Custom systems can be designed to move up to 20,000 lbs. and are ideal for lifting, moving and positioning heavy equipment and industrial machinery.
In our example we will use four 24 x 24 quads to move a 10,000 lb. load.
Load capacity is highest on very smooth floors and decreases with increasing floor roughness. As demonstrated by the side chart, the system can easily move 10,000 lbs. on a highly finished sealed concrete floor but might only move 600 lbs. on tightly rolled asphalt.
Floor surfaces can be temporarily improved by laying down a sheet of paper, plastic film, masonite, sheet metal or similar nonporous materials. These materials are usually available at home supply stores or can be ordered through Airsled. When planning frequent moves over a poor floor surface, you could apply an industrial grade floor coating on the floor to make the move easier.
Airsled air moving equipment systems are designed so most loads can cross 3/4″ cracks on a smooth floor at the maximum rated load capacity. Lighter loads can negotiate wider cracks and gaps. Wide cracks and gratings can be bridged with a layer of sheet metal. When the load is pushing the limits of capacity, cracks are more difficult to move across.
