Whatever you need protected, AB Audio Systems can build a case to give it the best possible protection. As well as standard rack mount cases, with or without full suspension mounts, we specialize in custom designed cases for one-off projects.

All of our cases are built using 30mm double angle aluminium extrusion, this is a far superior construction compared to the simple “box” and single angle method.

We also use 9mm birch ply panels with a PVC textured finish applied in various colours as standard construction, although thicker panels can be used where extra protection is required.

Heavy duty hardware is used throughout, including recessed sprung handles, recessed butterfly catches, ball corners and 100mm castors.

Please contact us for more information on your case requirements.

Flightcase Manufacture

All of our cases are constructed using 9mm thick birch ply panels including a textured PVC laminate bonded to it in various colours. Another popular exterior finish we supply is Diamond phenolic faced ply.

Other thicknesses of panels can also be used if required.

These panels are fitted into 30mm aluminium “double angle” extrusion, forming the edges of the case.

Any lids or joins in the cases are trimmed with an aluminium hybrid lid locator extrusion. This helps with lid alignment of lift of lids.

All of the corners are accurately mitred and strengthened with exterior steel corner braces. 

There are many types and sizes of catches available to use on our cases. The most common is the Heavy duty, medium dish, recessed butterfly catch. The type used depends on the cases use and of course, customer preference.

All cases need handles. Surface sprung handles can be used, but the majority of cases are fitted with recessed sprung handles with nylon grips. Along with these, all recessed handles are fitted with a backing ring on the inside of the case to spread the load and prevent the handle from being ripped out of the case. The exact number and position of handles varies for every case.

Amongst other hardware used to finish the cases are heavy duty steel ball corners, Braked and non braked 100mm castors, Lid stays, Ply liners shaped for various equipment, a variety of foam linings and ply partitions.

As well as custom designed cases, we also supply standard “rack” cases for 19” equipment in various designs. One, Two or Three lid cases, Tray & cover racks, and for maximum protection, we can supply a fully suspended cage to mount your equipment to within the case.
