Q: What's the difference between Pelican & Storm Cases ?
A: Pelican acquired Hardigg Industries (makers of Storm cases) in 2009. Now "Pelican-Storm" these cases are similar in size and price, but offer a slightly different look. See the link below for style differences.
Q: What materials are the cases made from ?
A: The cases are made out of a Polypropylene copolymer material that is light weight, durable and highly chemical resistant.
Q: My company needs you to fill in a form for payment ?
A: Carry It Cases does not participate in customer forms, online portals, downloading or uploading of Invoices into client systems or proving our account. If paying via EFT, details are outlined on the Tax Invoice, if you are unsure, please use Bpay this is already verified by the bank with our biller code, also on the Tax Invoice.
Q: How does the Pick'N'Pluck foam work ?
A: The video below will give you an idea on how this works. The foam layers have pre-scored cuts that you break away to the desired shape of your device.
Q: What temperatures can the cases tolerate?
A: The cases (MIL SPEC) will withstand temperatures from -10°F (-23.3°C) to +210°F (98.9°C).
Q: What adhesives and/or paints can be used on the cases?
A: Due to the nature of the polypropylene being chemically inert, very little will attack the material. That also means that very few adhesives and paints will adhere satisfactorily. For an adhesive, we have found that 3M’sDP-8005 two-part adhesive works very well with our case material.
Q: Are there any hazardous substances in the case material?
A: RoHS, or “Restriction on Hazardous Substances” - RoHS specifically bans or restricts the use of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated biphenyl ethers (PBDE). At the July 1, 2006 implementation of the RoHS provisions, Pelican cases will not contain the banned or restricted materials and will therefore be RoHS compliant. NOTE: Directive 2000/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment – is aimed at reducing the hazardous materials content in electronic products as well as increasing the recycling efforts for these products.
Q: How does the Pressure Equalization Valve work?
A: The Pressure Equalization Valve is a simple device. ; It consists of a housing with a hole through it that is covered with a thin Gore-Tex® membrane. According to the Gore™ tech sheet: “The microporous expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane continuously allows the free passage of gases and vapors, equalizing the pressure differential between the enclosure and ambient before it builds to the point that a seal is compromised. Water, dust and dirt are repelled by the hydrophobic membrane, thereby protecting expensive and sensitive electronics.”
Q: Can I change the Automatic valve (SKU: 1209AUTO) to a manual valve (SKU: 1209)? NO LONGER AVAILABLE
A: These are not made to be easily changed so in short the answer is no however If you are prepared to do it here is what you will need to do. Use a wide blade screw driver to carefully lift out the existing valve, you will need to work around the valve and twist the screw driver a little to start lifting it out. Drill the existing hole to 8.3mm (DO NOT try any larger as the brass lug will fall out).
You will need two parts (1209BL - Brass Lug & 1209 - Manual Valve with O-Ring). You will see on the brass lug their is a small lip around the top, this needs to be counter sunk so that it fits flush with the case frame on the outside of the case. To do this you can use a larger drill just to take the top off a little (about 1mm). Insert the the brass lug and screw in the valve. Ensure the O-rings fits flush against the case.
Q: What is the O-ring made of?
A: The O-ring is made of EPDM or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. It is well known for its excellent ozone, weathering and aging resistance. It also has excellent water and steam resistance, maintains its flexibility at low temperatures, features excellent resistance to alkalis, acids and oxygenated solvents and is very color stable. (It is not recommended for resistance to oil, gasoline and hydrocarbon solvents.) EPDM is found in a wide range of applications and is excellent for use outdoors.
A: The two digits represent different forms of environmental influence:
• The first digit represents protection against ingress of solid objects.
• The second digit represents protection against ingress of liquids.
The larger the value of each digit, the greater the protection. As an example, a product rated IP54 would be better protected against environmental factors than another similar product rated as IP42.
Ingress of solid objects
