Aerofficient Adds Two New Product Lines To Its Aerodynamic Fairing Offerings





LAS VEGAS, Oct. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aerofficient, leading designers and manufacturers of aerodynamic enhancement devices for heavy-duty truck trailers, today announced two new product lines at the American Trucking Association's Annual Management Conference and Exhibition: fairings for intermodal container chassis and a lower cost line of fairings for dry van and refrigerated trailers.

Working with one of North America's largest railroads, Aerofficient created its new chassis fairings to withstand the rigors of intermodal transfer yard operations and extended highway driving.  A patent-pending design feature of the new fairing allows it to withstand damage when a container is being loaded onto a chassis.  The top of the fairing will flex and bend to absorb the shock of an imperfect loading operation.

"We spent a great deal of time and resources studying this market before creating our new intermodal chassis fairing," said Jim Reiman, CEO for Aerofficient. "Durability and the necessity to absorb shocks and collisions with containers during the loading and un-loading process were identified as 'mission critical' design criteria.  It is now well established that side fairings can significantly reduce fleets' operating costs through fuel savings, but only if the fairing can survive the rigors of real world operating conditions.  If a trailer has to be pulled off the road to repair or replace a fairing (even if it's done at no charge) it still ultimately costs the customer money and dramatically affects the ROI.  Our fairings stand up to the challenge and generate real savings."

Aerofficient's second new product roll out is a new line of fairings for dry van and refrigerated trailers called "Aerofficient Basic."  These Basic fairings feature the exact same geometry, panels and attachment clamps as Aerofficient's award winning hinged line of fairings, but do not have the hinge.  The Basic Line will have the ability to bend inward and outward to negotiate obstacles as high as 18" and will not warp in the sun or crack in the cold. They naturally shed snow and ice, weigh just 97 lbs/side in standard installations, and are offered in multiple configurations.
