4>Shop Wiper Blades In Canada

The only time we're reminded of wiper blades is when it's raining or snowing. It's so easy to take them for granted since they're seldom used. Yet, a set of wiper blades is one of the most important safety component of a car.

A set of good wiper blades may need replacement after anywhere between 6 months to one year. Some may even last up to two years depending upon the usage.

Types of wiper blades:There are two types of wiper blades depending upon their structural features

  1. ? Conventional wiper blades: They're the most commonly used wiper blades. Conventional wiper blades have a replaceable rubber blade that's worked into a spring tensioned frame assembly. A metal spline supports the rubber component of the blade. These types of wiper blades often exhibit uneven pressure over the curved windshield.

  2. ? Beam blades: Beam blades are designed for a more contemporary usage. There are no external frames. A steel spring is incorporated directly into the rubber. They exert equal pressure over the windshield surface, making them a popular choice with changing times. Unlike conventional wipers, their rubber blades are not replaceable.

Benefits of wiper blades

  1. ? Wiper blades improve visibility in case of falling rain or snow.

How to take good care of wiper blades?

Like any other car component, wiper blades demand care which you can provide in the following ways:

  1. ? Wipe the rubber blades with a clean, wet cloth everyday or every time you wash your car.
  2. ? There are many products in the market that properly clean wiper blades while protecting rubber components from cracking and breaking.
