SAVANNAH, Ga. — Great Dane has announced that Transtex Composite will be its standard side skirt supplier.
The Transtex Composite Maximum Flex Skirt will be standard for customers looking to spec’ the aerodynamic option on new trailers.
Great Dane has found the skirt delivers fuel savings of up to 7%, verified by SAE Type II J1321 track testing. It’s constructed from lightweight reinforced thermoplastic composite panels that are corrosion-resistant and will last the life of the trailer, Great Dane claims. The skirts are backed by a five-year warranty.
The skirts are also flexible enough to bend when they come into contact with obstacles and they’re waterproof to avoid snow and ice accumulation.
