Unique Clear View Defroster Applications
Traditionally, Clear View defrosters have been used to reliably defrost and melt snow or ice on rear car windows. While this is still one of the most high-quality and best performing tools for this use on the market, customers have extended Clear View Defroster applications far beyond just vehicles.
These defrosters perform even in the coldest conditions and provide full coverage to fog-prone materials. But since car windows aren’t the only things that fog, there have proven to be many uses of the Clear View defroster including but not limited to:
- Airport De-Icing Vehicles
- Oil Rig Control Towers
- Highway Warning Signs
- Race Cars
- Restored Vehicles
- Tractor Cabs
- Golf Carts
- Emergency Vehicles
- Refrigerated Cases
- Tree Hunting Stands
- Spotlights on Niagara Falls
How It Works
The defroster grid is engineered to have an electrical resistance which, when powered, provides the heat needed to clear windows of snow and ice. The heating is accomplished through contact between the defroster elements and the window.
Clear View self-adhesive heating elements come on pre-spaced rolls for easy and accurate application. These heating elements match the color of factory defrosters and adhere directly to glass or plexiglass.
The elements are simply trimmed to size between the defrosters minimum and maximum lengths for a custom fit during installation. There is no plastic backing left on the window to crack or yellow.
The defroster is connected electrically through the buss bar tabs to the vehicles power and ground, then activated with the automatic ThermaSync defroster control.
Clear View Defroster Uses
There are many unique Clear View Defroster applications, but a few of the most popular are as follows:
Driving in wet and foggy conditions is already dangerous but imagine doing it racing around a track at 100+ miles per hour without a clear windshield. Our Clear View Defrosters are used widely on racecars when conditions are less than optimal for visibility. They ensure windshields don’t fog or accumulate excess condensation so drivers are able to perform at their best in any weather.
Any avid hunter knows, the stake out is half the battle.
While sport enthusiasts have the willpower to remain stagnant in a specific spot to stake out their prey, you need a good vantage point to get the job done. Covered deer stands or hunting blinds are a great way to keep an eye on the prize while remaining warm and out of sight.
However, the temperature and the air’s moisture can content often lead to foggy tent windows and could compromise the hunt. That’s where Clear View comes in.
Easily apply the kit to the interior of your deer stand tent and avoid the problem together. Hunters will never battle condensation issues again.
Anyone lucky enough to own a boat and take it out on the open waters knows that upkeep is a major task. To keep things running efficiently, boaters have plenty of solutions, including Clear View defrosters.
Boaters complain that boat windshields remain dew covered, streaked, and fogged up and the perfect solution is a defroster kit.
While Rain-X cleaner/anti-fog wipes or a dab of any liquid soap may help the problem temporarily, it’s a hazard and nuisance better handled permanently.
Highway Warning Signs
Something you wouldn’t necessarily think about being an issue, but definitely can be life threatening, is a foggy road sign.
Road alerts that display real-time information to drivers can fog up due to temperature changes and condensation. It’s important that information is conveyed to drivers, and clear view capacities solve the fog problem.
