An essential part or component of an automobile that is generally positioned on the interior just above the windscreen is called a sun visor. They are generally made with a centered flap that can be modified accordingly in order to provide a shield to the eyes of drivers as well as passengers. It doesn’t let them have direct contact with the sunlight.
Now-a-days, as technology is getting more enhanced and advanced, manufacturers are giving their best in developing such cars that will now comprise two sun visors. One will be for the driver and other will be on the passenger's side. In addition, a rear-view mirror is also fixed in between the two sun visors. Whenever required, each visor can be brought down to prevent the sunlight coming via the windshield.
Some are created and devised in such a manner that they can be left loose from one bracket and be twisted towards the window side that covers a small portion of the window from the top and stops the sunlight falling directly on the face. It has also been noted that the existing visors can also be stretched along the side window to prevent the sunlight shining on the driver or the passenger.
The flap or core of a sun visor is particularly prepared from pressboard along with a chunk of metal so that a mounting bracket can be attached to it. And the mounting bracket is basically a metal rod that is a little bent in the middle part and a bracket is fixed there that joins it with screws to the sheet metal on top of the headliner. Some are them are also designed with the help of molded substrates or polypropylene. The bend in the rod takes hold of the visor flap and keeps it in the required place. The visor flap is coated and enveloped with a material that balances the interior of the vehicle.
The sun visor market is gaining huge recognition and acceptance across the globe because padding on the sun visors has become one of the necessities for the extra safeguard of the passengers. Other safety things also encompass Ford's 1956 Lifeguard package, seat belts as well as padded dashes. The most striking part is that some of the sun visors also entail a vanity mirror for raising the level of convenience for the passengers.
A visor fixed mirror is now included among well accepted dealer-added accessories that offered high profit margins with the sales staff getting extra spurs to put them on sale. However, in certain cases, a flip up or sliding cover over the mirror can turn on the vanity lights involuntarily, that is believed to be adjustable with a dimmer control.
