Shock proof mobile phones for those who work in tough environments

Tough mobile phones get used in a lot of different harsh environments - it's what they are built for. However, they all have varying specifications, and some of the most common questions we get asked at Tuffphones are; "Is my mobile phone shock proof?” and “Would it still work if I dropped it?"

All of the handsets that we sell are waterproof and dustproof up to the IP67 standard and higher, but you might not be aware that they are also shock proof or drop resistant.

Shockproof phone

Many manufacturers of tough handsets have adopted new robust casings made from hardwearing materials. These minimise any potential damage that may be caused by the various drops, scratches, and temperature changes that a handset can be expected to endure in a rugged environment.

The casings comply with the stringent international standards of MIL-STD-810, which is an equipment testing standard of the United States Department of Defence. Materials which comply with this standard have gone through 24 tests designed to assess the attributes of a product. In the case of our shock and drop-proof handsets, the MIL-STD-810 testing aims to provide a degree of assurance that the phone can physically and functionally withstand occasional, non-repetitive shocks encountered in a variety of work environments.

With a MIL-STD-810 handset from Tuffphones you can be sure that your handset will be shock proof to military standards, ensuring a longevity not often seen in the mainstream mobile handset market.
