Lightweight rotationally molded cases
Torrance, California – To ease the burden of logistics professionals, Pelican Products, has introduced the Pelican-Hardigg Light Lift Series rotationally molded cases.
• The advanced material used to build Pelican-Hardigg Light Lift series cases makes them up to 30% lighter than traditional rotationally molded cases, which means considerable logistics savings with less manpower and resources required.
• The new Light Lift case family is geared toward two- or four-man carry applications with a maximum 300 lb gross payload (total of case and content weight).
• Pelican-Hardigg Light Lift Series cases offer the same protection and pass the same rigorous MIL-SPEC testing as traditional Pelican-Hardigg rotationally molded cases.
• The line includes 28 of the most popular Pelican-Hardigg single-lid case sizes with 122 more sizes scheduled to be introduced throughout 2020.
All Pelican-Hardigg Light Lift Series cases are fully configurable with an initial offering of seven of the most popular colors. Remaining colors are due for release in 2020.
The cases feature popular catch and strike hardware to tightly secure the lid and recessed handles to prevent shearing or snagging from outside forces. Additional available configurable hardware options include plastic or metal handles, airtight construction using PRV valves, edge casters, locking hardware, and humidity indicators.
Cushioning and protection solutions range from layered foam cushions to extremely complex metal work, to g-force-rated shock mount systems and fabricated frame systems. The systems are designed to protect the equipment in all types of transport situations and assure it operates as designed.
Rotationally molded cases are created by loading structural grade plastic resin into a series of molds which are heated and slowly rotated on both a vertical and horizontal axis. The result is a seamless base and lid (with more material in the corners and edges) that offers superior impact protection. Pelican’s regional Advanced Case Centers are in California, Massachusetts, and Virginia, and offer a full slate of protective solutions.
