Trico to launch new range of beam blades at Automechanika


Trico® will introduce another innovation to the European automotive aftermarket at Automechanika.

With only 10 SKUs needed to cover 90 per cent of the European car parc, the all-new TRICOFlex® range of beam blades is ideal for garages, fuel stations and retail outlets with limited display space.

Designed around the company’s patented SWIFT® connector technology, each blade comes with a set of four interchangeable adaptors that provide the versatility to keep the range to a minimum number of parts. These adaptors enable quick and easy wiper replacement whatever the vehicle arm termination. In another ‘first’ for Trico, the blade packaging includes QR code that fire video instructions onto the customer’s smartphone to simplify the installation process. Tests have shown that following the video makes the installation considerably quicker than printed instruction diagrams.

The TRICOFlex® blade’s innovative and stylish low-profile design provides a uniform wipe, and its Memory Curve Steel™ beam ensures uniform pressure throughout the sweep for a clean, clear wipe. Trico’s exclusive, award-winning dual-point coupler prevents streaking and maximises all-weather performance, with a precision-cut wiping edge tested to perform over 1.5 million cycles. Competitively priced, the range comprises just 10 part numbers, in lengths from 400mm to 700mm.
