When you and your products or equipment travel on a daily basis, you will most certainly need assurance your items will not be picking up any transit damage during transportation. At PottertonPacs, we understand and have the answer you’re looking for – plastic carrying cases with foam inserts. Regardless of the value of the items, you need to carry around, a plastic case is an assured investment and an excellent addition to your business essentials.
4 Benefits of Plastic Cases With Foam Inserts
Plastic presentation cases are an ideal solution for packaging, storing, and transporting your sample products, demo kits or equipment.
Adding custom-cut foam inserts to your choice of plastic case is a great way to ensure that your product or demo sample kits or equipment will be adequately protected during transit. Further, customise with the addition of your company logo and raise brand awareness and recognition while helping your sales reps remain organised during their product presentation.
Let’s explore some of the advantages of adding a plastic case to your packing list.
- Made from lightweight and environmentally neutral materials
A significant advantage of plastic cases is their lightweight because of the materials that are used in their construction. They are made of environmentally friendly polypropylene plastic and feature moulded integral carry handles, strong metal pin hinges, and independent secure latches.
Designed to be reliable and flexible, plastic cases with foam inserts can offer a perfect way to protect the broadest variety of items. With a strong and solid appearance, plastic cases do not add a lot to the overall weight of the items to be transported, making them an ideal alternative to the heavier alternative cases such as Peli Cases or Flight Cases which are better suited when total protection is required.
A smart-looking plastic carry case, for example, can be used to promote, protect, and present samples or demo your products. Due to its lightweight and convenient design, you can easily keep your products or equipment close at hand and easily store and transport them at all times with a plastic case without getting a sore arm.
2. Design of your choice
The top priority for plastic carry cases is, of course, functionality. However, you can also further customise your plastic carry cases to suit your working practices. The cases are available in various colours and can also be branded with silk screen printing and in-mould labels (subject to minimum order) to add your company name or logo.
In addition to their aesthetic value, plastic cases can also benefit your brand in a variety of other ways. Even in the busiest places, people can quickly identify you and your brand if you choose the right style for your plastic case.
A custom print of your choice can be applied to both the back and front sides of the case according to your needs while adding internal branding is also possible. A pair of removable stays/hinges enable all of the SPI plastic case range to open to 90° when in place or a full 180° if they are removed from the case. This is just another feature that makes plastic cases ideal for use by sales representatives during product presentations.
3. Protection in transit
Many things can happen during the transportation process, and it is essential to ensure the safety and security of your products during any journey.
Your products need protection to stay in tip-top shape. Why not use a plastic carrying case to accomplish this? Plastic cases are designed to be durable and hard-wearing. They are made from hard-wearing polymers and are tough, with some models offering total impact resistance. Your choice should be determined by the environment in which the case will be used, the risks it will be exposed to, and the fragility and sensitivity of the contents.
While plastic cases are durable, not all plastic cases are totally indestructible and not all would be suitable, for example, as a carrier transit solution without additional external packaging. Although all plastic cases offer some degree of water resistance, they are not all waterproof However; they are perfect for storing and transporting equipment on and to sites as well as for presentations and demonstrations.

4. Custom Foam Inserts Provide Protection Without Compromising Style
Foam inserts provide enhanced protection for the contents of your plastic case by restricting movement. As well as providing damage protection, foam inserts offer the advantage of making the contents easily identifiable and making your case look well-organised when used for sample presentation or product demo purposes. In every instance, maximum work efficiency is achieved, regardless of whether the contents are:
- Tools for working.
- Equipment for use in demonstrations.
- Product samples for sales presentations.
