Lifting Gear Hire Introduces Air Skates

Lifting Gear Hire Corporation (LGH) has air skate systems available for immediate rental.

Air skates move heavy loads on a thin cushion of air and are available in sets of either four or six. Since air skates lower the coefficient of friction near 1%, one person can typically move 5,000 lbs. on a smooth and flat floor. The air skate system utilizes a manifold that individually controls the air flow to each specially designed air skid, helping the load travel slowly and evenly.
