The development of LED lighting has changed the lighting industry. From household light bulbs to semi-truck headlights, LED light technology uses less energy, produces light longer and at much lower temperatures than the hot-burning bulbs from just two decades ago.
While those all seem like great features, an unintended result of lighting that does not produce much heat is a headlight’s inability to melt ice and snow that freezes to its lens.
The way they do this is by applying a heating element within the lens of the semi-truck headlight – much like the defroster element in a windshield.
When the element senses freezing temperatures, it begins to heat the lens, helping to melt the ice.
These special, heated truck headlights are also designed with a flat surface, so ice can slide off easily as it melts.
Heated semi-truck LED headlights can be used all year long, since the heating function is only activated under certain temperatures. Or, you can swap them out during warmer months if you’d like. The heated semi-truck LED headlights we currently carry are universal fit.
