05: Flight Case Manufacturers.
Flight case manufacture and design process
With a highly skilled and experienced team of designers and production staff, we can design and create bespoke cases for almost any application.
By firstly creating a three-dimensional model using the latest design software, we can ensure that the protective case and foam inserts will be a perfect fit with our clients’ products before a finalised specification is sent to our production team.
The cases are then created at our Salisbury factory using either plywood (with leather textured, plastic or even aluminium layers) or one of several types plastic panels which are fabricated into a rigid structure using aluminium extrusion profiles and rivets.
We will then add a range of hardware, generally made from galvanised steel, which can include handles, locks, catches and castors.
Often, an “off the shelf” injection moulded case can offer a better option in terms of water-resistance and cost for a particular application, please talk to a member of our experienced sales team will be able to advise on the best solution.
Whatever your choice of case, GWP will then be able to further customise it with engineered foam inserts to create the optimum level of product protection against mishandling.
