B&W outdoor.case, Type 20, black, empty, no. 1.2816/B

RRP: £47.95
Code: BH1.2816/B

B&W International is Germany's premier specialist case manufacturer. Their outdoor.cases range was developed to provide total protection in normal use for technical and other specialist equipment, although many people use outdoor.cases just because they want to be 100% confident about keeping their kit (1) together and (2) clean and dry! All the cases are completely waterproof, dustproof and airtight, and are available (a) as empty cases, (b) with a cubed pre-cut "pluck foam", or (c) with a Reconfigurable Padded Divider set ("RPD"). They're TÜV approved for use in any conditions in the temperature range -40°C to +80°C.

It makes sense for industrial users who require cases in volume to start with an empty case and specify their specialist foam requirements; volume discounts are available, and B&W in Germany offers a rapid turnaround time. Please contact us for more information.

Other features and specifications of this case:

  • Internal: 250 L x 180 W x 140mm H.
  • External: 275 L x 225 W x 155mm H.
  • Weight approx. 1.2kg, capacity approx. 7 litres.
  • Burst-free 2 stage catches, including a push button safety catch; one problem with other types of 2 stage catch is that they tend to open too easily, and are therefore vulnerable to being opened accidentally, e.g. if dropped or snagged on e.g. a webbing strap.
  • The handle has a handle stop at the vertical, i.e. the case won't swing and graze your knuckles.
  • A unique integrally-mounted carry strap is available.
  • Stainless steel catch and hinge pins.
  • A robust and foolproof air pressure purge valve to cope with the problem of significant changes in atmospheric pressure, i.e. being unable to open the lid because of the pressure difference.
  • Padlock eyelets.
  • Spares are available, including the "O" ring seal - see pop-up links below.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
