Units were loaded with weights (see list below) and
dropped at different angles from a 6-10 platform onto
a concrete surface. Cases maintained their watertight
integrity and remained closed. A small percentage (<10%)
sustained broken tall rib. Tests were successful.

This test was
performed by dropping a 4.5 lb cylindrical piece of
steel onto the centre of the top and then onto the
bottom of each case from a height of 6.
The test was performed three times on each
surface. No material failure or cracks were found.
Repetitive Impact Test
15 lbs of weight was added to each case. Cases were
then hung by their handle and given jolt tests. Every
6 seconds, for 48 hours the cycle machine lifted and
dropped each case. Neither the handle, the handle pin
nor the case itself showed any signs of stress.
Cases were loaded with 75 lbs of steel, and hung by
their handle for 60 hours. No stress marks were found in
handle, pin, latches, hinges or any component of the
