Use Foam Inserts to Keep Your Possessions Safe

August 8, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The uses for protective, foam-filled briefcases go far beyond what we see in popular cultures. Few people are double agents needing a quickly assembled, silenced pistol in a secret briefcase compartment, and there aren’t many people transporting gems and jewels in suitcases either. Fortunately, for the rest of us, there are uses for foam packing that have plenty of real-world applications that apply to people’s everyday lives.

A custom case with customized foam isolates items from impact and virtually eliminates movement within the case, whether it carries one item or many. One of the most popular uses for foam inserts is in photography, as camera equipment is costly and modular, requiring many different pieces that need to be kept safe while still remaining accessible. Hard shell cases do a good job protecting against the elements and external damage, while resilient interior foam, like strong bed wedge pillows, stabilize the item and absorb shock.

Cases and inserts have a big role for many hobbies too. Hunters and marksmen who want to ensure the safety and upkeep of their firearms routinely use foam-padded cases. Made to be locked, they keep contents safe, while keeping others from gaining access. Padded security cases are very helpful in the scientific community as well. Many experiments and tests require on-site measurements and calculations, necessitating delicate and expensive instruments being transported to various locations. Custom shapes carved into the foam can hold every component securely in place, preventing damage to delicate equipment and making it easy to gather necessary data.

Even on a small scale, students and professionals can benefit from this degree of protection for their laptops and electronics. Foam inserts are made in anti-static formulations which benefit these uses, as well as many of the aforementioned testing and instrument applications. These help prevent the invisible buildup and damaging transfer of electro-static energy to housed components.
