Air Dunnage Bags
Protect Your Valuable Cargo with Cost Effective Inflatable Dunnage Bags
AAAKA PLASTIC inflatable dunnage bags are the logical answer to your shipping damage expense. They have an outstanding load stabilizing capacity, withstanding tons of pressure and resistance to load shifting. The bags are constructed of multiple layers of high strength extensible Kraft paper and the outer ply of is coated with polyethylene to resist moisture (coating is optional on our four ply bag). The inner liner is constructed of co extruded polyethylene film for added protection against loss of air pressure. Tough, dependable, and easy to inflate, these dunnage bags are convenient way to protect your cargo.
The most important component to saving money is saving time. Dunnage Air Bags can save you both. Dunnage bags are easier and less expensive to install than wood bracing because there's no carpentry, construction or teardown time. These lightweight, easy to position bags inflate easily and quickly. There are no special storage requirements or repairs to the bag, you simply deflate and throw them away. Rubber dunnage must be carefully deflated, removed, folded and returned after each shipment. If it's lost or damaged, it means additional expense. Protect your cargo with a strong dependable cushion of air with Dunnage Bags.
What are Dunnage Air Bags?
Dunnage Air Bags are paper bags, constructed of paper, designed with an inflatable internal Polyethylene Bladder. They are an innovative and simple blocking and bracing tool.
What are they used for?
Dunnage Air Bags are used to restrain movement of cargo loads in trucks, overseas containers, or railcars. They fill voids, brace loads, absorb vibrations, and protect cargo from in-transit damage, better than any other form of bracing ("dunnaging") What are the most common causes of freight damage? - The most common causes of freight damage are related to freight falling forward to backward, and double and triple decked skids bouncing in transit.
What are the effects of shifting loads and damaged freight?
Customers are unhappy. Valuable time is wasted putting the damaged freight back together at destination terminals. The necessity for "Re's" (Recouping, Restacking, Re-banding, Re-shrink -wrapping, and Re-working the load) adversely affect dock production and strain customer relations .
How has cargo been braced in the past?
Loads have been braced using a combination of empty pallets, 2 x 4's, and empty cardboard cartons. Shipments which included fragile cargo as part of the overall load necessitated stair-stepping standard freight back-to or away-from the fragile freight.
How do I determine what size Dunnage Air Bag to use?
1. Measure void between cargo 2. Measure distance from floor to top of load 3. Measure the length of the pallets or whatever you are trying to restrain.
What can be done to utilize Dunnage Bags if void exceeds maximum recommended void?
Answer: Should this situation exist, reduce unusually large voids with old pallets, corrugated, or some type of void filler
Do Dunnage Bags require any type of protection?
To maintain product integrity, it is very important to place corrugated or some type of smooth surface on either side of the Dunnage Bag to protect it from rough edges (wooden crates, pallets, or anything sharp).
What type of equipment is necessary to inflate Dunnage Bags?
1. Compressed air from an air compressor 2. Inflator tool
What type of Inflator Equipment is available?
1. Quick fill snap on inflator 2. Quick fill combination inflator tool 3. Rapid fill inflator tool 4. Air compressor 5. Hose and reel
Can Dunnage Bags be damaged during filling?
Dunnage Bags can be cold burned and can burst with over-inflation. Each bag has a label located near the valve with recommended pressure. If inflation check points are followed, it will eliminate these problems.
Why use Dunnage Air Bags instead of our competitors products?
1. The Ride-Rite bag is the oldest in the market. Years have been spent improving it. 2. Only top quality materials are used, and every 12th bag off the assembly line or 8% is physically tested to ensure top quality. 3. The manufacturing process is integrated to ensure our competitiveness in the market place.
Is a re-usable bag available?
Answer: Yes, however, our concern with selling a re-usable bag is as follows: 1. We do not have any control over how a bag is used, therefore, we cannot guarantee how many times it can be used. 2. The re-usable air bag costs more. Most customers do not have enough control to get the bags returned, thus they pay for a bag to re-use that they do not get to re-use. Many times bags are punctured to release the air, making them unusable. We have a label available for the air bags which reads "Re-usable Bag DO NOT Puncture."
