    What levels of IP protection do ZARGES containers provide?
    There are various degrees of impermeability and these are sub-divided into IP protection categories. The degree of protection is designated by a 2-digit system. The first digit denotes the degree of protection against solid substances; the second digit gives the degree of protection against water. Depending on the product line, there are containers which offer protection against water spray, IP 54 (K470), protection against water jets, IP 65 (Mitraset or K470 IP 65) as well as immersion-proof or moisture vapor proof containers IP 67 (K475, P472).

    Options

    What accessories does ZARGES USA offer for aluminum cases?

    We can only certify cases at time of purchase. We charge $81.68 per case. We have Hazmat certification for several of the cases we offer. We are certified for packaging groups I,II,III. Typically, modification of any kind to the containers will not allow us certify and the modified container must go through individual testing for certification. Please contact us for more information.

    How are K475 and Mitraset military cases supplied to the customer?
    We deliver the K475 and Mitraset unpainted as standard, because aluminum does not need paint to protect it against corrosion. However, ZARGES will provide painting for an additional charge.
