A lightweight alternative to the plywood carcass construction of traditional flight cases. Offering up to 25% saving in weight, due to the honeycomb polypropylene panels used throughout the build.
Visibly, Astroboard cases are not really any different to their traditional cousins, but due to the lightweight panels used, there is a significant weight saving when compared to flight cases. Obviously, as the weight reduction is an advantage, this case specification deserves a little more respect, so is ideally suited to end-users and applications where heavy touring is not an issue! That said, if treated well, Astroboard cases will give many years service.
Up to 25% weight saving!
Astroboard cases have a shell constructed from honeycomb polypropylene. This panel is of 7mm thickness and is available in four colours…Red, Blue, Black and Grey. Whilst normally, Astroboard cases would be selected for small to medium-sized projects, various larger cases can be produced in this specification, such as LED screen cases. Due to the lightweight characteristics of modern LED screens, using an equally lightweight case construction is proving popular.
We have found that twin LED screen cases, up to 55″ are just about the largest size recommended for Astroboard cases. Pictured on the left is a twin Samsung 55″ case from the Astroboard range. Contact our sales team to discuss your requirements.
