A custom cushion is needed when you have oddly shaped cavities or higher cushioning requirements. The custom cushion will typically protect your unit to a higher degree. The cushion material will also hold up longer over repeated installations and removals.
Cases-Cases can design a custom cushion for you. We’d need to receive a list of units going in the case as well as dimensions of the units. This can be accomplished by one of our packaging specialists coming out to you to measure or you can send in 3D drawings.
A brief description of the environments the case will see is always helpful.
Once we receive the unit lists and dimensions, we will pick the correct case size and any special requirements. We then will design the cushion interior and send to you for approval.
Once the drawing is approved, we will send you a quote.
You simply place an order with the custom part number we give you.
