CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio —The Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program has announced that fleets installing Aerodynamic Trailer Systems’ new IAS Integrated Automated System (SmartTail with WindTamer) will satisfy stringent California Air Resources Board (CARB) legislation requiring 53-foot trailers operating in the state to have aerodynamic devices installed on trailers that yield 5 percent or greater verified fuel savings.
Verified testing has confirmed that Aerodynamic Trailer System’s product will deliver 5.3 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, according to Jim Domo, the company’s CEO and COO. Aerodynamic Trailer Systems developed the fuel efficient products for trailers to reduce drag and improve fuel economy, he said
The SmartTail and the WindTamer products are designed for a 10 year life.
“The SmartTail improves the aerodynamic profile of the trailer with automated polymer skins that are mounted directly to the rear doors,” Domo said. “The WindTamer improves the aerodynamics of the trailer with its rugged low profile contoured cover mounted on the undercarriage of a vehicle.”
