Waterproof and impervious to humidity, sand and dust these cases are designed to withstand severe transport and handling conditions. The extensive range offers recessed latches and handles and user-friendly rounded corners, making handling even heavy cases a lot easier. Conforming to Airline standards (ATA 300 Cat1) as well as UK defence standards and US Mil specs these cases are standard issue for many of the worlds leading ENG/News Broadcasters.
Rotomoulding is a stress-free process using high quality polymer that thickens at the edges and corners for extra strength and impact resistance. Amazon ruggedised cases give all the advantages of rotomoulding but without the normal wasteful thick wall cavity, restrictive narrow top opening and bulky deep lid. They are stable in temperatures from -40 to +70°C and resistant to solvents and acids.
Moulded location features ensure that positive stacking is easily achieved, even when the optional wheels are fitted. A moulded-in lip in the lid engages with the base to eliminate sideways lid displacement. Heavy-duty, cushioned, plastic injection-moulded, sprung handles are inset into the sides. These each have an SWL of 100kg. An A5 label indent is positioned on the lid with two further, smaller, label indents for contents identification. All fittings, including catches, hinges and lid stay are stainless steel.
Optional accessories: Cases of 750mm in length and greater have provision for fitting two optional 70mm ‘roller blade’ recessed wheels. These robust wheels are fitted into the lower edge of the case, and are designed to come into operation immediately the case is tilted from the horizontal, but do not interfere with stacking or stowage.
Amazon cases are virtually airtight as standard. Valves can be fitted to allow equalisation of air pressure between the container and the external atmosphere whilst preventing the ingress of water and dust, although some humidity will be admitted. The 15-6962 pressure relief valves allow gradual equalisation of pressure, and have a manual release button to equalise the pressure when opening the case. The 15-6963 vent valve with Gortex membrane is water proof and dust proof to IP69K, and has high airflow capability. The humidity indicator shows relative humidity within the case. These three accessories will normally be fitted at the factory, but can be retrofitted in the field, requiring the use of tools to drill apertures in the case.
