Freight Wing has announced a new trailer side skirt, the AeroFlex Composite, which has been SAE/TMC tested to improve fuel economy by up to 7.45%. The skirts are SmartWay-verified.
Made of a pliable composite material and braced with flexible mounting rods, the new side skirts provide a clean, smooth appearance while maintaining its flat panel shape.
This new product joins the company's family of side skirts, which includes the AeroFlex DMP (formerly called the AeroFlex 2012), which is constructed of heavy-duty dense matrix polyethylene. The new composite model is of the same geometry as the DMP and gets the same fuel economy benefits as the original model – they’re just constructed differently.
Weighing in at 170 pounds, the three-piece AeroFlex Composite side skirts feature an easy-to-install pressure responsive mounting system, which provide ample support and flexibility. The composite panels are able to handle typical impact situations.
