Fontaine Modification Fleet Services is now authorized to install and distribute the patented FlowBelow Aero Tractor AeroKit, a system of aerodynamic wheel covers and tractor tandem fairings designed to create fuel savings.
The kit has proven to reduce fuel consumption by more than 2% through independent, third-party tests including SAE Type II, wind tunnel, CFD modeling and on-road fleet tests. Fontaine has completed more than 300 post-production FlowBelow AeroKit installations. Long-haul fleets typically report a return on investment within a year.
“We are very pleased offer fleets the ability to spec our product on new trucks routed through Fontaine Modification for PDI or other services,” says Josh Butler, founder and CEO of FlowBelow. “Fleet owners that utilize the services provided by Fontaine will be able to enjoy the convenience and affordability of having FlowBelow products installed on their new equipment before taking delivery.”
Fontaine Modification will make FlowBelow installations available at all seven of its modification centers across the U.S. The system will fit nearly any tractor, regardless of manufacturer, and can be retrofitted on most vehicles currently in use. It is available in custom colors and finish to match the truck.
