If you want to transport fragile or hazardous equipment, whether it’s across town or across the world, rack cases are well worth your time. Rack cases can be designed to handle extreme conditions from difficult weather conditions to dangerous warzones. That’s why here at Hofbauer we use our over 20 years’ experience to provide our customers with heavy duty 19” rack cases.

With their anti-vibration aluminium frames, the diversity of rack cases in terms of their materials, colours, sizes and finishes makes them incredibly useful in many challenging transit situations, no matter whether they are being taken with you on a trip or used to ship products to your customers. But which jobs are rack cases most suited for? Here are just four occupations that we can think of that benefit most from the durability of rack cases.

Scientific researcher

If you work in a scientific discipline which requires sensitive equipment, such as seismology, you’ll be familiar with taking your equipment out with you on the field. 19” rack cases with honeycomb panels like the Flitebag Enduro will help to keep your business safe, keeping your delicate, high value equipment and samples safe.

Industrial service engineer

Rack cases are an excellent choice for repairmen of any type who need to carry their equipment with them out on a job. It doesn’t matter whether you work with oil, gas, or telecommunications – a rack case will be sturdy enough to stay the distance.


The sheer sturdiness of 19” rack cases means that they are military approved by NATO, Ministry of Defence and the US Department of Defence requirements. Coming with a rugged casing and built-in shock resistance, rack cases can handle being buffeted around on even the most fraught battle zones, even coming with built-in dust and moisture protection for those trying desert environments.

Broadcast journalists

Broadcast journalists work in challenging environments every single day. If you need to transport your mics and cameras safely to broadcast live from a location, a 19” rack case will be a capable and professional-looking solution. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to go live in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
