Great Dane Trailers will offer Transtex Composite’s Maximum Flex Skirt as its standard to customers who choose aerodynamic components on their trailers. The Transtex Composite MFS is designed to yield fuel savings of up to 7 percent, according to SAE Type II J1321 track testing results.
The side skirt also is made of lightweight reinforced thermoplastic composite panels that will not rust, corrode or require any maintenance for the life of the trailer, according to the manufacturer. A comprehensive five-year warranty also is included.
Because of its design, the Transtex patent-pending MFS can flex if it comes in contact with an obstacle in order to prevent damage and retain its shape. The panels also are waterproof and help reduce ice and snow accumulation, helping reduce splashing to improve driver visibility.
Transtex MFS fairings are verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay and are in full compliance with California Air Resources Board regulations, the manufacturer says.
