More Info on SKB MR Series Cases
Unique construction and wide range of features
With nearly all waterproof cases currently available being manufactured using either injection moulding or rotational moulding, it is unusual to see a case produced using vacuum forming (and process usually used for manufacturing trays). But the SKB MR Series uses this to great effect.
Utilising a high-density polyethylene, the vacuum formed cases feature moulded in bumpers for added protection from impact, as well as being strong, durable and hard wearing.
The manufacturing process also allows for the SKB MR Series cases to provide a number of features too.
For example, the cases include what are described as “roller blade” style wheels, alongside a telescopic, retractable handle to aid transit and usability.
Besides this, SKB MR Series cases boast heavy duty latches, spring loaded side handles, and integrated lid stays.
Only available empty as standard, you can also specify custom foam inserts if additional protection for delicate or expensive items is required.
