CUSTOM FOAM

Custom Case Foam

Protecting fragile and vital equipment can often be accomplished using custom-cut foam fitted to your equipment. The correct foam must support the mass load and still cushion sensitive equipment from impact forces. There are numerous foam properties that influence foam selection from anti-bacterial foam, which is helpful for preventing mold growth in humid environments, to anti-static foam which protects delicate electronics.

Pelican Products, Inc is proud to have pioneered many processes for the correct use of foam in technical packaging. More than 40 years ago we developed the original “Fragility Curve” table, still in use around the world today.

 

Not all foam is created equal. To see all foam properties:

Fabricating Custom Foam Parts

Pelican’s Case Centers are equipped with state of the art equipment for reliable, uniform foam parts. Computer controlled high speed water jet cutters rapidly produce precision “gang run” parts from foam sheets up to 8 feet wide. Pelican technicians use a variety of adhesives and raw materials to assemble layered foam parts into a single unit for the ultimate in equipment protection. From 25 foot long helicopter blades to micro-surgery instruments, we’ve seen it all.

Cradle Suspension Systems

Shock from drops and vibration can be detrimental to electronics and sensitive equipment. Our cradle suspension systems are custom designed to mitigate these harmful forces. Pelican engineers can design custom solutions to protect equipment from shock and impact down to 15Gs.

Heavy or extremely fragile equipment sometimes requires fabrication of custom deck mount suspension systems. Pelican’s machine shop is world-class, with punch press, metal CNC, certified welders and finishing services demanded by the aerospace, defense and medical industries.

Pelican Air Cases

Up to 40% lighter than other polymer cases, Pelican™ Air cases will lighten the loads of the dedicated pros around the world who have set out to change the game.

Pelican™ Air case are the first in a series of remarkable innovations engineered by Pelican, the pioneers of protective cases. For over 40 years Pelican has designed and crafted the most influential protective cases in the world, and we’re just getting started.

The Science Behind Strength and Lightness

The Pelican™ Air case has been designed to cut weight without compromising durability.

Our engineers have revolutionized the protector case by reducing structural waste while preserving Pelican’s legendary standards of strength. Here are some important reasons why Pelican™ Air cases are both strong and light:

  • Molded from the next generation of Pelican’s lightweight HPX™ resin, a proprietary formula that rebounds without breaking
  • Honeycomb structural elements that are actually stronger than solid polymer material
  • Super-stiff «full-box» sections engineered to create hollow parts

Up to the Test

It wouldn’t be a Pelican™ case if you couldn’t sink it, drop it, or kick it — and the Pelican™ Air case is no different.

  • Drop-tested on concrete with loads from six feet on all sides and corners
  • Submerged for 20 minutes at a depth of one meter
  • Wheels are roll tested over 914 meters
  • 28 lbs (12.7 kg) steel dart dropped on all sides from one meter

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Since 1976 our original Pelican™ Protector Case line has grown to over 60 unique sizes, but that is still not enough. Pelican™ Air cases offer both long or deep variations you won’t find in our Pelican™ Protector™ Case line. Now you can get the perfect fit.

We’ve complimented our long cases with three new deep case designs that are 45% deeper and 40% lighter.

Now you can protect more gear without breaking a sweat.
