DuroWipers will be back at Seawork this year with an even bigger demo model following securing even greater interest for its products since the show moved to its larger venue at Mayflower Park.

Noel Gould, owner, DuroWipers, said: “On the back of the increased amount of contracts we received last year we decided to go for an even larger presence at Seawork this year.”

“Exhibiting at Seawork over the years has gained us the sort of exposure and branding that attracts clients such as the RNLI who carry out such rigorous testing on all their onboard equipment. It is a testament to our products design and durability.”

DuroWipers has recently finished the replacement and refurbishment of all the bridge windscreen wipers on yet another DFDS ferry, the Dover Seaway.

The wiper expert has a long standing relationship with the ferry operator based on product reliability.

Previously, it secured one of its largest orders to date to fit three DFDS cross Channel ferries with 45 maintenance free external DuroWipers Pantographs. Returning recently to complete the starboard wiper systems to the Dunkerque, Dover and Delft.

The units are suited for the ships because they can withstand the marine environment and continual usage. Also, any maintenance or replacements are easy to perform due to the pod design. They also come with a three-year warranty.

DuroWipers systems have a strong reputation for robustness and quality. They are the only fully enclosed system on the market which fall in line with European Safety Standards, protecting users from serious injury.

AISI 316 Stainless Steel is used extensively in the manufacturing process because of its strength and anti-corrosive qualities.

With quality as a priority, DuroWipers incorporate four G Seals and two external seals to combat water ingress, up to ten Oilite Bearings, one sealed ball bearings and two needle bearings to reduce friction and increase longevity and maintenance free performance.

All DuroWiper systems have unique patented twin drive shafts and rotary mechanism which transfers the rotary power from the motor to the twin drive shafts equally, creating a reciprocating movement which gives a smooth, powerful and quiet stoke.

Last year, DuroWipers drew the crowds at Seawork with a full-size demonstration model of the window wipers specified on the RNLI Shannon class Lifeboats.

It offers extended and lifetime warranties to both the RNLI and the Royal Navy.

For the Royal Navy, DuroWipers has retrofitted three RFA Vessels over the past five years - the Fort Rosalie, the Fort Austin and the Diligence.

DuroWipers designs, develops and manufactures all of its wipers at its factory in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, UK.

It also offers an installation service for customers who prefer the original equipment manufacturers to fit and commission their equipment. For retro-fit or replacement, removal of the old equipment can also be undertaken as part of the contract.
