Do you know that the air pads LEVITANS allow to move very heavy loads, or delicate goods, or both heavy and delicate ones, with a maximum of safety?
If you want to design an exhibition where one ore more of the following conditions exist:
· moving valuable or precious goods, or heavy, large, fragile, tall ones (in a word 'difficult'...)
· no way of entering with a suitable lifting equipment
· no sufficient space for handling
· precious floors or with unsufficient bearing capacity
The LEVITANS air pad offers:
· manual handling of objects up to 10 tons and more
· assisted handling with electric or pneumatic pusher
· standard equipment, such as transpallets, or special ones for almost any type of horizontal handling
· pads permanently fitted to the charge for frequent movements
· many air pads under large objects to obtain the best load distribution
· maximum safety for very tall objects: the pad raises of only one centimeter, no falls possible
· lateral movements and rotations on location for the best use of available space
· protection of your floors, even if precious: floor polishing will be preserved!
· and much other you wouldn't even imagine...
The air pad technique is an industrial standard from over 20 years in developed countries.
LEVITANS has implemented a complete series of air pads for very different applications. Thousands of installations are operating in all industrial activities.
Principle of the air pad
Of simple use
The LEVITANS air pad relies on the creation of an air film between the soil and the pad, that may be obtained with a normal air compressor. The friction is virtually reduced to zero and the load may be moved with minimal effort.
Owing to the cooperation of an inflatable rubber lip and of a pneumatic hinge, used as the suspension, the air pad LEVITANS evolves easily over the floor ondulations.
The air pad moves in every direction. It allows lateral movements and rotations on location with a maximum of ease: loads are positioned fast and precise.
It raises the safety...
Owing to its ease of use, the LEVITANS air pad does not require skilled personnel. It's ease in any movement allows the manipulation of delicate or precious goods with a maximum of safety. Handling time is appreciably reduced: exhibitions might change their configuration in a virtually continuous way.
...with no maintenance
The air pad LEVITANS requires no planned maintenance operations: there is no consumption for a correct installation. Replacement parts, in case of accident, are small and with low cost.
It protects your floors...
The best results of LEVITANS system is obtained on a flat non porous surface.
Air pad supports
However, as the bearing pressure is limited, the LEVITANS pad may move on poorly resistant floors,
and avoids the damages found with systems on wheels: the floor is preserved.
...and your installations
LEVITANS air pad is used for moving very heavy objects with safety (it lifts up never more than 20 mm). So no heavy lifting equipment will be required, and no consequent modifications of the building's structure.
From space... to the cultural heritage?
