SKB Corporation has introduced its 1SKB-R4W and 1SKB-R6W Rolling Roto-Rack models (standard 4U and 6U rackmount spaces, respectively). Ideal for those looking to transport heavy remote recording and sound reinforcement equipment, ranging from power amplifiers to signal processors, the Rolling Roto-Rack models offer secure protection with the convenience of sturdy built-in wheels and a handle.


Designed as a complete upgrade and stronger alternative to SKB's existing rolling X-rack cases, the new Rolling Roto-Racks feature industrial grade steel threaded rack rails (allowing non-destructive screw mount installation and removal) and full access rear lids. An optional rear-rack rail add-on (RRK4 or RRK6 kit) allows enhanced load capacity and stability, ideal for especially heavy weighted power amplifier units.


The 1SKB-R4W and 1SKB-R6W Rolling Roto-Rack models are rotational molded of high impact LLDPE Polyethylene with in-line wheels supporting heavy loads, a nearly indestructible low-profile injection molded telescoping cushion grip rubber over-molded pull handle and cushioned handle for carrying comfort. SKB's proprietary trigger release latching system, with TSA recognized and accepted recessed locking latches, enables users to securely lock their cases and still have them inspected by airline security personnel and safely checked as luggage. Additionally, SKB has designed the 4U and 6U Rolling Roto-Racks in such a way to make them stackable under their new 1SKB19-RSF4U Studio Flyer. Finally, the 1SKB-R4W and 1SKB-R6W Rolling Roto Racks are covered by SKB's unmatched Million Mile GuarantyTM (Lifetime Warranty).


The 1SKB-R4W Rolling 4U Roto-Rack and 1SKB-R6W Rolling 6U Roto-Rack will be available in August with U.S. estimated pricing TBA.
