Design custom flight cases with Packaging Strategies, Inc.

In today’s interconnected world, people across all industries expect to be able to ship everything. While that is largely possible, some items need extra care when shipping, especially if they may be shipped often back and forth from far locations. This may include firearms, audio/visual equipment, musical instruments, medical tools, lighting and production equipment, and much more. If you have delicate instruments to ship, you can design custom flight cases with Packaging Strategies Inc. to ensure durability, reliability, and protection of fragile equipment. 

How Can You Design Custom Flight Cases? 

The case designers at Packaging Strategies Inc. work with each client to provide the best solutions for shipping their fragile items. Our designers create cases that adhere to ATA specifications while giving the user the flexibility to customize their case designs with unique features. 

Once the case design is determined, we will construct your cases with high-quality materials like cushioning foam. The final touches include exterior hardware like ball corners, heavy-duty wheels, and recessed steel handles that meet or exceed ATA specifications. 

What Are ATA Cases? 

An ATA case refers to containers that meet government specifications for development, design, and procurement to ensure that the case’s contents are effectively packaged for shipping by air. ATA comes from the “Air Transport Association,” which originally created these specifications. These cases may also be referred to as “road cases” or “flight cases.”

The Expectations for Custom Flight Case Materials

Custom flight cases must meet the ATA Specification 300 Category 1 guidelines. These guidelines were initially applied only to containers shipped by air, but this has become the reference name for all cases of this style. Most people may recognize this type of case as one found backstage at a concert, with aluminum edges, recessed steel latches and handles, and wall panels that often have protective plastic laminate on the outside. It may also have panels made of plywood and plastic of varying thickness. The interior is typically made of felt carpet, wood, or foam, depending on what the case is designed to ship.
