FORT COLLINS –¬†Building upon a decade of its popular Defender Series cases, OtterBox introduces its first industrial use-focused solution – Defender Series Division 2 cases for iPhone 11, 12, 13 and iPad mini (6th generation). Certified by UL Solutions, Defender Series Division 2 cases offer device protection from heavy use in certain hazardous industrial settings, which can help improve worksite safety by mitigating explosive hazards that may be present in these harsh environments.

“Mobile technology at the worksite keeps workers connected to their colleagues, systems and tasks. If that technology is damaged, safety can be put at risk, processes collapse and productivity stalls,” said Brian Jacoby, senior vice president of OtterBox Business Solutions. “Designed for superior protection, seamless connection and maximum efficiency, and certified by UL Solutions, Defender Series Division 2 cases safely help teams stay connected and systems operate smoothly in challenging hazardous environments.”

  • Class I (presence of flammable gases or vapors), Division 2, Groups A, B, C, and D
  • Class II (presence of combustible dust), Division 2, Groups F and G
  • Class III (presence of easily ignitable fibers or flyings)

Defender Series Division 2 for Apple iPad mini (6th generation) is also certified by UL Solutions for Class I, Division 2, Group A, B, C and D designations.

Ideal for use in industries such as oil and gas, mining, agriculture, manufacturing, aviation and designated class facilities where chemicals, dust and heavy machinery are present, Defender Series Division 2 cases are engineered for demanding, industrial-grade use. Features include MIL-STD 810G drop testing, multi-layer protection, port covers, a holster and easily identifiable UL Mark to let workers know the case is ready to perform.

“The Defender Series has protected so many devices across the globe, and now that same proven protection is available for industrial applications,” Jacoby said. “With numerous UL certifications focused on alleviating hazards, we’ve created a case that can not only protect critical devices, but also enhance the safety of the hardworking men and women who use them.”
