  • 49ch by 48cm Base - Large flat items.

The internal hight of all cases is 30cm.

The Top Plate and Base Plate are 1cm high each so the total external height of all Standard Cases is 32cm.

The container part of the case can be any size or shape as long as it fits within the designated volume.

For ease of storage cases can be designed to fold flat and stack on top of each other.  The most compact way is to make a case which can compact down into the 1cm base and top plates and stacked on top of each other.  This means that 15 compacted cases can be stored in the space of one standard case.
