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 heavy duty, 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 in the diaphragm, which enables the load to float
on a thin film of air.
The 500 mm single air skid
has a load capacity of 3,750 kg. Sitecraft can supply these as a single unit or
in a four piece kit. This will provide ca combined load capacity of 15,000 kg.
