Windscreen Wiper Blades

One of the most important requirements for safe driving is having good visibility of the road ahead in all types of weather and driving conditions. We all understand the importance of a clean windscreen; yet often neglect checking that our windscreen wiper blades are in effective working condition until we need to use them.

Wiper blades wear over time and should be checked regularly. It is recommend to change your wiper blades every 12 months to provide maximum visibility. There are usually a few signs to alert you of wear such as streaking, skipping, squeaking and splitting – all leading to reduced visibility and slowed reaction time while driving.

Your wiper blades should wipe the windscreen smoothly and quietly and should always stop before it touches the rubber frame of the windscreen. Should you notice one of the common signs of a worn or damaged wiper blade then your wiper blades should be checked by our experts and/or replaced immediately.
