Arden Anglican School recently contacted Armor Road Case for a custom workstation road case to house their Yamaha TF3 digital mixer and a small lighting console side by side, while having storage room including drawers and shelvings underneath. The road case needs to be moved from the storage room and their main hall from time to time so it is important that the road case is designed in a way that it is user friendly and help reduce the time AV technicians has to spend on setup each time it is in use.
Armor Road Cases submitted a CAD design for this workstation road case that addresses the above-mentioned customer request plus added features to help safely move the road case between rooms in a school environment.
This design featured curved top removable lid so that once the lid is removed, the top section of the remaining part of the road case will match the height of the console from front to back, allowing audio technicians to rest their arms next to the console and allow more room around the faders at the lower end of the console.
Arden’s in-house AV technician Nathan mentioned that sometimes he needs to operate the small lighting console which sits right next to the audio mixer at the same time. A slide-out platform is requested so that he is able to move from one console to the other by just turning to his right rather than having to lean toward the lighting console.
The road case also features full Penn Elcom hardware with edge handles making pushing/pulling this workstation road case easy and safe. Edge handles are also used on the top and front removable lids offering more control to users.
