Communicate faster with Push-to-Talk ready DuraForce, with coverage over 4G, LTE, and Wi-Fi. DuraForce has a large, tactile side button, extra-loud speaker and support for external remote speaker microphones with headsets to make it easy to use even with gloved hands. Because we know nothing is more critical than staying in touch and on schedule.
DuraForce is certified waterproof* and dustproof. So whether your workday ends in a downpour or a dust storm, you can be confident your smartphone is anything but finished.
Jobsites are punishing. You need a smartphone that's up for the challenge. With DuraForce, you carry a device that's been battle tested. With Military Standard 810G protection against dust, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity and water immersion, even tough jobs are no match.
When the weather or your job demands gloves, DuraForce simply outworks other phones. Glove & Wet Touchscreen Operation* is designed to allow the user to talk, text or open an app when the screen is wet or while wearing gloves up to 3mm thick. The feature is always activated; no special setting to turn on. Plus dedicated hard keys for navigation and speakerphone offer quick access with gloved hands or large fingers. So when it comes to working, even in the rain or cold weather, DuraForce fits like a glove.
Let's make this loud and clear: For conversations on the worksite, nothing works like DuraForce's Smart Sonic Receiver technology. Touch the phone to your head (or your ear protection) and the Smart Sonic Receiver transmits sounds as vibrations directly to your eardrum – bypassing background noise and enabling call clarity.
DuraForce also has loud, dual front speakers, activated by a dedicated speaker key located on the top of the phone. Peak volume is as loud as a jackhammer from 1.9 meters away.
