Aerofficient announced two new product lines at the American Trucking Associations’ annual Management Conference & Exhibition: fairings for intermodal container chassis, and a lower-cost line of fairings for dry van and refrigerated trailers.
Aerofficient designed its new chassis fairings to withstand intermodal transfer yard operations and extended highway driving. A patent-pending design feature allows the new fairing to withstand damage when a container is loaded onto a chassis. The top of the fairing will flex and bend to absorb the shock of an imperfect loading operation.
The “Aerofficient Basic” fairings for dry van and reefer trailers feature the exact same geometry, panels and attachment clamps as the company’s hinged line of fairings, but lack the hinge. The Basic line has the ability to bend inward and outward to negotiate obstacles as high as 18 inches and will not warp in the sun or crack in the cold. They naturally shed snow and ice, weigh 97 pounds per side in standard installations and are offered in multiple configurations.
