INFOCOMM, LAS VEGAS, NV, June 18, 2008 – SKB Corporation, a leader in the protection and transport of professional audio, musical instruments and delicate electronics, expands its Shock-Rack case line of products with the introduction two new 4U shock rack models. The 24″ deep (3SKB-R904U24) Shock-Rack model expands the 24″ series to seven different sizes while the 30″ deep (3SKB-R904U30) expands the 30″ line to four different models. Designed from the ground up by SKB’s Industrial Division R&D department for military and industrial applications, these cases far exceed performance specifications of typical MI professional and touring market products.As with all SKB 24″ deep shockmount cases, the 4U Roto Shock-Racks provide a rotationally molded tough shell with integrally molded valance, and they each come standard with eight elastomeric shocks (load up to 150 lbs). The load range can be enhanced by adding an additional shock on each mounting point.
The 4U Roto Shock-Racks feature field-replaceable, black powder coated stainless steel latches, as well as a patent pending compound hinge door system that allows the lid to swing out and completely around and lie flat against the main body of the case (or alternately go lid-less with an effortless lift motion) and then be reinstalled with the same ease in seconds. The front and rear lids are designed to protrude into the base of the case approximately 1″, and their unique double wall structure makes them incredibly stiff where this intersection occurs. Each 4U Roto Shock-Rack is securely stackable with the wheels on or off. In addition, this revolutionary design is the only such product that will open front and back while stacked. Other features include removable 4″ casters, gasketed doors and pressure relief valve. Finally, both 4U Roto Shock-Racks are covered by SKB’s unmatched Million Mile GuarantyTM (Lifetime Warranty).
The 3SKB-R904U24 24″ deep x 4U Roto Shock-Rock and 3SKB-R904U30 30″ deep x 4U Roto Shock-Rack are available now with U.S. estimated street pricing as follows:
