In order to get the highest protection against shocks, the interior of Bam cases are made of high resilience foam cushions, supporting the instrument on its strongest parts. These are designed either as a cradle for the instrument, or as a set up maintaining the instrument in total suspension.
To keep a high-quality standard, Bam decided to make its own polyurethane foam. Therefore, the entire inserts and cushions are injected in special moulds. The foam of these inserts and cushions stands out from other types of foam, offering:
- a longer lifetime
- an excellent resilience (the foam gets back to its original shape and strength)
- a protective “skin” effect for the instrument
- an excellent protection against weather changes, reinforced by water-resistant fabric
The thermoforming techniques developed by Bam to manufacture the shells of the cases call for very reliable industrial processes allowing great regularity in the production results.
The 'Classic': Single Layer ABS
- Extremely strong
- Very resistant to shocks and puncture

The 'Newtech': Double Layer structure with an Airex/PVC foam skeleton
- ABS outer layer with an anti-scratch PMMA film
- Great rigidity of the case allowing easy opening and closing
- Lightweight and resistant to shocks
The 'Hightech': Triple Ply structure with full Airex/PVC foam core

The BAM Seal:
Each of the thermoformed cases from Bam is equipped with a rigid PVC “male/female” seal. Shaped under heat, this seal ensures a hermetic closing and contributes to the rigidity of the case when it is closed.
Bam uses only high-quality fabrics whose performances have been cautiously validated. Thanks to their aesthetic qualities, as well as their resistance to water and tear, they offer a long time lifespan to covered cases. The zipper used by Bam is exclusively made by YKK whose quality is recognised worldwide.
