OptiFlow Front Fairings

WABCO’s designed, developed and tested devices composed of either one or three pieces to reduce the open space between the tractor rear and the trailer front.

By reducing this space, without interfering with mobility, tractor-trailer aerodynamics is greatly improved, especially in side angled wind conditions. Recognized by EPA as a fuel saving device leading to a Smartway designation. Easily installed on new or used trailers, bolts to the front face of the trailer for a secure, firm attachment without interfering with hookups, ID plates and placards.

Nose Fairing

3-piece plastic body that fits reefer or dry vans. High impact resistance and basic modularity whilst offering 1.8% fuel savings at highway speeds. On request at several OET’s, or as aftermarket, offering installation times as short as 4h

 

  • Aerodynamically designed to fill the cab area between the tractor and the front of a dry trailer shielding the negative effects of crosswinds to optimize fuel savings and driving stability
  • The three piece nose fairing design allows for easy installation and fit to any trailer wall, as does the one piece nose fairing and the vortex stabilizer
  • Does not interfere with turning radius of tractor
  • Open design to avoid interference with hook up
  • Provides a highly visible area for graphics
  • Rust resistant fasteners
  • Fiberglass construction for years of life, UV stable with no thermal expansion
  • Maintenance free and should be included trailer's periodic inspection routine
  • EPA Smartway recognized
  • Proprietary design and construction
