Boost productivity while lowering costs with powerful air caster technology for industrial rigging and hoisting.

Heavey Loud Movement

A 25,000-lb. bearing housing is floated outside a warehouse on air skids before being hoisted onto a flatbed trailer.

Air Bearing Rigging Equipment for Heavy Load Movement

For over 40 years, Airfloat has been providing innovative, cost-efficient solutions to complex lifting and transportation challenges faced by heavy industry. Whether you’re a manufacturer looking to move a 35-ton boring mill or a power plant operator replacing a 47-ton feedwater heater (or anything in between), Airfloat has a heavy load movement solution for you.

Airfloat air skids and air platforms can be used in conjunction with mobile cranes for complex indoor-to-outdoor (or vice versa) moves. Or skip the costly, hazardous crane altogether and perform the entire move at ground level with air bearings.

From design and fabrication to assembly and maintenance, Airfloat delivers powerful rigging and hoisting solutions that are easy and safe to implement—just one pound of force is required to move 1,000 pounds of weight. When you want the safest, most ergonomically correct way to move and position heavy loads—regardless of industry—you want Airfloat’s air bearing technology.
