SUMMER NAMM SHOW, NASHVILLE, TN, June 20, 2008 — SKB Corporation, a leader in the protection and transport of musical instruments, electronics and rack equipment, announces the availability of its new 20" Rolling Shock Rack cases. Available in three sizes, 4U (3SKB-R04U20W), 6U (3SKB-R06U20W) and 8U (3SKB-R08U20W), the new models enhance previous SKB offerings by adding wheels and a sturdy pull handle, as well as SKB’s patented TSA locking trigger latches.
These new rolling cases are rotationally molded for outside durability and come standard with eight elastomer shocks (load range up to 150 lbs). The load range can be increased by adding an additional shock on each mounting point (load range up to 300 lbs).
A new feature is the inclusion of SKB’s Patented trigger latches with TSA locks, which allow for TSA screeners to exclusively unlock cases for security checks while keeping the contents otherwise locked and secure. SKB is the only case manufacturer to utilize this technology. All latches and handles are flush mounted for protection during transport.
Steph Maffei, Product Manager of SKB’s Music Division, stated, “The new rolling shock racks are perfect for anyone needing to transport delicate electronic equipment. The shocks easily absorb the bumps and bruises of the road while provide optimal protection for rack gear. The addition of the pull handle and wheels provides the ultimate in ease-of-use. You don’t have to use a separate wheel set – just tilt and go.”
Like all SKB cases, SKB’s 20" rolling Shock Rack cases are backed by SKB’s unsurpassed Million Mile Guaranty™ (Lifetime Warranty). All three models are shipping and available from authorized SKB dealers worldwide.
