What types of aluminium cases are available?
There is a wide range of options when sourcing aluminium cases for your business. Choices include standard Zarges, Maxado and Bott cases plus custom-built aluminium flight cases. This range of options ensures a suitable case regardless of your application or requirements.
Why should I use aluminium cases?
Aluminium cases provide a wide range of benefits. Most notably, however, they have an excellent strength-to-weight ratio (their light weight makes them ideal for shipping and air cargo), and they are also hygienic and easy to clean.
Will aluminium cases become rusty?
A common misconception is that aluminium cases will rust if exposed to the elements. Instead, a minimal layer of oxidisation occurs, preventing further corrosion/damage to the case. This behaviour means aluminium cases are suitable for applications where they may get wet or are exposed to inclement weather conditions.
What is an aluminium flight case?
Whilst the two terms are interchangeable, aluminium cases typically refer to pre-fabricated trunks and containers (Zarges cases, for example). Aluminium flight cases are similar to standard flight cases but use aluminium material for the panels (allowing their manufacture in bespoke sizes).
Are aluminium cases heavy or difficult to handle?
Aluminium cases are exceptionally light, which makes them easy to handle and transport. Their low weight can also help to reduce shipping costs, particularly where this is a critical factor (such as air travel).
What applications are aluminium cases suitable for?
The strength and durability of aluminium cases mean businesses can use them in most industrial applications. However, they are also commonly used for shipping, medical applications (as they are easy to clean) and even for transporting professional sports kits and equipment.
Who are Zarges?
Zarges are one of the largest manufacturers of aluminium cases, renowned for its high-quality products. Their range includes the K470 and Eurobox options, specialist rack housing and battery boxes.
What is a “kit skip”?
A kit skip is a name to describe the aluminium cases used by professional (and semi-professional) sports teams to transport their kit and equipment. They are popular with Premier League football teams and are easy to clean and handle, making them ideal for transporting both clean and muddy kits.
Can I add foam inserts or foam lining to aluminium cases?
