The European Whole Type Approval regulations, governed by 70/222 or 1003/2010, have been in the process of changing for the past few years. One specific factor dealt with by ECE Reg. 4 is the specific field of visibility, from certain angles, when dealing with number plate surface illumination. Having previously stated a 30 visibility from the horizontal and 5 from the vertical it now mandates a 15 on the vertical up and down, when fitted to trailers.
In response to new regulations, Truck-Lite Europe Ltd has upgraded its Model 645 number plate holder: the first manufacturer in the industry to do so. By altering the design of the existing model, Truck-Lite engineers have made it possible to meet the new requirements and are the first to the post in the ever-changing market of Commercial Vehicle Manufacture.
The lamp can be fitted to the top or either side of the holder.
The Model 645 is able to fit securely onto any trailer, from commercial vehicles to horse-trailers, as well as being fitted onto existing harness-kits.
