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.
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.
You will need a standard air compressor combined with an inflation kit to inflate Air Shock, see below for more information about each compressor and inflation kit.
Both compressors come with a 12 month warranty. If you encounter any faults with these machines inside 12 months, please contact us.
For both compressors you will need to use an inflation kit. Watch our video below for step-by-step instructions on how to fit each kit to your compressor.
A simple hose inflation kit, that attaches to the compressor and releases air when the trigger is pressed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
