SKB Introduces New Watertight Cases

SKB is well-known for their instrument cases, as well as cases for a wide variety of non-musical applications. What is less well-known is that they make puncture-proof waterproof cases for a wide range of applications. The company recently installed a new new Hydraulic Toggle Injection Molding System at their Orange, CA facility and has introduced two new larger sizes to the 3I Series of Watertight Utility Cases.

The inside dimensions of the 3I-2317-14B Watertight case are 23” x 17” x 14” ( 2 1/2” deep top over 11 1/2” deep base) and the 3I-2918-14B case is 29” x 18” x 14” (2 12” deep top over 11 1/2” deep base). The interiors of both cases are available (E) Empty or with (C) Cubed foam. Utilizing SKB’s new Custom Foam Shop to your individual specifications can customize empty cases.

These new cases are molded of ultra high strength polypropylene copolymer resin. Waterproofing is accomplished via a a gasketed, water and dust tight, submersible designthat is resistant to corrosion and impact damage, and an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C) to assist with moisture control. There are three protected hinges with stainless steel pins to provide lid stability and five of SKB’s “trigger release” latches for added security. What this means in practice is the next time a hurricane hits, your instruments or audio gear will be completely protected. Both cases include an industrial-strength injection molded pull handle and four wide set in-line skate style wheels to comfortably transport pro audio equipment, video equipment, cables or hardware.
