Truck-Lite has introduced heated Super 44 and 60 Series stop/tail/turn (STT) LED lights to reduce buildup of ice and snow on light fixtures.
Truck-Lite says heated LED lighting solutions can prevent damage to truck and trailers caused by poor visibility, ultimately preserving shipping capacity and helping to reduce weather-related shipping delays in an already-stressed industry.
“As we move into the busy holiday, shipping season, there’s an increase in freight demand causing shipping capacity to grow even tighter,” says Shane Brown, vice president and general manager, Truck-Lite. “We want to help commercial fleet operators keep their fleets operating safely during the winter months, which is why we are now offering heated lighting options of our most popular stop/tail/turn products.”
Designed to combat ice and snow build-up, Truck-Lite says the heated Super 44 and 60 Series LED STT lamps represent the latest innovations in lighting and safety. Using self-regulating heating technology, the lamps are warmed continuously once the temperature falls below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. These lamps are rugged and durable, capable of withstanding vibrations of up to 10 g-force. Truck-Lite says its engineers developed these products without sacrificing product aesthetics. The heated Super 44 maintains the iconic “pentastar” light pattern that so many fleets have long recognized as a symbol of Truck-Lite quality, the company says.
Incorporating heated light fixtures like heated Super 44 and 60 Series Stop/Turn/Tail lights not only helps to protect drivers from potential accidents, but also extends the lifespan of older fleets negating the need to sideline vehicles for parts replacements due to accidents.
