Wiper Blades Explained

There are many different types of wiper blades available, for example: Standard wiper blades, spoiler wiper blades, flat wiper blades, flat wiper Blade Upgrades (or retrofit). Here we explain a little about the different types and their uses and applications. Not every type of wiper blade can be used on every type of vehicle - so use our vehicle search to find the correct types of wiper blades available for your car.

Standard (or conventional) Wiper Blades

Standard wiper blades are the most common type of windscreen wiper, 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 13" 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 - these are explained below.

Spoiler Wiper Blades

These types of wiper blades feature a Full Spoiler that runs the length of the blade. This helps to keep the blade closer to the windscreen at higher speeds and is usually designed for the drivers' side only. Again they are usually attached to the vehicle by means of a hook shaped wiper arm fitting.

Flat Wiper Blades Retrofit

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

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.

Being smaller than a conventional wiper it also provides less obstruction to the driver's field of vision.

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.

Once you have entered you vehicle details in our search engine we recommend that you check the fitting shown matches the wiper blades you are replacing. If in any doubt please email us at help@windscreenwipers.co.uk
