A trailer skirt made from recycled materials and built exclusively by military veterans has received certification from the EPA’s SmartWay program as a product that shows a verifiable improvement in fuel efficiency.

The Aerosmart trailer skirt from Sustainable Aerodynamic Concepts is manufactured in Northwest Arkansas. The skirt is made with materials reclaimed from scrap semi trailers. The lightweight, durable and cost-effective repurposed aluminum comes from donated, decommissions semi-trailers saving material costs which are passed on to the consumer, the company said.

Other features of the Aerosmart trailer skirting include:

  • Aluminum sheet construction allows for custom colors and logos.
  • 3-panel, dock-friendly design accommodates quick and easy installation while streamlining replacement of damaged panels.
  • 6-inch flexible and durable rubber edge; decreases contact damage and increases the skirting's life cycle; repurposed from mining conveyor belts.
  • Fits various old and new trailer types.
  • Driver friendly, requiring no maintenance aside from regular inspection.
  • Air flow reduction improves aerodynamics and fuel savings and also reduces road spray, improving the truck driver's visibility along the sides of the trailer and increasing safety for other road users.
  • 1-Year Warranty
