The company says its FMVSS 108 compliant lamps combine light diffusing material that gives them a distinctive, smooth, brightly glowing appearance on one portion of the lens, contrasting with dual-function LEDs with traditional bright spots of illumination on another.
“The uniqueness of the new GloLight lamps puts them in a class of their own, and one that will drive foot traffic, retail sales and higher margins,” Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics International, said.
“These new GloLight lamps provide us with a simple, yet noticeable way to visually differentiate our products from our competition, and that brings value to us, our dealers and the end-user,” Michael Terry, president of Cimarron Trailers, Inc., said. “These lamps have really grabbed our attention, and we believe that they’re going to do the same thing throughout the industry.”
The 14 new trailer lamps are the beginning of 35 new GloLight products that Optronics says it currently has slated for introduction within the next six months.
The new 12-Volt lamps come with a lifetime warranty, and lenses and housings are made of polycarbonate material that is sonically welded and waterproof.
