Road cases are great for easily transporting your larger AV equipment. But how do you house the small stuff like your microphones, belt packs, antennas and batteries? How about using a foam insert?!
Foam inserts ensure all of your items have a safe and secure (+ organised) place within the road case to avoid any damage. Titan AV offer DIY + Off-The-Shelf foam inserts for 19" rack drawers. Let’s take a look at them...
Our Do-It-Yourself foam inserts are pre-cut foam templates that perfectly fit into Titan AV 19” Rack Drawers. With these foam templates you're able to custom fit gear inside your road case 19" drawers.
We recommend EPE or EVA foam to create custom foam inserts - and honestly, they're both good.
Made from high density closed cell foam, EPE & EVA offer excellent durability, shock absorption & can be exposed to water without absorbing it which is particularly useful to prevent moisture & mould build up. Plus they offer good insulation properties to maintain an even temperature around your gear.
EPE is a medium dense foam that's best known as the material used to make pool noodles. It’s easy to cut with a Stanley knife or blade, plus it’s around a third of the price of EVA foam. If you’re on a tight budget go with EPE foam.

EVA hard high density foam (85kg/m3) is the hardest or firmest type of foam we offer. If you tour a lot or your gear cops a fair workout then EVA foam is the best choice for you. It's used to make thongs, yoga mats and blocks, packaging, boat decking and fenders, gym mats and cosplay costumes.
Due to its greater density, EVA requires a Trim Router ($99 at Bunnings) to neatly carve into it. If you'd like to learn more about shaping EVA, read our article on How to Make Custom Inserts with EVA.
