LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BetterTrucker.com, an online marketplace for better truckers and better trucking companies is introducing the new Super-Skirt System™, coined as a "next-generation" semi-trailer side skirt with many new features for transport fleets.
The Super-Skirt has four new technologies never seen before in the trailer skirt industry. The first innovation is its modular design; two feet wide panels interlock with each other for quick and easy installation, providing limitless possibilities for various trailer lengths. The second feature is the elimination of cross-member braces under the trailer body; this is possible due to the built-in stanchion support structures that secures every panel onto the trailer i-beams with two galvanized J-bolts. The third feature is its rigid dimensional shape, which disrupts laminar airflow to maintain directional control of the air, reducing surface drag and preventing wind from slipping under the trailer. And the fourth feature is the strategic placement of aft-facing safety reflectors out of the slipstream, that creates additional visibility and safety for passing vehicles.
Because of the 6% rating in less fuel consumption and a price point of under $1000, the ROI on this Super-Skirt System is quicker than most other aerodynamic products on the market, with a full return on investment possible within 3 months.
The inventor, Brian Kronemeyer will be present at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY on Thursday, March 21st in the BetterTrucker.com booth (# 67165) for the official launch the Super-Skirt System.
"The new Super-Skirt System has so many unique features never offered before in trailer side skirts. This is what made Repstar Agencies very interested in marketing Mr. Kronemeyer's new product invention. I specifically liked the new interlocking panel design and the value price point, which makes the skirt system very attractive for fleets looking for a quick and easy ROI on their aerodynamic add-on investments," says Marc Palud, of BetterTrucker.com.
