Ergoline detailed buying guide

What are Ergoline Cases?

Plastic carry cases ideal for presenting samples

Being perfect for everything from salesman samples cases all the way through to protecting tools, models, toys and hobby equipment, the Rose Plastic range of Ergoline plastic cases are a good, light to mid duty option for most businesses.

The overwhelming benefit of lightweight plastic cases such as those in the Ergoline range is the cost, however.

Being extremely competitive when compared with the heavy-duty alternatives, it offers a truly cost-effective solution where the level of protection does not need to be quite so high.

Despite this, the injection moulded polypropylene construction of these carry cases ensures that they are still hardwearing and long lasting, ensuring they remain a long-term solution to a range of storage and transit requirements.

Finally, the attractive aesthetics of these plastic cases means they are ideal for use as sample presentation cases.

Used for salesmen samples and for presenting products either in a business to business or retail environment, their appearance ensures they will not look out of place at any important meeting or presentation.

Ergoline Case Features

Well thought out features to aid usability & improve appearance

It is not for nothing that Rose Plastic and their range of carry cases have developed a strong reputation. The range of features engineered into their cases makes them incredibly easy and convenient to use, whilst maintain a distinct and attractive appearance.

Please view the image below and accompanying notes for further details.

Ergoline Case Features

A Snap Shut Catches: The snap shut catches are well designed and integrated into the case, being very secure yet easy to use even after many operations.


B Surface Finish: The textured surface finish of the Ergoline cases provides a unique, attractive appearance that remains resistant to scuffing and is easy to clean


C Handle: The integrated handle is also ergonomically designed and comfortable to use, even if the case contains heavier items or equipment


D Label Area: There is also a smooth label area (that can be printed onto) which can be used for branding and / or instructions, that when coupled with the striking aesthetics ensures that these plastic cases will not look out of place at any business meeting or sales presentation


E Feet The moulded feet allow for the cases to be stood up vertically if required (please note the cases can also be safely stacked horizontally, i.e. led flat).


F Hinges Ergoline cases boast sturdy hinges which are cleverly integrated into the main body of the case, vastly reducing the possibility of them failing or becoming damaged.

Common uses for Ergoline cases

The construction and design of the RoseCase Ergoline means it is suited a number of specific applications, with the following providing a brief overview of the most common.

If you cannot see your intended use listed here however then please get in touch, for free, impartial advice on suitability.

Sales Rep Cases

Selecting a plastic sample case for your sales team can be important decision. The cases must be strong enough to protect the samples, large enough to showcase them well, whilst also carrying branding and projecting a professional appearance.

Ergoline cases are therefore a good option for use in this manner.

The only potential limitation of these case is their fairly narrow range of options in terms of colours, which can make matching some brand identities a little more difficult.

Retail Packaging

If you are intending to sell products in retail markets, then any advantage to be gained can be crucial.

This is why Ergoline cases are frequently used for “added value packaging”. What is meant by this is that your products are sold within a case – such as Ergoline – which can then be retained by the customer for storage of said item(s).

This can not only drive sales but can significantly increase the price consumers are willing to pay (and the perceived value they feel they are getting).

The branding options and transparent lids (great to see the contents before purchase) help this still further.

Ergoline cases are versatil enough to be used for a wide range of applications

Field Staff

Many businesses will have staff and operatives that are required to take equipment out on site.

This can be anything from very expensive diagnostic or metrological equipment (which is likely to require a heavier duty plastic case or a specialist waterproof option) to regular tool sets and equipment.

Ergoline cases are perfect for the lower end of this spectrum, where precise levels of protection are not required.

They offer good usability, large choice of size options, and when enhanced with foam inserts can improve productivity through better organisation of tools / parts too.


Ergoline cases are sometimes used for shipping semi fragile items. Typically used within a traditional outer corrugated box, Ergoline cases can be used with foam inserts to provide additional levels of protection for various items (think tools, specialist parts, components etc.) where damage caused by mishandling would cause significant problems.


Although GWP Protective are a B2B seller of cases, Ergoline cases are often used for hobbyist equipment such as models, collectibles, fishing tackle and bait, and many other similar pursuits.
