Protected Chromebooks Offer Lasting Value to Districts on a Budget
Mount Hope, KS -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/04/2017 -- Now that one-to-one technology purchases are a staple of K-12 education, custom case manufacturer Volume Cases has created the rugged, impact-absorbing Zip™ Chromebook case for schools that need to protect vulnerable devices in classroom environments. Getting students to keep their devices in covers is a major obstacle. The slim, folio-style Zip™ case is made of ballistic nylon and offers an always-on design, making it easy for students to perform all normal Chromebook functions without sacrificing safety.
Volume Cases chose a waterproof outer material that is shock-, tear- and puncture-resistant to provide protection from weather, impact and sharp pencils or protractors in a student's backpack. Kids can accidentally knock over or drop a device even when being careful. The Zip™ case has a reinforced spine and thick nylon edges that form a crumple zone to reduce shock to the Chromebook's chassis and delicate inner mechanisms.
The average Volume Cases customer pays between $300 and $400 per student for Chromebooks with plans to keep the same devices for three to five years. "We continually get feedback from educators about recurrent breakage and accidents happening in schools, says Michael Bordack, founder and VP of Sales for Volume Cases. "Unprotected Chromebooks limit the efficiency of K-12 technology budgets, so our goal is to design durable wholesale cases to help schools preserve devices long enough to see the return on investment for these expensive purchases."
The Zip™ case design defends against common sources of damage and theft with additional features, such as:
- Heat-dispersing risers for adequate cooling and airflow
- Corner pockets and straps to secure the device in place
- Cushioned velvet interior to reduce impact and scratches
- Zipper closure to seal and protect devices during travel
- Nonslip pads to prevent cases from sliding on student desks
- Optional support handles for secure gripping
- Full port access to eliminate any need to uncover the device
- ID card slot to display school or student contact info
At just 12 ounces, the Zip™ case keeps Chromebooks lightweight and easily manageable for children. The case is compatible with several device models, including HP Chromebook 11 G5 EE Lenovo N23, Acer Chromebook 11 N7 C731, Dell Chromebook 3180 and Dell Chromebook 3189. Volume Cases offers 25 color options and free logo engraving to give school districts a customized look.
