SKBís New Fly Racks


SKBís New Fly Racks

January 29, 2016

Orange, CA Ė SKB Corporation has developed an innovative line of ATA Removable Shock Racks that will revolutionize the way you travel and protect delicate electronics and guitar amps, the 3i-2217-82U (2U), 3i-2217-103U (3U), and the 3i-2217-124U (4U) Fly Racks.

The internal Fly Rack frames are made in Orange, California and are built of high strength, lightweight aluminum alloy and 11 gauge hot rolled carbon steel rack rails Ė the same shock rack cages found in SKB Military-Grade shock racks. Each internal rack contains front and rear steel rack rails with a 13Ē rack depth. ABS plastic covers the top and bottom of the removable shock rack for added protection when the rack is out of the case. The rack frame will easily fit into SKBís iSeries case that is protected by high quality PE foam that provides space for protruding knobs and buttons as well. iSeries watertight cases are lightweight and under 62 linear inches keeping them from being oversized Ė the perfect solution when flying or shipping delicate equipment. The Fly Racks are less than half the weight of standard shock racks.

SKBís ATA Fly Racks are housed in iSeries cases that are molded of ultra-high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin, with a gasketed, water and dust proof submersible design (MIL-C-4150) that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage. The cases include stainless steel molded-in hinges, TSA acceptable trigger release latches, comfortable snap-down rubber over-molded cushion grip handles and an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (MIL-STD-648C). The 3i-2217-103U and 3i-2217-12U4 Fly Racks have a pullout handle and convenient wheels for easy transport. All Fly Racks are made in the USA.

The 3i-2217-82U ($389.99), 3i-2217-103U ($449.99) and 3i-2217-124U ($499.99) Fly Racks are covered by SKBís unsurpassed Lifetime Warranty. For additional information contact SKB Music Pro Av Sales at 1.800.410.2024 Fax 714.283.0425 www.skbcases.com/musicproav.
