What Are ATA Cases?

ATA Cases, also known as road cases or flight cases are small, portable shipping containers meant to keep your equipment safe and secure during turbulent flights or vigorous travel.

Typically, these cases are characterized by their unique silver trim against black industrial materials and secure latching.

Made for flight travel, these cases were named after the Air Transport Association (ATA) of the mid-1900s, and have since gained popularity under the name of road cases as musicians would store their band equipment in these containers while on tour.

ATA cases have been used in a range of unique sectors from the military to trade shows, medical, and everything in-between. Its prevalence in these industries showcased the container’s durability and craftsmanship with an iconic look that can be customized to suit your brand’s needs. Learn more >

If you are in the market for a case that will last for many years with rigorous handling before needing repair, choose an ATA case and customize it to your needs.

What Are ATA Cases Made From?

Depending on what you are transporting, ATA cases come in three different categories, with category I being the most long-lasting and durable under normal airline cargo handling practices. These cases are designed to handle a minimum of 100 one-way trips under these conditions before needing any kind of repair.

A category I case must be constructed using metal or plastic as these materials are the most durable.
