From conventional to evolutional, Valeo launches complete Compact wiping range
Valeo Service UK has launched its premium wiper blade range for the independent aftermarket. The Compact line-up is a premium offering covering the standard and flat blade market, comprising of three ranges:
- Compact Conventional
- Compact Evolution
- Compact Revolution
Covering 95% of the UK car parc, Compact Conventional consists of 36 part numbers. Originally only available in a set, the new conventional wiper replacement range is now available as single parts. With 15 new single blades in total - eight universal singles and seven universal spoilers - as well as four new rear blades and 21 specific sets, Valeo's Compact Conventional range is the prudent choice when replacing conventional wipers.

Compact Evolution provides an innovative Uni-Click solution for flat blade replacement. This allows five flat blade connection types to be covered by only one base module and one additional module, meaning fewer part numbers and stock holding. Traditionally, these had to be covered by unique part numbers.
This Uni-Click technology has seen Valeo's Compact Evolution range increase its UK car parc coverage from 50% to 85%, resulting in less stock for distributors too. The portfolio features 17 references, ranging from 350mm to 700mm in length and new features such as end-clips for wipers.
Compact Revolution allows conventional blades to be replaced with flat blades. The extensive range covers more than 1,000 applications - 74% of the UK car parc - with nine references available, sold as single wipers. Compact Revolution's dynamic design delivers improved aerodynamics and aesthetics, an integrated spoiler and reduced wiping noice.
The Wiping Product Manager commented: 'Our complete Compact range guarantees a premium wiping solution for almost all of the UK car parc. Tested for wiping quality, durability, corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme weather conditions, we can supply a high performing wiper solution for just about any application'.
