Our Shell cases are waterproof and shock-resistant. There is no other case system for the Apple iPad series and
the Microsoft Surface Go that offers such extensive expansion possibilities.
The shell housings are a system solution. For professional use, the cases can be adapted to practically any application
situation with the appropriate accessories.
The shell concept is constantly being expanded and also offers the possibility of individualisation through
special materials or other features.
See below what features and possibilities the shell system offers:
All Shell series cases are waterproof and impact resistant. Nevertheless the iPad or Microsoft Surface Go can be inserted or removed within seconds. Almost all functions, such as buttons and cameras can also be used from the outside. The charging function is the only housing system that can even be used under water with the help of a special connector. Due to the ergonomically shaped back, the housing lies much safer in the hand than comparable products.
In order for the Shell cases to be used in a professional environment, there are various options that allow convenient charging even in a closed case.
For private users, it is usually sufficient to charge the tablet in the housing with the Apple-typical Lightning plug or standard connector. To do this, the supplied waterproof plug is opened and the charging plug is inserted into the tablet.
With the eight sprue nuts recessed on the rear, the Shell housing can be screwed on directly anywhere. A better alternative is to use a RAM-202 module. This allows a direct compatibility to the successful RAM mount system, with which you can attach the Shell to really everything safely and permanently.
If only a short-term mounting is desired, e.g. when riding a motorbike or sailing, the use of the Quicksnapper is recommended. The Car Cradle is the right choice for professional users.
The Shell cases can be equipped with side accessories in a total of 7 positions. In addition to a pen holder, a rubber anti-slip protection, an eyelet and a blind plug, the sunshade and the Shell hand strap side can also be attached here. When buying a Shell, 2 pen holders, 3 rubber anti-slip protection and 7 dummy plugs are already included in the standard scope of delivery. No tools are required for the installation. On request, special plugs can be developed to fit these 7 positions.
On the front and backside it is possible to attach a large variety of accessories in various positions – some simultaneously – such as hand straps or shoulder straps. This allows it to be specifically adapted to the needs of the individual user.
The camera can still be used through a window.
Sealing plugs are fastened on the back, and can be replaced if necessary.
With special screws, the cases of the Shell series can be protected against unauthorized opening. This means that the tablet cannot be removed just by opening the clips.
If the RAM Mount system is used, the entire tablet can then also be mounted in a way that enables it to be locked. We will be happy to advise you if you would like more information about this.
Protection against scratches on the display
Unlike conventional waterproof cases of other manufacturers, the aiShell™ display film also protects against UV radiation and is unsusceptible to sand, which otherwise tends to work its way through the seals and may even cause leaks over a long period of time. With the aiShell mini it is also possible to attach a hard-plastic display cover. This even protects the display against falls on sharp objects.
Many conventional protective cases – even waterproof kinds – often do without a high-quality protective film to save money. Often, this doesn't present any problems – to start with at least. But in the course of use, problems do often arise:
Even though the glass surface of the iPad is very hard, it can still be scratched by hard objects, such as keys.
Since the display seal is not bonded, dirt, salt and sand can work their way through the seal over the course of time. This can produce minute channels through which water can finally penetrate after weeks of use.
The aiShell™ system's protective film for the display prevents all that. The film itself is made of a very UV-resistant plastic. If it should ever actually get scratched, it can be replaced.
The standard aiShell™ comes with a crystal-clear display film. In our opinion it is the best there is to prevent irritating reflections. At the customer’s request, however, we can also equip any case with a matt film. This would be a custom product, however, with a small extra charge.
Furthermore we have the possibility to equip our Shell housings with hybrid glass slices in the display window. This is particularly UV stable for use in southern areas and is used as standard with the GoShell™ housings.
