Demystification: Radial vs. Pantograph Wiper Arms


What’s the difference between radial and pantograph wiper arms and why would you choose one over another? Let us explain!

Radial arms use one arm for each blade. They create an arc-shaped sweep pattern, best for glass that is wider than it is tall. Pantograph arms use two linked arms attached to one blade which stays parallel to the side of the glass. They are most commonly used for glass that is narrower than it is tall. Shop wiper arms.
