Not all beam blades wipers are created equal

Trico explains while some brands require 20-30+ SKUs to cater for today’s modern Australian car parc, Trico Tech allows workshops to dramatically reduce inventory with upwards of 70 percent less SKUs to cover more than 96 percent of demand with just 11 part numbers.
Over the past twenty years the aftermarket has seen service intervals lengthening from 5,000kms for minor services and 10,000kms for major services to 15,000km intervals. Many drivers will even go beyond the recommended 15,000km and can get closer to 20,000km or servicing annually.
During modern service intervals, wipers are exposed to Australia’s harsh seasons with extreme UV levels, dust, ice and rain. All of these conditions combine to reduce the life of wiper blades.
It is not a matter of just changing refills. Trico says the Refill market is declining as the Australian car parc ages and today more than 75 percent of new vehicles are designed with beam style wiper blades.
Beam blades are said to provide improved performance due to their sleek, modern styling; they reportedly suit most vehicles and are designed for highly curved windshields.
Trico says its Trico Tech beam blades provide smooth, silent operation and all-weather performance with no corrosion points while the Trico Tech flat beam blade range provides fast, simple installation, with patented ‘Swift Easy Connection Technology.’
Each blade is supplied with three simple multi-fit connectors, enabling fast and easy installation on J-Hook, Pinch Tab, Push Button Wide, Push Button Narrow, Side Pin Wide and Side Pin Narrow wiper arm mounts.
All Trico Tech blades feature a UV stabilised, 100 percent natural rubber element which Trico says provides quiet operation and superior wipe quality. The blades are available in 11 blade length options from 380mm to 700mm.
Trico says it is the world’s leading wiper blade company, dedicated to providing clear vision to drivers for over 100 years. It is a supplier to leading car manufacturers and focused on meeting the needs of the automotive industry in just one category: visibility products.
