  • Fishing and Tackle Boxes

    A few days ago I was able to have my first fishing adventure on the big lake. I have gone numerous times in the past, but only on small lakes with fairly small fish. This was the first time on one of the Great Lakes, aiming for the biggest fish the lake had to offer. And, it was a success. I was able to reel in my first king salmon, and it was huge. It was fun, and a pretty decent learning experience. While I have fished with a pole...

  • For the Clumsy and the Careful

    I would not classify my self as clumsy nor would I say I am extremely unlucky I am somehow talented at trying to carry too many things and managing to not just drop one thing, but every last item in a frantic mess. Luckily, I am usually carrying things that will be safe even if dropped. The cell phone and groceries can be problematic though For those like me that may be working with slightly more important equipment or products, a hard carrying case just may be the way to...

  • Underwater Cameras and Waterproof Cases

    On the last day of swim practice my senior year of high school, the other seniors and I each brought a disposable waterproof camera. After practice we hung out in the pool and diving well, taking pictures and goofing off. It was our last practice together after the four brutal years and we wanted to celebrate it and remember it forever. The cameras were basically regular disposable cameras, but they had a waterproof casing surrounding them. While it helped us have a fun last practice, waterproof cases have many more...

  • Hard Cases, For Tough Protection

    When traveling or transporting items, making sure the items are well protected is a constant anxiety. Watching your things being heaved or thrown into airplanes or onto trucks carelessly, and with obviously no concern for what is inside them is a nonstop worry. Soft cases are able to provide some slight protection against scratches, or light impact. But in situation where heavy impact or weather elements could occur, something a little more substantial is usually needed. In these situations hard cases are the most effective. Hard cases tend to be...

Industry Information

Traveling Safe With Hard Cases

Various industries use hard cases to safely and efficiently transport sensitive products and equipment. Hard cases are heavy duty and protective, and are made from various rigid materials for the purposes of transit and shipping. These cases are capable of protecting their contents from damaging elements such as dust, moisture, vibration, and shock. In addition, they are waterproof, crush-proof, flame resistant, static-proof, and can be fabricated to be humidity-regulated.

Out of all types of cases, hard cases provide the most protection. Hard cases can be made from materials such as titanium, wood, plastic, and aluminum. These cases are used for a multitude of applications, from travel and shipping to protecting everyday items. Hard cases are designed to house items such as cosmetics, tools, glasses, medical equipment, electronics, and instruments. Hard cases are highly recommended for the storage of fragile, valuable, or breakable items in order to ensure they travel from place to place without getting damaged. There are some cases that feature a set of handles and wheels that allow for smoother and easier movement.

Many frequent fliers favor hard luggage over soft luggage due to how roughly airline luggage is handled. Soft luggage is prone to tearing, and fragile items are more prone to breakage when contained in a soft case. Hard cases can be custom designed to safely house items such as electronic tablets and cell phones and protect them from damage if dropped. The case absorbs the impact and greatly reduces damage done to the electronics. Hard cases that are water tight and made from plastic are also available for sensitive items if they must be around elements that may cause further damage, such as water or sand. Hard cases are used by logistics companies so they are able to ship fragile and expensive goods with a minimal concern for damage. Hard tool cases are used to keep tools in one place so they do not shift around within the container and potentially harm other contents stored inside. Softer containers such as cardboard boxes are not recommended for carrying tools such as saws or screwdrivers, as their sharp components can easily puncture through the box. Hard carrying cases help to keep these types of tools safe and eliminate the risk of injury.

Hard Cases

Many hard case manufacturers offer the option of customizing their cases for optimal organization, storage, and protection. For example, the packing material within the case can be cut in the shape of the items being stored. Other protective measures may be taken as well, such as the addition of spring loaded handles, twist latches, heavy duty swivel casters, buckles, aluminum framing, fortified steel, shock mounts, rubber gaskets, zippered pockets, or straps. The chosen material, the packing material, and all of the aforementioned additional features can play a significant role in strengthening the case and protecting both the case and its contents from shock or fractures. Cases can be made by way of blow molding or rotational molding. In the process of blow molding, a hollow part is created by the application of pressurized air to a stream of hot plastic. In the process of rotational molding, a mold is rotated as a plastic resin is shaped. An additional process that can be used in hard case fabrication is injection molding, which involves the pouring of hot plastic into a mold cavity and leaving it to cool and harden. Metal cases are fabricated by fastening a thick sheet of metal to an extruded metal frame, and the corners are sometimes reinforced with steel plating for further protection during transportation. FRP plastics contain fibers that are fastened together by stitching, braiding, knitting, or weaving, and then bonded to a tough plastic surface, or a matrix.

Hard cases can be easily found and can be manufactured in a multitude of shapes, materials, and sizes. Popular materials that are used to fabricate hard cases include aluminum, steel, wood, and various plastics such as linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), rotationally molded polyethylene, carbon fiber, fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP), and high density polyethylene (HDPE). Traditionally, hard cases have been simplistic in design. However, over the years, more custom options have become available. Hard cases may contain packing materials such as wood shavings, rubber, foam, shelving, special racks, heavy foam, and packing peanuts. Hard cases can be the size of briefcases and contain compartments for organizational purposes. These cases are used extensively in industries such as music, optical, emergency, medical, travel, outdoor, business, athletics, and automotive, and can be found storing items such as firearms, musical instruments, audio production equipment, electronics, hearing aids, first aid supplies, and camping equipment. Other items that hard cases are recommended for include jewelry, documents, medical supplies, monitors, computers, and electronic devices.
