About Air Shock Bottle Packaging

Air Shock is an 'armoured air' product from Kite Packaging, designed to protect glass bottles in transit.

As with our standard range of Air Shock packs, the bottle packs are stored and delivered flat ready to be inflated as and when they are needed. Our range of air compressors and inflation kits are essential for the inflation of the packs.

Benefits

  • Easy To Inflate – All our bottle packaging, with the exception of our two bottle pack, come with a pre-inserted valve to aid inflation for labourers
  • Lightweight – Air Shock bottle packs are 98% air once inflated, reducing your overall pack weight significantly
  • Excellent Shock Absorption – An essential benefit when shipping glass, packs are made from LDPE and are rigid when inflated, providing 360 degree air cushioning
  • Easy To Handle – Pack time and labour costs can be reduced dramatically, as one pack is all that's needed to pack a product
  • Space-Saving – Uninflated pouches take up a margin of the space needed to store polystyrene or foam fittings
  • Presentable – Pouches are transparent, presenting good-looking bottles in an interesting way
  • Hygienic –No harsh chemicals or toxic residue, ideal for the drinks and pharmaceutical industry
  • Environmentally-Friendly – Can be deflated after use and recycled

Kite's Range of Air Shock Bottle Packaging

Our range of Air Shock bottle packs is suitable for various bottle sizes and is designed especially for the drinks industry and the pharmaceutical/healthcare sector.

You can use in two ways, by inflating the pouches prior to packing and inserting the bottles in, or by putting the bottles in the uninflated pouches and inflating the cushions around it. There is a plastic valve in some of the pouches (see indication below) to make inflation quicker and easier.

All packs are made from 75 micron LDPE material, creating the 'armoured' feel to the pouches. Please see bullet points below for more information about each pack.

Wine, Spirits and Champagne Bottle Packs

  • Sizes: Available as a 1, 2, 3, 6 and 12 pack
  • Useable Dimensions: 300mm (H) X 75mm (Diameter) – per bottle
  • Optional Outer Box Available: Yes, for all pack sizes
  • Suitable For: 70cl & 75cl glass bottles of drinks including wine, spirits, artisan cordials and soft drinks, champagne, cava and much more.

Kite's Range of Air Compressors and Inflation Kits

All of our Air Shock packs, including our bottle packs, are inflated using an air compressor – combined with an inflation kit. You can find out more about our air compressors and inflation kits below.

Air Compressors

We offer a small compressor, and a large compressor for inflating Air Shock. The large compressor is recommended for higher volumes, and both compressors come with a 12 month warranty. If you encounter any problems with these machines within the 12 month period please contact us to discuss your warranty.

Small Compressor

This is our compact (300 X 300 X 180mm) compressor, weighing just 8kg. It has a 4.5 litre capacity, a 0.5hp motor and operates at 116psi. This compressor is also low-noise, at just 83dB.

Large Compressor

Our large compressor (410 X 410 X 520mm) weighs 24kg and has a capacity of 22 litres. The 0.55kw motor operates at 120psi and is ultra-quiet running (52dB)

Inflation Kits

Both compressors can only operate with Air Shock in conjunction with an inflation kit. Each one is simply fitted; watch our video to see just how easy it is.

Gun Inflation Kit

Our gun inflation kit is quick and easy to use, attaching to the compressor with ease and operated with a trigger mechanism.

Desk Mounted Inflation Kit

We use this desk mounted kit at our exhibitions, and to demonstrate to Major customers as it is best for high volume use. Attach one valve to the compressor and the other to a foot pedal, which is simply pressed by the operative to release air in to the Air Shock packs.

Air Shock Packaging

We also sell Air Shock designed for protecting ceramics, ornaments, electronic items and other fragile goods. View our range of Air Shock Packaging online.

Video: Inflating and Using Kite Air Shock Bottle Packs
Watch how to inflate our Air Shock cushioned pouches and see the range of bottle packs.

Air Shock packs are delivered flat and can be inflated on demand.

Feed the corner of the inflatable pouch over the compressor nozzle.

Hold the nozzle and inflate the pouch.

Insert your product into the inflated pouch, then place in an outer box.

We sell a range of different pouches, including packs for 1, 2 or 3 bottles.

Video: Setting up and using Air Shock compressors and hoses
How to set up our large and compact compressors for use with the Air Shock system.

Read the instruction booklet before using the compressor for the first time.

You will need to change the valve in order to use one of our hose kits.

WARNING: This must be done BEFORE the compressor is plugged in.

The correct size valve will be included in your hose kit and just needs screwing in.

Use a spanner to tighten if required.

It is now safe to plug in the compressor.

Insert the hose into the valve until it clicks.

Adjust the air pressure using the red knob. We suggest using a pressure of 3 bar.

Insert the nozzle into the corner of the Air Shock pouch and squeeze the trigger.

If you are using our larger compressor, the valve is attached next to the gauge. Tighten with a spanner if required.

Insert the hose until it clicks. Squeeze the trigger on the gun to inflate the Air Shock pouch.

We also sell a desktop mount kit that is operated by foot pedal. Attach the nozzle to the edge of a workbench using the included screws.

Insert one hose into the valve on the compressor until it clicks. Insert the other end of the hose into one of the valves on the foot pedal.

Insert the 2nd hose into the other foot pedal valve. Place the other end of this hose into the nozzle valve.

To operate, press down on the foot pedal. Inflate your Air Shock pouch with ease.

Video: Air Shock extreme drop testing
In this demonstration we test how protective Air Shock pouches are by drop testing and throwing items at the wall to see if they survive.

Hi, my name is Tara and I work at Kite Packaging.

This is the Kite Air Shock, inside is a plate and we are going to throw it at the wall.

Still intact!

This our mug and saucer pack, and I’m going to drop it.

As you can see, the saucer and the cup are all still intact.

This our mug pack, it’s got a mug inside, and I’m going to throw it at the wall.

As you can see inside, it’s all still intact.

Video: Manual Air Shock Hand Pump
Watch a demonstration on how to use our alternative method of inflating Air Shock.

A great and affordable alternative method of inflating Air Shock Packaging. An Air Compressor is now not a necessity for businesses with small orders.

This brand new manual Hand Pump exhibits a tapered nozzle for easy insertion and dual action inflater for quicker inflation. It can be used for our entire range of Air Shock Protection, with or without valves.
