LEBANON, IN -- (Marketwired) -- Transtex Composite announced the expansion of its family of aerodynamic solutions to include the EDGE Cone? gap reducer and EDGE Tail? rear fairing. The new solutions suite provides fuel savings of up to 10 percent and qualifies users for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay ELITE program. 

Last month, Heavy Duty Trucking named the EDGE Cone and Tail as among the top 20 trucking products for 2015.

"We now provide our customers with one-stop shopping for USA-made aerodynamic solutions that perform better and are easier to install than our competitors," said Marc Bolduc, vice president of business development at Transtex Composite, the industry leader in trailer skirts and other aerodynamic products. 

The EDGE Cone reduces air turbulence by filling the gap between the tractor and trailer and boosts fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent. Compared with competitor's products, the EDGE Cone has fewer parts, installs more quickly, is made of a puncture-resistant thermoplastic and delivers superior turbulence reduction. 

The EDGE Tail extends from the rear of the trailer to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase fuel efficiency by as much as 4 percent. The EDGE Tail provides carriers with a superior return on investment because of its 30-inch auto-deploying extension, fewer parts and less weight. 

According to Bolduc, "Carriers can expect the same superior performance from the EDGE Cone and EDGE Tail as from our trailer skirts. The average carrier will find a suite of solutions will pay for themselves in under a year."

Because of their unparalleled performance, Transtex skirts have been selected by many of the trucking industry's leading carriers, including Averitt Express, Celadon, Covenant Transport, Saia, TCSI-Transland and Werner Enterprises.
