Van Side Window Fitting: How Does it Reduce Blind Spots and Improve Safety?06 August 2019
Because of their spacious interiors, closed vans are the preferred vehicle for use in commercial activities by trades people, delivery services, and taxis, just to name a few examples. Closed vans are also extensively used as private vehicles for large families because they are ideal for carrying cargo and passengers.
While there are benefits of having spacious areas to store and carry tools, cargo, and passengers, closed vans are at a disadvantage when it comes to navigating through traffic. The reason why is that the solid sides of closed vans do not have windows to see through, and this limits the driver’s visibility.
The large blind-spots of closed vans are hazardous, as these visually impair the view of drivers making it difficult for them to see other motorists, bicycles, and pedestrians. The truth is that vehicle blind spots are to blame for many accidents in Australia, and they are a serious concern for drivers of closed vans every time they get behind the wheel.
Thankfully, there is a simple solution to the problem of vehicle blind spots, and that is to install windows on the sides of closed vans to increase visibility and safety.
Van Side Window Fitting Helps Reduce Blind Spots and Improve Safety
At Jamieson Auto Fit, we can help make your closed van safer by significantly reducing blind spots that limit your visibility while driving. We can do this by installing windows on the solid sides of your van that will result in the following benefits:
Increased visibility and safety – installing windows on the solid sides of your van will significantly increase visibility and will allow you to change lanes safely. Whether you are driving down city streets or on a major highway, van windows can lower the risk of having an accident because you are better able to see vehicles approaching the sides of your van.
Enhances your van’s appeal – it’s true, closed vans are not as appealing as vans that have windows. As another benefit, installing windows on the solid sides of your van can also increase your vehicle’s resale value.
Allows more sunlight into your van – not only will van windows increase the driver’s visibility, but it will also allow more sunlight into the van. More light inside the vehicle can help you find what you are looking for easier on a routine basis, such as the case for delivery vehicles or trades people on job-sites.
