Once the sewing operations have been completed -manual or with technological supports- craftsman operator is in charge of the “saddling”, ie the assembly of the leather, already cut and sewn, on the internal support of the sunshade.
This support, also created within the Gastaldi Automotive laboratories, is guaranteed to comply with the safety criteria required by law.
The addition of a padding allows to reach the right thickness of the pantina, before being able to move on to the final stitching and closing phase of the flap and the subsequent assembly of
the articulation unit.
The used material is guaranteed fireproof and of primary quality; the yarns are resistant to tearing.
When the finished product is ready and leaves the production cycle, a rigorous testing procedure is activated, necessary to verify the seal and the precision of the seams as well as the operation of any electronic devices mounted inside the sun visor (ex. tests of switching on and off the LEDs), but also the absence of aesthetic and noise defects in the movement of the product.
