At Hofbauer, we offer our clients some of the leading protective case solutions and have had over a century of experience in this field since the inception of our manufacturing base in 1902. We continue to develop the materials and moulding technologies used in our products. Here, we outline the special features of our extensive range of flight cases.

Flight cases are special shipping containers for sensitive equipment, offering high protection against damage in transit. They are suitable for a range of purposes within different industries and are often essential products for those who want their belonging safe and secure.


All our flight cases are built with security in mind, featuring large handles, which are able to be padlocked and include chunky catches. There are lightweight options, such as the Flitebag Astro, made from Astraboard, or the Flitebag Enduro, which is constructed using a double-walled honeycomb panelling. On the other hand, the Enduro MAX is a heavy-duty option, which comes in 15 different sizes.


For environmental protection choose our Enduro MAX, Peli & Storm cases, these are waterproof and dustproof. Many of our products feature ‘O-ring’ gasket seals on the lid & base closure, and silicon seals for the panel seams, you can rest assured that no dust or moisture will enter.


It’s possible to customise your flight cases with particular foam inserts. This could convert your flight case to provide document storage or provide a fitted interior for the specific items you need to be carried, using CAD design. Techniques used include CNC routed or CNC Knife-Cut, Water-Jet Cut or Die Cut foam inserts. There are also pre-made designs, such as our 8-bottle Wine Carrier Case, made from the strongest copolymer polyprFlite bagwith foam inserts to cushion the bottles.


As with all our flight cases, the Flitebag Pro offers professional solutions to wide-ranging industries including sales, telecommunications, military, exhibition and audio visual. Similarly, the Enduro MAX and Peli Cases are in regular use by police, fire, film crews, military, NATO, as well as those travelling to harsh environments, or taking part in explorations, withstanding temperatures from -30ºc to +90ºc, both made to be virtually indestructible. We also have the option for Thermodyne Containers, which have over 450 different sizes & are available in 9 colours and are made from a High Density Polyethelene (HDPE) giving them fantastic strength to weight ratio – ideal for air transport.


It is possible to get permanent ID moulded-in when your flight cases are manufactured, making it easy to identify, and giving a professional impression. We are able to screen print in 1-3 colours, allowing you to feature your logo proudly. There’s also the option to include resin domed full colour labels, and full colour vinyl labels, as well as the creation of engraved nameplates.
