Custom FRP Transit Cases — Unlimited Size and Customization

FRP Fiberglass-reinforced thermoset composite materials allow total design flexibility for military and industrial transit cases. FRP custom cases are the most complex designs and the largest transit cases manufactured by ECS. Complete in-house design and manufacturing result in superior cases from start to finish.

 

FRP cases and containers are designed and manufactured by ECS using proprietary FRP compression molding technology. High impact, lightweight, FRP composite components are epoxy bonded to heavy-duty aluminum extrusions. This fabrication method allows ECS to create extremely large transportable enclosures for oversized equipment.

 

FRP composite cases are the most durable custom military transit cases and enclosures anywhere. Since 1960, FRP composite cases have repeatedly proven their superiority ... from cases for portable test sets ... to EMI shielded workstations ... to one-of-a-kind containers for highly custom equipment. FRP custom cases allow endless design and performance possibilities.

Casters

Heavy-duty, two-inch wheels provide easy transport for even the most difficult of loads.

Custom Cushions

Individual cushion designs are created by ECS engineers to satisfy the shock and vibration protection requirements of each piece of equipment in an ECS case.

Hinges

We supply standard and custom fabricated hinges for many different applications. Most of our hinges are stainless steel, for which we can provide unique hole patterns and mounting features. 


■ Piano hinges are available in continuous lengths up to 48-inches. They are available in lightweight, medium weight, and heavyweight styles.
■ Take apart hinges slip apart to allow quick removal of lids and covers from cases.
■ Stay hinges can be supplied to hold hinged cases open.

Stacking Features

Anodized, extruded aluminum skid rails provide a wear surface for the bottom of FRP composite rackmount cases and also allow for enclosure stackability and case-to-case latching ability. Skid rails may be equipped with high-density polyethylene rub strips to eliminate abrasive wear. Low profile skid rails are used on 3000 series rackmount cases, and all other FRP composite rackmount cases are equipped with taller, standard height skid rails.

Skid Rails

TSC composite rackmount cases have molded-in stacking features, including optional Loadmaster stacking features to allow stackability with Loadmaster Rotomold Transit Cases. Other Rackmount cases stacking options include aluminum stacking feet mounted on the top of the case and extruded aluminum hat-section skid rails mounted on the bottom of the case. Stacking feet engage matching holes in the skid rails for secure case-to-case stackability and may be equipped with stainless steel locking pins, which ensure positive attachment. Locking pins can also be supplied with lanyards and stowage receptacles.
