Rail

OUR DAMAGE PREVENTION EXPERTS CAN HELP WITH YOUR HEAVIEST RAIL SHIPMENTS

Goods that are shipped by rail car are exposed to much different forces than those shipped over the road. Due to the shunting (or switching) of rail cars in the rail yards, forces run lengthwise in the rail car. Inflatable dunnage air bags are used to secure the cargo towards either end of the rail car, and fill lengthwise voids within the rail car. All dunnage air bags that are used in rail applications must be AAR approved and are typically used in conjunction with other cargo securing products such as void fill, friction mats and strapping. Due to the heavier loads on the rail, we recommend the Atlas Level 3 airbag and the Atlas HD series (L4 and L5)
