PORTEX


instrument cases

ADVANTAGES

As standard product we offer two sizes and two distinct finishes. It uses the same aluminum sheet shell process as our other cases. The cover can also be made removable. We can modify to accommodate interior brackets, mounts, compartments, and markings such as silk screening. An internal mounting flange is available for installation of electronics panel or instrument panel. Custom designed partitions and fold-down dividers are available. Due to minimal corner radii the PORTEX briefcase offers optimal useable space in relation to case size.

PORTEX Briefcases are designed to protect items such as small instruments, tools, cameras, anything that needs to be hand-carried and which would be damaged in a soft case. Also, mobile instruments such as sophisticated GPS devices.
