Lift-Glide Air Skids

Lower costs and enhance safety by meeting load movement challenges head-on with easily integrated Lift Glide Air Skids.

Break free from the limitations of your dollies and carts without a significant capital investment. Airfloat’s completely redesigned Lift-Glide Air Skids can easily be retrofitted to existing wheeled units or designed into new equipment, allowing you to utilize existing equipment to move loads over long distances. Then, when greater maneuverability is needed or the load weight becomes too heavy to push, the air casters can be engaged.

How Lift Glide Air Skids Work

Lift Glide Diagram

Compression springs keep the lift-glide air skids retracted off the floor
When the air spring is engaged, the air skid extends down to lift wheels off the floor
Air is turned on to the air casters to allow for near friction-free movement
