For over 50 years, CP Cases has been designing and manufacturing an extensive range of bespoke cases and 19” racks. Predominantly for Military, Industrial and Defence applications.

With many years of expertise in the industry, we are confident we have the perfect formula. The innovation, durability and high-performance materials guarantee that CP Cases is the case provider of choice for mission-critical situations. Many of our products are accredited to MIL-STD-810, rated IP65 and carry NATO stock numbers.

Our West London HQ houses a range of in-house skills including rotomoulding plastics, Aluminium, laminating plywood, HPP, textiles, CNC foam machining, and label & screen printing. We feel at an advantage with everything under one roof; cutting down on lead time and bringing that bespoke attention to detail to our service from start to finish.

An extensive selection of options includes climate control (compressor and thermoelectric air conditioning units), EMC shielding; fire resistance, and anti-static capabilities. We are constantly developing and refining our product range, pioneering the most effective preventative solutions for weather resistance, water ingress, rough handling and severe impact.

Designed for applications in defence, marine, security, aerospace, oil and gas, satellite and telecommunication markets, Amazon protective cases are tough, lightweight and customisable to meet various client needs.
Amazon ruggedised enclosures combine the tough resilience of a rotomoulded case with an aluminium rack frame (an optional stainless steel frame is available) which is suspended by eight (or 16 as an option) anti-vibration mounts.
A lightweight, 19in ruggedised aluminium electronic transit rack, specifically designed for commercial and military applications when protection against physical, climatic and electromagnetic hazards are required, and where weight, strength and portability are critical issues.
Custom rotomoulded products share many of the benefits of the ruggedised Amazon range. This includes being resistant to impact, water and dust ingress.

Airship is unique in its class, a super lightweight protective case that offers significant weight saving against size and will achieve weight/volume ratios of better than 20kg/m3. The product is extremely flexible and can be built according to customers’ needs and applications. It has an outer rugged textile container with a honeycomb polypropylene inner construction and laminated structure providing rigidity and strength to safeguard the contents.
CP Cases can create foam inserts to meet exacting project requirements for colour, multi-layering and special properties. Foam inserts are an essential part of protective packaging, surrounding and supporting the product itself. The selection of appropriate foam types and densities is critical in ensuring the safety of a case contents. Our capabilities to design, develop and manufacture the most effective foam support or pack for each individual application involves processes such as punching, stamping, CNC routing, hand-forming and sculpturing.

Durable, Bespoke Weapons Cases

Nitrogen-blown polyethylene foam inserts provide unmatched levels of impact absorbency and support for the contents. The inert nature of the foam means there is no chance of chemical contamination or corrosion to the equipment inside.

Foam Protection – Foam Inserts

Foam inserts are an essential part of protective packaging, surrounding and supporting the product itself. The selection of appropriate foam types and densities is critical in ensuring the safety of a case contents.

We apply the client requirement first and the resulting protective case or bag, see our rugged textiles, is the ideal solution.
