Choosing a Computer for the Home Construction Industry

Getac ConstructionWhen you're in home construction, you'll find yourself out of the office more often than you're in it. That means you need technology that can keep up with you. Unfortunately, many traditional commercial laptops and tablets are flimsy. If you've found yourself needing to replace your device on an increasingly regular basis thanks to accidents or, worse, simple daily wear and tear, rugged devices designed for home construction workers can help bridge the gap and make it easier for you to get the computing power you need when you're out at a job site. 

When you're in home construction, you'll find yourself out of the office more often than you're in it. That means you need technology that can keep up with you. Unfortunately, many traditional commercial laptops and tablets are flimsy. If you've found yourself needing to replace your device on an increasingly regular basis thanks to accidents or, worse, simple daily wear and tear, rugged devices designed for home construction workers can help bridge the gap and make it easier for you to get the computing power you need when you're out at a job site. 

Protection Against Dust and Debris

No matter how careful you try to be, home construction sites are messy. Whether you're dealing with sheetrock and drywall dust or facing clouds of sawdust as you cut through boards, it's challenge enough for a person to breathe it in safely. Your computer, unfortunately, is at even more risk than your lungs! Dust and debris can clog fans, stick underneath the keys of a keyboard, and leave your device sitting there as nothing more than a fancy weight to hold down paper blueprints. 

Rugged devices, on the other hand, are protected against dust and debris. You don't have to worry that sawdust, drywall dust, or even dirt from outside construction projects will end up mucking up your machine. Instead, you can have the full confidence that your device will keep working in all of those conditions. They're also designed to be waterproof, so if you're stuck outside in the rain, you can worry about getting your job done, not about protecting your device.

Vibration Protection

There are days when you leave the job grateful that you can finally sit down on a surface that isn't vibrating. From a truck whose motor jostles and jolts to the tools that you use all day, you're exposed to plenty of vibration--and if you take your device with you, it is, too. Traditional devices don't function well under constant vibration. It slowly knocks loose wires, works screws loose, and leads to hardware issues that will have you growling when you go to turn on your computer. Rugged devices, on the other hand, are designed with additional protection against vibration. They don't fall apart simply because you left them sitting nearby while you sawed a few boards or inserted some screws. 

Extreme Temperature Functionality

You don't have to take your computer to the job site with you every time you get out of the car. In some cases, in fact, it needs to stay in your truck. Unfortunately, extreme temperatures--both heat and cold--can have a negative impact on traditional mobile devices. Your rugged devices, on the other hand, are specifically designed to withstand heat and cold without frying the electronics. That means that if you end up consulting with your coworkers for an hour instead of having a quick ten-minute conversation, you won't come back to a device that no longer works. 

Enhanced Drop Protection

You've saved yourself from plenty of spills and tumbles--and chances are, you've lost a few devices to them, too. From sitting on the tailgate of your truck to sitting at the top of a ladder, you often find yourself using your device far off the ground. Fortunately, rugged devices, from laptops and tablets to mobile devices, are designed with enhanced drop protection. When you go rugged, you won't have to buy a new phone or computer every time one takes a rumble. 

Touch Screens for Gloves

You find yourself pulling your gloves on and off several times throughout the course of the day, but you don't want to have to do it every time you need to send off a quick text or answer your phone. Rugged phones are designed to meet those needs, functioning even when you're wearing gloves or your hands are wet. 

You need a mobile devices that are just as tough as you are, and rugged devices fit the bill. Getac's featured rugged computers for construction include:
