TRU VIRTU

CHALLENGES

The things we carry around in our wallets have drastically changed over the past years. The classic forms of payments have been adjusted by all kinds of "plastic-money". Aside credit and debit cards, we carry around all kinds of cards, payback cards, membership cards, etc. All of those cards have our personal data saved on them.

On one hand, it is very easy to be solvent any place and any time, on the other hand though, the safety risk is steadily increasing. Sensible personal data can- whether during payment or on the road- very easily become detected illegally without any recognition.

 

TRU VIRTU® PHILOSOPHY

Safety and protection of personal data and documnts come first in relation to our TRU VIRTU® products.

The TRU VIRTU® product philosophy stands for the development of innovative and functional products with protectoral functions combined with a distinctive design and high quality. TRU VIRTU® products offer individuality and a one of a kind product- experience.

In the process, high-quality materials such as anodized aluminium, high strength plastics and genuine italian leather are being used, This is what makes TRU VIRTU® products extremely robust but light at the same time and tha is how new product characteristics and functions, e.g. RFID-protection, can be realized.

All TRU VIRTU® products are made in Germany or developed and tested exclusively in Germany by our engineers and designers.

TRU VIRTU® - Reduced to the Max!® means maximum functionality at minimum size.

 

TRU VIRTU® RFID PROTECTION

Compared to regular wallets and purses made from leather, TRU VIRTU® HI-TECH WALLETS protect cards and documents from illegal data theft- so called RFID-Scanning.

RFID-Scanning (RFID = Radio Frequency Identification) is when personal data, which is increasingly stored on RFID- and NFC- chips on credit cards, debit cards and even new ID-cards and passports, is illegally scanned out.

That means, data from RFID-/NFC- chips is detected and read out by mobile scanners from a short distance- they can even be scanned though regular leather wallets, bags and pants/jacket pockets.

TRU VIRTU® products are made from a fully sealed aluminium-polymer-compound or solid aluminium. This is what keeps the scanner's radio waves away from getting in touch with the RFID-/NFC- chip and hereby blocks the scanning and protects the data.

TRU VIRTU® products meet the highest safety standards and were successfully tested in the USA according to the "GSA-Opaque Sleeve" method.

 

TRU VIRTU® PROTECTION

TRU VIRTU® HI-TECH WALLETS offer additional important protectoral functions next to RFID-protection: protection against magnetisation and mechanical protection.

The solid aluminium case or fully aluminium-polymer compound protects cards from electromagnetic radiation and therefore from demagnetisation, which can be caused by mobile phones, notebooks, but also through magnets from bags and briefcases.

Compared to regular wallets made only from leather, TRU VIRTU® wallets also protect their entire content against mechanical damage e.g. breaking apart and denting, weather related influences such as snow, rain, sand or splash water and therefore they are perfect for outdoor and sport activities like playing golf, sailing, skiing etc.

That's why TRU VIRTU® products make a perfect "pocket-safe" in a mini format.
