How to decide which protective case is the ideal solution for you

Choosing the case that is right for your business or specific application can be a daunting task.


Whilst GWP Protective allows you to source the widest range of protective cases from a single (independent) supplier, this level of choice can further complicate matters.


However, by considering what is the most important factor when considering what you need from the case, you can quickly narrow down the suitable options.


These most typical 4 factors are as follows:


  • The items / equipment inside cannot break under any circumstances
  • The case must be light in order to minimise shipping / aid handling
  • The aesthetics and appearance of the case are critical
  • The case(s) must be the lowest cost reasonably possible


Please note however that this list is not exhaustive, so if you have a specific query or need help in finding the perfect protective case for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please email or call 01722 416 440.

Protective cases to guarantee prevention of damage

If it is absolutely critical that your equipment, tools, or products cannot be broken, then usually the range of “waterproof cases” are the most suitable option.


Offering the highest level of protection of any case on the market today, all of the cases GWP Protective recommend are completely waterproof (IP 67 rated), crush proof, resistant to impact and also offer cushioning protection thanks to the optional foam inserts.


As a result, each of the waterproof protective cases you can specify comes with a manufacturers lifetime guarantee! So in the unlikely event you break your case, it can be repaired or replaced for free.

Protective cases

However, besides “physical” damage, these cases also protect from both dust and water ingress.


As anyone using electronic equipment or highly calibrated tools or devices on a regular basis knows, water can easily destroy an item causing delays and considerable expense.


As a result, these cases are particularly popular for applications such as tool hire, on-site service engineers, surveying and metrology, plus industries including automotive, aerospace, marine and any engineering sector.

Lightweight protective cases for shipping / ease of handling

If you are exporting goods overseas or are travelling with lots of equipment by air, the lightness of aluminium cases could be a critical factor.


Whilst maintaining high levels of protection and being resistant to rust, using aluminium cases (including the Zarges range) can significantly reduce transit costs through minimising the weight of your consignment.


This makes them particularly popular for exporters, but also expeditions and even professional sports teams.


Besides this, the weight of a case can impact how easy it is to handle.


For smaller sized protective cases, the aluminium options are ideal thanks to their lightweight material and construction.


However, with larger cases where the contents can add to the weight considerably, moulded waterproof cases or even custom built cases can be a more sensible option.


This is due to the inline wheels and telescopic handle on certain cases, which means they can be easily pulled along instead of being carried. And of course, with custom cases, castors, handles and other features can also be added as required.

What protective case to choose if appearance is important

Put simply, if you are trying to make an impression on potential clients or even existing customers, there is only one choice – presentation cases.


Also referred to as sample cases, these usually plastic cases are designed with aesthetics in mind. Whilst this means that do not offer such robust protection as waterproof or aluminium cases, this not an issue as they would not be exposed to such environments or use.

Salesman sample cases

Sample cases can also be easily enhanced. They usually feature printable surfaces to add company branding and straplines, whilst foam inserts can be tailored to enhance the presentation of your products.


It is also possible to specify custom built presentation cases, such as the N Case and Smart case range. These can be tailored to almost any size, with a wide range of additional options too.


This makes sample cases perfect for sales pitches, tradeshows, presentations and client meetings.

It’s all about cost!

If you are looking for a protective case and the most important factor is the price, then the range of lightweight plastic cases are the ideal solution.


Whilst still offering good resistance to moisture and rain, plus dust, being dropped and general mishandling, the cases are a low cost option if the items to be stored inside are fairly robust themselves.


As a result, they also make great presentation cases, are frequently used for value added packaging (e.g. sending tools or parts to your customers) and can even be used in conjunction with larger cases to form service “kits”.

Sales presentation cases

However, it is important to bear in mind focusing on costs can be a false economy.


Sometimes, whilst a case may be of a higher unit cost than alternatives, by reducing damage in transit (plus the cost of replacements, returns and the negative impression for your customers) they can in fact offer overall cost savings.
