flipIT Laptop Safe®

Convenient Laptop Security that doesn't get in the way

Keep your laptop secure under lock and key, but keep it powered up, charging and updating on your network. And keep it handy. No more time-consuming set-up and storage procedures—just open or close the lid.

The flipIT® Laptop Safe permits complete power and data wire management and connectivity when locked, so there is no need for an extra laptop charging cabinet for network updates. This saves valuable class time and physical stress on your laptops! When installed in podiums, the presenter can preflight the show, then put the laptop to sleep, safely under lock and key, and take a break. The show is ready to start in seconds. Installed in conference tables, laptops can be conveniently stored when breaks are taken.

This laptop vault keeps your laptop safe, and restricts access to data. Especially relevant for healthcare environments and compliance with HIPAA §164.310 providing physical safeguards to restrict access to patient information. For Department of Defense and government agencies, flipIT® Laptop Safe meets National Security Guidelines described in the Safety Act of 2002.

Proper ergonomics for the computer classroom! The lid opens to a lower profile than the laptop screen, keeping sight lines unobstructed. It can be used at the podium or at computer tables, sized at the right height for laptop use.

  • flipIT Laptop Safe product features

    Engineered for performance— The flipIT Laptop Safe is vented for cooling air flow, including pads you place to support your laptop for additional protection and cooling.

    Especialy interesting for healtcare applications, the keyed lock provides a measure of compliance with HIPAA Physical Safeguards to protect a cover entity's electronic information system from unauthorized intrusion. The touch latch is afeature independant of the plunge keyed lock.

    The latch keeps the lid closed when used with text media. A strong push on the lid releases the latch when the unit is unlocked.

    The compartment is formed by a front panel integrated with the rim frame, the left and right sides attached to the lid, and the platform back panel that has "mushroom top" wire management pass-through. These allow the laptop to remain connected to power and data when the unit is closed and locked. An optional telecom plate may be ordered, populated with the female | female connectors you specifyon a custom basis.

    The sides of the compartment keep the laptop squared up with the seating position. The laptop screen is presented on the same level as the desktop, right at the edge of the desk, so the screen is at arm's length--perfect.

    In this neutral postion, the user can be seated with good posture, reducing fatigue and boosting productivity. Reduced neck and eye strain, too! This position allows the eyes to see the screen within a 30° range: optimal line-of-sight angle. The open compartment gives full range of motion the laptop's screen angle adjustment.
