Custom Modular Containers

Capability:

Modular containers designed by the engineers at ZERO Manufacturing protect some of the world's most sophisticated products and instrumentation. Customers including NASA, Lockheed Martin, and the US Military have contacted us to create custom transit and storage solutions for a variety of components. Exterior shells are made of high grade aluminum and can be left plain or be painted in a variety of military standard or customer specified colors using the Pantone Matching System, FED-STD-595, or RAL standards. Engineers can design custom foam cushioning systems as well as vibration and shear mounts to protect equipment during rail, air, truck, or ship transport.

Not only do modular cases provide premium protection during transit, they are an ideal long term storage solution. Continuous neoprene seals provide a barrier to water and other contaminants. Cases are available in a variety of configurations including top opening, pallet and shroud, split and double ended types. Some of our marquee projects include custom commissioned containers for the storage and transport of spacecraft components, aircraft engines, satellite antennae, and flight guidance systems. Even though top quality material and extensive engineering go into each container, given the long product life, our custom modular containers are often more cost effective than wooden crates over the life of the container. Lead times for modular cases are approximately 8 to 12 weeks depending on complexity, internal protective specifications and test requirements. For more information regarding our custom modular containers, see the table below, or contact us directly.
