Trailer Side Skirts Improved Fuel Economy
. Whether you’re a truckload carrier or a less-than-truckload carrier, you want proven solutions that can help you run more efficiently and cost-effectively. The fastest and easiest way to improve your fuel economy is by adding DuraPlate®
to your fleet. DuraPlate AeroSkirts have been tested and proven to improve fuel economy by 5-6%.
Two sizes are available: the DuraPlate AeroSkirt for Truckload Applications (for 48’ to 53’ trailers) and the DuraPlate AeroSkirt for LTL Applications (for 28’ double trailers).
Lowest Cost of Ownership. What makes DuraPlate AeroSkirts a better business decision than the competition's? Proven DuraPlate composite panels with two external steel skins thermally bonded to a high-density polyethelene (HDPE) core so they do a better job of resisting road chemicals, stones and gravel chipping, heat deformation and more. The same DuraPlate material that has become an industry standard on trailers over the past 15 years.
Fast and Easy Installation. Ease of Maintenance. DuraPlate Aeroskirts install in less than two man-hours. In the event that your trailer encounters low ground clearance, our proprietary flexible spring bracket system lets the skirt ride right over the obstacle and return to its original position. If the impact is so severe that it causes damage to the AeroSkirt, you can simply replace the broken section (AeroSkirts for LTL Applications come in two sections; AeroSkirts for Truckload Applications come in three sections). This saves maintenance time and money versus the standard single-piece designs of so many competitive trailer skirts.
