In transport, cargo damage is caused by the forward or backward collisions between goods. Dunnage bags prevent cargo damage by bracing loads both laterally and lengthwise.
Once inserted, the Bates Cargo Pak dunnage bags are inflated by compressed air. The inflated bags wedge the load against other pallets or the outside walls of the container.
The patented valve system of the Bates dunnage bag allows for extremely fast inflation and deflation. The valve can be turned to 360 degrees thereby allowing the valve to inflate the airbag from all angles. This valve closes automatically after inflation.
