Our custom built flight cases are manufactured from top grade 6mm, 9mm or 12mm birch plywood which can either be coated with Phenolic GRP resin laminated with Thermo Plastic or an HP laminate. All edges are covered with angle protectors fixed with nickle plated machine driven steel rivets. Heavy duty recessed butterfly catches and handles are fitted together with zinc plated steel ball corners. Lids can be either hinged or lift off depending on individual requirements. Heavy duty castors can be fitted to aid manoeuvrability, 2 of which are normally braked.The interior can then be foam lined or padded with various types and thickneses of foam to secure and protect the contents.

Here at Dragon Cases we have been busy this week designing a new range of Lightweight shockmounted 19 inch rack flight cases. These will feature a new lightweight steel subframe which will be manufactured by Penn Elcom suspended with 8 rubber anti-vibration mounts fitted in to an Astraboard flight case.
These will be manufactured to order in heights of 2 unit, 4 unit, 6 unit and 8 unit in 350mm, 450mm, 510mm and 550mm depths. Available colours will be red, blue, black and silver grey.
We have been asked many times over the years if we are able to build lighter rack cases, but have been unable to do this until now.
While still offering our standard heavier weight Shock mounted rack flight case, Foam Suspended rack flight case and Standard rack flight case, the new design will be a lighter weight alternative.
If you would like a quote on these, please fill in our quote request page and we will get back to you with a price.
This weekend sees the legendary Glastonbury Festival.
There will be many of Dragon Cases' products to be seen scattered around the site. Be it custom flight cases, padded bags or poly cases, the many bands, production companies and catering companies that have used our services over the years will make good use of our cases during this time. In particular, our 19 inch shock mounted rack flight cases will take pride on the different stages holding the various equipment which contributes to the running of the concerts.
While the laminate faced birch plywood or Astraboard that makes up our cases is pivotal, it’s the choice of flight case hardware that’ll please you most. We have been players in this industry for over 30 years now, and over that time we have become as proficient in flight case hardware as we have with the cases themselves.
This history, pedigree, and expertise means we can offer a range of hardware that will cater to you and your transportation needs. As you know, we’re all about customisation, and this doesn’t just cover flight cases but the components that make them up also. Why ‘make do’ and jeopardise the safe transit of your equipment by carrying them in inadequate cases? With Dragon Cases, we can customise your flight case hardware to ensure your valuables receive that extra bit of security – which should help you better at night, no?
We also stock a broad selection of accessories from panels and rack trays, to rack clamps and fixings, all of which contribute to a unique level of personalisation, as well as offering you the opportunity to pick up spares should there be any mishaps, losses, or breakages.
For a lot of you, your equipment is your life, and so it makes sense that you go to whatever lengths necessary to ensure its safety. Our premium quality, customised flight cases provide the best refuge for your expensive equipment, and our hardware ensures your cases fulfil their full potential.
If a flight case is too impractical, one of our padded bags may well be more suitable for your requirements. The bags are made from a PVC-coated nylon composite (840den) and padded with foam (or a robust rigid lining) to give your equipment all the protection it needs.
As with our flight cases, a Dragon Cases bag is highly customisable. We’ve already mentioned that you can select the most appropriate form of padding or lining for your bags; here are some of the other options that we can offer you:
- Any size you need
- Velcro fasteners or a sturdy zip?
- Handles or shoulder straps (or both)?
- Colours: black, blue, purple, orange and more!
We can even add your company logo to the padded equipment bags that you order from us (see example image above). Click here to get a quote for your bags – the quotation is free, and there’s no obligation to make an order. Please note that impose a minimum order of 3 bags per size.
