ATDynamics EcoSkirtTM works to improve tractor-trailer fuel efficiency by reducing aerodynamic drag that occurs under the trailer where air hits the trailer’s rear axles. The side fairings help to streamline and guide the air around and to the back of the trailer.
The most competitive and profitable fleets combine EcoSkirtsTM with ATDynamics TrailerTail® technology to address the two largest areas of aerodynamic inefficiency in their trailers. The aerodynamic benefits are additive when using TrailerTails® and EcoSkirtsTM together and can deliver 8 - 12% fuel savings, depending on the product configuration.
OPTIMUM AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE
ATDynamics EcoSkirtsTM are engineered to deliver optimal under-trailer aerodynamic benefit. The integration of these side fairings with your trailer deliver maximum fuel savings and operational performance.
ULTRA-FLEX, IMPACT RESISTANT PANELS
EcoSkirtsTM are constructed of ultra-durable and flexible proprietary thermoplastic composite panels similar to the material used in trailer scuff liners. The skirt panels provides the strength and flexibility for the panels to bend but not break in collisions or contact with under-trailer obstacles. EcoskirtTM panels are highly impact resistant and designed to withstand frequent contact with tough on-road elements such as concrete curbs, steep loading docks and ice banks.
ATDynamics EcoSkirtsTM are also extremely lightweight for minimal impact on payload.
ATDynamics EcoSkirtTM technology is compatible with all trailer models and is available to be factory installed on new trailer orders or retrofitted to your existing fleet. Custom options are available for trailer applications requiring access to underside mounted equipment such as hydraulic lift-gate boxes, loading ramps and spare tire carriers.
EcoSkirtsTM will deliver years of use and fuel savings.
- Trucker-Tough Panels: Reinforced thermoplastic panels give with impact and bend back to form
- Temperature Resistance: Highly inert materials maintain their shape in extreme heat and cold
- Weather Resistance: Panels do not bond with snow and ice
- Galvanized Steel Hardware: All-weather performance tested over billions of miles
