With information screens, advertising displays another outdoor digital signage applications, modern LCD and plasma screens are found in many different environments outside the home.
Of course, using screens in public areas does come with disadvantages, as displays used in such locations are vulnerable to vandalism and accidental impact. Any damaged screen is costly, not only in its replacement, but with an advertising display that is dependent on views to recoup the screen’s initial investment, any downtime prevents generating revenue and prolongs the time any return on investment will take.
Protecting screens is a complicated business; any should allow transparency of the screen face and not diminish the picture’s clarity. Any glass-based material needs toughening and can’t break into shards, which could cause injury, leaving the screen integrator liable.
Toughened polymers are the best solution as these provide a shatterproof screen that can cover the screen face; however, the rest of the digital display needs protecting too.
Outdoor digital signage is obviously more vulnerable than indoor screens, but implementing physical protection can be done at the same time as weatherization. An outdoor LCD enclosure provides all the protection necessary for an outdoor screen.
Waterproof and with temperature and humidity control, LCD enclosures provide a rugged defense against impact and vandalism. A steel housing protects the device while a shatterproof screen ensures the display face can withstand impacts without dimming the screen.
Ideal for outdoor digital signage, information screens or even outdoor entertainment TVs, outdoor LCD enclosures are a comprehensive all-in-one system for protecting standard LCD and plasma screens.
