Product Details

Besides Pelican's small, medium and large case, there's the extra large Transport cases. The Pelican 1730 has interior dimensions of 34.00" x 24.00" x 12.50". The case has 5 layers of foam: Base foam, convoluted lid foam and 3 layers of 3" Pick N Pluck foam.

The 1730 has 2 latches on each side as well as 4 in the front. It has extra deep cleats beneath the case to allow easy movement with a forklift. The top of the case has deep groves into which the cleats will fit for easy stacking. The 2 wide heavy duty wheels are each rated at 160lbs which means you can load up to 320lbs of equipment into each of these cases.

Besides the Automatic Pressure Equalization valve on this case there is also the optional Manual purge valve available. On the manual purge valve you must depress the black button to allow the movement of air into the case. This option is sometimes used by the military. On cases with the manual purge valve there is also a humidity indicator which will turn pink if the humidity inside the case goes over 40%. This means it's time for some desiccant gel to help dry out the interior. (This is a special order item)

Pick N Pluck Foam

Pick N Pluck foam is Pelicans standard interior appointment for most of their cases. This no cutting required approach lets you shape the interior of the case by plucking out the pre-scored 1/2" sections. Simply lay the item over the gridded foam piece to determine what needs to go and then Pick N Pluck!

Watertight, crushproof, and dust proof

This Pelican Case is constructed of Polymer with an open cell core and solid wall making them stronger than solid core designs. During the construction process foaming agents are mixed in with polymer pellets, causing them to expand inside the mold. The outside skin is formed when the expanded pellets come in contact with the inside of the mold walls. This process is more time consuming that conventional injection molding but results in a structure that is more rigid and lighter than solid core wall designs.
One major advantage of open cell designs and closed cell walls is that in the event of an impact breaking through a panel the closed cell walls will act as a barrier preventing the fracture from penetrating the case.

A Polymer O-ring combined with tongue and groove design provides a waterproof and airtight seal keeping equipment dry and dust free.

Deflector Ribs

Deflector ribs are designed to protect the hinges and latches on pelican cases. An impact directed at the ribs will be deflected away from the case protecting the vital hinge and latch points.

Easy open Double Throw latches

Pelican latches offer amazing strength but open with a slight pull. It's called a double throw latch because it uses a secondary movement to create leverage making the opening of a pelican case almost effortless. These are available on the entire Pelican lineup.

Large 2 Person Fold down over molded handle

The Transport Cases have 2 handles; one on either side of the case and are large enough for 2 people to grab on and lift. The andles are molded for comfortable carry

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel pins are used in the hinges and handles for strength and durability

Stainless steel padlock protectors

Stainless steel fitted over the padlock holes for added strength and security.

Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve

Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve uses Gore-Tex technology to prevent pressure damage to the case while keeping contents dry and making the case easier to open.

Nameplate Engraving

If you want a personal nameplate for you case, just fill out the included paperwork and send it into Pelican.
