What GWP Protective customers say

Peli Cases, established since 1967, are both the original and best selling waterproof cases. In fact, Pelican recorded global sales of more than $400 million across their product range in 2015 – so why not join thousands of people already benefiting from the highest levels of protection?


02: Why Use Peli Cases?

Peli cases with foam inserts – the industry standard waterproof cases

Working alongside GWP Protective, you can customise a wide range of protective cases with engineered foam inserts, including the extensively used and market leading Peli Cases.

GWP Protective are one of the selected official UK distributors for the Peli Case range, offering you a market leading, IP rated waterproof case solution.

Peli has become renowned in the protective case industry for manufacturing the toughest products available – a reputation earned and enhanced over more than 3 decades.

The level of protection and quality offered by the Peli range of protective cases has made Peli the leading protective case for a broad selection of industries and professions.

In fact, the range has become so successful that it has led to the creation of other protective case brands (a number manufactured by Pelican themselves).

This includes the Peli Hardigg manufactured Storm Cases, Explorer cases and various products from SKB and Nanuk.

03: Pelican Case Features.

Protective cases that also offer exceptional usability

Pelican Cases are remarkably tough and hard wearing; constructed from a specialist, structural copolymer resin which is incorporated into the cases’ shell.

They also boast a wealth of features that makes them easy to use, reliable and ideal for a huge range of applications.

Every Peli Case features a pressure purge valve to allow equalisation (ideal if submerged or transported by aeroplane), has a neoprene “O” ring in the lid to ensure that the tongue and groove seal remains airtight and waterproof.

Peli cases also benefit from integrated hinges and handles that interlock to form part of the moulding. This makes them almost impossible to break.

Peli cases military
Peli cases are widely used in military applications due to their hard-wearing nature, plus extensive testing and certification

These features are complemented by an integral padlock facility, allowing contents to be kept completely secure when in transit.

Besides this they are IP rated, making them a truly dust-proof and waterproof case. This obviously lends them to a wide range of applications, and is also the reason their use is prevalent throughout the military and emergency services.

In fact, Peli Cases are so well known and regarded, that the name is often mistakenly given to other brands!

04: Custom Peli Case Options.

A wide range of inserts, options and accessories

The main benefit to your business of working alongside GWP Protective – when compared to other Peli case stockists and suppliers – is the level of customisation you can specify.

As well as providing the full range of colours and sizes, you can also select Peli bezel kits for mounting electronics in the lid and / or base, plus the entire range of accessories such as straps, organisers and divisions.

Pelicases can be enhanced with the inclusion of foam inserts - either the standard pick and pluck or high performance custom engineered Plastazote

However, gaining the highest level of protection will involve the creation of completely bespoke foam inserts, tailored to fit the both the selected Peli case and products to be stored or transported inside perfectly.

This can include creating exact levels of cushioning to eradicate damage and breakages to sensitive or fragile contents in transit, whilst simultaneously offering enhanced presentation, aesthetic appeal and providing ease of use for multi part tooling sets or equipment.
