AGS Wiper Blades – Wiper Blades Are One Of The Most Critical Systems On Your Fleet Vehicles

Right behind brakes, wiper blades are one of the most critical systems on your fleet vehicles. Choosing the best ones for your vehicle and weather conditions is essential. Wind resistance plays a big role in wiper blade performance. Conventional blades can be affected by high winds, causing them to separate from the windshield in a condition known as wind lift.

Aerodynamic Design

AGS Wiper blades are designed with a spoiler that minimizes wind noise and lift, providing an extremely quiet and smooth operation even at highway speeds. The spoiler also helps to ensure that the wiper blade is firmly pressed against your windshield for a thorough and consistent clean.

This type of wiper blade offers a range of benefits, including superior performance in all weather conditions and a long lifespan. They are made from natural rubber, which resists cracking and drying over time. This also prevents the blades from becoming brittle and stiff, which reduces friction and makes it easier for them to glide across your windshield.

In addition, these blades are easy to install and provide a sleek appearance. They come with adapters for most vehicle models and are available in various sizes to fit your car’s windshield. They can be used in place of conventional or flat windscreen wipers. They are more durable than conventional blades and can withstand harsh winter weather conditions.

Infinite Pressure Points

Right behind your fleet’s brakes, windshield wiper blades are one of the most important systems to keep in peak condition. But they can only do their job if they have the proper amount of pressure to remove debris without smudging or leaving streaks.

Whether it’s snow, rain or wind, premium beam blades can handle it all. They turn wind resistance to their advantage by converting it into more pressure on the blade, which in turn applies greater pressure against the windshield.

Conventional wiper blades consist of replaceable rubber blades that snap into several contact points on a metal frame, each with a spring to apply pressure to the windshield. Because they have a finite number of pressure points, conventional blades tend to squeegee windshields less evenly than beam blades. This is especially true for curved windshields, where gaps can form between the wiper blade and the glass. Beam blades don’t have this problem because they have infinite pressure points.

Infinite Surface Contact

Right behind brakes, wiper blades are your fleet’s most crucial safety feature. But their performance isn’t just based on the amount of precipitation that’s falling on your windshield; wind also plays a significant role. Wind resistance can create a drag on traditional wiper blades, which ultimately leads to the wiper blade being lifted off of your windshield, known as wind lift.

The higher-quality conventional and hybrid wiper blades from Imperial Supplies are designed with infinite surface contact to prevent wind lift. Their premium construction uses compression-molded rubber for quieter performance, advanced durability and superior strength. And with TRICO’s Swift Lock connector system, the blades easily attach to your vehicle’s wiper arm.

The ANCO 97-Series, for example, is a conventional wiper blade with Duraklear Plus and an aerodynamic spoiler that grips your windshield in all weather conditions. With an infinite number of pressure points, it provides consistent wiping coverage on your windshield for better visibility on the road.

Longer Life

Windshield wiper blades can be some of the hardest working, yet least durable parts of your vehicle. They are constantly exposed to extreme temperatures and conditions, from ice and snow to dirt and dust. They are even subjected to the sun’s harsh UV rays that can cause rubber blades to dry out and crack, reducing their lifespan.

As a result, the average windshield wiper blade needs to be replaced every six to 12 months – depending on weather conditions. Traditional rubber blades have the shortest lifespan, while halogen-hardened rubber blades last a bit longer and silicone blades can last a full year under normal use.

You can extend the life of your wiper blades by regularly cleaning them with washer fluid and using a rubber protectant. It only takes a few minutes and can help to extend the life of your wiper blades significantly! You can also help to reduce the wear of your wiper blades by always turning on your defroster before you turn on your wipers. This helps to clear ice, dirt & grime off your windshield rather than having your wipers try and scrape it away at the same time.


Wiper blades are a vehicle maintenance essential. Consider your local climate and typical driving conditions when selecting a wiper blade type. Traditional metal frame blades are inexpensive. But unless you’re unphased by poor quality, they aren’t the best choice for high speeds.
