Airfloat Air Bearing Skids
(or “air castors”) are a versatile pneumatic/air support device. These allow
the safe, near frictionless movement of heavy loads and large equipment.
Underneath the sturdy support platform is
a durable and flexible urethane diaphragm which
is inflated using compressed air. This air inflates the diaphragm, passing
through the many small holes, which raises the platform of the floor, enabling the
load to float on a thin film of air.
The 425 mm single air skid
has a maximum capacity of 2,840 kg.
These are available as a single unit or combined in a kit of 4 unit, giving a
combined capacity of 11,360 kg.
