Drop Test
Units were loaded with weights (see list below) and dropped at different angles from a 6’-10” platform onto a concrete surface. Cases maintained their watertight integrity and remained closed. A small percentage (<10%) sustained broken tall rib. Tests were successful.

Handle Test
Repetitive impact test.  15 lbs of weight was added to each case.  Cases were then hung by their handle and given “jolt” tests.  Every 6 seconds, for 48 hours the cycle machine lifted and dropped each case. Neither the handle, the handle pin nor the case itself showed any signs of stress. 

 

Weight test. Cases were loaded with 75 lbs of steel, and hung by their handle for 60 hours. No stress marks were found in handle, pin, latches, hinges or any component of the case.
