    Default Airbags

    Alright fellas, we're in the market to replace our high and low pressure bags on the rescue at work. Which ones have you used, pros, cons, recommendations? Also does anyone know of the life expectancy of the bags and is there a method of testing/certifying older bags? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    John, we replaced several airbags last year in West Chester and were very surprised to learn that most high pressure airbags have a ten year life expectancy. We use Paratech airbags and have found them to be very dependable and user friendly. Let me know if there is anything else you need.

    I've got a quite a bit of use with the Paratechs and they are great for us. Used the new Vetter bags at a class and they seemed like they would be a great option as well.
