The Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay program says fleets installing Aerodynamic Trailer Systems' new IAS Integrated Automated System (SmartTail with WindTamer) will satisfy California Air Resources Board (CARB) legislation. This legislation requires 53-foot trailers operating in the state to have aerodynamic devices installed on trailers that yield 5% or greater verified fuel savings.
Verified testing confirmed that Aerodynamic Trailer System's product will deliver 5.3% improvement in fuel efficiency. Aerodynamic Trailer Systems, headquartered in Chagrin Falls OH, has developed fuel-efficient products for semi tractor-trailers to reduce drag and improve fuel economy.
SmartTail and WindTamer products are designed for a 10-year life. SmartTail improves the aerodynamic profile of the trailer with automated polymer skins mounted directly to the rear doors. WindTamer improves trailer aerodynamics with its low-profile, contoured cover mounted on the undercarriage of a vehicle.
