Pelican Products Inc., known for its high-performance protective cases and containers, has launched its new online foam customizer, Pelicanfoam.com. The new site gives customers the ability to design simple foam to protect the valuable items they store in their Pelican cases. The new site easily and affordably expands Pelican's standard of premium protection to hands-on customers who want custom-fit foam.
"Until now, access to custom foam wasn't easily accessible to Pelican enthusiasts, unless purchased in mass quantities," said John Luna, Director of Product Management, Pelican Products, Commercial and Government Division. "With Pelicanfoam.com, all our customers can easily design their own simple foam and get the same custom solution, quality protection at an affordable price-point."
Pelicanfoam.com offers individuals tailored protection in a seamless three-step process. After selecting a case, customers identify the object they want to protect by simply uploading a picture of the item/s, selecting common items provided in the Objects Library, or using previously created projects of other users. From there, users can select one of two foam types based on the object they're protecting. Foam options include Polyurethane 1.3 lb foam for delicate and lighter items such glasses and bottles, or Polyethylene 1.7 lb foam for heavier objects such as test equipment and weapons.

All foam is cut in-house at Pelican's west coast or east coast Custom Case Solutions centers and are completed within a five-day lead time. Flat rates are applied by foam size and start at $45. This solution allows the end-user to design the solution without any design involvement from the Pelican team.
Pelicanfoam.com joins Pelican's lineup of custom protection solutions. "From the simplest Pick N Pluck foam protection to sophisticated customizations, and engineered technical packaging solutions, Pelican makes it simple to protect virtually any object and ensure that it arrives in good working order, regardless of the environment," said Stephan Corti President, Pelican Products, Commercial and Government division.
