Pelican Pallet Skid Advantages

The SKID MATE is an air dampened cushioning device that provides a fast, cost-effective, and durable customized solution to protect sensitive products from shock and vibration. The SKID-MATE can be easily mounted on a crate or pallet base, creating an air-ride cushion, which takes the place of hardwood skid runners, eliminating the need for expensive air-ride trucks. Additional Pelican Skid-Mate shock absorbing benefits include:
  • Tough and durable
  • Shock resistant
  • Chemical resistant
  • Protects during loading/unloading
  • Extreme hi and low-temperature usage
  • Eliminates the need for expensive air ride vans
  • Recyclable

Skid Mates Provide Safe & Reliable Pallet Cushions for Moving Your Loaded Pallets

Skid-Mates are tough and durable and can endure 3000 feet (914 meters) of dragging over concrete and floor joints. Skid-Mates can perform under extreme temperatures, from -40°F to 130°F (-40°C to 54°C).  Because Skid-Mates are made of polyethylene, a chemically inert material, they are chemical resistant, environmentally friendly, reusable, and recyclable.

The Pelican Skid-Mate is designed to mount directly to a pallet’s base with a 5/16" 18 UNC bolt.
