A reflector is a part attached to the exterior of the truck to indicate its presence to the surroundings. Because reflectors are essential for trucks to run safely, they are required by law to be installed.

What is a truck reflector?

A reflector is a component that reflects ambient light instead of emitting light like a light. The material is resin and is sometimes integrated with the combination lamp. Reflectors are sometimes called "reflectors," "reflectors," or "reflectors," but they all mean the same thing.

Reflectors for trucks are classified into four major categories according to their mounting positions: front reflectors, side reflectors, rear reflectors, and large rear reflectors. This category contains products other than large rear reflectors.
