Simply Brands’ wiper blades succeed in independent lab tests!

Simply Brands commissioned an independent test for its recently launched multi-fit flat blades and traditional conventional blades - and passed with flying colours!

The independent testing was conducted in the USA at ARDL, a renowned ISO accredited rubber mixing and testing facility used by leading brands and OE  manufacturers.

Testing was done under OE-standard (SAE J 903 C) conditions and, as well as testing initial wipe quality, the wipers were put through a 500,000 wipe cycle durability test to ensure their lifespan. Completing the testing for the flat blades was a wind-lift test, which showed a remarkable result of zero wind lift even at speeds of 100mph.

Prior to launch, the wiper blade range was developed and tested in the UK over a nine month period. Combined with these independent results you can be assured of their performance and durability, giving you and your customers buying confidence.

The multi-fit flat blade offering covers 98% of the car parc and consists of 15 SKUs with eight original equipment (OE) fit adaptors that cater the 10 most popular OE arm types. This includes a retro fit hook adaptor to upgrade older vehicles to the latest flat blade technology.

The flat blade technology delivers perfect wiping pressure across the entire blade length thanks to two precision cut steel rails, with a symmetrical spoiler reducing wind lift at high speeds. The rubber wiping element is made of synthetic and natural rubber compound for an optimum blend of performance and durability.

The conventional blade range has 11 SKUs in lengths 280mm – 700mm, and all have a metal vented frame design with a universal pre-attached adaptor to fit all hook wiper arms, as well as legacy side pin and 7mm bayonet wiper arms.
