The Cargo Guardian Standard is one of the most strong and robust dunnage bags from Navacqs. The air bag produced in Germany has a size of 900 mm by 1,200 mm (90 cm by 120 cm). This format makes it suitable for stowing small pallets in the width direction, up to a gap of maximum 35 cm. The Cargo Guardian dunnage bags are suitable for single use. After inflation with the air gun, the special adhesive strip ensures an airtight seal. This closure guarantees a higher reliability. This type of dunnage bag is manufactured from two layers: a polypropylene (PP) woven outer layer with a thickness of 90 grams per m2 and a polyethylene (PE) inner layer with a thickness of 80 microns (0.08 mm). To inflate and pressurize the dunnage bags, the Cargo Guardian air gun is required. The air gun is optionally available.
900 mm x 1,200 mm: small, extremely robust dunnage bag
The Cargo Guardian Standard is one of the most strong and robust dunnage bags from Navacqs. The Cargo Guardian dunnage bags are manufactured in Germany. Thanks to strict controls during the production process, these dunnage bags are the most reliable form of dunnage. Various quality controls after production contribute to the reliability of the dunnage bags.
With a size of 900 mm x 1,200 mm, the dunnage bag is suitable for stowing pallets in the width direction. This given that euro pallets have a width of 800 mm (80 cm). This allows the Cargo Guardian Standard to stow the entire pallet. The height of 1,200 mm (120 cm) makes it easy to stow small pallets.
The advice is to use this type of dunnage bag for pallets that are no higher than 1 meter. For pallets with more goods, we recommend the larger version, the Cargo Guardian Red Tight. This dunnage bag has a width of 1,200 mm (120 cm), but a height of 1,800 mm (180 cm). The height is useful to optimally support higher pallets. The precious cargo remains well protected during transport.
Filling space up to a maximum of 35 cm
The Cargo Guardian Standard is suitable for filling spaces up to 35 cm. This can be for spaces between the pallets, but also spaces between the pallets and the wall of the container or truck. The dunnage bag can easily be placed in the interspace and can be inflated on site. Filling a narrower space of less than 35 cm is of course also possible.
Other dunnage bags are suitable for spaces between 35 and 55 cm, namely the Cargo Guardian Red Tight. This type of dunnage cushion has a length of 120 cm and a width of 180 cm. Thanks to these dimensions, the Red Tight can fill a gap of up to 55 cm.
Intended for single use
The dunnage bags from the Cargo Guardian line are suitable for single use. When the air gun is removed, the special adhesive strip ensures an airtight seal. It is no longer possible to open the valve. The only option is to cut open the dunnage bag to deflate the dunnage bag.
To increase the reliability of the dunnage bag, a single-use valve has been chosen. With dunnage bags that can be used several times, the dunnage bags may have been damaged during previous transports.
Manufactured from 2 layers (polypropylene / polyethylene)
Cargo Guardian Standard is manufactured from two layers, namely a polypropylene (PP) woven outer layer with a thickness of 90 grams per m2 and a polyethylene (PE) inner layer with a thickness of 80 microns (0.08 mm). The combination of these two materials creates a very strong and high-quality dunnage bag with a maximum pressure of 0.57 bar (57 kPa). The outer layer (PP) aims to make the bag robust and to prevent damage. The function of the inner layer (PE) is to keep the air in the bag excellent, even during months of transport.
The Cargo Guardian Standard falls into the Level 1 category because the maximum pressure is 0.57 bar. The quality of the stitching also affects the strength of the dunnage bag. The American body AAR (American Association of Railroads) checks and certifies the dunnage bags.
Cargo Guardian Air gun required (not included)
A special air gun is required to inflate and pressurize the dunnage bags, namely the Cargo Guardian air gun. The valve of the dunnage bag and the air gun are fully coordinated. Other air guns from other dunnage bags, for example, cannot be used for the CargoSecure dunnage bags.
Geb smell in combination with compressor
The Cargo Guardian air gun is easy to connect to a compressor hose with quick coupling. The gun is fitted with a standard ¼ ”connection. Any compressor can be used to inflate the dunnage bags for occasional use. When using dunnage bags frequently, the advice is to use a compressor with the following specifications:
Power: 2-4 hp
Capacity: 500 liters / min
Boiler capacity: 200-300 liters
