Duro Wipers visit

Mon, 16 February 2015

UK marine window wiper specialist, Duro Wipers Ltd was recently pleased to welcome a visit from Michael Fallon, the UK’s Secretary of State for Defence.

The Conservative politician visited the manufacturing company to show his support for the firm and was shown around the Gloucestershire factory, meeting staff and apprentices.

He was keen to learn more about about Duro Wipers’ patented transfer box which transfers the power from the motor to the two spindles equally meaning both spindles. Duro Wipers claims this provides a smooth, quiet and powerful maintenance free performance which they believe will last the lifetime of a vessel.

“It is a world-beating company, they’ve got a wiper design that nobody else in the world has got, a wiper design that comes with a lifetime guarantee.” This allows Duro Wipers the confidence to offer extended and Lifetime Warranties to the Royal Navy and the R.N.L.I.

Having retrofitted three Royal Navy RFA Vessels over the past five years the Fort Rosalie, Fort Austin andDiligence are all now covered with a lifetime warranty and thereby releasing the tax payer from the burden of maintenance cost on these vessels.

"There is a tremendously high cost of maintaining window wipers on our Fleet", we wanted to support the services of our Royal Navy and the R.N.L.I. with the best wipers in the World with a maintenance free philosophy of fit and forget.

Duro Wipers are now specified on the new Shannon Class Lifeboat where the conditions they encounter are treacherous; they need clear vision at all times and selected the product after many hundreds of hours of tests.
