HEATED WINDSHIELD WIPERS

Posted: August 1, 2014

Everblades heated wiper blades are made with an engineered EPDM rubber compound that’s said to maximize wiping effectiveness and usable life compared to natural and silicone rubber wipers. They’re handled in Canada by Andor Sales & Equipment Inc. in Moncton. If Everblades wipers wear out in less than a year, the company says it will replace them at no charge. It adds that they’ve been known to last five years on heavy trucks.

Claimed to be better than booted winter wipers, which limit ice and snow buildup but don’t prevent it on the blade itself, the heated blades actually melt ice and snow.

The product has seen some recent improvements – such as a much heavier duty switch with a lighted toggle lever and upgraded 65-strand automotive-grade wiring. They’re available to suit almost any type of vehicle, Andor says, coming with universal adapters that suit most heavy trucks as well as cars, light trucks, SUV’s, vans, and other vehicles.

The blades cost $149.95+S&H and tax, for a set. Fleet pricing is available for volume buyers. The set includes two blades, a wiring harness, and lighted switch. The harness has a 10-amp in-line fuse. Installation takes about an hour, most of that time to fish the wire through the firewall. Sales are presently handled directly by Andor. Call 506-386-4898 or e-mail ajs@nb.aibn.com.
