Falconer, NY – Today, Truck-Lite Co., Inc. announced the “release
of an innovative line of LED lighting products that allow for flexible mounting,
without the need for additional accessories and with versatile
wire options, that all adds up to saving the customer money”, said Bob Ives,
Vice President of Marketing.
Named the Flex-Lite, the new line of LED products features two new robust
thermoplastic housing designs, allowing for a flexible mounting surface to
be molded directly around the lens. The unique design of the “winged” version allows for a wide array of mounting options and is ideal on the corner radius for trailer and body applications. Truck-Lite believes that the “non-winged” version
will be popular in the aftermarket because of its versatility to immediately
replace failed lamps without tools or additional parts and its ability to
cover the holes left behind from initial installation.
Manufactured with a specially engineered peel-and-stick adhesive backing,
the lamps are affixed to the surface with a heavy-duty adhesive that’s designed
to hold up to weather, impact and much more while maintaining a strong hold.
Their adhesive backing has been rigorously tested against pressure washing
and other elements, offering a permanent installation that's quick and easy.
Available with both a rear-exit and side-exit wiring housing style, the lamps
allow for both installation without a wiring feed hole (for installation against
any flat surface), as well as a clean installation with power and ground wires
feeding into the vehicle or trailer body.
The small, low profile design of the Flex-Lite lamps is extremely resistant
to damage from impact, heat entrapment and as it’s less than ½” protrusion
from the vehicle making it an excellent option along narrow mounting rails,
above loading doors or wherever space is at a premium.
“The installation of the Truck-Lite’s Flex-Lite line of lighting products can considerably decrease the time needed on the production line, or when retrofitting existing vehicles” said John Howells, Truck-Lite’s Vice President of Sales. “Traditional clearance and marker lighting products require the use of accessories and mounting tools, which can make installation cumbersome and time consuming task, especially while positioned on ladders at the top of heavy-duty trailers. The features of the Flex-Lite line of LED products not only remove the need to purchase costly mounting plugs and brackets, but also eliminate the added time to drill, assemble and install these additional accessories”,
