Air deflectors are used in transportation to reduce wind resistance for vehicles. They can be seen atop semi-trucks and other long-haul vehicles, and feature a curved profile to combat the constantly changing wind direction and provide better road handling. These improved aerodynamics lead to a significant increase in fuel mileage, and thus greater cost savings. Depending on the vehicle model, air deflectors can be made in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and can be placed in various locations.
Air deflectors are typically made from ABS, polycarbonate or acrylic sheet, which are cost effective, light weight, and available in a range of colors and textures. The materials are typically cut, CNC routed, and then vacuum formed for a perfect fit, providing efficiency and improved aesthetics.
