Road Case ball corners cover the joint and seams between edged extrusions while protecting the road case from the usual bumps and sometimes harsh crashes. Finished in chrome, this corner is made of 1.4mm 16 gauge steel allowing to stay intact while experiencing forceful impacts. It also features 30mm offsets allowing it to align seamlessly against the 30x30mm single-edged extrusions that we also offer.
This ball corner features 6 mounting holes of 5mm diameter. This allows it to better distribute the force from impact to minimize damage to the plywood panels and overall structure of the road case. In case of a very forceful impact such as falling from truck or forklift, a strong ball corner such as this one will save the case by not budging easily.
