Air Shock is an 'armoured air'’ product from Kite Packaging, designed to protect glass bottles in transit.
As with our standard range of air cushion packaging, 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.
Please allow a 7-10 day lead time for the Small Compressor.
Our range of inflatable air cushion packaging 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 our Air Shock bottle pouches 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.
All of our air cushion packaging 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.
We offer a small compressor, and a large compressor for inflating air cushion packaging. 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.
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)
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.
Our gun inflation kit is quick and easy to use, attaching to the compressor with ease and operated with a trigger mechanism.
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.
Did you know we have a specialist team of experienced sales engineers who can design packs specifically for your products, including packs for large white goods, electronics and engineering stock?
Kite’s bespoke service is offered to our Major Accounts customers with high volumes of products to pack, and therefore minimum order quantities do apply.

It is now safe to plug in the compressor.
