Read up on some helpful things to think about when choosing a custom case!

Purchasing a custom case involves a lot of details that you’re going to have to make decisions on. It’s important to carefully consider the needs and demands that the case is going to have to fulfill. Luckily custom cases can be designed to very exact specifications to meet whatever needs you have, so think about these things when you’re deciding on a case.

Prepare for Worst-Case Scenarios

Most people think about the specific conditions that a case is expected to operate in. For example, if the case needs to be water-proof or is being transported in less than favorable conditions. But you never know when a case may be dropped or take a shocking hit. Your precious cargo needs to be protected no matter what may come up. So take care to think of all possible contingencies when choosing a case. Not every material provides the same level of protection and different designs can yield different protection levels as well.

Made of the Right Stuff

Review the different kinds of material that custom cases can be made of and what their specific advantages and disadvantages are. Aluminum cases are great if you need a case that can handle EMI or RF frequencies. Difficult conditions or shipping in high altitudes will require a case made of plastic.

Tough Enough Inside

Sensitive materials will also need foam inserts to provide added protection. Whether you should go for material such as polyurethane foam for its light weight or a material like expanded polystyrene for transporting perishable material is up to you. Doing your homework and asking the experts for recommendations is a great way to ensure you choose the right custom case for your shipping needs.
