What are the different types of wiper blades

May 14 , 2021

Conventional wiper blade

Standard wiper blades are the most common type of windscreen wiper Blades, often referred to as looking like a coat hanger and are still fitted to the majority of new vehicles, although this is in decline. They are usually attached to the vehicle using a hook shape wiper arm fitting. Sizes range from 11" to 28" and it is not uncommon to have different sizes fitted to the drivers and passengers sides of the windscreen. If you already have these fitted they can easily be replaced with either another set of standard wipers or the new type of flat wiper blade upgrade.

Multi -adapters flat wiper blades:

Flat wiper blades feature a totally new style and technology and are fast becoming the standard fit on new vehicles. These types of wiper blades do not have a metal 'coat hanger' shaped frame. Instead they have a tensioned metal strip running within the rubber structure of the wiper blade. This design allows for a flatter aerodynamic shape which reduces wind noise. The internal metal strip applies constant pressure along the length of the blade and has a built in spoiler. Being smaller than a conventional wiper it also provides less obstruction to the driver's field of vision.

Flat wiper blades

If your vehicle had these type of wiper blades fitted from new then you can only replace them with a similar type of flat blade. They will not have a hook shaped wiper arm fitting. The most common type of wiper arm fittings for flat wiper blades are known as Side Pin, Bayonet, Pinch Tab, Push Button and Slider.

Hybrid wiper blades

Our hybrid wiper blades combine the performance of a traditional wiper blade with the aerodynamic properties of a joint-less blade and are suitable for both OE replacement and traditional upgrade. Hybrid wiper blades consist of a metal frame with multiple pressure points and a linked plastic spoiler which reduces lift to deliver a streak-free wipe across the screen.
