What is an Air Transportation Container?

Air transportation containers are closed boxes typically comprising an aluminum frame and plastic walls. They are designed to resist water, dust, impact and shock for optimal quality and safety.

What Are Oxygen ATA Containers Used For?

In 2009, the US DOT established a new requirement for transporting Oxygen systems (HM224B) to protect against explosions in case of an unexpected fire onboard an aircraft.

These requirements include rigorous drop testing of 280 drops, while being able to withstand numerous flame and high heat tests.

HM224B Spec Aer02case

You can ensure that your most valuable items are safe and secure with our reliable Aer02case. The Aer02case from HRD Aero Systems, Inc. fully meets the USDOT HM224B requirements (effective Oct 1, 2009) for thermal and fire protection set forth in the 49 CFR 173.168, as well as the ATA 300 Category I packing requirements.

The development of the HRD Aer02case was the result of on-going testing with major airlines and experience of shipping oxygen units. Its patent-pending insulation produces a packing system that’s stronger and more durable than any other container in use today. Through extensive design testing, every feature was critically evaluated in order to remove all excess weight from the container.
