The greater the need for IT equipment in the classroom, the greater the need to protect that big investment in (sometimes vulnerable) hardware.
Which is where the bags and cases from device protection specialist STM come in…
STM has a deep understanding of what educators need from its device protectors, because STM collaborates with educators at every stage of the development process. Involving education departments and IT specialists at every level means STM is fully aware of their priorities, and is able to deliver a complete range of products to meet every demand. Because we listen, we understand exactly what you need - and we have the solution(s).
While every school will have its individual requirements, fundamentally everyone requires the same thing: protection. Even the most conscientious student can be hard on digital hardware, and the need to protect the lifespan of your digital equipment is obvious. So STM uses its unparalleled expertise, established using years of feedback from teachers and education authorities, to build an extensive range of protective bags and cases that will keep your gear pristine for longer than you might think possible.
Of course, the reason protection of hardware is such a compelling consideration is obvious: protect your equipment and you protect your budget. The pace of change in the digital technology world is matched only by the speed with which prices rise - and the last thing any educator needs is to blow their budget replacing damaged equipment which wouldn’t otherwise need renewing. Digital hardware is one of the most important things on which to spend your budget… but not over and over again.
Every environment presents its own challenges, and its own dangers to your devices. So the STM range of backpacks, bags, sleeves and shells provides an unbeatable safeguard. From the smallest tablet to a big 15in laptop, whether in the classroom or out in the wider world, STM has the perfect protective solution - for students and teachers alike. Because, let’s face it, teachers can pose as great a threat to your hardware as students do.
In Australian schools, the ‘Dux’ is the star student, always top of the class. So our ‘Dux’ collection of protective cases is compatible with the class-leaders from Apple (iPad and MacBook) and Microsoft (Surface Pro). Despite adding next-to-no bulk to your device, every ‘Dux’ solution passes the U.S. Military Standard drop-test - which means even the rigours of a lively and engaged classroom won’t take a toll on your devices.
It’s one thing to offer the best protection for your devices, it’s another to maintain that level over time. The bags and backpacks of STM’s ‘Ace’ collection all feature hard-wearing, water-resistant polyester combined with a super-durable ballistic nylon base fabric - so even the most scuff-prone, high-wear areas can cope with the carefree attitude of the typical student. And the ‘Dux’ collection of protective cases offer bump, bang and drop protection to help your digital gear last longer.
There are any number of scenarios in which your hardware might be in jeopardy. STM has thought about them all, which is why its collections of device protection for education are so wide-ranging. Whether you want a padded sleeve for a laptop, a bigger bag with handles and shoulder-strap, a spacious backpack with padded sections to keep your laptop isolated, or 360-degree impact protection, STM has what you need. Tablet protection with magnetic lid and integrated stand? Laptop shell that protects without obscuring ports and vents? Don’t look any further.
STM is proud to already protect millions of devices in hundreds of school districts, saving thousands of schools millions of pounds in repair or replacement. Our insistence on military standards of drop-protection, as well as extraordinarily durable weights of fabric, means the STM product you choose can be relied upon to give unbeatable protection over an extended period. No matter how reckless or enthusiastic your students (or staff, for that matter), rely on STM to keep their gear safe.
Keeping track of all your IT equipment is almost as important as protecting it in the first place. So, one of the unique advantages of the ‘Dux’ collection of protective cases is the clear-panel design: your devices can be barcoded or otherwise asset-tagged without the need to take the item from its case. Covers that fold into stands with both ‘viewing’ and ‘typing’ modes, magnetic storage for styluses and pencils, and unrivalled damage protection further add to the message: protection shouldn’t exclude convenience.
STM understands how important it is to forge an identity, whether on an individual or institutional level, and how vital labelling of equipment is. So every STM product specified for the world of education is designed to be easily branded with your school or organisation logo. And in addition, every bag, sleeve and backpack in the ‘Ace’ collection includes a clear ID pocket to make personalisation (and asset-tagging) simple, so alongside the school’s branding each student has the opportunity to individualise their specific STM item.
