The "Original" Airbag

Created in 1975 the valve systems on all our dunnage bags and over 40 years' experience cannot be denied when choosing airbags, systems and advice of the best quality.

Economic Cargo Protection

The price of the airbag is actually the smallest factor in the total economic picture. Most essential is the time saved loading and unloading, minimizing damage complaints, compensation claims from customers and the loss of goodwill.

Multiple Transportation Types

Bates Cargo-Pak airbags can be used in multiple transit scenarios, by container on rails, ships or trucks. When cargo is moved via train the sharp forces of coupling and decoupling make securing loads essential, inflatable airbags absorb the sudden jolts from coupling and the tremors and vibrations. Similarly when on the sea, a high friction value provides the airbags stay put – even over very long distances and in rough seas. Finally when on the road, sudden turns and breaking mean the airbag needs to perform to protect cargo from damages. 

Bates Cargo Airbags in Transit
Via Container

Container Cargo Bags

Involving a combination of road, ship and rail transport container transportation can influence the cargo in diverse conditions. Airbags secure the product in place fitting in the precise gaps. 

Via Truck

Truck Cargo Bags

Travelling on road, sharp turns, sudden breaks and roundabouts all have an impact on your cargo. Airbags protect the cargo in a flexible way and also during multiple loading and unloading times. 

Via Rail

Railroad Cargo Bags

During travel on rail, coupling and decoupling forces large metal against metal contact, the airbags absorb the sudden jolts and tremors via track shifting and rail transportation of goods. 

Via Ship

Shipping Cargo Bags

At sea airbags and cargo must withstand high stresses from various weather conditions to rough seas. The high friction value of Bates Cargo Pak airbags look to keep the airbag in place, protecting cargo. 

Bates Cargo Patented Valve

High Quality Valve System

A high-quality and effective valve system support the inflatable airbags remain “airtight”, even over the longest of hauls. All the valves across the product portfolio allow very quick inflation. The reuse valve can be opened and closed numerous times, thus the airbag can be used over and over again. The flex valve can be turned 360 degrees, which makes it possible to inflate from all angles. All valves are very user friendly in loading situations.

Focused on solutions which are value for money, maintaining global standards as well as being a environmentally conscious supplier of consistently high quality airbags. Based on decades of experience within the field of cargo protection. The mission is to minimize transport damage with inflatable airbags which can be sustained in all transit conditions.
