Founded in The UK in 1985, Hiscox have established a Worldwide reputation for a range of superior quality, light-weight composite moulded instrument cases that offers robust and affordable protection.
Hiscox "Liteflite" construction consists of a moulded, high impact resistant Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic outer shell, bonded directly to a form-fitted inner moulding. ABS, due to it's unique balance of properties, produces mouldings which have strength, toughness and rigidity over a wide temperature range. The interior, manufactured from a proprietary blend of polyurethane insulating foam developed by Hiscox, is feather light but, being semi-rigid, provides a high level of shock-resistance. The unique bonding of the inner moulding to the outer shell provides matchless structural integrity, enormous crush strength resistance (up to 500kg) and excellent thermal insulation.
The case lining is completed with a deep-pile, velvet plush fabric bonded directly onto the shaped foam moulding (without secondary adhesive), giving a neatly tailored luxurious feel and a snug fit.
Please note: from 2015, the case features a GREY velour interior.
The aluminium valance of the case edging is unique to Hiscox Cases. Its design not only increases the strength of the case, but also ensures a positive location of lid to base when the two halves are closed. Unlike any other case available on the market, the valance extends deep inside the case behind the plastic shell, into which all the hardware (handles, catches, hinges etc.) is riveted. This method of fixing greatly reduces the possibility of fittings working loose.
All in all. total protection and the perfect fit for the BMG Special.
