Airfloat Air Bearing Skids (or air castors) are a versatile pneumatic/air support device. The air skids allow the safe, almost frictionless movement of heavy loads and large equipment. Underneath the strong steel load 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 600 mm single air skid can support loads of up to 5,680 kg. Often these are supplied in a four piece kit, to be located under the corners of the load platform. This will provide a maximum capacity of 22,720 kg.
