The case in detail.

Handy and airworthy thanks to automatic air pressure equalization valve

Wherever the journey may take you, the type 6040 is your faithful companion for dependably protecting expensive technology and other accessories. The built-in air pressure equalization valve automatically opens once the atmospheric pressure changes in order to stabilize the pressure inside the case. This protects the case’s shell and contents, and allows the case to be taken flights. The type 6040 is rated IP67 dustproof and waterproof, and can handle extreme temperatures from -30 °C to 80 °C with ease.

Maximum carrying comfort with shoulder strap and ergonomic handle

The type 6040 can transport even heavy equipment anywhere with ease. The ergonomic two-component handles rest perfectly in the hand. For additional carrying comfort, a B&W shoulder strap option is available that conveniently distributes the weight of the case. For important documents, an optional document pouch can be attached inside the lid.

Variable interior for any need 

Our type 6040 comes with an array of variable interior options. For additional protection, a removable foam insert precut into cubes is available for the main compartment and an egg crate foam insert is available for the lid of the case. The case lid can be removed completely with lift-off hinges.
