Case Specifications

Flight case specifications are described here in more detail. From Lite-Flite and Arena, which offer reduced weight without compromising strength and durability, right up to Super Tour… the professional’s choice when it comes to the ultimate in strength and longevity. If you find it difficult to select the right specification for your flight case project, don’t worry… we’ll assist with your decision. Our sales and design team have many years of experience in not only case design but also case manufacturing.  Many of the design, quoting and sales team are ex-production operatives who have had experience in our flight case manufacturing, so know exactly which case specification to advise for your project.  Case Specifications are not to be confused with Case Styles but are a guide as to how the flight case is constructed, showing the different carcass thicknesses and materials as well as the various flight case hardware used.  Case Styles are not necessarily connected with specifications, but are a guide as to the layout of the case, such as trunks, racks, briefcase etc.

We have tried to make this section of the website as informative as possible but we cannot show everything…therefore we do suggest that if you are still struggling with all the specifications and styles, our sales and design team are just a phone call away on +44 (0)1945 427000.
