Product description CargoSecure 918 Dunnage Bag L1

The CargoSecure 918 Dunnage Bag L1 is a versatile dunnage bag suitable for stowing high pallets. The dunnage bag has a size of 900 mm x 1,800 mm (90 cm x 180 cm). The dunnage bag has been developed to be placed in the width direction of the pallet. The CargoSecure 918 is suitable for filling spaces up to 35 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). To inflate and pressurize the dunnage bags, the CargoSecure air gun is required. The air gun is optionally available.

900 mm x 1800: narrow, high dunnage bag for stacked pallets

The CargoSecure 918 is a versatile dunnage bag suitable for stowing high pallets. The dunnage bag has a size of 900 mm x 1,800 mm (90 cm x 180 cm). The dunnage bag has been developed to be placed in the width direction of the pallet. It fits perfectly in combination with a Euro pallet with a width of 80 cm. Thanks to its length of 180 cm, the CargoSecure 918 is able to stow high pallets evenly. Stacked pallets can also be secured with the CargoSecure 918.

For lower stacked pallets up to approx. 1 meter we recommend the CargoSecure 912 Dunnage bag. This type has a size of 900 mm by 1,200 mm. When the pallets are placed longitudinally in the container, we recommend the CargoSecure 1218. The dunnage bag has a width of 1,200 mm (120 cm). This is equivalent to the size of a Euro pallet (80 x 120 cm).

Fill up to a maximum of 35 cm gap

The CargoSecure 918 has been developed to fill spaces from 5 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 with a compressor.

For spaces between 35 and 55 cm, other dunnage bags are suitable, namely the  CargoSecure 1218. That type has a length of 120 cm and a width of 180 cm. Thanks to these dimensions, the 1218 can fill spaces up to 55 cm.

Can be reused 2 to 3 times

The CargoSecure 918 dunnage bag is equipped with a special valve. The valve is designed to easily 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. For example, the CargoSecure 918 dunnage bag can be used several times. When reusing, it is advisable to check the dunnage bag thoroughly for possible damage.

To prevent damage during the transport of the load, 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)

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 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 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)

A special air gun is required to inflate and pressurize the dunnage bags. 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. As a result, the dunnage bag always has d 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
