Hardigg’s line of Double-Entry rackmount transport cases is unsurpassed in the case industry. Our rotomolded shock mounted rack cases ensure maximum protection for shipping virtually any industrial, commercial, scientific, or military equipment and instruments. Hardigg’s reusable double-entry (also called double-lid) cases are lightweight and incredibly rugged, because Hardigg uses the best polyethylene molding processes – Hardigg engineers them..
For example, these Double-Entry rackmounted shipping containers include precision-engineered 2" long elastomeric shock mounts, individually fine-tuned to match the weight of your equipment. This means two inches of sway space enveloping the internal frame to ensure continuous cooling and maximum shock and vibration protection for your rack-mounted equipment.
The Versa-Rack 19" EIA internal frame is made of high-strength, lightweight, heat-treated aluminum, and provides a range of custom mounting options for communications or electronic instruments, computers, and other single components – or even multiple-unit systems.
Hardigg’s double-lid rackmount transit cases come in 10 standard COTS [Commercial Off-The-Shelf] U heights, most of which are available with an optional 1U rack-frame extension. (Each ‘U’ equals 1.75" in height, or 44.45mm.) For a complete list of dimensions, please refer to our rackmount case specifications page.
These Double-Entry cases are compliant with commercial and military performance testing and specifications. You can count on a Hardigg portable transport case to be dustproof, water-resistant, low-maintenance-cost, and reusable for many years. With our reusable cases’ superb design, durability, track record, and attention to design details, thousands of customers rely on Hardigg double-lid shipping cases for mobile workstation set-ups, communications and electronics equipment, medical instruments, and computers.
You’ve already invested thousands of dollars in your electronic, commercial, industrial, or military equipment. With Hardigg rackmount cases, you know you’ve bought the extraordinary protection these delicate instruments need – and deserve.
