UNIQUE “LITEFLITE” CONSTRUCTION
The criteria for the design called for the construction of the very best lightweight cases possible, encompassing the use of the finest modern materials. The result is a range of cases manufactured using a unique composite double moulded construction which gives unparalleled protection for your instrument from a lightweight case with a low/medium retail price range.
The construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell. This is bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of ‘High Tech’ cellular foam. The inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world. The UNIQUE bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell gives unbeatable, total structural rigidity. This is UNMATCHED BY ANY OTHER CASE IN THE WORLD in our price range.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, (A.B.S.) due to its unique balance of properties, produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. These characteristics make it the first choice for applications throughout manufacturing businesses worldwide. Uses vary from computer housings to motor car bumpers and of course, Hiscox Cases!
FABRIC AND PADDING
A crushed velvet type fabric competes the interior, we use different grades depending on each case type. Bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding is the fabric, giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, which is perfectly fitted every time. Extra cushioning is provided by upholstered pads in the PRO and Artist ranges and are factory fitted in key areas. To customise the body, we can provide loose pads therefore providing a closer fit for a particular instrument.
The aluminium valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It’s design increases the rigidity of the case and ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. The valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This is unlike any other case on the market. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose. With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox ‘Liteflite’ cases exhibit enormous crush strength – as a result even our standard case range have has been tested to over 500kg (five fully grown people).
