Is a Blow Molded Case Better than a Metal Carrying Case?

Custom designing a blow molded case is arguably the best way to protect expensive and fragile gear while traveling. Many individuals think that metal or stainless-steel cases are the strongest on the market, but that is not the case. Think of most action movies where gear is transported; typically, those individuals use plastic carrying cases.

Blow molded cases offer many benefits that are not achieved by other materials, which include:

  1. Metal is more likely to scratch and dent when compared to blow molded plastic cases. Yes, metal is strong, but it does not have the same durability as thick, blow molded plastic. The manufacturing method creates thick, solid pieces that are strong and reliable.
  2. Blow molded cases are often less expensive than metal cases. The material and design process requires less capital, which means that the savings are passed on to customers.
  3. Blow molded cases are highly customizable, and you can add accessories. For heavier gear and cases, wheels and handles can be installed. IF you are carrying weaponry, locks can be added to create a case that can legally be transported.
  4. Unlike metal, plastic can be easily branded with colors. Painted metal often does not look as good as colored plastic. A blow molded case is colored throughout the material, so the mark is difficult to see even when it gets scratched.

When deciding how to protect your gear, you should think fully about your options because when you do, you often realize that blow molded cases are the way to go. For further information on designing cases and custom foam inserts, you should not hesitate to reach out to our talented team.
