PRESS RELEASE: Photoflex Unveils New Rolling Case
Photographer Feedback Inspired Revisions and improvements to the popular Transpac Dual Kit Case
Photographers spoke and Photoflex listened. Then they created a new design for the popular rolling case. The Transpac Dual Kit Case is the perfect choice for transporting location lighting kits. The case has a rugged exterior combined with a protective interior offering durability and safety in one piece. This case is customizable for a variety of configurations and the new red interior makes it easier to see and find equipment.
The external dimensions of this case are 47.25 x 12 x 12" (120 x 30.5 x 30.5cm). Unloaded the bag weighs 20 lbs (9.1 kg). The case is made with 600 denier proprietary DuraCloth and a rigid wall of lightweight corrugated polymer. The seams are double stitched and taped. Handles, corners and rails are made of high-impact shock-absorbing lightweight polymer, with bolt and locking nut through-wall hardware assembly.
With handles on each end of the case and a central dual strap system reinforced with a bolt and bar tack stitching, the case can be carried by one or two persons -- or wheeled. The non-scuff clear urethane inline skate wheels are spaced wide on the base to give added stability. Large #10 coil self repairing zippers with high visibility red pull-tabs are a significant improvement over earlier designs. Fleece lining and adjustable polymer reinforced dividers cradle the equipment for extra protection.
With all these great features, this case is about one third the cost of the competition.
Photoflex was started in 1985 to solve the problem of difficult to assemble and poor quality photographic Light Modifiers. The company found a need for education about how to use its products and created Web Photo School which has over 25,000 daily visitors.
