How to Inflate Dunnage Air Bags?

Dunnage air bags provide the most economical and effective method for bracing and blocking cargo while in transit. As compared to other methods such as using lumbar blockers or strap-downs, dunnage air bags provide many advantages because they are capable of filling all types of voids in-between cargo pallets. However, the bags must be inflated correctly for the best results…

Omni Dunnage Air Bags are made of Kraft paper with an inner layer of woven PP cloth for additional resilience and durability. The inside bladder is made of PA film, which enables quick inflation and deflation. An innovative inflation valve seals the bladder that can be inflated with an air-inflator gun.
