Dunnage Bags helps to absorb impact and vibrations in cargo during transportation and can be reused several times. The highest forces during trucking often appear in the accelerating or braking process. Despite paying attention to the roads, there may be a possibility of an emergency brake. As they drive through corners, waves on the highway may ignite a high force on the cargo, causing movement and impacts to the goods.

During shipping, the heavy seas cause intense pressures that may result in cargo movement. Transporting goods by rail may be four times higher than by sea or road transit. Vertical driving direction and reverse forces are incredibly tremendous. Thus, despite incorporating a safe strapping and lashing system to secure the cargo, Dunnage Bags are used for additional load securement.

Dunnage Bags are used to secure cargo and create a bulkhead during transit. They are great void fillers to prevent movement and absorb impacts in a sea container, rail car, truck, vessel, or intermodal. Dunnage Airbags combine IN-LINER (also known as the bladder or balloon), which holds the compressed airtight at high-pressure levels, and OUT-LINER (the cover) to give the Dunnage Airbags shape, stability and enormous strength. To ensure perfect tightness even under high pressure, all our Dunnage Airbags IN-LINER are made of specially extruded polyethene (PE-mixture).

At Stream Peak, the OUT-LINER of Dunnage Airbags come in two different materials – Kraft Paper and Woven Polypropylene (PP). The Kraft Paper Dunnage Bags are the most common Dunnage Airbags used worldwide. Available in 1, 2, 4, and 6 plies, the Kraft Paper Dunnage Bags can be applied to the in-liner in multiple layers, making it extremely strong. On the other hand, Woven PP Dunnage Bags make an excellent alternative to Paper Dunnage Bags as they are lighter and recyclable. Besides, the woven PP Dunnage Bags are water-resistant.
