Extra Large Pro Audio Case is First from New Injection Molding System

January 15, 2009

The first case to come out of SKB's new massive Injection Molding System is the 3I-2918-14B Pro Audio Utility Case. Measuring an impressive 29” Long x 18” Wide x 14” Deep, this newest addition to SKB's growing line of 3I Series waterproof injection molded cases is molded of ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin, features a gasketed, water and dust tight, submersible design (IP67) that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage, and an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C) to assist with moisture control.



This new 3I Series size, the largest in the 3I Series family, is the first developed specifically for the new SKB Energy Saving Hydraulic Toggle Injection Molding System recently installed at SKB’s manufacturing facility in Orange, California. This injection system is one of the largest most efficient injection molding systems in the United States.



The 3I-2918-14B Pro Audio Utility Case also features three protected hinges with stainless steel pins to provide lid stability, SKB’s “trigger release” latch system with TSA recognized and accepted locks built-in, an oversized double grip carrying handle to balance a heavy load, and comfortable snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handles on each end for a two person carry. An industrial strength injection molded pull handle and wide set double wheels offer the perfect solution to comfortable transport of pro audio equipment, cables, hardware, drum accessories or even a snare.
