PLABER HPRC CASES - Stands and tripods
These High Performance Resin Cases, made in Italy and constructed from Plaber's proprietary TTX01 compound, offer 'exceptional resistance to shock, corrosive substances, water, dust and weather'. The HPRC 6000 series have a semi-cylindrical cross-section, and are especially suited to long, thin items. The basic case is supplied empty and can be customised either with cubed foam or with dedicated tripod kits, intended to suit professional video tripods, with or without heads. HPRC cases are used by photographers, broadcasters, emergency services, police forces and the military for transport of sensitive equipment.
The TTX01 compound is based on polypropylene and balanced with additional high-performance resins to make the cases lighter and stronger. Cases have reinforced corners, rubberised, ergonomic handles and two-stage catches. Neoprene o-rings give protection to IP67 and 'Airex' automatic purge valves that allow the exchange of air between the inside and outside yet prevent the entry of sand and dust. Hardware is stainless steel, wheels are made of PA66 nylon and polyurethane, handles polypropylene and SEBS polymer and latches are PA 66 Nylon. They are rated for temperatures from -40 to +80 degrees C. Approvals include: ATA 300, IP67, STANAG 4280, DS 81-4.
Several models are available; all have wheels at one end of the base, with a handle at the other end. A second handle is fitted to the lid. All have the same semi-cylindrical cross-section.
Notes: (1); l x d x h, laid flat, mm. (2); empty, kg.
Optional accessories: Cubed foam; Two blocks of cubed foam, one each for the lid and the base. The cubed foam may be 'plucked' by hand to provide tailored housings to suit the shape of the equipment. Tripod kit; this provides protection for both ends of a video tripod, even when fitted with a fluid head, and straps to secure the tripod within the case. Shaped padding is fitted to both halves of the case at both ends and two 'hook and loop' straps are fitted in the middle section, using self-adhesive 'hook' tape.
