Dunnage Bags protect your cargo!
ECPs easily Inflatable Dunnage Bags are the logical answer to eliminate load shifting within Container, truck, rail or sea freight break bulk cargo shipments. We have available bags with either Fast fill = valves or the standard international valve used on ships.
Dunnage airbags consist of closed chambers made from an elastic film filled with air. When at rest, only the static load generated by the weight of the package contents bears upon the cushioning. When dynamic loads occur, these are absorbed by compression of the cushion.
The quantity of inflation air may be varied in accordance with the particular properties and requirements of the package contents. Dunnage bags are commercially available in various sizes and designs, ranging from spheres, standard cushions to corner and edge cushioning and tubular cushioning. Dunnage bags can be used to stabilize, secure, and protect cargo during all sorts of transportation. Dunnage bags are placed in the void between the cargo. Dunnage bags can be used in all modes of transportation. Besides being usable in all modes of transportation, almost every type of cargo can be secured with the use of dunnage bags, including break bulk and palletized cargo, coils, barrels, cases, and crates.
Dunnage bags are very safe to use for both the shipping and receiving end of transportation and are waterproof. They inflate rapidly with compressed air, and are easy to install; compressed air is often available through an outlet in the truck’s compressed air system.
Important in the use of dunnage bags is that the size of the bag is determined by the void. If this does not match, the bags will not do their work properly with potential large damage to cargo and people. For air cushions, it is important to avoid damage as a result of wear and tear. Air cushions should never be used as fillers against doors or any non-rigid surfaces or partitions.

What is a Dunnage Bag?
A dunnage air bag is a poly bladder surrounded by numerous plies of high strength paper or poly-woven material, equipped with an inflation valve to allow the bag to be inflated or deflated. The dunnage air bag is inflatable and used to immobilize cargo and for securing your load, it minimizes front-to-back load shifting in containers, railcars and break bulk cargo holds.
