WABCO to showcase new trailer skirt at ATA convention

WABCO will showcase its OptiFlow TrailerSkirt at the 2016 American Trucking Associations (ATA) Management Conference and Exhibition (MCE) next week in Las Vegas

The OptiFlow TrailerSkirt, a lightweight aerodynamic side skirt for trailers, is EPA SmartWay and C.A.R.B. approved and can provide more than five percent fuel savings at U.S. highway speeds, the company says.

The aerodynamic solution features a unique, patented one-bolt mono clamp technology for fast installation as well as material that is lighter and more rigid than most comparable aerodynamic solutions currently available in the North American market.

Earlier this year WABCO acquired Canada-based Laydon Composites Ltd. (LCL), which has enabled WABCO to further strengthen its position in the global industry and in the North American market.

“WABCO offers fleets a comprehensive portfolio of aerodynamic products that help them improve operating efficiency and meet today’s strict environmental regulations,” says Jon Morrison, WABCO president, Americas. “We are excited to be showing our OptiFlow TrailerSkirt aerodynamic solution at ATA.”
