Pelican Cases Save Essential Gear at James Madison’s Montpelier Archaeology Lab

On the evening of Monday, April 8th, at James Madison's Montpelier estate, a fire broke out in their archaeology office and lab, causing significant damage. However, amidst the devastation, a remarkable story of survival emerged.

Thanks to the robust protection of two Pelican ProtectorTM cases and three Pelican Air Cases, much of their essential tech equipment, including cameras and iPads, was shielded from the worst effects of the fire.

Although several cases fused shut due to the flames' extreme temperatures, the essential gear remained intact and protected. This invaluable protection ensured that critical resources for the Archaeology Department, accumulated over a decade, were preserved.

Pelican is dedicated to upholding our Built to Protect™ motto by providing superior protection for personal property and preserving the small comforts that can be crucial in times of distress. We thank Chris Pasch and his team for sharing their survival story. We appreciate hearing how our products have helped our customers in extraordinary situations.
