CP Cases launches Airship™ – the most lightweight customised protective cases on the market
New product range is 50% lighter than the current market leader offering significant cost benefits for the handling and secure transport of delicate and sensitive equipment.
CP Cases has developed a new product range for the safe and secure transportation of secure comms, and other delicate “in the field” equipment. The new product range – Airship™ is 50% lighter than the current market leader and was developed in response to the continued market need to come up with better protective solutions, whilst offering significant improvements in lightweight cases. Airship provides a more cost effective solution for the transportation of military and security/surveillance/comms equipment for a multitude of rapid deployment applications in adverse field conditions.
Lightest weight, drop shock and vibration protective cases
Originally designed to meet the demands of the French Armed Forces – the combination of bonded layers of honeycomb polypropylene and rigid closed cell foam provide a featherweight block which is machined to exactly match the equipment to be protected. Once the pockets and weatherproof seal have been precisely machined, the lightweight block is securely anchored in a military specified, abrasion resistant rugged textile waterproof outer – which incorporates handles, webbing strap pull downs and weatherproof industrial zips. Hard shell cases were the hitherto traditional method of protecting valuable /sensitive equipment – where a heavy, hard outer container (ie; injection moulded case or flight case) with the additional internal sculptured foam pack had been used. Airship has turned conventional rugged case design thinking “inside out” – where the foam pack no longer requires a heavy, hard outer shell.
Fully accredited IP66 climatic protection
A unique feature of Airship is the weatherproof seal between base and lid, which is accomplished by routing the mating seal from the substrate closed call foam. This novel engineered weatherproof seal provides Airship with a fully accredited climatic seal to IP66 – ensuring equipment is protected against gale force winds and extreme rain, as well as being totally sand and dust proof. Airship is also scheduled for MIL STD 810G testing.
