G Fragility Rating

The Lower the G Rating of Equipment = A Great Level of Protection Needed

The fragility of an item is normally expressed in "G" units. G Units are a measure of the force exerted on

bodies by the earth's gravitational pull. Products with a larger g-force rating require less protection from 

shock and vibration. For instance, an item with 20 G fragility will suffer damage when subjected to a force 20

times that of normal earth gravity. The fragility of an instrumenet or piece of equipment is usually 

determined by laboratory testing.

G-Rating Examples

Classic Rack Case

Used for extremely delicate and heavy diagnostic equipment that needs to travel but cannot withstand shock or vibration

SuperMAC™ Case

Used for fragile equipment that needs to travel but cannot take shock or vibration. It also needs to fit a narrow space

MAC Rack™ Case

Used for moderately fragile equipment that needs shock protection and is used in a tight working space environment

BlackBox Case

Used for rugged, lightweight equipment so a photographer can get equipment to the job site

ProRack™ Case

Used for very rugged lightweight equipment that needs a travel case to keep it dry and dust free during transport
