Interiors for a Custom Military Case

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Militay-Case

When equipment is being shipped to any members of our military, it is essential that the equipment arrives in pristine condition. If damage occurs to the equipment during transport, the results could be devastating. Those stationed on the front lines don’t have time to deal with malfunctioning equipment, it could end up being a matter of life or death. In order to prevent such damage from occurring, create your custom military case with interiors that protect your military equipment.
So what type of interiors should you consider for your custom military case?

Climate Controls
While we may not know exactly where some military equipment travels, it is safe to say that the environment is less than ideal . With such harsh temperature changes, it is important to protect your military equipment from the elements. Climate controls help to maintain a stable and ideal temperature within the custom military case to ensure that equipment inside is left in working order. Without these controls, extremely high or low temperature could cause internal damage to your equipment, rendering them useless upon arrival.

Foam Inserts and Liners
While those who handle your custom military case will try to do so with care, there is no telling what kind of conditions your case will be entering. Shocks to the case whenever serious movement occurs could not only damage the exterior of your equipment, but the internal workings as well. Foam inserts and liners will create an absorbent barrier between the case and your equipment to prevent damage from occurring during movement.

Rackmounts
Does your military equipment include computers? Rackmounts allow you to safely store your computers and other electronics safely within your custom military case without the fear of damage to the internal hard drives.

Do I Need a Foam Interior?

Friday, February 6th, 2015

When it comes to creating a custom case for your military or medical case, customers are often provided with a number of options. These options can include the size of the case, the material used to make the case, and even what can be included inside the case. One of the more commonly found options for a custom case is foam interior. While a foam interior may seem like an unnecessary addition to your case, many fail to realize how essential a foam interior can be.

Foam-Interior

A foam interior can first and foremost protect your expensive and sensitive equipment. The foam interior can help to absorb any shock and harsh movements that can occur while the case is being transported, which helps prevent serious damage from occurring. Without a foam interior, the inner workings of your equipment could become compromised due to movement during transportation. A foam interior can also help keep your equipment organized. You can create an interior that provides a specific compartment for each piece of your equipment to ensure each piece has its place. This can also help decrease the time spent trying to reassemble your equipment once it has reached its destination. A foam interior can also help balance and maintain the temperature within your case. Should your custom case pass through extreme heat or chill, your equipment will be unaffected thanks to the surrounding foam. A foam interior can also help prevent any outside elements, like dirt or dust, from reaching your equipment as well.

Choosing your Custom Military Case

Custom Military Case
Choosing your custom military case can be difficult, and almost stressful. You want to be sure to choose a case that is affordable, efficient, and strong. If your military equipment becomes damaged during travel, your life could be at risk. You need your military equipment to stay safe and secure during travel to ensure proper function and the safety of everyone around you, including yourself. Here are some things to consider when choosing your custom military case:

1. Overall Protection- You must consider the level of protection your custom military case is offering you. You need a custom military case that will not only protect your equipment from the outside, but the inside as well. Look for a custom military case that uses aluminum as its outer shell and that also includes a custom foam interior. The foam interior will help keep your equipment safe from movement and temperature.
2. Equipment- Determine the type of equipment you are transporting in your custom military case. Some types of equipment require more protection than others. Some equipment can be simply placed inside a case while others require a foam interior and other customizations.
3. Arrival- When choosing a custom military case, keep in mind where your equipment is heading. Locations that have extreme hot or cold temperatures require cases that offer temperature control options. Locations that see plenty of rain or high levels of humidity require cases that are watertight, which will prevent moisture from entering the case and causing damage. Dry locations require cases that are airtight, to prevent debris from entering the case and damaging the equipment.
