This small steel corner brace is suitable for building flight or road cases out of 6mm plywood panels and smaller hardware because sometimes all you need is a light-duty case that you can easily move around. Salespersons and musicians might need to travel with product samples or instruments around the country to meet customers or attend shows. They will not want the upheaval of lifting a heavy road case made of 9 or 12mm plywood panels and the cases are traveling with them in the back of the car or a plane.
However, if you do plan to ship the cases via couriers in trucks, not under your control, then you should consider a more sturdy road case build of 9mm or 12mm plywood panels.
If you are not sure which other materials and hardware that will normally go with such a light-duty case here is a list of them for your convenience:
- Laminated plywood panels 6MM
- Small surface mount latch
- Small single angle edge extrusion
- Small hybrid extrusion for 6mm plywood panel
- Small surface mount handle
- Small lid-stay hinge
- Small flat corner, or small ball corner
- Small corner brace
- EVA foam 5mm
The small corner brace is made of 1.2mm 18 gauge steel to offer great protection against impact and bumps in a car or a plane.
