A vast number of light functions can be covered with the HELLA Shapeline single-function and multi-function light series for front, side and rear lighting: position light, direction indicator, reflex reflector, tail-stop light, tail-stop-direction indicator, side marker light, clearance light, reverse light, rear fog light and warning light. Design elements without lighting function are also available. Depending on the lighting function, the lights are available with yellow, red or white covers.
The light series offers a large selection of different shapes and sizes. The modular product range makes it possible to flexibly combine lights and thus to result in a unique design. The symmetry of the lights also contribute by making it possible to mount the modules both on the vehicle's left and right sides and also twisted by 180°.
The Shapeline lights have the protection classes IP6K7 and IPX9K and are therefore protected against high-pressure cleaning and dust. Furthermore, the entire light series is both SAE and ECE-approved and conforms to EMV5.
Depending on the function, the light program offers three differing mounting systems: adhesion, screwing and snapping ball pin mounting. This makes it possible to install modules in different vehicle environments – in the area of municipal vehicles as well.
Single-function and multi-function lights in the area of municipal vehicles have to offer a vast number of attributes: Due to the often harsh operating conditions, the lights have to be particularly robust and resistant. Furthermore, they of course should also have high functionality – including to ensure the instant recognisability of the vehicles for other road users at all times.
Lastly, and most importantly, the lights should also allow for an individual design that is as appealing as possible even for municipal vehicles – but this is often very hard to implement for manufacturers when lower numbers of vehicles are manufactured. An ideal application for the new modularly designed HELLA single-function and multi-function light series: Along with innovative technology and well-known high HELLA quality with its numerous freely combinable designs, it provides for nearly limitless creativity – and therefore ideally combines technology and design. Two available design lines, the classic straight-line Shapeline Tech design and the dynamic curved Shapeline Style design, represent an additional degree of freedom for vehicle design.
In addition to the design aspect, the Shapeline lights convince in particular with their high degree of functionality: The modular product range includes lights with a vast number of different lighting functions that can be combined individually. This makes it possible to cover all conventional municipal vehicle applications. The Shapeline program is therefore particularly well-suited for municipal vehicles – for which an individual light design was not yet possible due to economic reasons – thanks to the combination of functionality and optical characteristics.
