Pick 'N' Pluck Foam - cutting tips

 

 

TIP: For heavier items use closed cell Polyethylene Foam

  • Pelican cases are available with pre-scored 1.6 Lbs. per cubic ft. open cell Polyurethane foam.  The top section has 1 layer of convoluted foam.  The bottom section has 2 or 3 layers, depending on size of case.  The bottom layer is ˝” uncut liner.  The center sections are Pelican exclusive Pick 'N' Pluck, except 1700 and 1750 cases. 
  • Place all of your equipment on top of the pre-cut grid.  Distribute until you have a suitable arrangement.  Leave adequate space between each piece of equipment.  
    • Light weight items minimum separation: 1/2"
    • Delicate light weight items (e.g.. cameras, laptops) suggested separation: 1" to 1-1/2"
    • Medium weight items (10 to 20 lbs.): 1-1/2" to 2" of separation.
    • Heavier items: consider using a firmer material (closed cell Polyethylene foam) or a combination of open cell Polyurethane with a cap of closed cell Polyethylene foam.
  • For maximum protection keep equipment inside pre-cut grid area.
  • Handy hint:  For reference guide stick toothpicks in at four corners of plug to be removed.  CAREFULLY AND SLOWLY remove whole plug in one piece.
  • Insert equipment into designated areas. Item should fit very snugly in all directions. With smaller pieces of equipment, save removed foam plugs; cut to correct height and replace (your smaller equipment is now easily accessible).
  • If you find you’ve made a mistake and have any loose areas, cut off corresponding piece from cutout and glue back to wall with spray contact adhesive made for polyester foam (3M  Super 77 Spray Adhesive is available at most art or office supply stores). Follow the application directions on the spray can.
