Air Bearing Movers

Engineering the Heavy Move:

Air Caster™ Air Bearing Load-movers, LoadLifters

The Air Caster™ air bearing mover is a structural load-carrying frame with a single air bearing. Normally used in sets of four or more, movers powered by air bearings give easy, friction-free movement of heavy loads.

As individual units, Air Caster™ movers use air bearings to provide maximum versatility for transporting loads of various widths and lengths. The movers are spaced apart to support and carry the load. Available in a wide range of capacities, these units are commonly used by maintenance departments and riggers and are sometimes referred to as air skids or air skates.
