Are Custom Foam Inserts Important for Carrying Cases

What is more important, a hard-shell case or foam inserts. It is common for individuals to get caught up with the design and construction of a case's exterior and to pay little attention to foam inserts. A blow molded case is built tough, which means it can withstand a significant amount of abuse before breaking. A blow molded case without custom foam inserts does little to help protect your gear.

Blow Molded Cases

Think of it this way: foam acts as a shock absorber for products in your case. A hard-shell case reduces the force of impact, and the foam dissipates the residual force that passes through a hard exterior. If you own and use a custom carrying case, but you are still suffering significant damage while traveling, the problem is with your foam inserts.

There are two common types of foam used inside custom carrying cases: Polyethylene (PE) and Polyurethane (Ester). PE foam is ideal for creating a snug and secure fit because it is a dense and slightly pliable material. If you are carrying medium to heavy weighted objects, this is the foam for you. Polyurethane is a soft foam that should be used for delicate objects that can break with only modest impact. When you are creating cases to carry uniquely shaped objects, this foam is an ideal choice.
