PROTECTit

We ensure that all our cases are designed and created with precision tailored to your specifications and deliver you the best protective solution for your valuable equipment.

Our Adam Hall® hardware range offers a comprehensive selection of heavy duty case components that are developed in Germany for professional flight case manufacturers.

PLYWOOD CONSTRUCTION

Ovation Cases are constructed from Adam Hall’s ply(2), which is specifically engineered for high-performance heavy-duty road cases. Adam Hall plywood is made out of Scandinavian Birch layers glued together with DIN-certified (DIN EN 204) D4 graded glue for maximum stability and resistance to moisture exposure. The ply is also protected by ABS coating on both sides with one side being textured for a more professional unique look and feel.

EXTRUSIONS

Ovation Case frames are designed and built around a globally recognised, trusted and well-reputable brand, Adam Hall(4,6)

As a pioneer of flight case components and over 40 years of experience and manufacturers of high-quality, robust case fittings, Adam Hall has developed into a global distributor with comprehensive solutions for the entertainment technology industry and all our hardware and materials are imported directly from Europe.

HARDWARE

The new case hardware from Adam Hall definitely makes a big difference to both quality and aesthetics of the cases. Our new hardware materials are extremely versatile for custom options and are designed with heavy duty profiles for added durability, ensuring longevity of the cases we build.

Our hardware have an additional layer of sheet metal riveted into the main dish which are also designed with a rivet protection channel(7). The rivet protection channel consists of specially designed grooves around the rivets which protect them from being damaged in transit.

HINGES

Ovation Cases benefit from a complete hinge functionality which includes but isn’t  limited to, piano hinges, butterfly hinges and hinged lid stays. The new Adam Hall hinges have a thicker profile which is a lot stronger than most road case hardware. They also align perfectly with the grooves on the lid stays. 

The hinged lid stays also have click-stop mechanism fixing the lid of the case at a 90° angle when lifted. The complete hinge array gives the lid and the case a more professional look and feel, not to mention ease-of-use.
