What makes a phone rugged?

When using phones or tablets while working in industrial environments or outdoors, there is a chance that they can become damaged. This can be prevented by using a phone that can withstand the elements and hazards of sites where production occurs.

All RugGear phones have been conceived to offer robust designs to withstand many environmental challenges. These include cases of dust, water, and temperatures from both extreme heat to extreme cold.
But what makes a phone rugged?

IP Ratings and MIL-STD

Rugged devices are phones or tablets that are more durable than standard models.
How do we make sure that a rugged phone is durable?

Our phones have been put through a lengthy testing series – from drop testing to water pressure, to salt spray.
This makes us proud to say many of our mobile phones have been certified with an IP Rating of 68. This means they are completely dust-resistant and waterproof over 1.5 metres for up to 1h.

Furthermore, MIL-STD 810G means that they have been tested and can be dropped. The height depends on the width of the phone display. So phones can fall without harm from any height up to 1.2 metres.
