Green Wing has its roots in a scientific approach to fuel economy as conceptually designed during wind tunnel research. The numbers didn't lie, achieving up to 7.8% in fuel savings. Ridge didn't stop there. The J1321 track testing for the EPA produced a result predicted in the wind tunnel and has been verified as real-world numbers by fleet users. What was conceived in the wind tunnel, has been corroborated both on the track and in actual use. Ridge continues to invest significant capital in research that delivers immediate fuel savings and a valuable R.O.I. for our customers. Green Wing is an excellent value for our customers that not only offers help towards compliance, but provides the savings that our customers are seeking in this competitive market.
INNOVATIVE DESIGN, PROVEN R.O.I.
Green Wing aerodynamic fairings are designed to provide the highest fuel economy at the lowest cost per mile. The unique shape and single piece construction, coupled with the exclusive heavy-duty hem at the bottom, allows Green Wing to have the closest to the ground coverage. The ground clearance arc at the bottom of the skirt, formed by the heavy-duty hem, allows the navigation of recessed docks with ease. No need for "flexible" vinyl that can add weight and can be easily torn off. Closer to the ground = greater drag reduction = increased fuel savings. The thermoformed angle at the top of the skirt aids in installation and adds strength at the attaching point to the trailer.
RESILIENT, LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION
Like other products in the Ridge portfolio, the Green Wing is made up of continuous glass reinforced, high impact, lightweight, UV protected materials. The material will expand and contract at the same rate as the trailer construction, meaning no oil canning due to temperature fluctuations. At less than 155 lbs total kit weight, Green Wing won't weigh you down. Ridge manufacturing expertise upholds our commitment to durability, reliability and cost effectiveness throughout the life of the product. DURABILITY…..THAT'S WHY YOU SEE MORE GREEN WINGS ON THE HIGHWAY…..THEY LAST.
Comprised of advanced, engineered composite material, the V-Brace doesn't resist impacts, it absorbs them. Patented technology, the V-Brace has the ability to bend 180 degrees inward or outward with 100% recovery in all temperatures. Resilience at its finest.
MORE THAN COMPLIANCE
Green Wing aerodynamic fairings are EPA SmartWay verified, Advanced Category and C.A.R.B. compliant. But why stop there? Add to the bottom line with the industry's best drag reduction and quickest R.O.I. Green Wing provides more than compliance. It provides real, proven fuel savings.
QUICK AND EASY INSTALL
Green Wing's are the only trailer fairings that come delivered pre-drilled. The simplistic design, lightweight materials, and patented V-Brace technology make for a quick and easy install.
