Freight Wing Launches 2012 AeroFlex Side Skirt
January 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Seattle-based Freight Wing
launched its new generation AeroFlex 2012 side skirts.
Freight Wing's new generation of AeroFlex skirts are fuel-efficient, lightweight and durable.
The new skirts have been tested to withstand temperatures from negative 103 degrees to 158 degrees. The AeroFlex 2012 also incorporates a new mounting clamp system that is easier to install and maintain.
The skirts showed a 7% reduction in fuel consumption at 65 mph in J1321 Joint TMC/SAE Fuel Consumption Test Procedure Type II track testing. The EPA SmartWay program has verified the AeroFlex 2012 as an "advanced trailer skirt," so it meets the aerodynamic requirements of California regulations as a single device.
The redesigned package weighs 150 pounds total, 30 pounds lighter than the original AeroFlex side skirt.
