RS Components has introduced a variety of new products to its storage portfolio, including the lightweight Peli Air case range and new RS Pro storage case options.
These polymer cases are designed to be tough and waterproof and provide excellent protection for a diverse variety of valuable and sensitive equipment, says the manufacturer. For example, the cases are suitable for use by broadcasters and photographers, storing sensitive military/defence equipment or transporting delicate electronics gear such as test equipment, as well as many other outdoor uses. Other potential market sector uses include maintenance, power, telecoms or the oil and gas industries.
The Peli Air range is especially suited to weight limited applications such as those found in logistics and transportation, says the manufacturer. The new rugged, watertight, dustproof, crushproof and wheeled cases complement the existing Peli Storm range, but have been designed to be up to 40 percent lighter than other polymer cases, while retaining their durability.
The Peli Air range has been made by moulding them from proprietary super-lightweight resin that rebounds without breaking, as well as designing honeycomb structural elements that are stronger than solid polymer material, claims RS Components. The cases feature double-throw latches, automatic purge valves to balance air pressure, and watertight O-ring gaskets.
The Air range sports a new style ‘conic curve’ shaped lid, stainless-steel hasp protectors and rubber over-moulded handles. It also uses the TrekPak system, which provides pre-installed wall sections, divider panels, locking pins and a fool-proof cutting tool so that engineers and other users can easily lay equipment in the case, measure and cut the divider sections, and lock them in place with the steel U-pins.
Also new at are two RS Pro storage product ranges including the RS Pro Aluminium and Transit Cases and the RS Pro Tool cases. Suitable for transportation and storage, the aluminium transit cases feature cast aluminium stacking locators on each lid corner making them simple to stack and inter-stack. Additionally, the cases’ ribbed body adds strength and the rubber seal in the lid makes them shower proof. The RS Pro Tool range includes a case with trolley that is suitable for mobile engineers and technicians. Consisting of an aluminium frame and high-impact ABS material, the cases are designed to protect tools from accidental shocks. They are also stackable, dustproof and waterproof.
