Flight case panels made of Foamlite® lightweight construction material
For very light and robust plastic flight cases
Whether for concerts, racing or trade fair construction: if high-quality equipment such as event technology, measuring instruments or medical devices need to be securely protected and transported quickly from A to B, robust and lightweight flight cases are required. Our flight case panels made of our lightweight material Foamlite® support designers in the manufacture of their plastic flight cases.
Foamlite® is a close-pored foamed plastic that combines low weight with high mechanical stability. Flight case panels made of Foamlite®:
are very light
very robust and durable
have a high-quality appearance
reliably protect valuable equipment and freight
Applications – flight case panels made of Foamlite®
Plastic road cases made of Foamlite® are suitable for all applications in which equipment and freight must be transported and protected safely and reliably. Typical application areas:
Trade fair construction
Special packaging, e.g. for artworks
Product range - Foamlite® flight case panels
Foamlite® flight case panels are available in many sizes, thicknesses and colours:
Sheet thickness: 6 - 30 mm
Width: up to 2000 mm
Length: theoretically unlimited
Surface: Surface grained on both sides with high scratch resistance possible
Characteristics – flight case panels made of Foamlite®:
Our lightweight material Foamlite® has a low density of only 0.65 g/cm³. Foamlite® flight case panels are almost 30 percent lighter than comparable plastic compact sheets. This means that plastic flight cases made of Foamlite® are very easy to handle and easy to transport.
Foamlite® flight case boards offer a high degree of mechanical stability. Flight cases made of Foamlite® reliably protect valuable equipment from damage in the event of shocks and bumps and have a long service life.
High UV and weather resistance
Foamlite® has high UV and weather resistance and high resistance to moisture. This makes plastic flight cases made of Foamlite® flight case panels suitable for permanent outdoor use.con-temperaturbestaendigkeit
Foamlite® flight case panels are available with a smooth or double-sided grained surface with high scratch resistance. This gives plastic flight cases made of Foamlite® a long-lasting high-quality appearance.
Low maintenance - high purity
Foamlite® is very easy to clean with commercially available cleaning agents and requires very little maintenance. Foamlite's® closed-pore foam core does not allow any material to penetrate the pores. Compared to conventional materials used in the market such as wood or multiplex boards, Foamlite® offers many cleanliness and hygiene advantages for building cases. Commercially available wood laminates with paintwork or coatings can quickly scratch and absorb moisture and dirt. This can lead to swelling and rotting.
Flight case panels made of Foamlite® can be processed very easily with common woodworking tools. This makes it easy to produce flight cases in different sizes and thicknesses for different requirements. Aluminium profiles can be securely fastened with rivets and screws.
Röchling impressed us with its Foamlite® material. For us as a manufacturer, this opens up additional perspectives in new markets.
