More high-tech than you think: car mirrors Rear-view mirrors are simple and reliable modules making car manoeuvring an orienting considerably easier. A rear-view mirror is mandatory and can assist a driver in the most precarious driving situations. Modern rear-view mirrors and side mirrors nowadays have several additional functions. Double is better It was a very peculiar fashion for 1980ies cars only to have one standard side mirror on the driver's side. An additional side mirror on the passenger's side was available at a surcharge. Even luxury models and high-priced sports cars were no exception to this rule. This unusual manufactural whim, causing cars to appear unsymmetrical, soon became unfashionable again. Nowadays, new cars are always equipped with two side mirrors and one internal rear-view mirror. This is as it should be, because safe backward driving is hardly possible without a complete set of rear-view mirrors. This also applies to cars equipped with proximity sensors. Maximum comfort and safety The mirror glass of an external side mirror nowadays is placed in a massive plastic casing. Most side mirrors can be automatically adjusted even in the cheapest cars. Some manufacturers prefer mechanical adjustment solutions to electric ones. Nevertheless, adjusting the side mirror from the inside is standard in new cars. This is as it should be: especially in narrow situations car mirrors should be directed towards dangerous collision points. Parking backwards in the often much too narrow parking garages is hardly possible without adjustable mirrors. Side mirror with an extra Over time, side mirrors have become rather complex modules with multiple functions. Many cars have more than an integrated motor for mirror adjustment. Executive model cars often have blinkers on the mirror casing. Many manufacturers add temperature sensors to the side mirrors. At any rate, heated mirror glass can be found on the ordering list. This makes a side mirror module quite expensive. The mirror glass of a side mirror has a slight enlarging effect. High-grade glasses have a dead angle mirror and colouring for residual light amplification. Quickly damaged, soon mended Nowadays, side mirrors have a passive as well as an active retracting function. Although its casing looks quite massive, it can be folded easily. This might come in handy in narrow driving situations. The main reason for retractable mirrors is two cars passing each other too closely. The casings may scratch, but at least damage of the door is avoided. The glass often gets damaged as well, but this is no longer too expensive Why heated mirror glass? A heated mirror glass has the advantage of clearing itself of ice very quickly in case of frost. The required technology is very simple: a network of heating wires is glued behind the mirror glass. Glass and wiring are covered with a plastic holder, with which the module can easily be mounted in its bracket. For installing and removing mirror glass, no special tools are necessary. A long and broad screwdriver is sufficient to lever the glass from its fixing. In case of installation of a heated version, the electric contacts are often automatically sealed. Long-lasting quality Most mirror glasses are sensitive to rust. Its vapour-deposited layer contains iron. It constant exposer to weather conditions cause the mirror to become murky, colouring brown.
