Aluminum box is a transport container made of rolled aluminum, which means very low weight in relation to the weight that can be transported and stored safely. Aluminum boxes were developed during World War II as containers for low-altitude drop-offs. The boxes in Aluminum were very suitable for this purpose as they could hold heavy loads without breaking apart.
Alulock aluminum boxes
The transport box manufactured by Alulock is available in many qualities but beware of cheap copy boxes where the suitcases are very often made of old cola cans in a non-correct blend whereby your suitcase is very soft and does not have the strength to store your precious items safely and effectively. We also use Recycled aluminum but max. 30% and we constantly control the strength of our suitcases and box. Our alloy is 6060 which is a relatively soft aluminum this because it is easy to bend and adapt our different boxes into targets. The suitcases and transport cases are subsequently cured in a certain way we have developed so they become strong and flexible like Aluminum 6061.

Our transport boxes and boxes are all rolled up a bit like a "modern caravan", it consists of a sturdy bottom profile which acts as an intervention for the box on which it is stacked. At the top it has 4 stacking corners or a profile all around that can handle the entire box. With the whole profile around, the strength becomes bigger, we call this series of Super Proff series. At least, you're in doubt, please call. The back has 2 or more hinges that the lid flips around, the front is 2 or more closure brackets that can be secured by 6 mm. padlock - or straps in plastic "one-time". The boxes and suitcases are all equipped with spring-loaded handles. We are in softer rubber so you do not get blisters of carrying your box over distances on your trip.
