Military, Defence & Aerospace Protective Solutions

Those working with commercial and military vehicles or aircrafts will understand how critical it is that tools are kept safe at all times and that any important equipment is protected whilst travelling.

Particularly within these industries, equipment and tools will need to be transported overseas, so it’s critical that a protective solution is available to protect these materials from water damage, shocks, and potential security breaches.

With one of the broadest ranges of bespoke interior solutions on the market, we are confident that we have a custom solution to suit you. In this blog, we identify how those working in the military, defence and aerospace can benefit from using a protective solution from PottertonPacs, with our excellent choice of protective cases and bespoke custom cut foam solutions.

Smarter Inventories

Tool control is a method used to check that all tools are accounted for after being used for servicing or maintenance, making it much easier and convenient when carrying out a tool inspection or inventory.  This works by having custom foam cut-outs of a piece of equipment which is bespoke cut to your exact needs, meaning that your tools and equipment have their own designated slot within a protective case.

As tools, machinery and general equipment are highly used in the military, defence and aerospace industries, it’s critical that tool control is used in order to keep tools and equipment all in one place and accounted for when inventory checks take place. This makes it easier for quick identification if any tools are missing and are used to locate and control tools or instruments in critical environments. 

Tool control foam also protects equipment by cushioning your tools to prevent them from becoming damaged in-transit or from major drops and falls, as the foam is custom cut to fit your exact tools, rather than one-size-fits-all. This means that your tools and equipment can benefit from maximum protection and are never left behind whilst you are travelling.

If you have read our recent blog on Preventing FOD, Reducing Injury and Increasing Efficiency, you’ll understand that tool control can be added to any of our protective solutions and can be used to assist aerospace and aviation professionals with preventing foreign object damage and injury whilst increasing efficiency throughout.

Industry Approved

Peli cases are used widely in these fields, so there’s no surprise to hear that they are industry approved and meet Nato European standards after there were awarded the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) certification.

In order to achieve this certification, each Peli case is required to undertake and successfully pass endurance and quality tests to check the cases are suitable as protective solutions. This includes checks for resistance, high impact, vibration, low and high temperatures, moisture and sensitivity.

Water Protection

Particularly in the military environment, there is always a possibility of equipment becoming damaged by water. As you may expect, water damage can be very costly to repair or in most circumstances, even replace.

Protection against all weather conditions is critical, particularly as military, defence and aerospace environments are often very varied, unexpected and sometimes extreme. Even a small amount of water can make the difference between equipment being fully functional or not working at all.

With this in mind, you might like to consider investing in a waterproof protective case to protect your equipment from the odd splash of water or from being submerged in deep water, which can be a possibility depending on which industry you work within.

Shock Protection

The military, defence and aerospace industries can be particularly fast-paced, so it’s important that your equipment and tools are protected from any instance of impact, such as a collision, drop, bang or knock.

Equipment must be cushioned when in transportation by a soft material which surrounds the equipment and protects it from any day-to-day impact as well as more significant impact which is to be expected from a military, defence or aerospace environment. In particular, our Peli cases provide total protection in virtually any situation, making the brand one of the most popular choices for overseas adventures.

Unbreakable and Robust

The moulding in Peli cases has been designed to make the cases virtually impossible to break which is ideal for rough and impetuous handling, which is supported by the purposely-designed moulding of the case.

All Peli and Storm  cases are also supplied with a manufacturer’s lifetime guarantee, meaning that you can be sure that you’ll be able to get unlimited usage of the case.

Security and Protection

In the unlikely event of the case ending up in the wrong hands, the Peli case can be equipped with an optional key locking padlock or combination lock meaning that only those who know the combination will be able to gain access.TSA 

With the combination lock being Travel Sentry Approved (TSA), the lock can only be opened with the combination or by those working in aviation security, making it the perfect protective solution for those working within aerospace.
