Customizing your Military Case

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

In situations of life or death, the last thing you need is for your military equipment to malfunction. Sometimes a basic military case is not enough to protect equipment from environmental stains or the daily wear and tear of storage in the midst of a military operation. Customizing your military case is the best way to protect equipment from the unpredictable. A custom military case can save you and your team in a dire situation by ensuring that equipment is safe and ready to use when needed.

There are many ways to customize your case to best suit your needs, based on environment, equipment, and usage. Although a custom case may seem secondary to the gun or other military equipment itself, it not only protects your investment, but it also protects your life.

Foam Inserts

Customizing your military case starts with molding the inside to fit your equipment. A good custom case needs a perfect foam lining to hold your equipment in place to prevent any shifting of the equipment while traveling. Impact based on transport is just one aspect of possible and unpredictable impact that could be inflicted on your equipment. In order to protect not only from transport, but also from military-related impact from living and working in an active combat zone, a custom military case with effective foam inserts and linings is necessary.

Foam linings can also be functional in addition to providing protection. Having a multitude of slots best suited to your specific equipment can help keep you and your equipment organized. In addition to fitting military weapons and other equipment in your custom case, you can also fit other tools and even medical equipment. Anything you will find valuable in a combat zone, you can fit in your custom case in one of the many slots you can design yourself.

Rackmounts
In addition to foam linings and inserts for your custom case, there are other things you can do to customize the interior of your custom military case. One of these things is to add rackmounts, especially for electronic equipment. Rackmounts secure your electronic equipment in order to use them no matter where you’re located. Rackmounts are made of shock absorbent aluminum to protect equipment from even the roughest of environments.

Protect Against the Elements
Your custom military case can also be customized to prevent damage due to harsh environments. In a military mission, weather is unpredictable and sometimes combat has to be carried out even in the harshest of conditions. Protecting your military equipment against the elements can be difficult but with climate control options, your custom case can get you and your equipment from point A to B safely.

Custom Aluminum Cases Benefit Protection of Contents

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Custom Military Case
Military equipment is sensitive and expensive, and thus requires the best care that can be offered. In addition to damage from simply breaking during transit, the equipment needs to be covered by sturdy materials for protection from weather and other unpredictable events such as electronic disruption. Aluminum cases can fit the needs of military transport in many different ways ranging from protective strength to cost effectiveness. Even civilian aluminum cases serve better than other materials because of its general ability to provide the best care for its contents.

Strength is Everything

Aluminum is a powerful metal in terms of durability. While most people may think of aluminum as weak due to the ease with which aluminum foil tears, you should bear in mind that aluminum foil is specifically made to tear in order to be easily utilized in the home environment. When it comes to field protection, the aluminum Is developed in a way that encourages strength instead of removes it. Cases made from aluminum of protection grade are sturdier than plastic and do not corrode as easily or visibly as iron and steel cases. In addition, they weigh less, allowing for easier carrying and, when shipped in bulk, a lighter overall cargo load. These benefits allow aluminum to surpass other materials in terms of effectiveness and overall look. Furthermore, the cost performance of aluminum is higher than other cases due to its flexibility during fabrication. Aluminum cases come in many different sizes with the capacity to hold a large number of objects. The efficiency with which aluminum performs makes it ideal for all uses, but especially military and medical use where fragile and sensitive contents become highly vulnerable during transport into volatile scenarios where every piece of equipment matters.

The Custom Option

The biggest value for an aluminum case is the range of customization options available to the purchaser. As mentioned, aluminum is a flexible material during production. This allows for greater freedom when shaping the material and hence why most cars and airplanes are made of aluminum. Easy cutting, especially with the many advances in computer-aided crafting, makes aluminum ideal for shaping to the slightest detail. In addition, aluminum cases can be fitted with a wide array of interior details such as felt, foam, or plastic. Since aluminum doesn’t decay very easily, the material inside won’t suffer from corrosion on the outside and will remain protected in the most difficult environments. The combination or external protection and internal adaptability makes this kind of casing even stronger in extreme situations. Cases can even be painted and marked in order to identify which branch of any given organization it belongs to. Aluminum cases share strength, but can be visually diverse in order to quickly identify which case contains what materials in the field.

Why is Case Design Important?

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Anyone who has ever needed to ship expensive military or medical equipment understands that the design of the case is imperative. If a shipping case is poorly design, the equipment inside could be left vulnerable to serious damage.

When you focus on case design for your military or medical equipment, you are leaving your options open when it comes to customization. This means that each case is designed for your specific situation. One case will not necessarily fit every piece of equipment you need to ship, which is why case design is essential when planning to ship expensive and sensitive equipment.

A case design should also incorporate sturdy and quality materials to protect the equipment found inside. Aluminum is the most used material when it comes to case design because it is able to stay strong during extreme circumstances while also being easy to transport. While the case design calls for durability, it should also be designed to be transported easily. If a case is too heavy or bulky, transporting can become difficult and ineffective.

A case design should also take into account the type of environment the case will be entering during transport. If you are expecting your case to enter dusty, rainy, frigid, or scorching conditions, your case should be able to withstand the weather without leaving your equipment vulnerable to damage. This means your case design should include water and air tight seals while also including materials inside to help maintain a safe temperature for your equipment.

Properly Packing a Military Case

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Custom Military Case
When you are transporting important military equipment, a proper military case is a must. However, just having the proper case is not necessarily enough to ship your equipment safely. Taking the proper steps to ensure your equipment is packed correctly will help your equipment arrive to its destination safe and sound.

1. Before any packing is done, determine what equipment you are shipping. Take note of the size of your equipment, detachable parts, and any sensitive areas that may require more protection than the rest of your equipment.
2. Based on the size of your equipment, choose a military case that will fit the equipment properly. Choosing a military case that is too small or too large for the equipment you are shipping could cause serious damage to occur during transportation.
3. Consider the elements your equipment will face during transportation. Harsh temperatures along with wind, dust, and water can cause serious complications or damage to your vital equipment. Ensure your military case is equipped to handle these possible weather scenarios.
4. Equip your military case with custom made foam interiors to add an extra level of protection to your military equipment. Foam interiors can be made to fit comfortably within your military case and to also allow specific areas for each portion of your equipment.
5. Be aware of the materials being used in your military case. Some materials, such as cardboard, can cause unexpected static electricity, which could result in hazardous malfunctions and even explosions.
6. Once your military case has been packed, ensure the case is properly labeled. This will allow handlers to quickly and properly identify your equipment during and after transportation.
