The LifeProof Design Philosophy
LifeProof strives to build the best all-protective mobile device cases you can get — and to get them to you as soon as possible. Unlike other companies whose sole focus is being first to market, LifeProof’s aim is to be first in quality. And, when it comes to your device, which do you trust — the first case available or the best case available?
LifeProof Tests Every Waterproof iPhone Case
To give you confidence to go everywhere with your LifeProof Apple iPhone Cases, Apple iPad Cases we water test each and every case we make. Not only that, after the test an independent agent performs additional testing and even puts randomly selected cases through a second water test. We never ship a case unless it has been successfully tested.
As LifeProof employees we use our cases every day, so we only make cases we trust ourselves!
Protective iPhone and iPad Cases Meet or Exceed These Specifications:
Military Standard 810F-516
MIL STD 810 F is the standard that addresses a broad range of environmental conditions, with MIL STD 810F-516 being the section of the standard that is specific to functional drop. This standard requires that the item can physically and functionally withstand the relatively infrequent, non-repetitive shocks encountered in handling, transportation, and service environments. This may include an assessment of the overall material system integrity for safety purposes in any one or all of the handling, transportation, and service environments.
IEL 60529 is the standard for Ingress Protection from water and dust for enclosures. IP-68 is the most rigorous classification in this specification. The first characteristic number describes protection from solid foreign objects. An enclosure with a characteristic number of 6 can withstand exposure to circulating talcum powder for 8 hours with no dust ingress after that period. The second characteristic number describes protection against water. An enclosure with a characteristic number of 8 exceeds all other water protection levels and is specified by the manufacturer. For LifeProof, number 8 signifies LifeProof cases will withstand immersion in water to a depth of 2 meters / 6.6 feet for 1 hour.
