Types of Hard Shipping Cases
At Custom Case Company, our product line includes a broad range of hard shipping case types, each with specific applications in mind. Each type of case can be customized with a variety of options and features.
Heavy Duty Shipping Cases
Heavy-duty cases are reinforced to absorb frequent impacts while resisting dents, corrosion, shocks, and shattering. They provide security and protection for frequently transported objects, which see regular jarring.
Wheeled Shipping Cases
Wheeled cases help to address the challenge of maneuverability for bulky or heavy equipment or tools. They often come with telescoping handles or various types of wheel or caster options to overcome weight and bulk issues. Rolling cases are a good fit for instances where the cases must be frequently moved by hand over distances where carrying heavy cases is impractical.
Hard Plastic Shipping Cases
Hard plastic shipping cases provide high-level protection while offsetting weight challenges. Plastic offers lightweight protection to avoid adding unnecessary weight to heavier equipment and instruments. These cases come with various forms of molded interiors which can be contoured to fit specific objects.
Lightweight Shipping Cases
Lightweight case construction typically includes plastic cases, but other materials like polyester and polyethylene shelled foam are available as well. The main objective of these shipping cases is to overcome weight challenges.
Trade Show and Display Shipping Cases
Custom case design is quite common with trade show and display shipping cases. The protected items included in these cases tend to be specialized and unique. These cases are designed specifically to resist frequent jarring from transport. They tend to include compartmentalized interiors, wheels, handles, and a wide variety of custom interior and exterior features.
Shipping Cases for Computers
Computer components can easily be knocked loose from vibration or impact if not carefully protected, so computer shipping cases are designed to protect computers against jarring. These cases come lined with thick, shock-resistant foam. Preventing moisture, dust, extreme temperature, and other environmental damages are important features as well.
Military Shipping Cases
Designed for carrying sensitive equipment through rugged environments, military shipping cases are often made from aluminum, fiberglass, polyethylene, and engineered honeycomb panels. These cases also prevent damage from moisture, debris, temperature extremes, salt spray resistance, jarring, and other environmental factors common to military operations.
