Case Hire - flexible terms from UK's flight case manufacturers
Even the most professionally-run company knows that the inevitable happens. You’ve specified a project and as it’s just about ready to be loaded, you find a shortfall of flight cases to pack the last few items of equipment. It’s too late to have anything built and the budget doesn’t really warrant purchasing new flight cases. Well, that’s where 5 Star’s Case Hire can help!
Whether it’s a general-purpose road trunk, 19″ rack or a drawered production case, our Hire stock is the ideal choice for a short-term solution. We’ve started the Hire Stock with a selection of popular flight cases including two sizes of Eurotrucker road trunks, Cable trunk, three sizes of 19″ racks and two versions of Drawered Production Racks, which are all fitted with PAL label dishes. Details of these can be found below.
As every hire will be different, based on quantity, duration and location, our sales team will submit an individual quote upon request. View or download the Case Hire Leaflet and pricing by clicking here, or the image on the right.
Eurotrucker – General Purpose Road Trunk
Probably the most popular road trunk available, the Eurotrucker has been manufactured by 5 Star for more than twenty years and will prove invaluable for equipment protection and handling.
Our Case Hire stock has two versions, the full-size (1200) and the ‘Half’ Euro (600), both of which are built to Super Tour Grade specification featuring a stacking facility and PAL label dish.
Removable trays and dividers are also available, which are a handy option for keeping all those smaller accessories in one place.
Wardrobe Trunk is an ideal solution for transporting and even displaying garments and accessories including workwear, sportswear and motorsport race suits. Featuring a hinged double-body design with four 400mm deep drawers for accessories and two hanging rails.
Vent dishes are fitted to ensure good airflow in the flight case when in transit. Eight casters make easy handling. A PAL dish is also included, so that hire information can be applied to tour labels (label not included).
For standard rack-mounted equipment, these 19″ Racks based on the popular Industrial specification ‘555’ range are available in three sizes – 4u, 8u and 16u. Body depth is 550mm nominal and internal door depth is 61mm.
The 16u version has 4″ heavy-duty casters fitted to the base, whilst the 4u and 8u have stacking glides and can also be stacked on top of the 16u version.
Front and rear, punched rackstrip is fitted as standard, as well as a PAL label dish.
19″ 12u Server Rack
For 19" rack-mounted servers, this Tour Grade specification extra-deep body rack is available in 12u height, which should suit most server configurations. Body depth is 800mm nominal and internal door depths are 85mm.
The inner plywood rack sleeve is shock-mounted by means of eight heavy duty rubber dampers, which gives additional protection to fragile server equipment.
To aid handling 4″ heavy-duty casters are fitted to the base, two of which are braked.
Front, rear and intermediate punched rackstrip is fitted as standard, along with four pairs of support brackets. A PAL label dish is also included.
Drawered Production Racks
Two styles of Drawered Production Racks are available from our hire stocks. ‘Style B’ features five pull-out drawers (2 x 60mm, 2 x 140mm and 1 x 200mm internal depth), with a hinged single door layout. ‘Style 3’ has the addition of a top hinged lid, as well as a hinged front door.
The top lid features twin gas struts and a handy work-surface. Both styles include heavy-duty 4″ casters for easy handling and useful compartments in the front door for accessories.
In the external colour range section you’ll find the various colour options and panel finishes. That can be applied, to compliment your corporate identity. And don't forget, most flight cases can include branding by means of screen-printed and CNC-engraved logos, adding not only visual impact but also additional security.
