Custom cases need to be able to withstand whatever challenges await them in the field. When they are in transit, the cases and their contents are most at risk for some irreparable damage. Designing custom cases for emergency crew lighting can present numerous questions about the right way to ensure that the fragile contents of these cases will be intact when they arrive at their destination.
Choosing the Most Durable Materials
The first thing that should always be done is selecting the most durable materials. Here at Advanced Packaging, we offer sturdy aluminum custom cases. Polymers are another potential choice for your custom case. When polymers are used, they prove to be waterproof and will not react with any chemicals the custom case might come into contact with. Whether it is aluminum or polymer-based, choosing the most durable materials that you can matters because emergency crews will often need the most intensive light they can acquire; the darkness of night rescues or rescues from the disaster area are two situations in which emergency crew lighting is most essential.
The next step in designing the ideal custom case is to ensure its rigidity. Rigidity is a measure of how stiff and resilient the walls of the case are. If you think that paper isn’t as rigid as steel, you would be correct. But multiple sheets of paper folded together is stronger than one sheet alone. Likewise, when steel I-beams are brought together, they are more resilient than a steel beam that is by itself. By understanding this concept, designers can create cases that are lightweight and still incredibly robust. Eliminating corners from custom cases also increases the integrity of the entire case. The integrity of custom cases can also be improved through the ribbing technique.
Using the Ribbing Technique
The ribbing technique also creates areas that are recessed or lowered compared to the rest of the case. Emergency crew lighting structures and components can be stored in these recesses. The recesses also serve to protect the components against impact damage or other shocks encountered during transit. Ultimately, the design of custom cases for emergency crew lighting, if done correctly yields a robust product that can last for years and repeated rough handling.
