Dunnage Bags

Dunnage Air Bag Supplies

Damaged product can lead to lost revenue, angry customers, a marred reputation, and more. Dunnage bags can help you avoid these outcomes by providing reliable cargo securement and protection.

These cost-effective products are placed in the gaps between boxes, pallets, etc., then inflated to fill the space. This provides shock / vibration absorption and holds the items in place.

They can be placed both crosswise and lengthwise - since they are made of elastic material, dunnage bags are able to fill many different space sizes with ease. Crosswise placement is ideal for vibration protection, while lengthwise placement is better for impact cushioning.

Why Choose Dunnage Over Other Forms of Cargo Securement?

Dunnage air bags are less expensive than many other products used for the same purpose. They are easy to store and transport, and are incredibly versatile - they can be used with almost any type of cargo, even a bulkhead.

Designed for quick placement, air bags are lightweight and inflate/deflate quickly (the average inflation time on our poly-woven bags is 30 seconds or less!).
