- Always clean your windscreen before fitting a new windscreen wiper blade for best results.
- Valeo wiper blades undergo rigorous testing, including test track laps and a 500,000-cycle endurance test.
As a major supplier to OE manufacturers, Valeo provides the same OE quality parts to the independent aftermarket. The Silencio™ range includes hundreds of references spanning all blade types and model-specific kits. The Silencio™ wiper blade range uses high-quality materials for enhanced durability and optimal wiping performance.
Valeo’s 7 wiper research and development centres are focused on improving performance and safety with constant innovation like the advanced Aquablade™ wiper blades. Aquablade™ further enhances the safety of conventional windscreen wipers by distributing washer fluid along the entire blade. This design ensures a better clean, reduces washer fluid consumption, and saves a critical 4 metres of braking distance at 50 km/h.
Silencio wiper blades are guaranteed to match the length, pressure applied to the entire blade length, and the type of hitch on the wiper arm. Silencio blades include a variety of connections and adaptors to ensure a perfect fit on any vehicle.
Producing high-quality windscreen wipers requires more than excellent engineering and design. Valeo wiper blades undergo rigorous tests, including test track laps and a 500,000-cycle endurance test. We have also confirmed our test data with the public, testing our wipers in real-life conditions. In a test conducted by the Fraunhofer institute, 70% of drivers who tried VisioBlade™ wipers thought it could prevent accidents.
