As everyone wraps up their holiday season, vehicular traffic is slowly building up in the roads of Metro Manila, raising the risks of road mishaps. In 2017, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) recorded a daily average of 367,728 vehicles traversing EDSA. Annually, at least 110,000 road crash incidents happen in the National Capital Region, which increased by 703 from the previous year. Latest reports from the agency on the causes of road crashes also show that at least 40 had been attributed to vehicle defect and faulty car parts — indicating a need to ensure proper car maintenance to minimize the risk of vehicular accidents.
HELLA, a leading European manufacturer of auto parts, believes being smart on the road is the key to avoiding vehicular accidents, especially during rush hour traffic. HELLA advocates for road safety by improving visibility when driving especially at night. With its high-quality, secure, and stylish products, HELLA hopes to provide the market with the right tools needed to become smarter drivers and car owners.
From L to R: Premium Wiper Blade, Curvo Wiper Blade and Razor Wiper Blade
Clearer and safer drive. Vehicular safety can be best ensured by having a clear view of the road through your windshield. It also helps you see crossing pedestrians especially those who are on their way home from work or school.
HELLA offers a wide range of wipers that can be installed for passenger vehicle use. They feature a nanotechnology graphite-coated rubber blade for smooth and quiet operation with clear visibility, and contact points with even downward pressure to deliver a clean wipe at every point. Some of HELLA’s wipers have a robust spoiler design to endure extremely harsh weather and environmental conditions. HELLA offers Premium Wiper Blade, Curvo Wiper Blade and Razor Wiper Blade.
For commercial vehicles, HELLA has wipers that have thicker graphite-coated rubber, a heavy duty steel frame for maximum stability and durability, glossy surface powder coating for rust protection in all weather, and multiple adaptors for maximum vehicle coverage.
Optimal sound performance. The sound within the surrounding helps drivers to navigate the road better. In fact, horns make it easier for drivers to be heard. They also come in handy when alerting other nearby vehicles.
HELLA offers horns that have varying sounds including a soft timbre and mellow sound for a more harmonic tone like the Royal Twin Tone trumpet horn, and a strong penetrating tone that is ideal for tough off-road use like Super Tone Horn. They have twice the lifetime of OE specification, are corrosion resistant and can be installed easily in tight and limited spaces.
A brighter choice. Lights are an essential part of the driving experience. They help you see the road more clearly, especially during those early morning or late night drives to and from the office and school. Uniquely designed and engineered with high-quality standard, HELLA’s bulbs produce xenon-like natural daylight output for higher contrast and better visibility.
HELLA’s bulb offerings have wider field and longer range of clearer vision that allow faster reaction time for safer driving. They employ high-quality UV-filtered quartz glass which reduces eye strain. They come in two variants: PowerBleu and Platinum performance bulbs, both designed for easy plug and play installation and directly interchangeable with original equipment (OE) bulbs.
A careful driver ensures that his vehicle is free of defects by installing quality and well-maintained car parts. With HELLA’s high-quality and stylish product offerings, roads can become safer because drivers and consumers now have access to tools they need to travel smarter.
