Can a case be extremely lightweight yet still be durable enough for transport via plane, train or perhaps an automobile navigating a Los Angeles freeway during rush hour? Can a case be stylish and sleek and yet still be able to handle a trek through the jungles of Brazil, a journey across the Sahara desert or perhaps an expedition to Antarctica? If it’s a Bel-Air hard plastic case with foam inside, it’s definitely equal to the task.
If you need a custom hard plastic case with foam inside, we have been the experts for more than 50 years. In fact, we are the first company to create vacuum-formed equipment cases. Our cases are durable, lightweight, affordable and each case is made-to-order, so you’re free to customize everything, inside and out.
The exterior of each case is formed using high-density polyethylene, a durable type of plastic known for its impact-resistance as well as its ability to repel moisture. Cases are joined together using hardy aluminum valances, another material known for its impact resistance and durability.
Of course, we’ve promised you a hard plastic case with foam inside, so let’s talk about the foam. Many case companies simply design a case and provide you with a large chunk of diced foam. Then you have to pick and pluck away the foam in order to create cavities to fit each component or piece of equipment you place in the case.
At Bel-Air Cases, when we build a hard plastic case with foam inside, we create custom foam inserts. This might be as simple as a basic foam liner or it might be a foam insert with multiple cavities, designed specifically to hold each piece of your equipment. We also can include interior doors, windows, panel mounts, shock mounts and plastic dividers for the case interior, depending on your needs.
We can create your hard plastic case using our standard colors of black or silver, and we have several optional stock colors, including blue, green, olive, white, yellow, orange and red. With a minimum purchase, custom colors and color matching may be available. We can further customize your cases with molded-in logos or perhaps with graphics, engraved plates or custom decals.
Of course, you also can customize the handles and hinges and latches or add wheels to your case and even a telescoping handle. While our cases are lightweight, a handle and wheels definitely make it easier to move through a crowded airport, navigate a busy urban street or trek across a huge convention center floor. There’s really nowhere you can’t go with a Bel-Air hard plastic case with foam inside.
Our heavy-duty carry cases, shipping cases and expo cases meet rigorous ATA specifications as well as many military specifications. We’ve designed cases to hold delicate medical equipment, lighting equipment and camera equipment, as well as musical instruments, super-secret classified government documents, sales kits and much more.
With new orders, we typically have a production lead time of about three to five weeks, depending on the order volume and the case options you have chosen. For a hard case with foam inside, it may add to that lead-time. To get started, you can give us a call or click on the Contact Us tab on our homepage, which leads you to our quick contact form. A helpful customer service representative will be in touch with you as soon as possible to talk about your custom case project.
