The four short tutorials provide you with information about :

The Ortovox AVABAG system is designed for 20 activations with a cartridge and 100 practice activations without a cartridge. Every system that has been activated often must be subject to a complete check-up.
A comprehensive general service must be carried out no later than 5 years after the purchase date. The service includes an inspection of the entire AVABAG avalanche airbag.
If you have been our customer, you can send or bring your AVABAG system & AVABAG cartridge into us where we will send this off to an authorized AVABAG Specialist. Provided that the recommended maintenance is scheduled, the annual check-ups and appropriate handling are adhered to, the AVABAG system has a maximum service life of 10 years
MAINTENANCE AFTER AVALANCHE DEPLOYMENT
Each avalanche deployment can push the material to its limit and damage the AVABAG avalanche airbag. That’s why a comprehensive general service is essential after an avalanche deployment. After an avalanche, your AVABAG system and backpack must be checked by the manufacturer.
The AVABAG system must be stored in a dry place, out of the reach of children, at room temperature (approx. 20°C). The AVABAG cartridge can remain attached to the system for storage. However, its weight must be checked before every use.
For longer storage periods, we recommend storing the cartridges separate from the AVABAG system. When separated from the AVABAG system, the AVABAG cartridge must always have its protective cap screwed on tightly and be stored in its original packaging.
Only water should be used for cleaning the AVABAG system and the AVABAG backpack. Do not use solvents or aggressive cleaning agents. After being cleaned, the AVABAG system must be completely dried at room temperature before being reused, otherwise, it is at risk of icing up.
