Airfloat Air Bearing Skids (or “air castors”) are a versatile pneumatic/air support device. These provide a safe, near frictionless movement of heavy loads and large equipment. Underneath the heavy duty steel load, the support platform is a durable and flexible urethane diaphragm that is inflated using compressed air. This air inflates the diaphragm, passing through the many small holes, which enables the load to float on a thin film of air.
The Airfloat 1200 mm air skid has a massive load capacity of 23,864 kg. These may be purchased as a single unit or in a set of 4 skids giving a combined capacity of 95,000 kg.
