    What GWP Protective customers say

    Originally, flight cases were designed based on an airplane parts packaging specification. Designed by airline packaging engineers, the ATA 300 Category I specification – agreed by Boeing, Airbus, Fed-Ex, American, United, Delta and others – specifies that cases are designed to withstand at least 100 round trips.

    04: Additional Advantages.

    Extra reasons to use custom built flight cases

    As flight case manufacturers, GWP Protective have no minimum order quantities so our clients can order anything from one-off, completely bespoke flight cases to several thousand per year.

    To enable short manufacturing lead times, we also carry a wide range of materials in stock, including catches, handles, hinges and various styles of panel materials.

    Case manufacturers
    Rather than being simple case manufacturers, GWP Protective have invested considerable resources in order to be able to offer your business a wide range of supporting services

    Another of the major benefits of GWP Protective’s service is that with both flight case and foam insert being manufactured under one roof, we provide a genuine “One-stop-shop” for customers with any form of protective case or packaging requirement.

    As such, our flight cases with foam inserts offer a truly bespoke level of performance. We are also able to manufacture flight cases with mechanisms for the housing of 19” rack-mounted electronic components.

    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.

    Custom case components
    There are a large number of components that make up a custom case, giving you even more control over the performance and appearance of the finished design

    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.

    However, and also unlike many other flight case suppliers, GWP can also provide you with the widest range of branded protective cases from a single supplier as well. This includes Peli, Zarges, SKB, Nanuk, Hofbauer, Explorer, Rose Plastic, Hardigg and many many more.

    What this means for you, is that you can be certain your business is getting the most suitable protective case for your specific requirements.
