TRP Aftermarket Parts recently introduced a line of mirrors for all makes of Class 6, 7 and 8 trucks.
“TRP mirrors are manufactured to the highest quality standards providing operators with an outstanding product for today’s market,” said Everett Seymoure, global manager of TRP.
TRP?offers many styles of mirrors, such as an 8-in. convex mirror and a 7-in. by 16 in. west coast mirror. They come in a variety of finishes and are available for all Class 6, 7 or 8 trucks and tractors, regardless of manufacturer.
The west coast mirror comes in heated and non-heated option. The heated TRP west coast mirror features 12-volt heater elements with 60-in. leads, providing an efficient system for the cold weather season. Both the heated and non-heated options come with a mirror-bright stainless steel finish for added protection against the elements, heavy-duty multi-channel construction for durability and 5/16 in. No. 18 mounting studs for easy installation.
The convex mirror comes in chrome steel for durability and visual appeal and features an L bracket for easy installation. It also has a 5/16 in. adjustable ball stud for strength and ease of use, and its glass is mounted in ozone resistant vinyl for added protection against breakage.
TRP mirrors are backed by an 18-month warranty and available through authorized Kenworth and Peterbilt parts and service distributors throughout North?America.
Seymoure said because of their quality, TRP?mirrors can help truck operators meet new regulations established under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrations Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program.
“Starting in December, the condition of certain vehicle components, including mirrors and maintenance records will play a greater role when federal and state inspectors consider the safety fitness of operators and their vehicles,” Seymoure said.
Under CSA, when inspectors conduct roadside inspections, they will examine the vehicle’s different components and determine its safety fitness based on their observations. Instead of looking just for acute problems or issues, inspectors also will look at a variety of components. They will place greater significance on any component defects they find that have been deemed through the analysis of accident records and previous roadside inspections to have a higher chance of causing accidents.
