The use of sloped top LCD TV enclosures has increased enormously in the past 24 months, due to psychiatric units realizing that they have a real need to protect their flat panel TVs. Why you may ask? Well, if the flat panel screen is damaged patients behave themselves on the broken TV as well use parts as a weapon on fellow patients and even on nursing staff.
Sloped top LCD TV enclosures are designed for optimal TV protection but in truth many of them are used in preventing self harm. While you may see this anti ligature enclosures used often in jails and other penitentiary facilities you will most likely also see them being used in psychiatric facilities. Psychiatric facilities require the same TV protection in jails and mostly for the very same reason.
When sloped top LCD TV enclosures are deployed in mental health units many people question why? The long and short of it, is if the flat panel TVs are not protected they can be smashed and used as a weapon on nursing staff or even fellow patients.
