CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. An inflatable web, comprising:

two juxtaposed sheets arranged such that the inflatable web comprises two longitudinal edges; and

seals between the two juxtaposed sheets that define chambers, wherein the chambers extend in a transverse direction between the two longitudinal edges, and wherein the seals include side seals that extend between the two longitudinal edges;

wherein the side seals include:

a first intermittent side seal comprising first side seal portions and first gaps between the first side seal portions, wherein the first gaps permit gas to pass between chambers on either side of the first intermittent side seal,

a second intermittent side seal comprising second side seal portions and second gaps between the second side seal portions, wherein the second gaps permit gas to pass between chambers on either side of the second intermittent side seal, and

a continuous side seal located between the first and second intermittent side seals, wherein the continuous side seal does not permit gas to pass between chambers on either side of the continuous side seal; and

wherein the first gaps are aligned with the second gaps in a longitudinal direction to form a non-continuous longitudinal channel across the continuous side seal.

2. The inflatable web of claim 1, wherein the first intermittent side seal and the continuous side seal form sides of a first chamber.

3. The inflatable web of claim 2, wherein the first chamber includes a plurality of cells that repeat in the transverse direction.

4. The inflatable web of claim 3, wherein a shape of each of the plurality of cells includes one or more of a circle, a rectangle, or a hexagon.

5. The inflatable web of claim 3, wherein pairs of the plurality of cells are coupled via passages.

6. The inflatable web of claim 5, wherein a cell width of the first chamber is a distance between the first intermittent side seal and the continuous side seal in one of the cells, and wherein a passage width of the first chamber is a distance between the first intermittent side seal and the continuous side seal in one of the passages.

7. The inflatable web of claim 6, wherein the cell width is a maximum width of the cells in the first chamber, and wherein the passage width is a minimum width of the passages between the cells in the first chamber.

8. The inflatable web of claim 6, wherein the first gaps in the first intermittent side seal have a transverse length that is greater than or equal to 75% of the cell width.

9. The inflatable web of claim 8, wherein the first gaps in the first intermittent side seal have a transverse length in a range between 15% less than the cell width and 15% greater than the cell width.

10. The inflatable web of claim 8, wherein the transverse length of the first gaps in the first intermittent side seal is less than or equal to 225% of the passage width.

11. The inflatable web of claim 10, wherein the transverse length of the first gaps in the first intermittent side seal is less than or equal to 175% of the passage width.

12. The inflatable web of claim 6, wherein the first side seal portions in the first intermittent side seal have a transverse length that is greater than or equal to 25% of the passage width.

13. The inflatable web of claim 12, wherein the first side seal portions in the first intermittent side seal have a transverse length that is greater than or equal to 75% of the passage width.

14. The inflatable web of claim 12, wherein the transverse length of the first side seal portions in the first intermittent side seal is greater than or equal to 15% of the cell width.

15. The inflatable web of claim 14, wherein the transverse length of the first side seal portions in the first intermittent side seal is greater than or equal to 30% of the cell width.

16. The inflatable web of claim 2, wherein the two longitudinal edges of the inflatable web include a closed longitudinal edge, and wherein the first chamber includes a first distal end proximate the closed longitudinal edge.

17. The inflatable web of claim 16, wherein the first intermittent side seal forms a side of a second chamber, and wherein portions of the first and second chamber are located on opposite sides of the first intermittent side seal.

18. The inflatable web of claim 17, wherein the second chamber includes a second distal end proximate the closed longitudinal edge, and wherein a portion of the second distal end of the second chamber is located between the first distal end of the first chamber and the closed longitudinal edge such that the second distal end is part of a non-continuous distal longitudinal channel that extends across the continuous side seal.

19. The inflatable web of claim 1, wherein the side seals have an alternating pattern of continuous side seals and intermittent side seal such that a pair of consecutive side seals in the inflatable web includes one continuous side seal and one intermittent side seal.

20. The inflatable web of claim 19, wherein, in the pair of consecutive side seals, side seal portions of the one intermittent side seal have a substantially mirrored shape of corresponding portions of the one continuous side seal.

21. The inflatable web of claim 1, wherein at least two of the first side seal portions have different shapes.

22. The inflatable web of claim 1, wherein at least two of the first side seal portions have the same shape.
