Aluminium containers, transit cases, and kit skips suitable for a wide range of applications
Due to being manufactured with aluminium, Zarges cases are ideal for both hot and cold weather applications. In fact, Zarges cases can withstand extremes of temperatures, being equally suited to freezing conditions and use in hot climates.
Besides this, Zarges K470 (and aluminium cases in general) are resistant to water vapour, rust and corrosion. IP rated versions (to IP65 and IP67) are also available, whilst a foamed seal is included on all cases.
The Zarges K470 range also offers high levels of protection when storing and transporting items.
The high-quality aluminium exterior protects the contents of the containers against shock and impact, ensuring that all products are kept undamaged when in transit. All round beading and corner beads are also added for improved dimensional stability, whilst extra thick (1.5mm) aluminium sheet is used for larger cases (above 750 x 500 mm base sizes).

As well as the excellent durability and protection offered by Zarges K470 cases, they also provide a wide range of features to improve usability.

The cases can also be secured with plug locks, a spring anti-opening feature or a padlock (with a maximum shackle thickness of 6 mm).
All of this can also be combined with a number of branding options, including external printing, vinyl lettering and graphics, and even embossing of the cases surfaces. All over paint can be applied to change your cases colour too.

Will Zarges K470 aluminium cases rust?
Aluminium cases – unlike those manufactured from other metals – will not rust.

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 my K470 cases?
