In these days of increasing costs for transport operators, every option to reduce costs in areas that don’t impact on customer service and operational safety needs to be evaluated. Once the truck cab is fitted with Fuelscoop or Fridgescoop, the next area that should be assessed is the area under the truck body and/or trailer.
It is now scientifically proven that the turbulence from the gap under a truck body or trailer can negatively impact on the economy and handling of the truck. Exhaustive tests of under trailer skirts in the USA have consistently demonstrated fuel savings and the U.S. EPA have provided “CARB Compliance” under their “SmartWay” initiative that is only provided where a product achieves fuel efficiency gains over 5 percent.
The new Fuel-Skirts from Aeroz Products achieve the aerodynamic air flow required, but as with all Aeroz-products, Fuel-Skirts design enhances the lines of the trailer or body.
The best way to ensure the performance of an aerodynamic device, is its ability to deflect airflow rather than be deflected by the airflow and turbulence. The high quality molded Fuel-Skirt panels are designed for minimum weight and maximum rigidity.
By product quality and aerodynamic performance Fuel-Skirts are further evidence that to the transport industry Aeroz-Products remains the leader in all things aerodynamic.
