AeroFlow Design and Product Features:
What type of
plastic does AeroFlow use?
The plastic we use is Implex Plus manufactured by Atoglas North America. Implex impact acrylic sheet combines the UV stability and other physical properties of standard acrylic sheet with impact strength that is SIX TIMES greater than standard acrylic.
Implex sheet is suitable for outdoor and indoor applications where impact strength is critical. IMPLEX Impact Acrylic sheet offers impact resistance along with excellent weatherability, clarity and processing characteristics. IMPLEX sheet combines the well known weatherability of Acrylic with proprietary impact resistant chemistry, producing a tough clear material. These properties along with outstanding thermoforming characteristics provide a superior material for today's more demanding applications.
IMPLEX sheet incorporates proprietary technology that results in significantly greater toughness than standard Acrylic sheet. IMPLEX sheet resist hazing, surface dullness and progressive yellowing.

Yes, our screens are D.O.T approved. We stamp each screen with D.O.T. and all relevant numbers, which is important if you live in a state with vehicle registration inspections.
Why do AeroFlow screens work better than others?
We make screens that offer more protection with less buffeting by utilizing these basic design concepts:
Compound vs. Simple Curves - We use compound curves in our designs to add strength and create a more aerodynamic shape to better control the airflow. For instance, an egg shape is more aerodynamic than a flat or can shape.
Airfoils & Laminar Flow - Our definition of Laminar Flow is different than the technical definition of Laminar Flow. We do this to help the customer understand how and why our windscreens work.
Our definition of Laminar Flow is: Air "sticking" to the frontside and the backside of the windscreen, with slower moving air on one side & faster on the other. When this air connects, it smoothes out the air leaving the top of the screen. This smooth airflow hits the lip at the top of the screen and kicks it 4-6" higher than a screen without this design. This lip and the screen has to be designed perfectly for this to happen. Other screens may have this lip but if it is not engineered to work with the rest of the screen it will not have the same results.
Laminar Flow Plates attach under the windscreen, usually up against the dash. The increased air intakes at the bottom of the screen allows more air flow under the AeroScreen and up the dash. The Laminar Flow Plate controls this airflow and attaches it to the backside of the AeroScreen. The airflow then follows the AeroScreens contours to the top of the AeroScreen where it merges with the airflow from the front. This combined airflow smoothes out the air leaving the top of the screen, which, in turn, is pushed up and over the driver and passenger.
Use of this concept allows us to design an air intake between the body (lower half) and windscreen (upper half.) The intake relieves back pressure and allows Laminar Airflow. The body is designed to direct air down and away from the bike. These solutions are called Half Fairings and provide more coverage than a windscreen, but not full fairing / touring comfort, which is why we have designed AeroGards.
AeroGards (also know as Fairing Lowers) are designed to direct air away from the legs and torso that comes around the gas tank. By redirecting that air they also help maintain the integrity of the fairing's envelope of protection, in some cases they nearly double the effectiveness. While designed to work in conjunction with our fairings they should improve the performance of any larger than stock screen.
Dual-Lok (TM) is an industrial strength
interlocking fastening system made by 3M (TM). Dual-Lok attaches
to your bike or headlight with an adhesive backing safe for
motorcycle/automotive applications. Each piece has mushroom
shaped stems which interlock together to form a strong secure
hold. An audible "snap" is heard once Dual-Lok is engaged,
taking the product off is just as easy. Dual-Lok circles,
squares or strips are available from AeroFlow, please call us to
place an order.
*Remember - When you apply an adhesive backed fasteners, the bonding surface must be clean, dry and free of contaminates. Rubbing down the fastener after application will improve contact.
Referred to as Attachments Per Inch, or A.P.I., which determines the holding power and ease of disengaging the Dual-Lok. In most applications we mate two different densities of Dual-Lok, 400 API to 250 API. We feel that the 400 API mated to the 250 API combines the best holding capability while it allows the Dual-Lok to be separated with the least wear on the stems and hemispheres.
Please Note: Dual-Lok is not a warranty item. The mounting surface must be completely clean for Dual-Lok to adhere correctly. If the mounting surface is cleaned properly the Dual-Lok will stick. Dual-Lok should be replaced every 12-18 months, depending upon wear and usage.
The smoke color is part of the plastic. It
is not painted on or a film tint, so you do not have to worry
about the smoke color peeling or scratching. The plastic is dark
black, not brown or gray. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being opaque,
it would rate a 8 1/2".

Why doesn't AeroFlow offer a shopping cart with exact shipping
Because AeroFlow does it the old-fashioned way, by hand, with real customer-service people who review, process and package each order individually. We want to make sure your order is correct and packaged in the most efficient way possible to save you money and reduce costly mistakes.
Most shopping carts automatically calculate and instantly charge for product & shipping, but do not always properly adjust shipping costs for larger box-sizes requiring dimensional weights, or allow for multiple-item shipments, or for any other variables your order requires. You select the products, and you are charged immediately. Your order gets shipped. Then if your order isn't correct for any reason, exchanges or returns have to be handled, adjustments to your credit card made. Not the way AeroFlow would like your order experience with us to be handled.
By reviewing and packaging your order before processing your charges, we can do our best to make sure it's correct. Any questions or concerns regarding product selection or shipping methods and cost can be addressed beforehand. We will package your order using the most cost-efficient box sizes possible, combine multiple-product orders when possible, then calculate an exact shipping cost, based upon the actual package size, weight, and shipping method requested. Then, after your order is packaged and ready for shipment, we will charge your credit card.
We will be happy to provide an exact shipping cost quote or estimated time of arrival or any other information. Give us a call or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Standard shipping method is UPS Ground, unless another service is requested.
