Air Pallets - Warehouse Equipment for Moving Loads of
Fixed Size and Shape
is a very useful addition to our range of aluminum transporters - the Air Pallet Transporter.
These air pallets are particularly suitable for use as warehouse
equipment or in other similar type facilities.
Air Pallets are ideal for situations that require heavy load moving of
standard shapes and sizes. They are equipped with a push handle assembly at the
rear which allows the operator tighter control of the
operational settings. The push handle assembly houses twin handlebar
grips, trigger switch to start and stop operation, main air inlet from
shop air supply, and air balancing valves to ensure that all air bearings
are receiving the correct amount of air in relation to the weight of the
load and the condition of the floor on which the air pallet is operating.
Air pallets have a low profile of around 2+ inches,
and are easily moved on a thin
film of air that is created when the air bearings are powered by
regular compressed shop air. Omni-directional control is a breeze for
just one person (for loads of up to 3 tons) via the handlebars on the push assembly. Air is directed
to the air bearings via a trigger switch set just below one of the
handles. What could be easier for pallet handling?
Air pallets are able to move heavy loads from just 500
pounds to 20 tons and beyond, are available in many width
sizes - starting around 3ft. - and are easily customized to suit
the customer's specifications - ranging from the footprint size of the
pallet, to a pick and lift air pallet that is able to lift its load
vertically before floating it off to its
destination. The pick and lift system is especially useful if the
customer is using low profile air pallets to hold the load, instead of
setting the load directly on the air pallet. For repetitive movements of
same size loads within a factory or warehouse facility, these air
pallets are likely to provide an ideal solution to your heavy load
moving equipment needs.
Warehouse Equipment: When used for this
purpose, these air pallets really do make short work of repetitive load
movements of fixed size loads. Simply drop the load onto the air pallet,
pull the air activation trigger and whisk the load of to its
destination. All you need is an air supply line.
Note: Due to the location
of the push handle assembly, it is not advisable to carry loads that
require an overhang of the air pallet. Overhangs are not
usually recommended, but where there are no alternatives we would
recommend checking out our regular
