What are Pipe Rigging Rollers?

Pipe rigging rollers, also known as pipe rollers or pipe skates, are specialized tools used in rigging and material handling operations involving pipes. They are designed to facilitate the movement, positioning, and installation of pipes in various industries, including construction, oil and gas, manufacturing, and more. They typically consist of a sturdy frame or base with one or more rollers or wheels mounted on it. These rollers are specifically designed to support the weight of pipes and provide a smooth and low-friction surface for easy movement.

What are some of the common types of pipe rigging rollers?

Heavy-Duty Rollers:

Engineered to withstand heavy loads and harsh environments, these pipe rigging rollers are ideal for lifting and moving large pipes with ease. They feature robust construction, precision bearings, and a high load capacity to ensure efficient and safe rigging operations.

Adjustable Rollers:

Offering flexibility and adaptability, adjustable pipe rigging rollers enable easy customization according to your specific pipe sizes. These rollers provide secure and stable support, minimizing the risk of pipe slippage during rigging tasks. Their adjustable nature makes them great for environments that require flexibility.

Polyurethane Rollers:

Designed for delicate or coated pipes, our polyurethane pipe rigging rollers offer superior protection against scratches and damages. The non-marking polyurethane surface ensures optimal grip without leaving any residue, making them ideal for handling sensitive pipes without compromising their integrity.

Swivel Rollers:

Swivel rigging rollers feature a rotating mechanism, allowing for enhanced maneuverability and turning of pipes during rigging operations. These rollers are specifically engineered to support the weight of pipes and provide a smooth surface for controlled movement.

Low Profile Rollers:

Low-profile rigging rollers are designed for use in tight spaces or confined areas where there is limited clearance. They have a compact design and a reduced height to maneuver pipes in challenging environments.

Beam Clamp Rollers:

Used typically in industrial settings, beam clamp rollers are used where the movement of heavy loads along beams or tracks is required. Beam clamp rigging rollers consist of a sturdy frame with one or more rollers or wheels mounted on it. Their smooth rolling design allows controlled movements of suspended loads on tracks.

What are the benefits to having pipe rigging rollers?

Efficiency and Productivity:

 They greatly enhance efficiency by reducing manual effort and labor required for moving and positioning pipes. They provide a smooth and low-friction rolling surface. This saves time and boosts productivity while allowing for easier and faster transportation of pipes.


Using pipe skates promotes safety during pipe handling. They are specifically designed to support the weight of pipes and distribute the load evenly, reducing the risk of strain or injury to workers. They provide stability and prevent slippage, minimizing the chances of accidents or pipe damage during rigging operations.

Precise Positioning:

Pipe skates allow for precise positioning and alignment of pipes during installation or assembly. They provide controlled movement, enabling workers to accurately place pipes in the desired location and adjust their position as needed. This ensures proper fit and alignment with other components or structures.


Pipe skates are available in various sizes and load capacities, making them suitable for a wide range of pipe diameters and weights. This versatility allows you to handle different types of pipes, whether they are made of steel, plastic, or concrete.

Reduced Pipe Damage:

The smooth rolling surface of pipe skates minimizes friction and abrasion, reducing the likelihood of scratches, dents, or coating damage to the pipes. This is particularly important when handling pipes with delicate surfaces or protective coatings, ensuring their integrity and preserving their quality.


Pipe skates offer increased maneuverability, allowing for easy movement of pipes in different directions, including horizontal, vertical, and angular adjustments. This flexibility is beneficial in navigating tight spaces or around obstacles, providing greater control during rigging operations.
