Mobile accessories company, Padacs, is now shipping Fortress, a protective screen for iPhone 4/4S and iPad.
The Fortress is both shock-absorbent and scratch-proof, with the ability to protect screens gouges from metals, such as nails, bangs from heavy blunt objects, and drops.
In a demonstration video, we observed it being banged by a hammer, nail, brick, and coffee mug, and saw no visible marks once the cover was removed – of course, the cover itself was ruined.
The Fortress is made of four layers. Shock absorptive cushioning layer and dispersive cushioning layer for a double cushion against external shocks, followed by a scratch resistant layer which overcomes the problems of excessive elasticity, and a reposition-able silicon adhesive layer for re-attaching and removing bubbles.
Additionally, the solution is made for simple application, eliminating air bubbles that occur with regular covers, and provides a non-slip grip. It does not affect the touch-sensitivity of iPhone and iPad screens.
The Fortress pack for the iPhone 4/4S comes with two films for the front, and one for the back of the device, and the iPad2/new iPad version comes with one film to protect the screen. They are available for $49.95 and $59.95 respectively.
The Padacs Fortress is available through the PCRange reseller channel or Padac’s website.
