Rocky Mountain Tool's Pelican(TM) 1730 Dual Mode Shipping Case Redefines Tough

HYRUM, Utah , June 2 -- There has never been a shipping container like this. Responding to rising demand for durable, reusable shipping cases, Pelican(TM) Products, Inc. has introduced the 1730 Dual Mode Shipping Case -- and Rocky Mountain Tool ( is making it available to companies needing to safeguard their products against water, dust or being crushed during transport (

The newest Pelican shipping case features easy-open double throw latches and a watertight O-ring seal. The case's open-cell core and solid walls make it sturdy yet lightweight. Thanks to an automatic pressure equalization valve and an optional humidity gauge that changes color in humidity greater than 40%, the Pelican 1730 -- with almost 10,000 cubic inches of space inside -- is ideal for shipping such sensitive products as emergency medical supplies, breathing apparatus, HazMat equipment, and even electronic components like flat-panel displays, hard drives and server nodes.

While it stacks perfectly on pallets thanks to its extra deep stackable cleats, the Pelican 1730 is also designed with fold-down handles and polyurethane wheels for easy manual moving. The durability Pelican is known for is evident here: The 1730 Dual Mode Shipping Case includes stainless-steel ball bearings and nylon hubs as well as stainless steel hardware and padlock protectors. The case protects its contents in temperatures from -10 degrees Fahrenheit to 210 degrees Fahrenheit. And as with all Pelican Products available on, Rocky Mountain Tool offers an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
