New 2020XG Mirror Provides Improved Visibility and Safety

Tuesday, July 27, 2010


New Berlin, WI (July 27, 2007)- Velvac, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of a new wide body 2020XG mirror system designed to fit directly into the OEM door “sail area” on popular GM G Van, C4500 medium duty and other TopKick models, and Ford Econoline van chassis. The 96” and 102” wide models provide great styling and visibility for many wide body commercial cutaway van, ambulance, or Class C RV applications.

Velvac’s engineers achieved class-leading visibility and glass stability through a series of innovative design features aimed at improving the rigidity of the mirror system as well as damping out unwanted vibration frequencies. The 2020XG mirror system utilizes a fully integrated base, arm, and mirror head for added stability and OE styling. An innovative pivot system allows mirrors to be folded forward or back and returned to a patent-pending adjustable “home” position for easy vehicle storage and added safety. The advanced vibration dampening in mirror head insures clear visibility even on rough road surfaces. The mirror glass and mirror head are easily replaceable helping to reduce vehicle down time and service costs.

Velvac’s current 2020 mirror system, which will continue to be offered, has been the leading mirror solution for this class of vehicles for many years. That experience was central to the development of the 2020XG mirror and the use of large flat and convex glass areas that help to eliminate blind spots around the vehicle. The mirror is available for 96” and 102” body widths in black, white or chrome colored options. The flat glass is available in manual or heated/remote control adjustment options.
