HGV lights for towing vehicles and trailers
HGV lighting is there to ensure the safety of the truck driver and other road users. There are different requirements for front lighting, side lighting and rear lighting. However, all lights must have the “E” mark. HGVs are manufactured with the relevant standard lighting. With regard to front lighting, this includes dipped-beam headlights, main-beam headlights, parking lights, direction-indicator lights, daytime running lights and outline marker lights. Additional truck driving lamps can be mounted on the front of HGVs. Suitable main-beam headlights and fog lights are available. These improve HGV driver safety at night and in fog. Fitting parking lights or outline marker lights on the front may be another option depending on the size of the vehicle. LED beacons can also be mounted if required.
A range of additional side lights are available for you to choose from based on the individual requirements of your HGV or trailer. For example, side marker lights or side parking lights. In addition, side reflectors can also often be used. For more information, refer to ECE regulation 48.
Statutory legislation sets out HGV lighting requirements including HGV rear lamps and trailer lighting. Depending on the vehicle, a high-mounted brake light or outline marker light may be optional or even mandatory. Work lights at the rear or front may only be used when the vehicle is stationary. An additional, separate switch must be used to operate work lights.
High-quality LED lights for HGVs
HGV LED lights use state-of-the-art lighting technology. LEDs are long-lasting, vibration resistant and energy saving. High-quality LED lighting does not need to be replaced or repaired for many years. The brightness of the LEDs ensures good visibility. Careful connection of the cable to the LED lamp housing ensures that it is water resistant. Manufacturers of well-known brands guarantee this. LED lighting often works with an operating voltage of 12 volts or 24 volts.
