Brenthaven molded cases are now ‘TechShell Authorized’!

Here at Brenthaven, we pride ourselves in being an industry leader in the education tech accessories industry. That’s why we’ve joined the TechShell Partner Program. Our TechShell Authorization ensures that Brenthaven’s molded cases will fit perfectly and stay on during those inevitable drops.

Brenthaven’s Edge Case for the 11-inch MacBook Air is a custom-molded case that provides maximum protection but doesn’t add bulk to the slim MacBook Air design. This case features our Patented Crumple Zone Corner™ Protection which utilizes a unique internal structure and contoured shape to create maximum shock absorption in the corners of the case. These corners are constructed with thermoplastic polyurethane that extends along the sides of the case. Combined with a transparent polycarbonate top and bottom, this case provides ultimate protection and functionality.

A flexible hinge design provides protection for the hinge of the device while allowing for ventilation as well. We have also included perforated holes along the bottom of the case to keep your device cool. When the case is open, the keyboard is elevated allowing for more ergonomic typing.

The Edge for MacBook Air is lightweight, adding only .84 lbs of weight to your device. It’s can also be installed in five seconds or less, making this the perfect case for your device. The MacBook air was designed with convenience in mind. Apple wanted to create a lighter, more portable option as opposed to the original MacBook, making it the perfect device for the K-12 environment. However, a lighter, smaller device makes it more difficult to keep safe. That’s why we created the Edge case designed specifically for this device.
