In Australia, there are several types of wiper blades available for vehicles. The most common types include:
Conventional/Traditional Wiper Blades: These are the standard wiper blades found in many vehicles. They consist of a metal frame with a rubber blade attached. Conventional wiper blades are affordable but may not provide the same level of performance as newer types.
Beam/Flat Wiper Blades: Beam or flat wiper blades are designed without a metal frame, offering a sleeker appearance. They are more aerodynamic, which helps to reduce wind noise and improve performance at high speeds. Beam wiper blades also tend to perform better in winter conditions as they are less prone to water build-up.
Hybrid Wiper Blades: Hybrid wiper blades combine the design elements of conventional and beam blades. They feature a conventional metal frame with an aerodynamic cover, resulting in improved performance and durability.
Silicone Wiper Blades: Silicone wiper blades are known for their long-lasting performance and resistance to extreme temperatures. They are made of a silicone compound that provides better visibility and durability compared to traditional rubber blades. However, they tend to be more expensive.
It is generally recommended to replace wiper blades every 6 to 12 months or when they show signs of wear and tear. However, the replacement interval can vary depending on factors such as climate conditions, usage frequency, and the type of wiper blades installed. It’s important to regularly inspect the wiper blades for any damage or reduced effectiveness and replace them when necessary for optimal visibility and safety on the road. Your local Autobahn Service Centre can inspect wiper blades and keep you safe on the roads.
Note: Cleaning all dirt, road grime and bugs from your windscreen is essential to maintain wiper blade condition.
