Product Feature: Products for Flightcases

Did you know that we’re one of the leading suppliers of high-quality Birch Plywood to the Flightcase and Specialist Packaging sector? We stock a range of panel products that are eminently suitable for such demanding applications, such as Flightcases, including:

>> Riga Heksa Plus: Available in Black, Silver, Grey and Dark Brown 1220mm x 2440mm; in thicknesses of  6.5mm, 9mm and 12mm;

>> Riga Composite PPL: Available in Black or White 1220mm x 2440mm, with a tough Polypropylene overlay on one or both sides. Some larger 3050mm long panels are also available from stock, please ask for details.

We can also supply 9mm Riga and Koski Diamond boards; an established industry staple; and our old favourite ‘Riga Form’ – which is a tough, phenolic film-faced Birch plywood from Latvia, available in a variety of colours and sizes.

All products are FSC® certified from Latvia or Finland, and offer the best in sustainability. They are also now bonded with an ECOlogical natural, Lignin-based exterior adhesive to EN 314-2: Class 3. These boards have great strength-to-weight ratio, are of excellent structural quality,  and have good impact resistance – plus they also meet EN 13986 and comply with ISPM 15 packaging regulations.

Flightcases and road trunks have to be able to withstand the rigours of being on tour, and being constantly handled. By using robust, yet eco-friendly birch plywood you can be sure that the cases will offer the ultimate protection for your sound, light, music or specialist electronic equipment.

Looking for something more bespoke? We can also supply HPL laminated Birch plywood in 9mm and 12mm too, with over 100 colours available. If your clients need a specific colour case to match their brand, then we are able to help! – ask us for a quotation and we’ll get this sorted for you. Our HPL is available up to 3050mm in length, meaning that even the largest trunks can be catered for.
