About Air Shock Packaging

Air Shock is the branded inflatable air cushioning product from Kite Packaging, a great-value equivalent to brands such as Air Sac, AirPack and Safe Air.

Designed for a range of different items, the packs are packaged, stored, and delivered flat to save shipping costs and reduce the amount of space they take up in a warehouse or packing area. You can then inflate them on demand using an air compressor.

Benefits

  • Lightweight – Air Shock packs are 98% air once inflated, making them very lightweight and ideal for air freight
  • Easy To Inflate – Most packs come with a pre-inserted valve, where the air compressor nozzle can be quickly put in, and the pack is inflated in seconds
  • Easy To Handle – One pack serves all purposes and no void fill is required, reducing pack time and labour costs
  • Excellent Shock Absorption – Made from LDPE making the packs tough and rigid once inflated, providing shock-absorption
  • Burst Resistance – The rigid packs make Air Shock difficult to burst, and each chamber of air is isolated so a small tear will only burst one single chamber
  • Space-Saving – Inflated on demand, the uninflated pouches take up very little space, particularly when compared to foam, bubble wrap and polystyrene
  • Presentable – Transparent pouches to clearly display items inside
  • Hygienic – Completely mess-free, with no harsh chemicals or toxic residue
  • Environmentally-Friendly – Can be deflated after use and recycled

Kite's Range of Air Shock Packs

Our standard range of Air Shock packs is suitable for most products, particularly in the retail sector.

To use effectively, simply place your goods inside one of our specially designed pouches and inflate so that a protective cushion of air surrounds the product. Alternatively you can pre-inflate the pouches in a packing area and pop each item in.

All packs are made from 70-75 micron LDPE material, making them tough and rigid. Find out more about each type of pack below.

Gun Inflation Kit

A simple hose inflation kit, that attaches to the compressor and releases air when the trigger is pressed.

Desk Mounted Inflation Kit

This inflation kit is better suited to high volume use; it has two valves – one to attach to the compressor and one to attach to a foot pedal which controls the air flow.

Air Shock Bottle Packs

We also sell Air Shock designed for protecting bottles, including wine, spirits and champagne – as well as protection for small and large medicine bottles. View our range of bottle packs online.

Air Shock Bespoke Packs

We have a team of experienced sales engineers who can design packs specifically for your products, including packs for large white goods, electronics and engineering products.

Our bespoke service is offered to our Major Accounts customers with high volumes of products to pack, and therefore minimum order quantities do apply.

If you are looking for a bespoke pack, please contact us on 02476 420065.

Video: How to use Air Shock packs
Discover the many uses for our range of Air Shock packs, from electronics to ornaments and framed photos.

Kite Air Shock packs are inflated using a standard air compressor with a nozzle fitting.

Slide the open end of the air tube over the nozzle, hold and inflate until all of the tubes fill with air.

All of the pouches can be inflated in this way, including the dual pack.

5 standard packs are available.

Pack 1 can be used for items including a carriage clock, ornaments, jewellery gift boxes, boxed smartphones, camera lenses, electronic components, light bulbs, electrical fittings and gift boxes.

Pack 2 is suitable for bulky DVD box sets, larger gift boxes, medium sized boxed electronics and bulky routers.

Pack 3 can be used for fragile / antique books, framed photos, wall plaques, slim DVD box sets, make-up sets, flat routers, electronic circuit boards and tablet computers.

Pack 4 is great for boxed tablet computers, tablets in cases, shoes, small mirrors and tiles.

Pack 5 (which has 2 connected pouches) can be used for a sat nav unit and car kit, games controller and accessories, and a digital camera with accessories or lenses.

You will need a standard air compressor combined with an inflation kit to inflate Air Shock, see information above for more information about each compressor and inflation kit.

Turn on closed captions for details instructions.

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.

In this video, we see whether a fragile object survives being thrown at a wall whilst in our Air Shock Protection.

All the objects are still in tact after the drop tests.

All packs are made from 70-75 micron LDPE material, making them tough and rigid.

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.
