Truck-Lite releases Roadmax LED headlights for medium-duty trucks

truck-lite-roadmax

Truck-Lite Co. LLC has added the Roadmax headlight system for the medium-duty market to its line of custom LED headlight products. The Roadmax system is now available as a factory-installed option on new Freightliner M2 models 106 and 112 and the Thomas Built C2 bus, and as a retrofit on previous generations.

Truck-Lite’s LED headlights offer improved driver visibility by utilizing a state-of-the-art beam pattern and producing a color temperature identical to that of sunlight, leading to enhanced object recognition at night and increased visibility by day. In addition to reducing eyestrain for drivers, Truck-Lite’s LED beam pattern increases reach while reducing potential glare to oncoming traffic. Coupled with Truck-Lite’s exclusive Diamond Shell 2.0 lens coating, the hazing and crazing that plague typical headlight lenses are virtually nonexistent. Eliminating the need for buffing and polishing can ultimately boost a fleet’s bottom line over the life of the truck.

The Roadmax system is rated for 30,000 hours compared to a typical halogen system’s rating of 1,000 hours. Light output of a halogen bulb can decrease by as much as 25% in the first 100 hours of use while Roadmax LED headlights may experience only a 7% drop in output over 25,000 hours. Finally, the Roadmax system exerts far less draw on a vehicle’s electrical system, freeing up power for other energy-hungry devices that a crucial for a fleet’s success.

According to Truck-Lite, the benefits of the Roadmax headlight system are as follows:

  • Rated for 30,000 hours;
  • Offers improved driver visibility by utilizing a state-of-the-art beam pattern and producing a color temperature identical to that of sunlight, leading to enhanced object recognition at night and increased visibility by day;
  • Increases reach while reducing potential glare to oncoming traffic;
  • Comes with Truck-Lite’s exclusive Diamond Shell 2.0 lens coating, the hazing and crazing that plague typical headlight lenses are virtually nonexistent, eliminating the need for buffing and polishing;
  • Exerts far less draw on a vehicle’s electrical system; and
  • The light output of a halogen bulb can decrease by as much as 25% in the first 100 hours of use, while Roadmax LED headlights may experience only a 7% drop in output over 25,000 hours.
