    It's not a hoverboard - but it's just as cool!

    When someone mentions "skating on air", you might think of recent developments in hoverboard technology or how Marty McFly would have been getting around this year. However, we'd like to put a different spin on this trick - a much more practical one!

    If you've ever had to refit a production facility and move ovens, printers or corrugators that weigh many, many tonnes - you'll be very accustomed to the idea of dollies. However, these simple sets of wheels can often be difficult to use and hard to direct. With Air Skates you can move hefty machines with minimal effort, in any direction you like and without damaging flooring.

    In fact, here's a video to show you just how easy the job can be! See how factory relocation company KMB Group made use of two sets of air skates to move a 15-tonne thermo-forming food packaging machine, without marking or damaging a freshly coated epoxy floor!

    With 15 tonne and 30 tonne options available, you can move even the heaviest pieces of equipment with ease. What does this mean for you? Safer factory fitouts and less machine downtime. Now that sounds like a recipe for success!
