SKB PULL-HANDLE CASE DESIGNS
SET NEW TRANSPORT STANDARDS.
The engineering team at SKB is rolling out the latest line of multi-functional military style transport cases. A
perfect combination of superior rotationally molded strength and ergonomic design. Inpenetrable, yet lightweight
LLDPE shell provides maximum impact resistence as well as UV and solvent resistence. Complete gasket seal and
pressure relief valve makes these cases absolutely watertight while stainless steel hardware prevents rusting. These
cases are designed and built to withstand levels
of punishment in excess of all ATA and
most industrial and military shipping
specifications.

SKB Introduces Bold Advancements
THE ULTIMATE
EXTREME PROTECTION
SHOCK RACK
rotationally
molded double
walled body for
exceptional strength
During the last 26 years SKB has designed and built more rack cases than any company. In the
fall of 2001 SKB began the development of the ultimate shock-rack system. Careful analysis of
existing rackmount technology led SKB engineers to re-examine every detail and focus on
making numerous significant design upgrades resulting in a product that now sets the standard
in shock-resistant transport.
The rack frame: The completely redesigned frame is an engineering masterpiece. Threaded steel
rails and aluminum cross components are clamped together in an “H” shaped rigid configuration by
four, 3/16" solid steel rivets at every intersection.
Compound hinge* system (Patent Pending): Open the superb quality field-replaceable latches on
the left-hand side of the door and the lid swings out … and completely around to lie flat against the
main body. If you want to go “lid-less” they can be removed with an effortless lift motion and
reinstalled with the same ease in seconds.

hinge technology
allows 270° door swing
range even when cases are
in a stacked position
“Plug fit” lids: The lids are designed to protrude into the base of the case approx. 1”. Their unique
double wall structure makes them incredibly stiff where this intersection occurs. For this reason,
this new generation of shock racks achieves mil-spec sealing characteristics with significantly fewer
latches than the competition. This allows rapid deployment in an up-right configuration…even when
stacked.
Stackability: Most shockmount cases will allow for some level of stackability. The new SKB shockrack system takes this necessary feature to a new level. These cases stack
securely with the wheels on…or off. Additionally, the revolutionary design is
also the only one that will open, front and back, while stacked.
Accessories: A growing list of available options and accessories now includes
the best-designed removable slide-in caster system in the industry,
airtight/watertight automatic relief valves, key lockable latches, payload rear
support system and nomenclature per mil-specs, additional field installable
shocks and custom colors.

Elastomers: All SKB shock-racks come
standard with 8ea. HM-245 elastomeric
high-damping, wide temp. range shock
mounts. Shear spring rate is 50 lbs/in.
Additional or stiffer shock mounts may be
ordered from the factory, and are easily
field-installed.
Standard depth front to rear rail: 24”
Each lid is 4.5" deep.

"this case exhibits the ultimate advancements in shockmount technology"
Both lids can be
completely removed and
re-attached simply and quickly.
• Redesigned frame with threaded steel rails and aluminum cross components forming an "H"
shaped rigid configuration.
• Unique "plug" style lid sealing system. Lids penetrate the body with an approximate 1" moldedin protrusion that provides both outstanding sealing and anti-shear properties.
• Patent-pending compound hinge system allows the lids to swing out 270˚ and rest along the
sides of the case. Or they can be easily removed and reinstalled in seconds.
• Standard rack depth front to rear rail is 24" and each lid is 4" deep.
• Stacks securely with wheels on or off and this revolutionary design also allows for both lids to
open completely while cases are stacked.
• Comes standard with 8 each HM-245 elastomeric, high damping, wide temperature range
shock mounts with a shear spring rate of 50lbs./in.
• Additional or stiffer shock mounts may be ordered from the factory and are easily fieldinstalled.
• Standard high quality slide-in/out locking swivel 4" casters rated at 1,200 lbs.
• Airtight/watertight automatic relief valves.
• Stainless steel key-lockable latches.
• Easy-grip molded handles.
• Custom colors are available. Contact the SKB factory directly for quantity requirements.
NEW 20" ROTO
SHOCK RACKS
SKB's new Roto Shock Racks feature a (20" deep) roto molded tough shell with an
integrally molded valance that eliminates the need for a metal valance on the outside
of the case. Both front and rear doors are fitted with rubber gaskets for water resistant
protection. The integrated molded valance, ergonomic handles and recessed, bumper
protected heavy-duty twist latches allow these cases to meet most ATA and military
specifications.
As well as roto-molded toughness and ATA compliance, new elastomeric shock
technology has replaced the metal coil system to provide an increased level of
protection for valuable equipment. Field replacing our standard elastomeric shocks
with additional available shocks can accommodate multiple weight bearing
Molded-in handles and
