This stand alone, inflatable, vertical Climbing Airbag is designed for box storages of crops, to seal the vertical ducts between the rows of boxes. Also this product is developed out of a need from within the market because of the fact that a simple and safe solution for the vertical sealing of ducts was required. Up till now, often two or more men are needed to mount the vertical airbags. This does not only require a lot of manpower and time, but one must also work on often unsafe heights. The Mooij Climbing Airbag is designed in such a way, that only one person can easily and quick install and remove the Climbing Airbag, while staying on the ground.
The already existing vertical airbags need to be mounted on height onto the boxes or onto the horizontal Airbag. This newly designed stand alone Climbing Airbag is to be filled with air from the ground, until the desired height is reached and the duct is sealed. When a number of stacks of boxes need to be removed, the Climbing Airbag can simply be deflated and can easily be moved to a new position, where it can be filled with air again. This only in just a few precious minutes.
When developing this new product, it was very important that the Climbing Airbag is made out of extremely solid and durable material, while it is still flexible and well manageable. It must be possible to regularly fill and deflate the Climbing Airbag while no damage occurs to the material by, for example, splinters from the wood of the boxes. Therefore, an ingeniously designed guided item is attached to the inside of the Climbing Airbag which makes sure that it will roll out from the inside and will be rolled up inwards again.
