What's the difference between Flat Blades and Standard Wiper Blades?
Everywhere you turn these days you will see cars sporting the new flat blade wiper. The old standard conventional wiper is getting slowly pushed out of the market. They look pretty impressive and are sometimes referred to as aerodynamic wiper blades. They are the go to wiper for installs on new cars as they offer a number of key advantages and this will soon see them overtake the standard 'coat hanger' model in the near future. It is worth noting that if your car is currently fitted with standard style wipers you can still go ahead and switch them out with a flat wiper blade at any time.
Advantages of Flat Wiper Blades
- Uniform Pressure Across the Whole Blade
- Superior Windscreen Contact resulting in Cleaner Windscreens
- Reduction in Windscreen Wiper 'Noise'
- Better Aerodynamics
Uniform Pressure Across the Whole Blade
Superior Contact - Cleaner Windows & Less Noise
Also, as the pressure is evenly dispersed across the surface they generate less noise compared to conventional blades and the driver benefits from a quieter environment. Commentators have described their operation as 'noiseless'.
