Sliding side fairing
Aerofficient designed its Slider side fairing for on-highway trailers to expand or contract automatically when the trailer’s axles are moved, filling the gap between the trailing edge of a standard fixed trailer side fairing and the trailer’s tires. The side fairing, which has been verified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership, is affixed to the trailer’s sliding axles and moves forward and rearward with the axles; no driver involvement is required. If maintenance is required beneath the trailer, the Slider can be detached from the axles and slid forward for quick access under the trailer. The durable side fairing is made with an engineered automotive-grade injection-molded plastic panel material. The hinged technology is designed to permit the fairings to bend in or out 90 degrees to pass over obstructions without being damaged, hold their shape in extreme temperatures and resist ice and snow packing. A clamp system is designed for fast installation without the need to drill holes in the trailer. The side fairing can be installed with the company’s fixed fairings on new trailers or added to units with existing Aerofficient fixed-side fairings.

Loading dock safety system
Castell’s Salvo Control Panel+ is designed to prevent injury by making it impossible for trucks to drive away during loading or unloading. The SCP+ works by attaching gladhand locks to the truck’s emergency brake line, ensuring brakes are applied. Once the gladhand lock is applied, a coded key is released, which is used to open the dock door to begin loading or unloading the trailer; only after work is completed and the door closed is the key needed to unlock the gladhand brake lock released, making it impossible for the driver to depart prematurely. An ergonomic enclosure is designed for fast access to electrical terminals and to reduce wiring time. An illuminated lock is available for use in 24/7 operating environments.
