safety orange (thing)
Return to safety orange (thing)
A [fluorescent] [spray paint] used by [construction workers] to draw the eye to an object that may otherwise blend into the background. It's often used to mark new [crossbeam]s at head height.
Safety orange is named for its [colour]; other items the same colour include [Sam Browne] belts worn by [cyclist]s and the [high-visibility bib]s worn by roadside workers. [Dyno-Rod] vans are a similar colour, though more eye-jarring.
Safety orange is great stuff for spraying [Stanley knife] handles, so that you can find it when you've put it down. It also makes an [incredibly ugly|attractive] respray for your laptop. If you spray your [bike] with it, you will never get [SMIDSY]ed again.
