UK Supplier of Lightweight Waterproof Cases

The protection of Peli cases, but up to 40% lighter!

A criticism of some of the waterproof cases currently available is that they can be somewhat bulky and heavy – yet this is not something which could be said of Peli Air cases.

Using an advanced material, clever engineering and more than 4 decades of expertise in manufacturing cases, Pelican have engineered the Peli Air range to be as much as 40 percent lighter than comparable injection moulded cases. All of this is achieved without sacrificing strength, features or performance.

More Info on Peli Air Cases

The lightest waterproof equipment case option

Of course, the key advantage of the Peli Air case is the much-vaunted weight reduction, with cases being as much as 40 percent lighter than equivalent waterproof equipment cases. But how has this been achieved?

Firstly, an advanced HPX resin material (the next generation of Peli’s patented copolymer) is incredibly lightweight by default (and, crucially, rebounds without breaking if suffering impact etc.).

This material is coupled with truly ingenious engineering. Peli Air cases make use of honeycomb structural elements which, as well as being lighter, are actually stronger than solid polymer material. Super stiff “full box” sections are also included to create further hollow parts to minimise weight, whilst structural waste has also been reduced.

The result is a protective case that offers all of the protection expected from a Peli case (and performance wise is nigh on identical to the Peli Protector and Storm Case ranges) but that is considerably lighter and easier to handle.

To prove this, Peli Air cases have undergone extensive testing, including drop tests (1 metre onto concrete), being submerged (1 metre for 20 minutes) and falling dart impact.

Features to match performance

Beside exceptional performance, another thing that Peli cases are renowned for is their great usability. This is something that hasn’t been neglected on Peli Air cases, even with the focus being on weight reduction.

The same two step latches as seen on Protector cases are used, as is the watertight O ring gasket and automatic pressure purge valve.

Rubber over moulded handles are also incorporated, meaning that even if your case is loaded with heavy  kit, the handles will not become uncomfortable or cause marking on your hands.

Other improvements include stainless steel padlock protectors (making it virtually impossible to cut open locked cases) and a new polycarbonate card holder.

The other noticeable differences when compared with other Peli Cases is the “conic curve” lid design, which has been designed to aid placement in overhead storage compartments. It also provides a striking appearance too.

And finally, Peli™ Air cases offer both long and deep variations that are not available in the Peli™ Protector™ case range. Peli Air long cases also offer three new deep case designs that are 45% deeper and 40% lighter.

Peli Air FAQs

Frequently asked questions regarding Peli Air cases

Thinking that a lighter, waterproof Peli Air case could benefit you or your employees? Interested in the unique sizes available? Or simply have questions regarding this range of cases?

The below section covers a number of frequently asked questions when considering the use of Peli Air cases. Alternatively, if you cannot see the info you need, please get in touch.

Are Peli Air cases actually lighter?

Peli Air cases really do weigh less – being as much as 40% lighter than some comparable waterproof cases. This is achieved through an advanced HPX resin, whilst also minimising overall material use

What are Peli Air Cases made from?

PelI Air cases are manufactured using an advanced HPX resin unique to Peli. This is not only light in weight when compared with standard polypropylene or other material used for injection moulded cases, but will also rebound with breaking or shattering under impact.

Are PelI Air available in the same sizes as the Peli Protector range?

Whilst some of the Peli Air cases sizes are the same and / or very similar to the Peli Protector range, there are a number of sizes unique to this range. There is a range of 16 sizes in total to choose from.

What is a “conic curve” lid?

The conic curve refers to the shape of the lids on the Peli Air range. The way the lid is shaped not only creates a unique and attractive appearance, but also allows for easier storage in overhead compartments of aircraft (the smaller cases are ATA approved as carry on cases).

What colour Peli Air cases are available?

Peli Air cases are available in black, yellow, orange and silver as standard. A blue and maroon red / burgundy colour are also available on specific sizes / options.

Can I add foam to Peli Air cases?

Any Peli Air case can be enhanced in a number of ways. Whilst this includes padded dividers and pick n pluck foam, you can also specify fully bespoke, engineered foam inserts that will be precisely tailored to your products or equipment.

Buy Peli Air Cases

Official UK supplier of Pelican cases

GWP Protective have been supplying waterproof cases with foam – including the Peli case ranges – for more than 25 years.

As an independent supplier, it has allowed us to become official resellers of a wide range of protective case options, including those from SKB, Nanuk, Hardigg, Explorer and many others.

Whilst some may feel this could potentially cause confusion – it does mean there is a huge range of cases to choose from – it actually has a number of advantages. This includes being almost guaranteed to find a case which is perfectly suited to your requirements, and also being able to ask for completely impartial and unbiased advise on the best option for you.

Saying that, GWP are more than just another protective case supplier.

As one of the UK’s largest foam converters, you can also source any foam inserts you require at the same time as the outer case. This reduces costs and improves the fit, compatibility, and quality.

As such, if you are considering Peli Air cases (or indeed any of the other Pelican case options) for use at your business, GWP should be your first port of call.
