The fragility of an item is determined by measuring the maximum
deceleration (rate of decrease in velocity over a measured period
of time) it can withstand without damage.
This measurement is expressed as "G's, and
the more fragile the item, the lower the G-Factor. As an example,
test equipment has a typical fragility range of 40-60 G's, whereas
an egg has a fragility approximating 60 G's.
Perhaps the most common misconception regarding
the use of cushioning materials in custom cases is that "you
can't have too much foam" , and nothing could be further
from the truth.
All foam materials are designed to demonstrate
specific cushion response values based on realized load weight
and the anticipated drop height.
Utilizing proprietary software, our custom case
designs are developed based on established cushion response values,
typical handling environments and the specific packaging criteria
of each case application, not on the availibility of stock case
sizes and configurations.
our approach to your requirements may be more technically involved
than most custom case manufacturers, there are no design fees,
and our minimum order is one.
In choosing to offer shipping case designs that
reduce the risks associated with your specific shipping and handling
environments, we prefer to be considered as a partner rather than
