Are Zarges K470 cases waterproof?

All Zarges K470 cases boast a foamed lid seal, preventing dust and water splashes from entering the case. However, it is possible to purchase enhanced K470 cases that are IP65 or IP67 rated (ensuring complete resistance to water, even when submerged).

Do Zarges K470 cases rust?

Aluminium cases—unlike those manufactured from other metals—do not rust. A small layer of oxidisation forms, which then acts as a barrier preventing further corrosion. This means Zarges K470 cases are suitable for use in environments where they may come into contact with moisture over a prolonged period.

Can I add foam inserts to K470 cases?

You can choose to enhance any Zarges K470 aluminium case with custom-engineered foam inserts (or even simple foam lining). This not only helps to organise tools and equipment but can also provide very specific levels of protection for sensitive items.

What is a kit skip?

Many aluminium cases, including Zarges K470, are used as kit or travel skips for transporting sports kits and equipment (professional football teams favour these cases, for example). Their easy-to-clean surfaces make them ideal for muddy or dirty kits.

Where are Zarges cases manufactured?

Zarges cases are manufactured in Germany, where the company was founded in 1933. It now has manufacturing facilities in Hungary and a tech centre in the US.

Are there any alternatives to Zarges K470?

Zarges manufactures a wide range of aluminium cases, including the Eurobox, Box, K410, and K411 cases. However, alternatives are also available from Bott and Maxado, as well as custom-built aluminium flight cases.
