HELLA Inc. Introduces Wiper Blade Range

HELLA Inc., the North American aftermarket subsidiary of automotive lighting and electronics supplier HELLA, has introduced the newest and largest wiper blade range in the company’s history. HELLA blades now cover 98 percent of cars and trucks with its conventional blades, rear blades, commercial blades and beam blades under the Cleantech brand.

All of the blades feature graphite natural rubber, easy change connectors (pre-installed), high-grade stainless steel flexors and a reengineered multipoint support system that provides an ideal fit to windshields.

Cleantech, the company’s newest wiper blade has a uniform distribution of forces on the windshield, which minimizes the formation of streaks. Furthermore, the aerodynamic design reduces the wind uplift, thereby reducing the wind noise as well. The design also reduces the wear on the wiper blades.

Rear Blades

The rubber of the rear wiper blades consists of an OEM-specific composition and also is coated with graphite. As a result, the wiper blade and rear windshield rub against each other less at their areas of contact, according to HELLA. The company says this not only guarantees smooth and quiet operation, but also a longer service life.

Heavy-duty Blades

HELLA’s redesigned commercial blades have undergone several tests, including endurance, pressure point and stress test. This extended range features graphite-coated rubber, which is ideal for use on buses, RVs and trucks.

To complete the package, HELLA has installation videos, in-store displays that hold 25 to 50 blades and multi-lingual packaging.
