Why are flight cases black?

A common question we're asked is why flight cases are black and if it's possible to buy them in different colours.

So, why are they black?...

Most flight cases are used by theatres, festivals and other venues that typically operate in dimly lit conditions. A quantity of brightly coloured cases may be distracting if they are placed in a visible location, so they are finished in black to be inconspicuous and non reflective when in a stage lit environment.

Although black is by far the most popular colour, Rhino® can supply flight cases in a range of colours. They hold black in stock, but if you require a custom colour and a quantity of flight cases, they can build these for you.
