Your transit case is sure to take a beating. Afterall, isn’t that why you need one? From in-flight turbulence, to crashing around in a bouncing, off-roading vehicle, you need to make sure your case can withstand the roughest elements. Fortunately, the trusted transit case manufacturers face the challenge of building durable, long-lasting, light-weight custom cases for you. Let’s take a look at what they deem the most important qualities of a transit cases’ proper functionality.
Strong Materials Matter
We talked about this a couple weeks ago, when highlighting the benefits of rugged plastic. Polymers that have a low weight are your best option. Although costly, you’re getting what you pay for. With optimal protective performance, they are waterproof, well-insulated, shock resistant and mold well. For clarification, polymers are a type of plastic.
Adding The Right Texture
Transit cases are designed with rigidity in mind. Using high strength with low weight, adding ribbed textures reduces shock from vibration. Rounded corners are implemented, as well, to protect equipment from shifting impacts.
A Hardware Finish
Transit case manufacturers finish them off with handles, latches, hinges and straps. These reduce surface area and add recessed texture. Because these areas are recessed to account for added carrying hardware, impact damage is minimized. Hardware should penetrate rigid metal interior and shouldn’t exclusively be housed within polymer. If this is the case, handles, latches etc. could rip out. To ensure strength and durability, your transit case should be made of polymer, incorporate ribbed textures and include expertly installed hardware.
