Exterior rear view mirrors
In order to design the exterior rear view mirror most suited to our customer’s needs, we take care of the entire process: from the design to approval and manufacture of the end product, also carrying out a visibility study to comply with all current regulations on indirect viewing systems.
At INDUSTRI we work closely with the customer throughout the entire process in order to obtain the best possible rear view mirrors for their lorries.
Interior rear view mirrors
The interior rear view mirrors manufactured by INDUSTRI are designed to be placed inside the lorry in such a way as to give the driver full view of the interior.
The interior rear view mirror is mounted on the body of the lorry by means of an arm with a plate at one end which is fixed with adhesive to another plate of similar measurements. The latter is fixed to the bodywork with 4 screws so that, in the event of impact, the whole mirror housing (complete, including the arm), would come away from the plate fixed to the bodywork.
We have several models of interior rear view mirrors:
Oval interior rear view mirrors
Our oval rear view mirrors have a main body made in Nylon 6, with a perfectly shaped cavity to house the mirror. A mirror support is incorporated to the main housing with 4 countersunk screws and the mirror is fixed to said support with double-sided adhesive.
An arm support is fixed to the back of the main housing of the interior rear view mirror using an Allen wrench; this support acts as a hinge when adjusting the mirror to either side and also secures the arm in place.
Rectangular rear view mirrors
These mirrors are rectangular in shape and are designed and manufactured in the sizes provided by the customer. They come fitted with a rear mounting arm. The mirror is fixed to a steel plate with a rubber surround to give it a pleasant appearance.
Round interior rear view mirrors
These rear view mirrors are manufactured in the diameter requested by the customer, in order to adapt to the vehicle dimensions. They have rear metal mounting arms for securing them in place according to the desired design.
As well as the integral manufacture of rear view mirrors for buses, at INDUSTRI we also separately design and manufacture a number of parts for exterior and interior rear view mirrors.
These components and spare parts for the rear view mirrors of buses and coaches are essential for them to function perfectly. Among them you will find actuators, joystick-type switches, dovetails and mirror glass.
We have the following components for the rear view mirrors of lorries:
There are different systems for mounting rear view mirrors on the bus body, depending on the model of rear view mirror.
For fixed, non-adjustable rear view mirrors we use male and female dovetails. Both are made in aluminium, injected or gravity die cast, and cannot be adjusted or moved in any way while the vehicle is in use. The male dovetail is fixed to the lorry structure and the female to the rear view mirror.
Thanks to these joystick-type switches, the driver can adjust the rear view mirrors from inside the bus without leaving their seat, making the adjustment easier and safer.
Mirror glass and its housing is designed to meet the needs of the customer, of the rear view mirror model and of the lorry itself.
Mirror glass comes in different sizes and with different curvatures. Some kinds of glass are heated to prevent them from steaming over in low temperatures; this increases the driver’s ability to see in adverse situations.
