. JJP uses a Roland Print system to print on white sheeting, so the only material that would fit their demand and satisfy the end-user was Avery Dennison’s specialty prismatic film, V-8000 Series VisiFlex™.
JJP Electronica installers loved the flexibility and softness of VisiFlex, enjoying how easy and quick the application process was compared to other reflective products. To date, three ambulances have been upgraded with the new design and more scheduled for completion shortly.
