Welcome to the world's official Airtab Website.
Airtabs are powerful vortex generators that reduce vehicle aerodynamic drag, save fuel, and improve vehicle safety by improving stability and mirror visibility in rain or snow. Airtabs are usable and applicable to a wide range of vehcles including trucks, tractor trailers, RVs, coach,bus, van or any square backed vehicle or trailer.
Airtabs provide users with the following benefits:
FUEL ECONOMY: 2-5% range
SAFETY: Airtabs drastically alter the airflows at the vehicles rear and help stabilize the vehicle or trailer, especially in gusty and/or cross wind conditions. This improves handling quality, reduces driver stress and fatigue and reduces adjacent lane incursions. Airtabs increase vehicle safety by improving mirror visibility in rain or snow yielding safer lane changes in bad weather.
LOW COST: Rapid ROI (less than 60 days for fully equipped long haul tractor and trailer) Fleet pricing available.
MAINTENANCE: No maintenance or special training is required.
RAPID INSTALL: Usually 1 man-hour per unit. Minimum vehicle downtime and no special equipment needed.
OPERATIONAL IMPACT: None
Fuel economy improvements are achieved by vehicle aerodynamic drag reduction at two key locations; the tractor trailer gap and the rear facing surface of any square backed truck, trailer, RV, coach, bus or van.
Airtabs improve vehicle stability and safety by altering the airflow patterns at the vehicle's rear. The large random swirls at the rear doors are replaced by dozens of small, vigorous, "stream-wise" counter rotaing vortexes that trail several feet behind the vehicle. This airflow alteration improves vehicle stability, improves handling quality in gusty winds, reduces driver workload, stress and fatigue and reduces the number a adjacent lane incursions.
Airtabs improve vehicle safety through spray suppression improving mirror visibility in rain or snow. This delivers safer vehicle lane changes as well as improving the visibility of other road users.
Airtabs reduce snow (and weight) and road grime accumulation at the vehicle rear. Cleaning costs are reduced and vehicle safety is improved by keeping conspicuity tape and brake/tail/running lights more visible.
Airtabs are a proven technology. Airtabs are an award winning, effective, low cost, rapid ROI, low weight, no maintenance product that do far more than save fuel. Airtabs help to make large vehicles and trailers safer to drive in all weather conditions.
