Proven Fuel Savings

In an independent test at the General Motors Desert Proving Ground, some of the world’s top automotive testing engineers validated the fuel saving performance of TrailerBlade™. Not only did TrailerBlade™ pass the Smartway® certification requirement for an Advanced Side Skirt, it exceeded the certification requirement by more than 43%.*

  • SmartWay® Certified as an Advanced Side Skirt.
  • Meets CARB Requirements.
  • Achieved greater than 7% fuel savings in an independent test.
  • Upper Panel made of industry-standard materials that are both flexible and durable.
  • Patented, spring-loaded mounting pillar not only flexes to avoid damage but is pre-loaded to eliminate vibration.
  • Pillar is self-enclosed so it avoids collecting snow, ice, mud, and other road debris.
  • Component design lowers cost of repair. You only replace what you damage.
  • Single piece, flexible Lower Skirt made of TPV rubber raises wind efficiency and ground clearance (as high as 25”) while lowering the risk of damage.
  • Easy, bolt-on installation.
  • The only 4-Way adjustable skirt on the market. Both the forward angle and side-pitch can be adjusted to achieve the optimal balance between fuel efficiency, esthetics, and durability.
  • Clean design looks like it belongs on a trailer. The Upper Panel can be color matched.

Proven Durability
The right combination of proven materials, rugged design, and efficient manufacturing make TrailerBlade™ economical to buy, easy to install, and ruggedly built. It will last for years.

  • The Upper Panels are a steel composite panel (polyethylene core) that is similar to what clads the trailer. Their high-gloss, polyester coating match your trailer’s appearance and will look great for years. The panel’s composition is formulated to achieve the precise combination of aerodynamic efficiency and flexibility. The combination of flexible composite panels and articulating Mounting Pillars allows TrailerBlade™ to absorb tremendous side impacts.
  • The proprietary Mounting Pillar pivots and articulates. This four-way adjustment not only prevents damage, it ensures a perfect installation on every trailer, every time. Its rugged, dual-spring design ensures a long life cycle. Its slim profile resists snow, ice, and mud buildup.
  • The proprietary Lower Skirt gives TrailerBlade™ the highest ground clearance in its class. TrailerBlade has successfully recovered from a 25” perpendicular impact. The skirt’s design also allows it to flex outward in order to release potentially damaging objects. It is formulated from a thermoplastic vulcanate coumpound (TPV) that will maintain its aerodynamic profile in triple digit temperatures and yet be flexible enough to pass over objects in temperatures as low as negative 40 degrees.

* TrailerBlade™ demonstrated 7.15% fuel savings. The minimum requirement for an advanced skirt is 5%.
