Encourage wiper blade replacement this winter

First Line is urging technicians to promote the importance of checking and potentially replacing wiper blades this winter.

The company says it is best practice to change wipers annually as a matter of course and not leave them to deteriorate to the point where smearing impacts the driver’s visibility. Every Borg & Beck wiper blade is supplied with a complete selection of fitting adaptors to ensure the widest possible vehicle coverage for minimum stock investment. All the blades are manufactured from 100 percent natural rubber with a liquid graphite coating for long-lasting smooth, streak-free and silent operation.

Conventional blades are available in sizes from 11 to 28 inches, while the spoiler blades, which are mainly fitted on the driver’s side and ensure extra contact, are available from 18 to 28 inches. Both feature a high strength zinc galvanised steel frame and stainless-steel backing, which means they are robust, while remaining corrosion free. The Borg & Beck flat blade design features a flatter spoiler to minimise drag and enhance screen-clearing. They are supplied with a multi functioning mounting base and clips for easy fitment and are available from 15 to 30 inches.

Also in range are the 16 to 28 inch hybrid blades, a modern replacement to a conventional blade, featuring an integrated spoiler that runs the whole length of the blade, providing a chatter free, smooth wiping action. A rear blade replacement is also available, sizes range from 8 to 16 inch.

To support garages to encourage drivers to replace their wiper blades, First Line has produced a poster outlining key information on when to replace wiper blades, available on request by filling in the online form
