The different types of wiper blades


Types of wiper blades

Standard wiper blades

Standards are currently fitted to the majority of new vehicles. They're usually attached to the vehicle using a hook-shaped wiper arm fitting.

The size range we offer is 11" to 26" (some vehicles require different sizes for driver and passenger sides).

 

Standard

  • All metal blade technology
  • With or without spoiler
  • With bi-material: synthetic and natural rubber
  • 4 adapters available: B, TU, U and A - Each blade comes with the adaptor required for possible vehicle applications relevant to blade size/type

Flat Wiper Blades

These wipers have a special tensioned metal strip inside the rubber structure of the blade and a more aerodynamic shape with a built-in spoiler that reduces wind noise.

Being smaller than conventional wipers, flat blades also provide less obstruction to the driver's field of vision. The size range we offer is 15" to 30" (some vehicles require different sizes for driver and passenger sides).

 

Flat

  • Mono-spline technology
  • With symmetrical spoiler
  • With bi-material rubber
  • Three adapters available (A, B and C) for optimum coverage

  • Composite blade
  • Direct fitting on the wiper arm
  • No adapters required
  • With natural rubber

Practical Sales Tips

Windscreen wipers are ranked in the Top 3 of Most Common MOT Failures

1 Remind customers that wiper blades need to be checked and replaced yearly.
2 For everyone's ease, it's advisable that all blades (front and rear) are replaced at the same time.

Fault Diagnosis

Older blades become distorted by pressure and bad weather. This prevents them from flipping and can leave them failing to clear windows correctly.
