From the smallest analogue desks, up to the large-format digital consoles…5 Star can produce a flight case to suit all applications. With over thirty three years experience in the design and manufacture of professional cases, when it comes to protecting audio consoles and lighting desks, we have a solution.
Lighting desk cases are very similar to their audio cousins but with the latter, very often feature loom or ‘dog’ boxes for cable management and similarly, audio console cases are usually larger, so the specification tends to be higher, such as Heavy Industrial or better.
Loom or Dog boxes sit behind the console and act as a cover to shield the cable and connectors from view, whilst maintaining an neater visual appearance. Entry slots in each end of the loom box enable cables to pass through. They can be supplied with single or double hinged lid versions. We always try to make these loom boxes as visually appealing as possible, rather than just painted pieces of plywood. With our three large-format CNC machining centres, and a team that has years of experience in the design of console cases, the loom box and side cheeks will usually ‘blend in’ to the console itself.
In addition to the loom box, many other options are available with just about any console case. These include pull-out keyboard drawers, 19″ rack bays under the console and VESA TFT mount arms, not to mention PAL label dishes and casters. As Henry Ford once said, “…any colour, as long as it’s black”…doesn’t apply here! Choose from a wide range of stock colour options for the external finish and for that extra special touch, we can always match to RAL or Pantone™ colour (special order only). Along with our in-house screen printing facility, corporate branding and logos can be included for increased visual impact and added security
