Product description CargoSecure 1218 Dunnage Bag L1

The CargoSecure 1218 Dunnage Bag L1 is a versatile dunnage bag suitable for stowing high pallets. The dunnage bag has a size of 1,200 mm x 1,800 mm (120 cm x 180 cm). The dunnage bag has been developed to be placed in the longitudinal direction of a pallet. The CargoSecure 1218 is suitable for filling spaces up to 55 cm. Thanks to the special valve, CargoSecure dunnage bags can be reused 2 to 3 times. This type of dunnage bag 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 CargoSecure air gun is required to inflate and pressurize the dunnage bags. The air gun is optionally available.

1,200 mm x 1,800 mm: wide, high dunnage bag for extra stability

The CargoSecure 1218 Dunnage Bag L1 is one of the most commonly used dunnage bags from Navacqs. Thanks to the format of 1,200 x 1,800 mm, the dunnage bag is versatile in use. The dunnage bag is suitable for stowing pallets in the longitudinal direction. This given that euro pallets have a length of 1,200 mm (120 cm). This allows the CargoSecure Dunnage Bag 1218 to push the entire pallet in the longitudinal direction. The height of 1,800 mm (180 cm) is suitable for securing high stacked pallets. A bag with the same width size but a longer length of 2,100 mm (210 cm) is the CargoSecure 1221. This dunnage bag is intended for use with loading extra high pallets.

If the pallets have to be stowed in the width direction, we recommend a different size dunnage bag, namely the CargoSecure 912 or 918. These dunnage bags have a width of 900 mm (90 cm). The width of a euro pallet is namely 800 mm (80 cm).

For pallets lower than 1 meter we recommend the CargoSecure 912 and for pallets higher than 1 meter the CargoSecure 918.

Fill up to a maximum of 55 cm gap

The CargoSecure 1218 Dunnage Bag L1 is suitable for filling spaces between 35 and 55 cm. Between two pallets, or the gap between a pallet and the wall of a container. The dunnage bag can easily be placed in the interspace and can be inflated on site with a compressor. A comparable bag with even more length is the CargoSecure 1221 . Due to the height of 2,100 mm (210 cm), this type is extremely suitable for extra high pallets.

For narrower gaps (up to 35 cm) other dunnage bags are suitable, namely the CargoSecure 912 or  918. The size of these dunnage bags is smaller, namely 900 x 1,200 mm and 900 x 1,800 mm. This allows the dunnage bags to expand less far. Filling a narrower space of less than 35 cm is of course also possible.

Can be reused 2 to 3 times

The CargoSecure 1218 dunnage bag is equipped with a pressure relief valve developed by a valve. The valve is designed to simply allow air to flow into the dunnage bag. Thanks to a spring in the valve, it is also possible to easily empty the dunnage bag. This allows the CargoSecure 1218 dunnage bag to be used several times. When the dunnage bags are to be reused, it is advisable to check the dunnage bag carefully for possible damage.

To prevent damage, we recommend placing the dunnage bag 10 cm from the ground. This prevents wear on the underside by, for example, sliding and sanding during transport.

Manufactured from 2 layers (polypropylene / polyethylene)

The CargoSecure dunnage pads consist of two layers, namely a polypropylene woven outer layer with a thickness of 90 grams per m2 and a polyethylene 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 of the dunnage bag provides the strength of the dunnage bag. The purpose of the inner layer is to make the dunnage bag airtight.

The CargoSecure dunnage bags fall 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. All CargoSecure dunnage bags from Navacqs are certified Level 1 dunnage bags.

CargoSecure Air gun required (not included)

In front of inflating and pressurizing the dunnage bags requires a special air gun. For the CargoSecure dunnage bags the CargoSecure air gun is suitable. 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.

The air gun has a special pressure relief valve. When the dunnage bag is inflated to the correct pressure, the overpressure will flow away via the back of the air gun. This ensures that the dunnage bag always has the correct pressure. Air guns without a pressure relief valve can cause dunnage bags to be overinflated. As a result, the cargo can be damaged or even the outer walls of a container can be pushed out.

Use in combination with compressor

The CargoSecure 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
