Laydon Composites, a Canadian company, has several options for its TrailerSkirts product line that have now been certified by the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board.

These comply with the CARB requirements for 2011 and later model year trailers used in California.

The CARB requirement state that any 53-foot box trailer have aero devices that cut fuel consumption by 5% or more and that 53-foot refrigerated vans have aero devices that cut fuel consumption by 4% or more. The rule went into effect January 1 and covers all trailers designated as a 2011 model year or later.

Laydon Composites makes five aerodynamic devices for trailers to comply with the rule, with two options for refers and five for dry boxes. These fairings can be ordered directly or ordered through the trailer distributor, dealer, or manufacturer. The fairings were tested at the Goodyear Proving Grounds to meet the CARB and EPA requirements.

The skirts are also built to heavy standards to resist curbing and railroad-track damage. Each has full-flex struts which allow them to bend up to 90 degrees rather than snap as solid plastic and laminates fairings often will. Laydon Composites claims to have the most damage-resistant aero fairings on the market.v
