Utility Platforms

Airfloat Utility Platforms allow operators to efficiently move heavy loads or pallets up to 12,000 lbs with little force needed. Using Air Caster technology, the Utility Platform provides near friction-free, omnidirectional movement – making them the superior alternative to wheeled carts and forklifts. The platforms also feature a retractable guide wheel to aid in the maneuvering of heavy loads.

Quality
Materials
Our Air Casters only utilize a 100% urethane diaphragm design with superior wear resistance for moving loads effortlessly.
Slide-Out Air Casters
Air Skids can be serviced without removing the load, using the slide-out steel trays design.

Transport heavy loads up to 12,000 due to the high efficiency of our air caster technology.
The Technology of Air

We exist to create material handling solutions for moving and positioning heavy and difficult to position loads with low friction, omnidirectional movement. The Air Caster is a pneumatic device that forms a lubricating film of air between the load and floor surface, similar in principle to a hovercraft or an air hockey table. We provide material handling products and solutions for heavy loads when frictionless, omnidirectional movement is critical.

Frequent Questions
Will air casters work on my floor?

Many people believe a perfect floor, polished to a mirror finish, is required in order to use air caster technology. Most Airfloat equipment is designed to operate on machine-troweled concrete. However, the floor does need to be reasonably flat and level. Call 800-888-0018 today to speak with an application engineer to discuss if your floors are up to par for air caster technology to function efficiently.

What are the air requirements?

Most plant air systems and adequate pressure (usually over 80 psi) for air caster technology. However, make sure the airflow is strong enough for the equipment you’re looking into. The required air consumption for the efficient operation of air casters is 3 SCFM per foot of air bearing perimeter.

In what sizes are Airfloat air skids available?

Airfloat Air Skids range in size from 10 inches to 54 inches, with single-skid capacity from 500 pounds to 60,000 pounds per skid. Custom sizes are also available.
