***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
Torrance, CA - February 27, 2006 - Pelican™ Products, a leading manufacturer of high-impact, watertight Protector™ Cases, has announced that their cases have been certified with the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Stanag 4280 and Def-Stan 81-41 quality testing standards.
The Stanag 4280 and Def-Stan 81-41 standards for military use are embraced by the NATO countries as the European equivalents to the MIL-SPEC certification in the United States. Both sets of criteria subject the cases to an extensive battery of standardized endurance and quality tests designed to simulate extreme situations. Pelican Protector Cases met and mastered challenges gauging their resistance to vibration and high impact, as well as high and low temperatures for extended periods of time (up to 131Âº Fahrenheit for 48 hours and as low as -4Âº Fahrenheit for 16 hours).
Pelican Protector Cases offer a fully stackable design, boasting nearly 14,000 cubic inches of possible storage space in the line’s largest cases. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases feature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 400 pounds, but open with a light pull. Stainless steel reinforced padlock protector holes (on most models) are also featured for added security.
Like all Pelican Protector Cases, the cell-core construction helps them protect sensitive equipment in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and waterproof seal, and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve, that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuum-lock so the case opens easily at any altitude. Proprietary customizable Pick N Pluck™ foam is also included with most Pelican Protector Cases. Of course, Pelican Cases can also be spotted by the distinctive, trademarked “Dual Band” design.
Optional features include TSA-Accepted security padlocks and multi-pocketed lid organizers, as well as single and dual-level padded divider sets. As with all Pelican products, the cases are backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You Break It, We Replace Itâ€¦Forever.”™
