Hiscox cases are designed to be the best constructed lightweight cases possible, by using a unique composite double moulded construction which gives unparalleled protection for your instrument.
The high impact resistant A.B.S. plastic outer shell is bonded directly to an inner moulding manufactured from a unique blend of 'High Tech' cellular foam. This inner moulding is feather light and, being semi-rigid, is designed to soak up impact shocks from the outside world.
The case lining is completed with a crushed velvet type fabric of different grades depending on case type. This is bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel, perfectly fitted every time.
The aluminium valance is unique to Hiscox Cases. It's design not only increases the rigidity of the case, but ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose. With their incredible structural rigidity, all Hiscox 'Liteflite' cases exhibit enormous crush strength - even our standard case range have has been tested to over 500kg (five fully grown people).
Original Liteflite construction utilizing outer shell of nominal 1.5mm* thick ABS bonded to polyurethane inner moulding.
The 1.5mm thick outer shell is our original 'Liteflite' specification continually manufactured since 1985.
