Dunnage Bags

Superior Dunnage Bags manufactured by Cordstrap

Dunnage bags are specifically designed to secure and stabilize cargo in containers, closed rail cars, trucks and ships. Use these bags to prevent both lateral and longitudinal movement.

Cordstrap dunnage bags better stabilise your cargo than timber blocking and bracing and Styrofoam. As timber and Styrofoam are more costly and time-consuming, you will also reduce cost and labour.

The best bag for your application depends on a number of variables such as void size, height of the cargo and specific shipping requirements.

Tailored dunnage bag solutions

Various types of dunnage bags can be used to stabilize cargo depending on the type of load and transport.

In general, there are three types of dunnage air bags:

  • Paper
  • PPL
  • Polywoven

We supply the Australian market with Cordstrap superior polywoven dunnage bags. The Cordstrap dunnage bags have the highest resistance to puncture and moisture and maintain their strength during an entire trip, with independent tests showing they provide the most secure solution.

Cordstrap dunnage bags are available in a wide variety of sizes. We can also customise them to match your individual requirements for size and strength.

Six levels of Dunnage Bags

Dunnage bags are available in 6 performance levels which have been established by the AAR (Association of American Railroads):

  • Level zero, one and two are mainly used in a container to fill empty spaces between pieces of cargo
  • Levels three, four and five are used to secure particularly heavy cargo like paper coils

We can provide all levels of dunnage air bags. It is our pleasure to advise you on the correct level of dunnage bag for your type of cargo and application.

Ease of cargo securing

Easy to access valve

Our extensive experience in cargo-securing has resulted in an optimal valve positioning: on the edge of the bag. This ensures easy access to the valve at all times: when the container door opens the valve is directly facing the user.

Fast inflation

The Cordstrap Direct Connect inflator needs only 14 seconds to fully inflate a 90x120cm Direct Connect woven dunnage bag with air. A huge time saver when securing a container!

Friendly to the environment

The outer layer of Cordstrap dunnage bags is made of polypropylene tubular woven fabric. The liner bag is made of polyethylene extruded film.

The bags are easily and safely removed at the end of their journey, and are 100% reclyclable.
