With rising fuel costs, each pound of casing material means a pound less of vital equipment that can be transported. Lighter weight cases means more valuable gear can be loaded when necessary
Grants Pass, Oregon (PRWEB) October 24, 2008
ECS' Carbon Fiber and Carbon/KEVLAR rackmount cases are extremely light weight and demonstrate exceptional structural rigidity. Military equipment contains unique performance and weight requirements. These new cases fit a variety of military applications including the need to be water tight, sealed from sand and dust and shock mounted.
"By using ECS' new Carbon Fiber/Kevlar case we were able to reduce our case weight by 45% and meet MIL Spec 810F," comments Jake Allen, Research & Development at Insitu Inc. "Also, the look and durability of the Carbon Fiber/Kevlar case compliments our new Integrator UAV perfectly."
Virtually any type of equipment can be protected because the cases can be made in almost any size and individualized internal cushion design can satisfy the shock and vibration protection requirements of each piece of equipment that is stored.
"With rising fuel costs, each pound of casing material means a pound less of vital equipment that can be transported. Lighter weight cases means more valuable gear can be loaded when necessary" stated Joe Gran, Vice President of Sales for ECS. "These cases are totally unique in the industry and allow military personnel ultimate flexibility to transport mission critical equipment."
Carbon Fiber and Carbon/KEVLAR rackmount cases can be compression molded by ECS in a variety of wall thicknesses to meet unique performance/weight requirements for military equipment. Additional layers of carbon fiber and/or optional ballistic reinforcement materials can provide enhanced performance characteristics for challenging applications.
