Accidents happen, and we’ve all gone through those awkward childhood years which all but guarantee that if there is something to spill, it will spill; if there is something to drop, it will drop; and if there’s something to break, it will break. CTL understands this and has worked hard to create an ultra-rugged, student-proof Chromebook designed to stand up to spills, drops, and accidents.
Spill Proof Keyboards: No More Crying Over Spilled Milk on Your Chromebooks
Your students have a lot on their plates and hopefully they aren’t using their chromebooks as one. But in the event that liquids are spilled on the keyboard, CTL’s Chromebooks can handle that. Each CTL Chromebook for Education has a built-in membrane around the keyboard and touchpad that allows up to 11 oz. of liquid to be channeled away from important electronics. That’s almost a whole bottle of water! If a spill occurs, all the user needs to do is tip the Chromebook up and allow the water to drain off before wiping down.
Drop Resistant Design Helps Protect CTL Chromebooks
2.3 feet is about the average distance from desk to floor, hand to ground, and “whoops” to “crash”. Luckily, CTL Chromebooks have been drop tested to withstand a fall of this distance. Their sturdy design features a stronger, thicker rear cover frame around the screen, sides, and edges which helps absorb and reduces the risk of damage when dropped.
CTL’s J Series Chromebooks for education feature a textured cover which diminishes the appearance of scratches and dings and makes it easier to grip. The CTL NL61 Series Chromebooks come with a durable carrying handle. And all of CTL’s Chromebooks for Education can be purchased with CTL’s X-Protect (patent pending) cover, which can withstand pressure and heavy weight on top, reducing breaks by up to 90%.

There’s a Warranty for That
If your students do manage to break their Chromebooks, CTL has a free 1-year warranty on accidental damage to the J5 series and an affordable build-your-own warranty for all other CTL products. CTL also offers a variety of replacement parts to allow your IT teams to make onsite repairs. The majority of CTL replacement parts are housed in our Portland office, meaning you’ll receive your orders as quickly as possible.
