Commercial Lift Bags are especially suited for remote locations or for deployment from small craft.

SUBSALVE USA Commercial Lift Bags are capable of being used by a single diver. These heavy-duty lift bags are ideal for use in light salvage, object recovery, construction, and scientific applications.

Designed to be portable, yet tough enough to last a lifetime.

Manufactured from heavy-duty nylon fabric coated with urethane for:

  • High strength
  • Very resistant to abrasion
  • Not affected by most petro-chemicals
  • UV resistant

The Commercial Lift Bags have 6000 lb. rated strength, resin-treated nylon lift straps sewn directly to the bottom of the lift bag, and has a safe working ratio of 6:1.

We can produce custom sizes and designs to meet your special requirements.

All SUBSALVE USA Commercial Lift Bags are equipped with:

Our own Plunger Dump Valve (which provides air control with a push-button knob at the top of the bag and a lanyard at the bottom of the bag)

1/4" NPT inflation port (for remote filling or multiple bag manifolding or to install our optional brass quick disconnect)

Each bag leaves our manufacturing facility equipped with all necessary hardware and is ready for immediate use.

Each SUBSALVE USA lift bag is tested prior to shipping, and must meet rigorous U.S. Department of Defense requirements.
