This listing is for those people wanting to build their own projects who need air bags. Dump vehicles to drop car onto ground. 4 or 5 Link conversions from leaf spring. Drop car trailers to ground for easy ramp access.
By popular demand I now do the these with plain end plates. No bolts or air line holes so you can fabricate your own mounting points by either welding or bolting to the end plates any way you see fit.Previously we had 2 bolts per plate and people struggled with working to these bolt locations and lengths etc. The end plates are 6mm mild steel and untreated so they are easy to weld. They do come pre-drilled for the clamp rings and each plate comes with 6 bolts and spring washers for the clamp ring. With regard to the air inlet you can position that anywhere on the end plate that works in conjunction with your brackets.
It is simply a threaded hole. You can bet if I were to supply the hole it will be right where you dont want it. This #2500 bag is tested to 50t each and also to 400 psi. And so it's attained a government approved standard.
The 2500 series bags are all conservatively rated to 2500 pounds each or 1.2t and so 2 x bags combined are rated to 2.4t. Fully Compressed 65mm with 6mm ends fitted. Max Diameter- 155mm (widest when fully compressed). The bag comes with 2 new alloy rings and end plates.
This is 1 x Bag with end plates and rings. All of our gear may be picked up from our official BOSS development center in Labrador on the Gold Coast or we can send anywhere in Aus (or with express options) or Worldwide at affordable rates. If you have an ABN we can help you with trade prices.Almost every air bag application we do is bolt in. No welding or cutting or drilling. We make that a mandatory requirement when we develop a new kit. And we will make sure we do better. We wont be beaten on price, quality or service. Happy customers is our key to success. People often ask why or how are we so much cheaper than Firestone. So our costs are way down and if we charged Firestone prices we would be ripping you off. Our bags are not permanently attached to the mounting brackets. That means you can replace a bag if you have to without the costly new brackets as well. No need for qualified installers, anyone can fit our gear and its easy. We talk with farmers, tradies and travelers every day about their load carrying and air system needs and we take pride in making our mark on Australia. We have been doing air suspension for over 15 years and have over 20,000 Aussie customers out there running BOSS air suspension products. Over the years we make improvements where we can and so by now we have become a market leader recognised for having the best product at the best prices. BOSS also have a development center in Canada looking after our Canadian and American interests. We have a lot of exciting vehicle applications in the USA that eventually filter through to Australia and other parts of the world and so we have a very extensive range which includes all the American pick ups as well as the old classic cars like Chev and Buick.
At BOSS we dont copy others - To begin with we dont trust the others to get it right. But more importantly the others dont have anything to copy. BOSS are the first to get hold of new vehicle models and get kits to market having tried and tested them, fully getting to understand the vehicle and the engineering required. As such BOSS have the widest range of applications for Australian and USA markets and we are onto all the new models even before they are released. BOSS have the most comprehensively wide range of accessories as well.
All of our air compressors can be rebuilt and we stock those parts. We have tanks, pressure switches, water filters, braided lines, digital pressure gauges, everything for in car operation of your bags, the list goes on and on. BOSS air bags are manufactured in our BOSS factory with our own machines to our own exacting standards and specifications. We strongly believe it's the only way of maintaining strict control over the bags. Here are some interesting facts...
It takes over 20 minutes for each bag to go from the raw un-cured blended rubber to a cured air bag. 1 machine can only make 1 bag at a time. Its not just the thickness of the rubber that gives the bag its strength but also the angle of the reinforcing cords and design of the woven beads. The proprietary ballistic material used for the woven reinforcing on the airbag wall, along with the specific spacing and angle of the weave, is what gives our air bag its unique strength.
The bead ring ends of the bag are constructed of 4 Hi-tensile cords at each end, ensuring that the top and bottom hold their shape and cant be pulled away from the Aluminium clamping ring. The center of the air bag (the part of the bag with the most stress) is constructed using 9 strands of Hi-Tensile steel to form an indestructible center support.Our competitors's bags have less than half these strands. The BOSS airbag machines are operated at over 400psi while the curing process is taking place with very high heat.
There's an internal bladder pushing the airbag case into the mould ensuring consistency throughout the airbag wall. Each air bag machine has over 50 tons of clamping pressure on the mold during curing. Effectively these are desperately over engineered as there's no way you could ever exert over 50t and 400 psi on a bag in your vehicle. The factory tests selected bags to destruction within a controlled chamber to ensure continued bag quality and identify possible ways to constantly improve the design and technique. We have just recently released the exciting new EX-2 Bags.
They have a 5 year leak free guarantee. Tooling was modified to provide for a heavier and wider rim width. BEWARE: Some other brands use crimped-on end caps. Crimped or Banded air bags are prone to popping the end caps out at anything over 100psi and often simply pull the end caps out when the bag is fully extended. BOSS air bags are undeniably the strongest in the automotive industry and exceed any other air bag brands by nearly double.We pride ourselves in looking after everyone. Even if you have had your gear for years we will still look after you because who knows, our next customer could be your friend you refer to us.
