Let's face it, kids can be rough on devices. At Higher Ground one of our top priorities is to produce functional protection solutions that are built to withstand the expected and unexpected of every day life.
In order to do so, our cases are prototyped, tested, and dragged through the mud.
Part of our testing procedures include a series of military grade tests. This rigorous process helps to ensure that our cases provide maximum protection for whatever your students put them through.
Military Grade Tests (commonly referred to as MIL-SPEC or MIL-STD) were developed to help achieve standardization objectives set by the U.S. Department of Defense. Maintained by three branches of the military MIL-STD-810G tests are used across various industries to help validate a product's readiness for harsh or extreme environments.
The U.S. Military Standard, MIL-STD-810G 516.6 or Transit Drop Test, defines a process by which devices are dropped 26 times, on all faces (sides), corners, and edges onto 2 inches of plywood (which is on top of concrete). In order to pass military drop-test standards, the device must remain intact and undamaged after each fall.
All Higher Ground cases with our MIL-STD 810G 516.6 drop-rating icon have been tested against the procedures mentioned above and either meet or exceed military standards for drop protection.
While we cannot guarantee that your devices are 100% safe from damage, we take extra precautions to make sure that our cases provide the functional protection your students need, such as:
