Seahorse Rugged Cases Features

WATERTIGHT, AIRTIGHT AND RUSTPROOF
The Neoprene perimeter O-Ring seal makes our cases completely watertight, airtight and dustproof. Our cases are subjected to a 24 hour submersion test in order to meet this feature, and are certified MIL-STD 810F 512.4 and ingress protection codes 6,7.


 

CRUSH RESISTANT
Seahorse cases are manufactured to exceed MIL STDs of 400lbs stacking, drop test at 48″.


AUTO-PURGE SYSTEM
Our cases are watertight and airtight.
Seahorse cases incorporate our foolproof Auto-Purge System. Our Pressure Release Purge Valve guarantees a perfect seal by incorporating its own O-Ring under one of the latches. You will never forget to set the valve since it automatically activates when closing the case. Pressure is released as you open the latch.The Auto-Purge System allows for the case to function even when utilizing the Seahorse Waterproof Panel Kit. This is a critical feature when using the panels for mounting instrumentation.


NON-MAGNETIC WITHOUT OPTIONAL METAL LOCKS
Seahorse SE cases contain no metal and are non-magnetic except when equipped with metal locks on the latches.


PADLOCK HOLES
Each case has two moulded-in padlock holes to secure your valuables. Our padlock holes will accept “TSA” and most standard padlocks. There is room to easily lock and unlock them.


ACCUFOAM FOAM
Accuform Foam is vertically pre-scored, high-density foam that is easily formed to provide a snug fit that protects your equipment from the abuse of your toughest adventure. Accuform Foam in Seahorse cases is a removable, cubed matrix foam set, consisting of a layer of egg-crate foam in the lid, a thick cubed foam centre and a ½” thick, high density shock absorbing foam bottom layer.

(See our Helpful Hints page for more information on how to work with the foam set).


RUSTPROOF
Seahorse Cases are made entirely of space age polypropylene co-polymer and PVC and ABS. There is no metal used in manufacturing or construction of the cases that would allow rust or corrosion.

Our cases can safely be exposed and submerged in seawater or left in the rain. The pins for the hinges, handles and latches are all made of Acetyl resin, which offers excellent lubricity and will not be affected by extreme temperatures. Acetyl resin will never rust or corrode.


CHEMICAL RESISTANT
* SE Series (HURRICANE Series) cases are moulded of polypropylene co-polymer resin.
SE Series offers excellent chemical resistance to oils, fuels and solvents.


UV RESISTANT
All Seahorse cases are moulded with a UV stabilizer, making them ultraviolet resistant. This will prevent the plastic from becoming brittle if left in the sun for extended periods of time. Loss of colour pigmentation is prevented by a UV protection additive used within the co-polymer.


STANDARD COLOURS

HURRICANE SE Series Cases are available in:
•  Black
•  Safety Yellow

OPTIONAL SEAHORSE CASE FEATURES

Metal locks are made entirely of chromed steel and keyed.Plastics locks are moulded of ABS resin, one of the toughest co-polymers available.Metal and Plastic Latch Locks available on all Seahorse cases.


PADDED DIVIDER SETS
(Available only with SE520, SE720, SE920, SE1220)
Seahorse padded dividers sets consist of thickly padded, Velcro lined divider “walls” that are adjustable to an infinite variety of configurations, allowing you to provide various sized compartments to protect your valuable equipment.
All Seahorse protective cases are also available empty, or with die-cut foam.


PANEL KITS
The Seahorse Panel Kits are used when specific equipment needs to be kept protected even when the case is open. These two plates are made of .063″ brushed aluminium and include screws, one perimeter gasket and O-Rings for the screws to waterproof the bottom portion of your case.

The top panel is not watertight. Both panels can have custom cut-outs machined by us according to your specifications. The cut-outs are used to install electronic readouts, buttons, switches and other control and monitoring devices.
