  For all the hazards faced by sensitive and delicate equipment in the field, shock and vibration   during transport causes some of the most serious and costly damage—amounting to millions of   dollars each year.

  Hardigg’s SKID-MATE® cushions offer a simple and cost-effective solution. Designed to mount   directly on pallet bases with a 5/16" – 18 UNC bolt threaded into the molded-in insert, these   air - dampened cushions provide maximum protection against shock and vibration with minimum   size and weight—taking the place of wood skid runners and eliminating the need for expensive air   - ride trucks. They can accommodate any load—from custom and fabricated pallets to   heavy- duty pallet loads for any type of industrial, commercial, or military cargo. Skid-Mates are   color-coded by load range, and also permit four-way pallet entry, making loading and unloading   easy.

  The SKID-MATE+PLUS® system adds a rugged 1-1/8” thick polyethylene spacer disc to the   Skid- Mate cushion, which increases the total height to 4”. This extra height allows your pallet   - loaded freight to accept most pallet jacks worldwide.
