Pelican™ Case Protects Bowhead’s Landing Zone Kit

Extreme LZTORRANCE, CA – January 16, 2007 - Pelican™ Products’ high-impact, watertight Protector™ Cases have been chosen to house Bowhead’s portable Extreme LZ Helicopter Landing Zone kit.

“Our tough-as-nails Protector Cases combined with Bowhead’s innovative landing zone solution is a win-win situation for users everywhere,” said Matt Miller, Director of Sales for Pelican. “And we are pleased to be associated with such an innovative and potentially life-saving product.”

“Pelican Cases are the first name in equipment protection and their toughness makes our kit a complete portable landing zone solution for those who need to land anytime, anywhere,” said Erik Kyle of Bowhead Manufacturing Company, LLC.

Housed in a Pelican 1300 Protector Case, the Bowhead Manufacturing’s “Extreme LZ Kit” is a rugged all-in-one Helicopter Landing Zone Kit and is the perfect solution for anyone who needs to set up a temporary landing zone.

The kit comes complete with everything needed to set up in any environment. The PowerFlare® Beacons included provide an excellent target for night time activities and can be seen miles away from the air. To prevent pilot vertigo the beacons shine light along the ground and come programmed with nine distinct flash patterns available in a wide range of different LED colors including infrared. With a battery life up to 100 hours depending on the pattern, the beacons are waterproof, intrinsically safe and are so durable that they can be run over by vehicles or aircraft.  Additional items included in the kit are a ground spike, an instruction manual, an ANSI safety vest, tape measure and five spare lithium CR123A batteries.

Pelican Protector™ Cases boast a fully-stackable, trademarked “Dual Band” design and a cell-core construction that protects sensitive equipment from some of the harshest conditions on Earth.  Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust-proof/waterproof seal and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve that will stop moisture from entering the case and prevent vacuum lock so it’s easier to open the case at any altitude. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases in the linefeature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 400 pounds, but open with a light pull.

As with all Pelican products, their cases arebacked by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You break it, we replace it…forever.”™
