Custom Rack Cases

Our custom rack cases have the rack rail applied to the right and left side with no foam.  They are ideal for campus and studios and robust equipment that does not require shock absorption.  They are designed to fit standard faceplate mounting panels with 10-32 screws. Standard rack rail placement is just behind the valance where the lids meet but can be recessed to allow for knobs and handles.  Jan-Al offers a variety of custom rack rail configurations as well as caster options. Jan-Al Cases has been deeply committed to reducing our environmental footprint by using water based coatings, green construction products & examining manufacturing capture of the products we use in our cases. We encourage our customers to be climate kind.

Rack Shells

A rack shell is a four-sided box (cases have 6 sides) with rack, no case and no lids.  Jan-Al often makes these to go inside of trunks that accompany other related equipment for a more compact truck pack.  They are useful in studios and other places where full-on cases are not needed.  They are also part of pull-over-case configurations. Each one is custom built to meet a specific need.
