Hard Shell Cases
Hard shell cases, also referred to simply as hard cases, are mainly used as travel and business cases. The main feature of hard shell cases is, as the name already suggests, the hard outer wall, namely its shell. It is therefore ideally suited for travel in general, business trips and air travel, as the luggage is often exposed to heavy knocks in these circumstances. Hard shell cases are also used in the electronics sector, for example, or wherever fragile items may be easily damaged and a cost-effective solution is sought.
A distinction can generally be made with a hard shell case between cases made of aluminium and cases made of propylene or other plastics - whereby the aluminium cases are certainly more robust and stable. However, hard shell cases made of aluminium are also relatively heavy and therefore only suitable to be used as travel cases under certain conditions (due to the high cost of the luggage).
Hard shell case – the alternative to the aluminium case
Hard shell cases can be a real alternative to aluminium cases, in many instances. The type of case recommended for use depends on the sector and intended use. If you travel a lot by train or plane, a hard shell case is preferable because it is less sensitive to knocks and any impacts barely leave a visible mark on the surface. Hard shell cases are also usually significantly lighter than aluminium cases, making them easier to handle. Field sales representatives travelling by car to visit customers are advised to take an aluminium case rather than a hard shell case because they offer greater visual scope and options for incorporating individual customer requirements.
