What have developments by case manufacturers got to do with the likes of your business?
Well, if you’ve ever had to use a protective flight case, needed to transport any product in inhospitable climate conditions, or handle items that are vulnerable or at risk of damage, quite a lot.
Obviously, defence manufacturers rely on military cases and medical supply manufacturers require specialist industrial cases, but plenty of other businesses have the need for robust, often waterproof, aluminium cases and flight cases to send their valuable samples and products around the world.
If a specialist, sensitive piece of equipment is destined for a ship or oil platform, a journey that is safe and waterproof is obviously key to its successful performance, so a storm case with an appropriately protective case insert is essential. If that storm case and the foam insert are both manufactured by the same company on the same premises, you can be assured that the fit will be an effective one. And if that manufacturer is experienced and skilled enough to be an authorised case manufacturer of the premium world brands such as Peli cases or Explorer cases, for example, take that as an endorsement of the highest level.
It’s worth knowing a little more about the foam insert that is going to fit into your flight case or aluminium case, to protect your valuable equipment. A good name like Plastazote is always a reassuring sign – again, case manufacturers authorised by brands such as Plastazote enjoy the confidence of those brands, who naturally guard their own good reputations well.
Of course, flight cases and protective aluminium cases may not always be the solution if space is an issue. That’s when collapsible tote bins come into their own. Tote bins are robust and light, but collapse down when not in use, taking up minimal space. When needed once more, the tote bins are simply reassembled to give your valuable or fragile cargo all the protection it needs.
It’s worth, then, taking note of the latest moves in the protective packaging world. When you’ve invested in a product that you are proud of, you need to be sure that everything from the foam insert that cushions it, to the quality of build and the material of the flight case or waterproof case, is as good as it can be.
