Cyclist situated in the Blind-Spot
What’s a TruckView Fresnel lens?
Although TruckView is a visual device for drivers, it is not a mirror. It is a clear, thin, flat plastic lens that is press fitted to a truck’s passenger door window glass. Its concentric ring surface allows the driver to see through it directly, (so it’s not a reflected view) however its optical properties provide a downwards view close to and around the truck’s passenger door.TruckView therefore covers this mirror blind-spot which is the cause of so many accidents.

| VOSA’s Specification for the type of Fresnel lens to be used in a HGV. |
For your guidance, in regard to the choice of Fresnel lens offerings available in the marketplace, please note that it’s not advisable to use a standard caravan type Fresnel lens on a HGV.
The TruckView® Fresnel lens is a special lens designed to VOSA’s size & specification with the required larger, more acute, downwards ‘Field of View’, so that vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists etc.,) can be seen from the HGV cab. Should you decide to purchase a Fresnel lens other than TruckView®, please ensure that it meets VOSA’s specification for use inside a HGV truck. (Please ask us for a copy of VOSA’s Fresnel lens specification).
