How to Measure your Monitor for a Custom Flight Case
HOW TO MEASURE GUIDE
Made in Britain, our monitor flight cases are custom built to your specifications.
When ordering certain items from us, our design team may request confirmation or additional dimensions from you.
This guide will provide tips on how best to measure and provide those dimensions to us.
Why would we ask this?
The dimensions we keep on file are often taken from the manufacturer's website, which can fluctuate or be outdated.
As the design of the case is also affected by each monitors shape and size, these extra measurements help us during design.
We find it is good practice to double-check with a tape measure (or whatever you have to hand) as this ensures your new Flight Case has a perfect fit.
Tips When Measuring your Monitor
Below are the details of the dimensions we request before manufacturing your new flight case.
A) Width of the monitor screen
If the monitor has a stand: B) Overall height including the stand with the monitor at its lowest position
If the monitor has no stand: C) Height of the screen only.
If the monitor has a stand: D) Depth of the monitor from the furthest points
If the monitor has no stand: E) Depth of the monitor only
F) Measuring 40mm in from the edge of the screen, supply the depth of the monitor at this point.
G) Measurement from the front of the screen (when the screen is flat/in a natural position) to the edge of the stand.
Where possible we ask that the dimensions be sent in mm's.
Dimensions supplied will need to include any protrusions, handles or screws.
Failure to include these will result in your case being too small/tight.
It is also important to measure your case whilst on a hard flat surface for a more accurate reading.
Please only provide the dimensions of the item itself. We always add a small amount of tolerance so excess dimensions may result in the case being too big/too loose.
The monitor should be in its lowest and most natural position when possible. This includes the screen being flat (where possible).
We recommend using a tape measure (try to avoid using a ruler and adding them up).
Having the correct dimensions ensures your case has a perfect fit and is ready for use upon arrival.
What if my monitor has a stand?
We can still offer a case to suit. As above, we simply require other dimensions when including a stand.
As all our flight cases are manufactured in our UK workshop we can build to any shape or size.
