More Info on Zarges Cases

Market leading, German engineered aluminium cases

Zarges cases have been used by businesses and professionals throughout the world for more than 70 years. This includes industries and applications as diverse as media, motorsport, engineering, professional sport, and many others besides. They have even provided cases for transporting hazardous waste and, more recently, vaccines.

Put simply, Zarges are widely regarded as the leading aluminium case manufacturer.

Originally formed in 1933 in Stuttgart, Germany, Zarges initially found success with ladders and working platforms (products they still supply to this day).

However, their expertise in manufacturing using aluminium led them to create their first protective case range in 1950 – the Zarges K470 (which is still available and hugely popular today).

Zarges cases have, in the subsequent years, developed a reputation for innovative and ergonomic design, high quality, and durable construction.

Zarges cases have also been developed to satisfy a number of different requirements. This includes aluminum carry cases such as the Zarges K410 and K411 ranges, aluminium flight cases and transit containers such as Eurobox and the aforementioned K470, as well as specialist options for transporting hazardous goods.

All of this means that, if you are considering an aluminium case, Zarges has to be high on any list of potential options.

Why use Zarges aluminium cases?

Although prior expertise in using aluminium initially led Zarges into manufacturing cases and containers, the company realised that the properties inherent in this material leant itself perfectly to this application.

For example, Zarges cases manufactured using aluminium are extremely durable, sturdy, and hard wearing. Zarges cases can also withstand extremes of temperature, are weather and splash resistant (with fully waterproof options available) and boast excellent longevity.

Aluminium also has a very favourable weight / strength ratio, meaning the cases are lightweight and easy to handle whilst remaining strong and durable. Whilst this enables easy handling of the cases, other features such as ergonomic handles, catches and hinges all help here too.

Besides this, Zarges cases are also easy to clean (hence why they are used by sports teams including Premier League football clubs).

All of this makes Zarges cases a very attractive proposition for a wide range of industries and sectors.

Customising Zarges cases

Another benefit of Zarges cases is that they have a number of custom options available.

Whilst this includes many standard items – such as clip on castors, various locks, trolleys etc. – there are further options that can enhance both appearance and usability.

From an aesthetics point of view, it is possible to add all over paint colours, branding and logos. Usability can be enhanced with foam lining or – even better – custom foam inserts.

Zarges cases with foam inserts can not only aide organisation of tools and equipment, but can also significantly improve the protection offered to sensitive, delicate or expensive items too.

And finally, it is also possible to sources Zarges cases with the correct accreditation / test certificates for use in transporting hazardous goods (in accordance with UN regulations).
