Military & Aerospace


5 Star’s more than thirty five years experience in manufacture means every industry is catered for when it comes to designing and building a case.  And that includes Military and Aerospace applications.

High quality materials and hardware are always used throughout construction, which ensures piece of mind in hostile environments.  5 Star ‘Industrial’ specification cases are to IP54 as standard, with a dust and weatherproof mating profile between lid and base.  Many external finishes can be selected, including high pressure laminate (HPL), diamond board and stucco aluminium.  A polypropylene panel can be selected in place of the traditional plywood for a lightweight alternative.

Foam inserts also play a major part of Military case applications and our experience in the design and manufacture of these is key to any case project.  Three large format CNC routers are at the heart of 5 Star’s production facilities and these not only machine the case panels but also polyethylene foam inserts.

Anti-static Jiffycell™ foam is also available for use in electronics transportation.  Specifications on the available foam types that we can supply are available upon request, by contacting our sales team.

Most military cases will of course be bespoke to individual requirements and that’s where 5 Star excel at providing a first class service on case design, manufacture and a turnkey solution.

The IP67 range of cases are particular useful in military, aerospace and allied industries, due to their durability, lightweight and weatherproof characteristics.  A range of standard sizes is available but can all be customised with bespoke CNC-machined  foam inserts.
