What is a flight case made of?

There are a variety of sizes and quality flight cases on the market. Top quality flight cases including Rhino®, are made from slow grown high-density birch plywood to ensure maximum strength without a significant weight penalty. The plywood has a rugged outer “skin” of protective laminate that is bonded to the plywood to ensure long service life. Low cost models may be built from MDF or low quality timber

Quality flight cases are then built into the desired shape and size by using heavy duty aluminium extrusions specially designed for maximum strength. This is complimented by a variety of galvanised steel handles, corners, hinges and catches, determined by the specific model. Rhino® rolling cabinets – “roll cabs” – have heavy duty large braked wheels to make manoeuvring as easy as possible, even with heavy loads.
