Detailed information on Smart Cases

The Smart Case custom built case option has been created with durability, style, and weight reduction in mind.

Unlike most sample cases (including the plastic carry case ranges), Smart Cases are made to order – meaning there is a huge range of options available to you. This includes panel colours, a wide range of fittings, interior furnishings (including of course foam inserts) and printing of logos and branding onto the exterior.

But perhaps the main benefit of Smart Cases is that the manufacturing process allows an infinite dimensional range due to the multi-panelled design. Effectively, you can have a Smart Case manufactured to the exact size you need, avoiding having to select the “next best” option.

The result is a case that is stylish and aesthetically pleasing, whilst still being durable enough to withstand all but the very roughest handling.

The resulting difference in weight is also surprising – being exceptionally light whilst retaining a high degree of strength and durability.

Smarter protection and presentation for your samples and products

With aesthetic appearance being of paramount importance for any presentation of products, GWP Protectives’ expertise with foam conversion ensures that the interior of any Smart case you source will provide the optimal display of any of your products or components.

Using the latest software ensures that the profiles cut into the foam are a perfect fit for your products, giving a tidy, professional appearance, whilst also providing excellent protection.

You can also choose different colours of foam to match your brand guidelines, whilst adding logos, part numbers and branding through a laser etching service.

This is of course in addition to the branding options for the exterior, which includes screen or digital printing of logos, graphics etc.

All this adds up to mean that Smart cases are a great option for your sales team to present samples during important pitches and client meetings.

Smart Case FAQs

Common Questions regarding Smart Case

If you are not sure where to start with sourcing custom built cases such as Smart Case and N Case ranges, then the below questions may prove useful.

Who manufactures Smart Case?

Smart cases are manufactured in house at GWP Protective’s production facility in Salisbury, Wiltshire. This allows for complete control over the quality, sizing and any specific options required.

What sizes are available?

The main USP of Smart cases is that they can be tailored to the sizes that you need. Although very small and larger cases are not possible (for large Smart Case requirements we would recommend a traditional flight case), selecting a bespoke size can mean a perfect fit for your items and no wasted space.

Are Smart cases waterproof?

Due to the nature of their construction, Smart cases provide only a moderate level of resistance to water (and dust) ingress. If you need a case that is completely watertight, you can choose from a wide range of moulded waterproof cases, or the custom built EXOCase system.

Can I brand my Smart cases?

It is possible to add printed branding to any of the exterior panels of your Smart cases. This can be either traditional screen printing for simple logos, or digital for more complex designs. The surfaces are also ideal for affixing labels and vinyl graphics too.

Is it possible to add foam inserts?

Any Smart case you specify for your business can be enhanced with custom foam inserts (or indeed foam lining). Foam inserts can be tailored to your brand colours, the individual products and / or samples, and the exterior case. The foam can even be tailored to offer an exact level of protection for your items as well.
