Plasticase Inc. Launches Innovative Nanuk™ Long Case Series

TERREBONNE, QC, April 15, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Celebrating their 30th anniversary as a global leader in the protective case industry, Plasticase is proud to announce the introduction of the NANUK™ Long Case Series. Designed and manufactured in Canada, the Long Case Series is offered in two lengths (990 - 44" and 995 - 52" internal lengths), and is engineered with form, function and long term durability in mind. These new cases are the perfect solution for storing and transporting long firearms, industrial equipment, and outdoor sporting gear with confidence.

"NANUK" is an Inuit word meaning "polar bear," and was chosen as homage to the polar bear's persistence and durability in hostile Arctic climates. The Long Case Series carries an IP67 ingress protection rating, and has been successfully tested by an independent testing laboratory to ensure compliance with strict military and transport authority requirements. These cases will protect your expensive equipment from damage during transit while withstanding temperatures ranging from -29C to +60C.  The cases are injection molded using NANUK's field proven NK-7 resin, a polypropylene-based polymer that has been enhanced with performance additives to boost impact resistance and withstand severe weather conditions.

Nanuk's patented PowerClaw Latching System keeps your items safe and secure. With a sliding lock button and sturdy nylon construction on each of the four standard latches, the PowerClaw Latching System is engineered to use compressive force to keep your case closed during the toughest of missions.

For further security you can lock down your equipment using one of four stainless steel reinforced padlock hasps. Inside, high-quality polyurethane foam inserts can be easily tailored to fit any shape and offer customized protection. Reach for one of two soft touch spring loaded handles and you are ready to go.

The Long Case Series is designed with rugged mobility in mind. Polycarbonate wheels with stainless steel bearings allow for smooth, trouble free rolling, while the durable polyurethane over molding makes for quiet transport. Multiple tie down eyelets and a stackable interlocking design keeps shipping and storage simple and secure. The optional TSA approved padlock offers additional protection and easy inspection when travelling though airport security checkpoints.

Every NANUK case is manufactured at Plasticase's state of the art factory in Canada to the highest standards in the industry. Plasticase's team of experienced engineers and designers are constantly focused on striking a balance between form and function, and the Long Case Series is the latest result of this vision.

The 990 and 995 cases are available in black, olive, or tan, and can be personalized with a logo and tailored interior to create a truly customized carrying solution.
