-with charging on a water basis (only in a warm season)

Every experienced driver who has been on the road for a long time knows that providing good visibility is the key to preventing accidents. To do this, at a minimum, you need to maintain the cleanliness of the windows of your own vehicle. Wiper blades - the most important component in this matter. But how to choose the wipers correctly? After all, this automotive part should not be better able to cope with their direct responsibilities. About this later in the article.

For a start, it should be noted that wipers for the car are divided into types:
1. winter
2. summer

"Winter brushes" are characterized by greater elasticity, which is caused by the use of soft "rubber". In the frosty season it is recommended to install frameless wipers on cars.

In order to make the selected brushes ideal for the owner, some basic criteria should be considered when choosing:

1. Versatility mounting structure.
2. The corresponding length of the right and left brushes.
3. The quality of the material from which the tape is made.
4. Price category.

Taking into account the main points, all vehicle owners will be able to easily choose wipers that meet their individual requirements.

Today, the auto parts market is literally overflowing with various types of wipers. They differ in price, structure and working material.

1.Frame wipers.
2.Frameless wipers.
3.Hybrid wipers.

Frame wipers are a classic. Their design is considered the most common. The density of the fit to the glass is provided by the systematic work of the rocker arms with hinges. Bushings and axles of such wipers are made of the most popular plastic today. Due to this, the degree of icing of the material is significantly reduced; at the lowest temperatures, ice is cleared without difficulty

Pricing policy is quite democratic, which makes them accessible to the majority of the population. However, the service life of cheap windshield wipers is extremely short. Some time after the purchase, their functional ability decreases, there is a creaking, a loose fit to the glass, and, accordingly, the appearance of bands of dirt.

Case form "beskarkasnikov" resembles a spoiler made of rubber and plastic. Inside it are two thin plates of metal, firmly holding the rubber blade, which, in turn, in contact with the glass, makes cleaning. The ends of the janitor are equipped with plastic plugs, and in the center there is a mounting bracket. Thus, a reduction in icing sensitivity is achieved. With active work, such wipers are virtually silent. The immediate advantage of "beskarkasniki" is the ability to replace the rubber blade, which makes them particularly economical . Frameless janitors, on average, can be purchased for 1200 rubles.

Hybrid wipers have a special design that adapts to any shape of the windshield and provides a snug fit. This is a kind of "mixture" of the hinge system with a rocker and a plastic spoiler. Hybrids differ from classic wipers by a significantly lower frame height. In the latter case, the frame is fully enclosed in the casing-fairing.
