MaxiForce Air Lifting Bags by Paratech

Maxiforce Air Bags
When people think of air bags, they think about heavy lifting.  Lifting is only one of the many uses you will find for a set of air bags but lifting is what they do best.   Other uses for air bags are only limited by your imagination.  We have seen them inserted deep into farm machinery to free trapped limbs, used as a rapid vehicle stabilization system, and used to remove windshields.  The little 1 ton bag has been even been used to free a child's leg from a storm sewer grate. 

Please refer to either the Air Bag Set Chart for common kits or the Specifications Chart for information on individual bags.

So, why should you choose MaxiForce bags over the competition?  MaxiForce is not new to the air bag market.  They were introduced to the US market in 1976 and have been at the forefront of innovation and product improvement ever since.  The company is ISO 9001-2000 certified which means total documentation on every aspect of the manufacturing process, test procedures, and even their supply chain.  Besides being a GSA contract item with the Feds, other standards and listings include: National Coal Board (UK), NATO Stock Listings, National Defense Supply Listing, CE (Europe), Department of Industrial Relations (Australia),  South African Board of Mine Safety, Japan Standards Institute (JSI Compliance), and more.... 

  •  Maxiforce air lifting bags are made of Neoprene, embedded with three full layers of Aramid fiber reinforcement on each side, giving the bags tremendous strength at full inflation.  Neoprene is also resistant to a wide range of chemicals that are commonly encountered by rescue crews.
  •  Maxiforce offers a large variety of sizes and capacities so you can match the correct bag to the task.
  •  Various shapes are offered to accommodate various needs.
  •  Since the bags are so thin (from 5/8" to 1" thick) they can be placed in a lot of locations that would otherwise be inaccessible.
  •  The surface of the bags is designed to provide a slip resistant texture which will allow your personnel to easily stack bags for additional height.
  •  Bags rated at 10 tons and higher have eyelets molded into them.  These eyelets allow ropes to be attached so personnel can remotely position the bags.  Bags can even be vertically positioned.
  •  Each bag is marked with its load capacity and lift height.  Additionally, a large "X" marks the center of the bag to ensure maximum lift and maximum safety when stacking bags.
  •  Air bags work nearly silently.  This can be a real plus to the patient at an accident scene.

 

Control Sets
There are numerous control systems available for your MaxiForce air bag set.  We only stock the "deadman" type control units because of the additional safety they provide.  The basic set is the most frequently chosen but, the master control package offers more versatility.

Maxiforce Standard Control Set


890351 - Control Package
This is the basic set of controls we offer.  It features a dual, deadman controller, pressure reducing regulator, and three hoses.  Please specify the inlet fitting when ordering.  (CGA-346 for 3000 PSI and below; CGA-347 for pressures higher than 3000 PSI) 

This package will give your department complete functionality without sacrificing safety.

 

 

Maxiforce Master Control Package


890300 - Master Control Package
This is the ultimate control package for use with MaxiForce air bags.  It has all of the same components as our regular package plus inline valves, additional hoses, and all kinds of adapters so alternative air supplies can be used at the scene.

 

 

 

 

Air Bag Sets
The following sets were designed by MaxiForce to make ordering easier.  Most departments will start with one of the small kits and then add bags as their needs are refined by experience.  The kits only include air bags, controls must be ordered separately.  (Lifting capacity and height will vary according to air pressure and bag contact area.)
