Protective transport packaging is essential for transporting professional and expensive equipment. For example, flight cases have been self-evident for years for the safe transport of microphones, mixing panels, cables, etc. The disadvantage of standard flight cases is the weight of the wooden plates used (usually birch). This means that the heavy flight case usually has to be moved by several people or by special equipment.
The solution is the Engels lightweight flight case, made of strong plastic sheets. The flight case is custom-made and can be equipped with, for example, wheels, a foam interior or drawers. Like the classic flight case, the lightweight flight case from Engels is equipped with the characteristic aluminum profiles and ball corners for strength. However, the light but sturdy material makes the difference.
The honeycomb structure of the Aircell sheets provide stability and have a high rigidity. With a thickness of 15 mm, the plates can be loaded up to 2 tons! The flight case can be moved by 1 person thanks to its light weight. This makes the plastic flight case a strong transport packaging.
Moreover, it is a sustainable product, since both aluminum and plastic can be 100% recycled into new products.
Does your flight case have to be designed as a suitcase, box or with a specific size?
The employees of Engels are happy to help you put together your ideal transport packaging. The plastic flight case is custom-made in-house especially for you.
After an inventory of your wishes and requirements, our R&D department will start working for you. With special software we make a 3D image of your flight case, so that it is clear in advance what your flight case will look like. Once you agree with the design, the assembly department team develops the design into a complete product. Finally, your custom flight case can be transported.
