Side Skirt Alternatives In Tennessee

Our Aerodynamic Systems Give You Fuel Efficiency 

Aero Systems That Reduce Fuel Costs

When it comes to the latest technology in the transportation industry in Tennessee, side skirts aren’t the only answer for compliance issues and fuel economy. When they first came out, side skirts were seen as cutting edge technology, and while they are effective, the engineers at SmartTruck have done their homework to create an entire system of aerodynamic products. We have aerodynamic systems for your trailer that look great and can lower your overall operating costs adding more money to your pocket.

While trailer fairings help reduce the wind resistance, our aerodynamics systems are made up of multiple elements. We offer more choices and different systems to add to your trailer.  Our systems pay for themselves over time. SmartTruck technology is an investment in your bottom line.

Side Skirts Aren’t The Only Way

Every trucker knows that side skirt panels are installed to the lower edges of the trailer and then filled along the gap between the front and rear axles. These trailer skirts are constructed with materials such as aluminum, thermo-plastic, rubber, and fiberglass. The trailer skirt design allows for easy installation on a range of trailer lengths. Most side skirts can add an additional 130lb to 350lb of extra weight to your trailer.

At SmartTruck, our aerodynamic systems are lighter and add a more modern look to your trailer. In fact, our aero systems are perfect for cargo trailers or any type of tractor trailer. All of our aerodynamic products are incredibly durable and maintenance free. There’s never any interference with driver visibility or loading docks. Our systems are quick and easy to install. It’s an investment that pays for itself over the long haul.

Aerodynamic Systems:  Who Says Trucks Can’t Fly?

Curious kids become curious adults. The engineers at SmartTruck have spent a lot of time pouring over aerodynamic research and doing their own studies. Why? Simple- to make your trailer more aerodynamically sound.

We’ve found the most effective ways to reduce the way air moves around and over your trailer. By reducing the drag in the airflow, our aero systems make your trailer more fuel-efficient. This is the exact same technology that is used to study aerodynamics to make airplanes and racecars more fuel efficient, so why shouldn’t we apply this technology to the transportation industry?

EPA SmartWay Verified & C.A.R.B. Compliant

Most of our SmartTruck Aero Systems are verified by EPA’s SmartWay Program and therefore accepted by C.A.R.B. for their requirements in California. This means you can be sure your trailers are completely compliant if you haul in and out of California.

From national trucking companies to local owner operators, the staff at SmartTruck is here to help you find ways to be more efficient. Call us and let’s talk about ways we can help you run leaner.

Aerodynamic Systems For Your Trailers: Third Party Validation

Our engineers have utilized the expertise of both CD-Adapco along with the University of Tennessee SIMCENTER to verify the performance of our products. Not only did they validate and approve of our aerodynamic systems, but our TopKit Fairing System was named a HDT Top 20 product for both 2015 and 2017.

Whether you’re a local  fleet, large leasing company, or a major corporation with 25,000 or more trailers, you’re always looking for ways to reduce your operating costs or stand out from your competition. At SmartTruck, our engineers have been researching ways to apply aerodynamic technology to the trucking industry, and we’ve found just the thing to reduce your fuel consumption. Set yourself apart from your competition with SmartTruck technology.

We’re proud of our products and encourage you to talk to one of our local reps today to find out how easy it is for you to experience the benefits of SmartTruck technology.
