Airfloat Air Skid systems allow for the safe, nearly frictionless movement of large loads or machinery. Air skids come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are durable, lightweight and built for years of trouble-free operation. Airfloat systems are designed to compete – on price and performance – with systems and solutions that are far less flexible, including heavy-duty casters and rollers.

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.

New Controller Design

Our Air Skid controller has been re-imagined, allowing it to be easily carried during operation and flexibility with six independent flow controls.
