5 Star Packing Crates – Tried and Trusted for Vault-like Protection

“5-Star have designed some fantastically simple yet innovative systems for our sometimes very awkward requests, and they’ve stood the test of time perfectly.”

For 40 years, 5 Star Cases has been manufacturing world-class flight cases that are already trusted by many industries, ensuring the safe transport of vital equipment around the world, even in the most challenging of environments, safely and securely. Taking this expertise, the company has produced a new range of wooden packing crates that are a cost-effective alternative to its highly popular flight cases that will give your products vault-like protection for shipping and storage.

“Having worked with 5 Star Cases for a number of years, there’s no-one else we would trust when ordering our flight cases and storage solutions,” says Si McNally from Power Maxed Racing. “At the level we race at, we need to carry multiple sets of delicate spare parts, and have them easily accessible but well protected during transit. 5 Star have designed some fantastically simple yet innovative systems for our sometimes very awkward requests, and they’ve stood the test of time perfectly.”

5 Star packing crates are custom designed to fit your product perfectly, but if you want something off the shelf, there is also a range of standard sizes to choose from.

Made from 18mm durable Oriented Strand Board, each panel is processed by bonding layers of various wood chips and strips with adhesives, and then laminated together using pressure and heat. This what makes them so tough and durable and makes 5 Star sure they can handle pretty much anything the road can throw at them.

Like its flight cases, 5 Star’s packing crates are CNC-machined at its UK facility for accuracy and repeatability. They have specially designed sprung metal clasps to secure the individual panels to each other, making them easy to put together and take apart, and their smooth surface means no snagging.

5 Star packing crates can be stored flat-packed to save space and they can be used again and again. Assembly is quick and easy: simply lay out the pieces in the right order, place them in position and secure them with the custom-designed metal clasps. To take your crate apart, remove the claps by inserting the with the supplied tool.

To make things easier, each crate comes with a pallet style fork-lift or pallet truck handling feature for easy loading and unloading. They are also available with a choice of different type industrial castors for easy movement, and with most flight case customisation features such as handles, label dishes, partitions or CNC foam inserts.
