3 Ways to Choose the Right Custom Case

Custom Case

Use these tips to order the right custom case.

Professionals in many different industries depend on custom cases to protect and transport their sensitive, expensive, and proprietary gear and equipment. Musicians transport instruments, engineers transport tools, and filmmakers transport cameras. Therefore, it’s all about choosing the right custom case to ensure that those items remain safe and intact. The materials, the fabrics, and the full customization – it’s all about placing your items in an environment that will get it from origin to destination. Here are three ways you’ll be on the right path to choosing the right custom case.

Consider Every Scenario

When choosing the right custom case for your needs, the first factor you should consider is the worst-case scenario. Custom cases are protective by nature, but it’s important that you think about every possible situation you may encounter while travelling with your case. First, what items will you be carrying in your custom case? Are they sensitive to moisture? Heat? Will they be able to withstand impact? The right case for your needs takes those factors into account.

Pick the Right Materials

Custom cases are usually made with either plastic or aluminum. Both are sturdy and trustworthy materials, but one may be of better use in your custom case than the other. Therefore, consider factors like EMI or RF frequencies. If your gear requires protection from either, then aluminum is the right choice. For the best impact resistance and handling the roughest conditions and high altitude, plastic is the right choice. Which is right for you depends on your preferences, your budget, and the requirements of the items that you’re travelling with or shipping.

Think About Customization

One of the biggest benefits of choosing a custom case is full customization. You can design the interior with the right fabrics and inserts that will fully encase your materials in a protective environment. This will help if you encounter any rough conditions while in transit. You can choose polyurethane foam to act as a protectant against shock or polystyrene for perishable goods.
