The trailer skirts reduce aerodynamic drag and improve fuel economy. The skirts are being required by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) on most 53 foot dry vans entering the state starting in 2013.
TransFoil Systems Aerodynamic Trailer Skirts underwent extensive testing under controlled conditions with the testing supervised by an independent third-party engineering firm. According to company, the aerodynamic skirts returned a fuel savings in excess of 10%.
TransFoil Aerodynamic Trailer Skirts are constructed of an aluminum composite and are mounted using spring-in (60 degrees) and hinge-out (90 degrees) easy swap mounts.
Obtaining the SmartWay Verification enables the company’s customers to qualify under the California Air Resources Board requirements.
