Borg & Beck adds wiper blades

The First Line Group (FLG) has added a comprehensive range of wiper blades, under its world-renowned Borg & Beck brand, to provide motor factors and their workshop customers with a premium quality wiping programme.


As would be expected from a Borg & Beck product, each wiper in the 55 part number, five style range is supplied with a complete selection of fitting adaptors to ensure the widest possible vehicle coverage. All the blades in the range are manufactured from 100% natural rubber, with a graphite coating that delivers a smooth, streak-free and silent operation, but has the additional benefit of providing excellent longevity.

The Conventional Blades, which until relatively recently were the standard fitment for most vehicles, are available in sizes from 11 to 28 inches, while the Spoiler Blades, which are mainly fitted on the drivers side and ensure extra contact and therefore improved visibility at motorway speeds, are available in lengths from 18 to 28 inches. Both feature a zinc galvanised steel frame and stainless steel backing, which means they are robust while remaining corrosion free. Performance is guaranteed due to their liquid graphite blade coating, with the spoiler version ensuring optimum screen contact, whatever the conditions.

For superior all-weather performance combined with the most up to date aesthetics, the Borg & Beck Flat Blade features a unique design with a flatter spoiler, which minimises drag, but maximises screen-clearing performance. Not only incorporating the liquid graphite coating, these blades also come with a multi functioning mounting base and clips, for ease of fitment and are available from 15 to 30 inches.

Also in range are the 16 to 28 inch Hybrid Blade, which provides motorists with a modern replacement to a conventional blade that combines the aerodynamic properties of the Flat Blade and the reliable wiping performance of a traditional Conventional Blade. Its stylish looks come from an integrated spoiler that runs the whole length of the blade, which reduces wind lift at high speed whilst providing a constant downforce providing an even load distribution across the windscreen. This design offers a chatter free, smooth wiping action, which prolongs the life of the blade and has become the choice blade for many whether that’s as a direct replacement or to replace the Conventional Blades that were fitted as standard.

No range is complete without a Rear Blade offering and the high strength zinc galvanised frame with UV coating and liquid graphite coated blade, combined with multiple mounting clips, means that these blades make the ideal rear wiper replacement and provide the final element in the premium quality Borg & Beck wiper blade range. Sizes range from 8 to 16 inch.
