Glare-Free Headlamps

Increasing complaints about automotive headlamp glare have led to the development of TruView Headlamps from Wagner Lighting, which filter out yellow rays within the lamps’ projected colour spectrum, resulting in a truer whiter light and offering exceptional visibility in a full range of nighttime driving conditions, without subjecting oncoming drivers to offensive glare.
