Targus Launches SafePort Collection of Antimicrobial iPad Cases for Superior Protection in Rugged Environments

Lightweight, durable cases are infused with an antimicrobial finish to help create a cleaner surface and prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms

ANAHEIM – Mar. 3, 2022 – Targus®, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced the launch of its new SafePort® Collection of antimicrobial Apple® iPad® cases for rugged environments.

The collection includes form-fit cases for iPads ranging in size from 10.2” to 11”, with varying levels of protection to meet different user needs, from the office or classroom to the healthcare setting or a construction site. As an added benefit, these cases are infused with Targus’ DefenseGuard™ antimicrobial treatment, which continuously works to prevent the growth of unwanted microorganisms, like bacteria, that cling to the surface. 

“As more and more users rely on their iPads to work productively in rugged environments or on the go, there is a growing need for cases that will protect those valuable devices,” said Andrew Corkill, vice president, global marketing & eCommerce, Targus. “And because the cases are infused with antimicrobial protection, it will never wear off or wash away for the life of the tablet case.”
