WHO WE ARE
We are a family who wanted to buy high-quality pedestrian reflectors for our own children, but we could not find any. We started AliKat Reflectors to bring the original pedestrian reflectors made in Finland to the United States.
We are passionate about walkable cities, pedestrian safety, and bike safety. Our customers have included hospitals, police, and educational programs for children. AliKat Reflectors (pronounced "Alley Cat") is located in Orem, Utah.
An Innovative Farmer
AliKat Reflectors proudly sells the original pedestrian reflector which was invented in 1955 by Arvi Lehti, a Finnish farmer. Arvi wanted to make his tractors more visible at night, so he developed a reflector for them. He saw how useful his reflectors were and soon became inspired to create the first pedestrian reflector.
Arvi's original reflector is still designed and made in Finland, a country known for its innovative ideas and impeccable quality. Today, over half of all Finns wear a reflector.
Superior Quality and Design
Our high-quality and affordable reflectors pass all stringent safety guidelines for reflectors in the European Economic Area. AliKat Reflectors are tested numerous times during production, have superior reflective qualities, and are designed to last for years. In contrast, the United States does not currently have safety regulations for pedestrian reflectors, thereby allowing low quality reflectors into the market.
Better for You, Better for Our Planet
Some low quality reflectors may be worn once and then tossed in the landfill. Our durable reflectors can be worn for years with proper use. What's more, AliKat Reflectors are recyclable and do not require batteries.
