DefenseGuard™ Under the Microscope

What is DefenseGuard™?

Targus guarantees lifetime protection for your devices, with a limited lifetime warranty to back it up. With DefenseGuardTM products, we make the same guarantee for their hygiene. Typical antimicrobial protection models rely on using a topically-applied spray to create a protective coating. With the wear and tear of everyday use, these coatings fade over time.

That’s why Targus developed DefenseGuardTM. Targus infuses silver-based antimicrobial agents directly into the materials of every DefenseGuardTM-certified product, creating fabrics and plastics with protection that never fades.

Protection for Life

Because the materials are infused, the agents in the antimicrobial fabric cannot wear out. Both the soft fabric and hard surface of antimicrobial plastic wash easily, wiping away dirt and grime while retaining protection.

The innovative design of DefenseGuardTM ensures that every item in our collection stays continuously clean. Silver-based antimicrobial agents cleanse each product in a BPR and EPA compliant cyclical process that both prevents and eliminates bacterial growth.

Continuously Clean

Both our antimicrobial fabric and antimicrobial tech accessories promote hygiene in your workplace with proven effectiveness. Testing in independent laboratories with JIS Z 2801 and ISO 22196:2011 methods shows materials infused with DefenseGuardTM have a 99.9% reduction of Staph Infection and E. Coli bacteria on high-touch products and surfaces.

You can be confident that your antimicrobial bags, cases, keyboards, and mice will always stay safe and clean. Browse our collection of bags and tech accessories today to experience the innovative protection of DefenseGuardTM.
