Tire Protector USA announced that its fuel-saving EcoFins Vortex Generators are now available in side skirts.
EcoFins help reduce drag, according to the company, by spinning the air as it leaves the rear of the vehicle. Each vortex lasts several meters, keeping airflow controlled and keeping it from becoming turbulent, creating a stabilizing effect on large vehicles. This allows the vehicle to move forward more easily as it encounters less drag, resulting in better fuel economy and more stability.
EcoFins side skirts with vortex generators can help stabilize the trailer. The company says this can increase fuel mileage up to 20% compared to other side skirts on the market.
