AIRS DUNNAGE BAGS ^HOT^
Inflatable air dunnage bags are a protective packaging solution designed to provide load stabilization and bracing support during transit. Easy-to-install and 100% recyclable, air dunnage bags can substantially reduce or eliminate damaged product.
AIRS DUNNAGE BAGS
Poly woven air dunnage bags are constructed of woven polypropylene tapes and have been certified compliant by the Association of American Railroads (AAR). These waterproof bags come in all industry-standard lengths and feature simple inflation as well as walkaway deflation. Poly woven dunnage bags are easier to handle vs. paper air bags because they are 60% lighter and have single-ply construction that allows for a greater pack-out.
We offer dunnage bag inflator tools for kraft and poly air dunnage bags. Inflators come equipped with built-in gauges to prevent overfilling. Each inflator tool is compatible with most warehouse air compressors.
An air dunnage bag is a load securement product used to stabilize cargo in transit and prevent product damage. A paper dunnage bag is constructed of 2, 4, 6, or 8 plies (layers) of paper and a polyethylene bladder. A poly dunnage bag is made of woven polypropylene tapes and a polyethylene bladder. As air is injected into the plastic bladder the bag expands exerting an outward force. Cost-efficient air dunnage bags can be used in rail cars, intermodal containers, sea containers, and dry van trailers.
Each day valuable products are damaged or destroyed in transit due to shifting. Dunnage bags serve to reduce or eliminate product damage by stabilizing loads as they travel over the road, rail or ocean. Dunnage bags fill voids, brace loads, and absorb vibrations, protecting valuable cargo from damage. Dunnage bags are a highly effective, cost efficient form of product protection.
Yes, dunnage bags can burst due to over-inflation. In addition, they can burst due to insufficient strength or violent shifting during transit. Please make sure you are using a dunnage bag that is rated for the mode of transit (truck, rail, ocean) and load.
Yes, you can reuse your dunnage bags for all non-rail applications in the USA. However, we do not guarantee our products after the first use. It is imperative to inspect your dunnage bags after each use.
Air bags are supplemental protection and are designed to work best in combination with seat belts. Both frontal and side-impact air bags are generally designed to deploy in moderate to severe crashes and may deploy in even a minor crash.
Vehicles can be equipped with both front and side air bags (SABs). Frontal air bags have been standard equipment in all passenger cars since model year 1998 and in all SUVs, pickups and vans since model year 1999. SABs are being offered as standard or optional equipment on many new passenger vehicles.
Side-impact air bags inflate even more quickly since there is less space between the driver or passengers and the striking object, whether the interior of the vehicle, another vehicle, a tree, or a pole.
You count on your air bag to protect you and others in your vehicle in the event of a crash. If your vehicle is equipped with a counterfeit air bag, there is cause for concern. Counterfeit air bags have been shown to consistently malfunction in ways that range from non-deployment to the expulsion of metal shrapnel during deployment.
Consumers whose vehicles have been in a crash and who have replaced their air bags by a repair shop that is not part of a new car dealership within the past three years or who have purchased a replacement air bag online should contact the call center established by their auto manufacturer to have their vehicle inspected at their own expense and their air bag replaced if necessary. The responsibility for replacing a counterfeit air bag will vary depending on the circumstances around the original installation of the part.
The activation of an air bag in a crash is dependent on several important factors including: the characteristics of the crash (e.g., speed, other vehicles involved, impact direction); the individual vehicle air bag system's design strategy; and the crash sensor locations. Air bags are not intended to deploy in all crashes. There may be circumstances when an air bag does not deploy. Some possible examples follow:
Frontal air bags are generally designed to deploy in "moderate to severe" frontal or near-frontal crashes, which are defined as crashes that are equivalent to hitting a solid, fixed barrier at 8 to 14 mph or higher. (This would be equivalent to striking a parked car of similar size at about 16 to 28 mph or higher.)
Frontal air bags have come a long way since they first appeared in the 1980s. Although those older air bags saved thousands of lives, they deployed the same way for every driver and passenger, causing injury and in some rare cases even death to children, small adults, and any unbelted occupants positioned too close to the air bag as it deployed. Today's advanced frontal air bags are better able to protect drivers and front seat passengers by using sophisticated sensing systems to determine whether, when and how much to deploy.
West Coast Supplies can match dunnage bags to fit for bracing trailer loads to avoid damage related to shifting loads and loss due to theft. The see through design is perfect for homeland security sensitive operations.
The inflator is easily mounted to the forklift and works off of the forklift battery. No more having to bring hoses from the dock to the front of the trailer in order to fill your dunnage bags. You can drop the pallets off at the front of the trailer and fill the bags then and there with the new inflator. This saves time and labor costs as well as increases safety.
Introduced around 1970, dunnage bags provide convenient and cost-effective cargo stabilization in ISO sea containers, closed railcars, trucks, and oceangoing vessels. As improperly secured cargo is a safety hazard, dunnage bags improve road safety. According to the European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport, "up to 25% of accidents involving trucks can be attributable to inadequate cargo securing".
Dunnage airbags consist of closed chambers made from an elastic film filled with air. These are placed in the void between the cargo to stabilize, secure, and protect it during transportation. The quantity of inflation air may be varied in accordance with the particular properties and requirements of the package contents.
