More Info on Peli Hardigg Cases

World leader in rotomolded cases

Hardigg Industries was originally founded way back in 1954, and quickly became the largest and most successful manufacturer of rotationally moulded cases in the world.

Viewed as the main rival to Peli cases for many years, Pelican Products purchased the company in 2009 for a figure reported to be around $200 million.

The acquisition led to a creation of protective case manufacturer with more 1500 employees and 22 sites globally.

Heavy duty equipment cases

Hardigg’s speciality – the manufacture of rotationally moulded cases – earned them a reputation for offering the toughest, most advanced heavy duty equipment cases available.

Rotomolded cases typically have thicker material at the corners and edges with thinner walls. This combination means that their cases (and in particular the ISP2 and Single lid options) combine exceptional strength and durability with a relatively light weight. Their cases are used extensively by the US military as a result.

Typical features found on these Hardigg cases include reinforced corners and edges, moulded-in stacking ribs, comfort grip handles, positive anti-shear locks, recessed hardware and pressure control valves. They are also fully waterproof (IP68 rated) and Air transport association approved (i.e. cases exceed ATA Spec 300 Category 1).

Other Hardigg cases

This method of manufacture also lends itself to the creation of rack mount cases too. The 19” racks offered by Hardigg provide protection for specialist electronics and communications equipment, keeping them safe from dust, water and mishandling.

Before being purchased by Pelican products, Hardigg also developed the Storm case range. A rival to the Peli Protector line, Storm cases provide a perfect combination between cost, protection and aesthetics (being the waterproof cases that GWP would typically recommend).

Hardigg’s position and reputation for producing exceptional cases has gone from strength to strength under the ownership of Peli and, as such, are a great option for a huge range of industries and applications.

Hardigg Case FAQs

Frequently asked questions regarding Peli Hardigg Cases

The below section covers a number of commonly asked questions regarding Hardigg cases.

However, if you cannot find the specific information you need then simply get in touch – one of our cases advisers will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Are Peli and Hardigg separate companies?

Peli and Hardigg were rival manufacturers of waterproof equipment cases, with Peli more recognised for injection moulded options (such as Protector cases) and Hardigg for rotational moulding. However, in 2009, Hardigg was acquired by Pelican products.

What Hardigg cases are there?

The wider range of Peli cases incorporates various options. However, Hardigg branding is often still applied the companies range of rotomolded cases. This includes the Single Lid and ISP2 cases, as well as the range of rack mount cases. Hardigg also originally developed the Storm Case range.

Are Storm Cases made by Peli or Hardigg?

Storm cases are officially part of the Peli case range. However, they were originally developed by Hardigg, before becoming part of Pelican products in 2009.

Should I use a Hardigg heavy duty equipment case?

The Hardigg roto mold cases are arguably the toughest heavy duty equipment cases currently available. The moulding process creates exceptionally durable and hardwearing cases (with reinforced corners and edges as standard) making them ideal for even the most testing applications.

Are Hardigg just cheap Peli cases?

Hardigg cases are not cheap Peli cases. Typically, a Hardigg case will now be an extra tough, rotomolded case used for specific applications (such as heavy-duty shipping, military use etc.). If you require a cheap Peli case alternative, an option such as B&W cases may be more suitable.

What is a rotomolded case?

Rotomolded cases take their name from the manufacturing technique used to create them. This is where material is placed into a heated mould, which is them rotated, distributing the plastic across the surfaces of the mould. This can create cases which are exceptionally tough, and which have thicker corners / edges, and thinner walls.

What are rack mount cases?

Rack mount cases are designed to house specialist electronics or comms gear. Designed in standard sizes and heights (the “U” value given to these cases), they are widely used by armed forces throughout the world.
