Stirling Accessories has extended its range of automotive accessories to include newly designed plastic mirror backs.
The recently launched M3000C Class II external side mirror has been designed and manufactured to allow for mirror glass curvatures ranging from 1400mm to 2000mm. A key factor is the mirror back can be used on mirror arms with diameter from 16mm to 28mm.
“These new backs are designed to accommodate all dimensions required by vehicle manufacturers and are fully compatible with existing mirror arms,” says Keith Russon, CEO, Stirling Accessories. “We anticipate that curvatures of glass will be reduced to an even smaller radius in future, to accommodate a wider field of vision for enhanced safety. Key advantages of these newly designed plastic backs over the previous model design include enhanced aesthetics, extended life, shape and colour retention, as well as impact and corrosion resistance.”
Plastic also has environmental benefits as there is less waste during manufacture. Plastic, which can be recycled, helps in the reduction of scrap metals. Unlike raw metals, plastic materials require no processing and offer faster production and installation times. An added advantage is the use of plastics contributes to keeping prices stable for longer periods.
These new components, which are designed and manufactured by Stirling Accessories in KwaZulu-Natal, encompass locally sourced materials. The company, with a rating as a AAA Level 2 B-BBEE contributor, is committed to supporting the local economy, to provide employment in the area and to maximise the use of local materials.
Quality branding gives users the assurance that all Stirling products meet stringent local and international standards in terms of materials, specifications and quality controls during manufacture.
