There are various degrees of impermeability and these are sub-divided into IP protection categories. The degree of protection is designated by a 2-digit system. The first digit denotes the degree of protection against solid substances; the second digit gives the degree of protection against water. Depending on the product line, there are containers which offer protection against water spray, IP 54 (K470), protection against water jets, IP 65 (Mitraset or K470 IP 65) as well as immersion-proof or moisture vapor proof containers IP 67 (K475, P472).
Yes, models K470, K424 XC and K475 can be locked with a 6mm shackle-type lock. In addition, lead seals using a 3mm seal wire may be employed. The K410 comes standard with lockable fasteners. Installed locks are also an option for the K470.
$50.00 per case. We have Hazmat certification for some of the cases we offer. We are certified for packaging groups I,II,III. Typically, modification of any kind to the containers will not allow us certify and the modified container must go through individual testing for certification.

Are your shipping and storage cases weighing you down?
ZARGES aluminum cases are lighter and allow for more cargo in the same footprint which provides greater efficiency.
Our cases are up to 50% more efficient due to the advantages our aluminum construction provides.
We calculate case efficiency by dividing the total case capacity by the weight of the case. This metric shows how much storage space a case provides compared to its weight. Weight savings are especially important in logistics, where shipping costs add up quickly.
By switching your logistics program to strong, light, efficient ZARGES cases, you can cut your costs. The cases will pay for themselves with the savings after just a few shipments.
The K470 aluminum shipping and storage case is ATA 300 approved, lightweight, rugged, water resistant, and may be UN Certified for hazardous goods transport. Available in 25 standard sizes, the K470 provides perfect protection for everything you need to take along – even under extreme conditions. IP 54 protection is standard, and IP 65 is available. Among the many included features are a lid with stainless steel hinge plus two lid straps and all-round polyurethane seal, cast-aluminum stacking corners, three fully-welded aluminum profile frames, riveted joints, beading and corner beads for additional stability, and ergonomic and durable comfort handles that are easy to use, even with gloves.
