Andersen Flaps expanded its Eco-flaps splash guard line with the addition of 27- and 36-in. long splash guards. The new lengths come with the improved Eco-flaps design for an even more aerodynamic splash guard, said the company. Andersen Flaps added that the wide horizontal ribs have been removed to further reduce wind resistance and improve fuel efficiency. Eco-flaps molded, aerodynamic channels allow air and water to easily move through the flap surface with minimal drag to improve fuel economy.
After moving through Eco-flaps channels, air and water flow reaches a dead-air zone on the back surface of the guard where the water falls to the road surface. This flow pattern reduces excessive road spray when compared to traditional mud flap designs, said the manufacturer. In addition to reducing drag, the design directs water spray to the pavement rather than into passing or trailing vehicle’s lines-of-sight. Therefore, the Eco-flaps design plays a critical role in improving safety for both truck drivers and motorists, according to Andersen Flaps.
Eco-flaps are manufactured with durable, high-impact nylon to withstand extreme conditions.
The improved Eco-flaps design is available in 24×24-, 24×27-, 24×30- and 24×36-in. splash guards.
