SafeLock and JetFlow: What is the Difference?

10 Jul 2017 Superior Packaging Company

International Dunnage offers two different types of valves for your dunnage bag needs. What is the difference?

Let start out with the different types of bags we offer, and what valve corresponds with each bag. International Dunnage offers the following bags:

  • Square airbags (Jet Flow)
  • Level 1 (Jet Flow or Safe Lock)
  • Level 2 (Safe Lock)
  • Level 3 (Safe Lock)
  • Level 4 (Safe Lock)
  • Level 5 (Safe Lock)


Jetflow Valve

The Jetflow valve is pictured above. This valve uses basic physics to seal the bag. The air is blown into the bag using both the outside air and compressed air offering a fast filling bag. After the bag is filled, the pressure of the air inside the bag seals the bag initially. Capping the bag off with the red cap completes the filling and sealing of the bag.

Some advantages to the Jet flow system include but are not limited to:

  • Consistency of air pressure
  • Elimination of over-inflation.
  • Fast inflation and deflation
  • Reusability
  • AAR verified

SafeLock Valve

The SafeLock Valve is pictured above. This valve uses a mono-block body that reduces the risk of leakage. It has only one sealing point. Due to its spring-loaded construction, this valve is AAR certified. By turning the stem at a 90-degree angle, the valve can be easily closed and opened.

Some advantages to the SafeLock include but are not limited to.

  • Simple design
  • AAR verified
  • Safe and airtight
  • Multipurpose
