Explorer Cases

Waterproof, moulded cases combining performance with visual appeal

Explorer cases are one of the most well established waterproof case brands in Europe and beyond. Designed and developed in Italy (which is reflected in their stylish appearance), they are widely utilised by both military and emergency services throughout the continent.

 

Offering exceptional levels of protection from water, dust, impact, shock and general mis-handling, the cases are also available with custom foam inserts to perfectly fit your products or equipment. Find out how they could aid your operations by getting in touch.

We initially chose to work with GWP due to their early support (including loan of samples), site visit and general discussions. This decision was vindicated through the lead times for final production and the quality of the products that were supplied to us.

Attractive waterproof cases with a strong heritage of military use

As one of the most popular protective cases on the market, GWP Protective are able to supply and customise the full range of Explorer Cases.

 

If you use an Explorer Case you can be certain that it will offer superb performance – being practically impossible to break, offering water and dust resistance, a wide range of interior options (including GWP engineered foam inserts) and much more besides.

 

Used extensively in a wide range of industries, including military, navy and avionics, medical, metrological, offshore and even professional photographic equipment and cameras, any technical, expensive or delicate item will be exceptionally well protected if transported or stored in an Explorer Case.

Applications and uses for Explorer Cases

The first hard-wearing moulded case to be designed and manufactured in Europe. Please see below for typical examples and applications of Explorer Cases. Click on the thumbnail for a larger image.

Customisation options & accessories

Of course, the real value that GWP Protective can add to these already great cases is through the wealth of customisation options we provide.

 

Being expert foam converters, we can create inserts that are a perfect fit for both the case and the item to be transported, including exceptionally intricate profiles that are captured digitally using the latest equipment.

 

Using the highest grade foams (including Plastazote), Explorer cases with GWP foam inserts can offer an unsurpassed level of protection.

 

Further to this, we can also enhance any Explorer case through a number of branding options. This can include laser etching the foam inserts with logos, instructions or identification, and doing the same with the exterior surfaces of the case through a range of printing and labelling options.

 

You can even specify the case colour – even a non-standard hue – if the order quantity is sufficient.

 

Besides this, due to the popularity of Explorer cases there are a wide range of accessories available that we can also include.

 

From divider sets to straps and even backpacks, the Explorer case range is exceptionally versatile, which makes it perfect for a wide range of applications.

Additional features & benefits

Being the first hard-wearing moulded case to be designed and manufactured in Europe, and as a true alternative to the Peli and Storm Cases, Explorer cases showcase their Italian heritage through an aesthetic appearance that is based on clean lines and understanding of attractive appearance.

 

However, using an Explorer Case provides much more than simply good looks. Being virtually unbreakable, and coming with a lifetime guarantee (an indication of how confident Explorer are in their protective cases), the cases have also been extensively tested for use in military applications. This includes:

 

  • IP67 rating (ingress protection rating against both water and dust)
  • Defence Standard 81-41 (part 3) issue 4
  • STANAG 4280 (edition 2)
