Types of protective cases and transportation equipment
Within our range, you will find some of the best-known names in equipment transport, including Peli, Zarges, and Platt Luggage, plus our own value line of robust RS PRO transit gear. From foam inserts to padlocks and case organisers, we have a wide range of products to protect your equipment during transportation.
To help with selecting the product you need, some important considerations when buying transit and equipment cases online include:
Flight case material: The best flight case will depend on what you're transporting, and how. All transit cases protect materials during movement, but there's a reason they don't tend to be made from cast iron! Rugged yet lightweight construction is key - the most popular equipment transit products are often designed in sturdy plastics (polypropylene/PP, HDPE, Nylon or ABS), solid aluminium, or a combination of both.
Inserts and padding: Padding for flight cases is generally made from high-density foam - harder polyurethane (PU) for heavy objects, or softer polyethylene (PE) for delicate/irregularly shaped goods. Like good flight cases, these foams are highly durable and shock-absorbing, without adding excess weight. Some brands and models of case include foam inserts, and we offer an advanced selection of aftermarket padding to protect important materials for the duration of a trip.
Foam shapes and configurations to suit all manner of equipment and transit conditions include:
- Convoluted ('egg crate') foam - highly versatile; often used as lid foam to secure loose items
- Pick & pluck foam - pre-cut removable cubes, for creating custom fits
- Solid foam - appropriate for all packaging applications, and easy to cut to shape with a safety knife
Transit case accessories and spares: These might include reinforced flight case corners; various inserts, dividers and organiser trays; padlocks; strengthening framesets; pick boxes; tool panels; wheelsets and more.
