Both large and small flight cases are available, making it easy to select the most appropriate sized enclosure for the item or items you need to protect.
Small Flight Cases
Small flight cases tend to be designed with both portability and protection in mind. This means that they are normally focused on convenience and comfort during journeys, as well as being built sturdily enough to withstand various types of impact, damage or ingress.
Small flight cases will also commonly feature some arrangement of foam inserts or padding. This is ideal for protecting less bulky items such as electronics and tools, as well as preventing the contents from moving around too much in transit, and potentially sustaining damage from knocking against the interior of the case.
These smaller cases are less commonly found with wheels attached, as their size usually does not warrant this addition. However, they will often include sturdy feet and a full range of security measures such as latches, locks and wrist straps. Handy briefcase-style options are also available for increased portability.
Large Flight Cases
Large flight cases are often chosen for shipping bulky, heavy or oversized items. They are available in a wide range of sizes and volumes.
Large flight cases are chosen for many different items of more cumbersome electronics, technology and heavy equipment. Particular models may be designed to fit anything from musical instruments and bulky tools right up to multiple server racks and mixing desks.
Key points to consider when looking to order large flight cases include:
- Sturdy handles and wheels
- Higher weight limits and carrying capacities
- Reinforced structural panels
- Secure locking or latching lids
- Retention strapping for added peace of mind during extended storage, shipping and baggage handling
