Pelican Cases – Virtually Indestructible

Pelican is the largest manufacturer of military and aerospace approved reusable, recyclable, logistic containers and cases. Since 1976, the company has developed custom solutions for the transport and packaging needs of military sector, including cases that are rugged, watertight, airtight, chemical-resistant, lightweight, durable, impact-resistant and reusable. These cases efficiently keep the sensitive and vital equipment safe from moisture, dust, sand, salt and impact.

Since Pelican has introduced the Pelican Air series over two years ago, customers have demanded a long form factor in the Pelican Air case line,” said John Luna, Director of Product Management, Commercial/Government Products. “We heard their feedback and, in response, are pleased to introduce an extraordinarily tough and lightweight long case worthy of the Pelican name.”

With the Pelican Air 1745 Long Case, it’s now easier to protect long equipment in a case line that is up to 40% lighter than other polymer cases. The 1745 boasts more than 5,900 square inches (Interior: 44” x 16.77” x 8”), it’s the deepest Pelican long case. It is also the first Pelican Air case to feature extremely tough Press and Pull latches that lock automatically, but open with a light touch.

The 1745 Air Case features an automatic purge valve, super-light proprietary HPX²™ Polymer, quiet rolling stainless-steel bearing wheels and a watertight O-ring gasket. This case passes the same performance tests (impact, drop, submersion, high and low temperature) endured by other Pelican case lines, ensuring that Pelican users can have 100% confidence in its protection. The 1745 is backed by the company’s legendary lifetime guarantee of excellence.
