    Why Should your Custom Case be Watertight?

    Thursday, July 24th, 2014

    Watertight custom cases

    When it comes to creating a custom case for your military and medical equipment, you need one that will be durable and sturdy. Another important characteristic to look for in your custom case is for your case to be watertight. While this may seem like a characteristic that isn’t imperative, having a watertight case is actually a necessary component to look for in your custom case. Some reasons for needing a watertight case include:


    1. Electrical equipment and water are never a good mix. Even the smallest amount of water can cause a short in general electrical equipment. If your case uses fans or other electrical devices to maintain temperature, water exposure could cause them to fail.
    2. Highly sensitive medical equipment should never be exposed to water. Water exposure could damage the equipment, leading to pricy repairs and failed projects or missions.
    3. If military equipment like weapons and ammunition is being transported, water exposure can never an option. Water damage can leave weapons faulty, putting soldiers and other personnel in danger when using the equipment.
    4. If a case isn’t watertight, transporters must by highly aware of how the case is transported and where the case is stored. A watertight case is able to be stored and transported in a number ways with no worry of damage from the elements.
    5. A watertight case will ensure the equipment inside will stay functional once they have reached their destination.


    At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom cases that are watertight to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential watertight cases are when transporting equipment for medical and military purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable.

    Independence Day and PSI

    Independence Day

    This Friday marks the 238th birthday of the United States of America. July 4th is the most celebrated day in America, as it highlights the independence of the United States from Britain. As Americans from all across the country begin to celebrate the holiday with parades, cookouts, and fireworks, here are a few things to remember about the holiday!

    1. Declaration of Independence- Independence Day is the celebration of the signing of the document known as the Declaration of Independence. This document, signed by Robert Livingston, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Thomas Jefferson, declared America’s independence from Britain.
    2. Federal Holiday- Although Independence Day had been celebrated since 1776, Congress didn’t declare the day a federal holiday until 1938.
    3. Not the Accurate Date- While we continue to celebrate our Independence on July 4th, the truth still remains that the actual time of independence came at least a month later. The Declaration of Independence was fully signed by each member of the Continental Congress until August 2nd and didn’t reach King George the Third until August 30th.
    4. Death of Two Men- On July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson passed away within hours of one another.
    5. Fireworks- The tradition of fireworks on July 4th began around the 19th century when citizens began to light and set off left over explosives from the war. Today, over 14,000 fireworks displays are ignited each year for the holiday.

    Packaging Strategies Incorporated enjoys celebrating the independence of the United States of America each year. Our company is proud to continue our partnership with every branch of the United States Armed Forces who continue to protect the independence of the American people.
