Utility Trailer Unveils New Side Skirt Design
Mar 7, 2013 1:32 PM
Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company has introduced Utility Side Skirt 120A-4, the company’s new advanced aerodynamic side skirt design.
The USS-120A-4 is U.S. EPA SmartWay- verified to achieve greater than 5% fuel savings and can be used in combination with low rolling resistance tires on Utility trailers to achieve CARB (California Air Resources Board) compliance for California operations.
“The new USS-120A-4 design is engineered to achieve greater ground clearance to reduce impact damage while maintaining the EPA ‘advanced’ trailer skirt designation,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing at Utility. “Similar to our previous USS-120A design, this new generation maintains a unique patented design to provide long term durability.”
The USS-120A-4’s galvanized high tensile steel bracing system allows the side skirt to flex both inward and outward, which can be bent back to their original shape if damaged. The side skirt is also manufactured with a UV protected bi-directional Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) construction. To further reduce impact damage the forward edge of the skirt is securely bolted with a “spring” attachment at the support leg assembly.
Utility offers a 5-year warranty on the USS-120A-4 and is now available as a factory or dealer installation option for new Utility trailers. Retrofitting for existing trailers is available through Utility’s Aftermarket Department.
To see the new USS-120A-4, visit Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company’s exhibiting booth at the Mid-America Trucking Show from March 21st to March 23rd in booth #34795.
