Make your trailer visible at night

With the recent changes to daylight saving and nights drawing in, there is still plenty of traffic on rural roads after dusk.

This brings with it a need to be seen by other road users, so farmers and contractors need to be sure that trailers are up to spec and fitte with working rear lights and reflectors.

The recently released Narva model 49 LED large rear combination lamps, created agricultural trailer sectors, feature a continuous neon-like LED light pipe that frames the lamp's border, creating a modern signature appearance, designed to lift visibility and ensure that others on the road can't fail to spot the trailer.

Additionally, the LED light pipe stays illuminated when other functions are off, while the high-quality optics featured in the tail, stop and indicator functions are designed to instantly gain the attention of those following the trailer.

The Model 49 is just 46mm deep, with no visible screws or mounting holes, so it appears almost flush with the trailer bodywork or chassis. The lamps are constructed from virtually unbreakable coated polycarbonate lenses, which are scratch and chemical resistant, as opposed to regular polycarbonate, making replacement unlikely, although for peace of mind they are backed by Narva's 5-year LED warranty.

A range of configurations include twin tail, stop and rear direction, with all versions designed to suit 9-33V and supplied pre-wired with 0.5m of cable for ease of installation.
