Machinery Skates Allow You to Transport Heavy Equipment With Ease
Moving equipment from one place to another as expeditiously as possible is essential to the success of any warehousing operation. Relying on conventional movers or rollers that aren’t designed and constructed for use in a warehouse environment will slow down the process and pose a safety hazard to your workforce.
Machinery skates present a practical, safe alternative for transporting equipment around your facility. These skates feature wide cylindrical rollers designed to accommodate loads weighing thousands of pounds. Larger rollers keep the machinery skate from digging into softer surfaces, which prevents scraping and gouging and enables fast, efficient movement.
Machinery skates are available with anywhere from eight to 16 rollers — the more rollers the skates contain, the better suited it is to handle heavier loads.
The wheels are coated with anti-friction material that allows them to roll smoothly over virtually any type of surface. The top of the skate features a flat rubberized material that prevents the equipment or machine it’s transporting from slipping off.
